    I remember working with a substance that was both a liquid and a solid in my 10th-grade biology class over 30 years ago. WTH? How is this new? And every cat I've ever had has known not only its name, but the names of my other cats in the household. I'd say "fake news" but . . . even this is more accurate than anything Fox has ever said!

      Ana Maldonado: I think you're thinking of those chambers where the floor is a grid that you can stand on without breaking it and beneath that grid is a huge fan capable of creating upwards-blowing wind (which goes up through the floor since the floor is only a grid of rebar or something) in speeds in the neighborhood of 120mph with is in the neighborhood of being able to lift up a human being from underneath. The walls are padded. The top has to be open so the wind isn't blocked. They have to be built tall enough that nobody can get blown over the top edge.

    Of course cats know the names their human pet give them but to humans know the names their cats give them? No, so why should a cat come running every time their stupid human repeats the name they gave the cat? Maybe it is time humans pay more attention and learn what the names cats give them.

      +Topher TheTenth When he nibbles you that is him being affectionate and showing that he likes you. My cat had a very diverse vocabulary. He had different meows for different things he wanted and he several meows for each thing to express is displeasure if I didn't respond quick enough. For food, he has one meow for I'm hungry, and anther for feed me! and feed meed NOW DAMN IT. My mother thought I was nuts when I told here about his vocabulary but after a couple of days when he would meow my mother would. oh, he's hungry go feed him or he wants to play. My other cat wasn't much of a talker but she would sit and stand on her hind legs for me.

He could be fast asleep and as soon as he hears his name, he'll give a sign of recognition. He'll respond to both Tigger and Tigs (yeah, girls named him when they were younger). So, this is old news. I wonder how much government money they got to do this "research"?

Never has saying ANY of those names sternly EVER gotten any other response besides her either running up to me for brushes or just giving me her typical "Oscar the grouch" look like "bitch puLEEZE!" 😒 HOWEVER! When she's in trouble, I break out her full name - the real thing - and she KNOWS! 😂 She looks at me like "oh, SHIT!" 😱 before booking it - and I mean BOOKING it! - the hell outta there! 😆

    Weird that America is freaking about hematogen. I am not from Russia but Western Europe, where we make our own version of it. I've been eating it since I was a little girl and it does help me a lot, since I am anemic . It helps me to deal with menstruation, which would be bloody and painful without this snack. As far as I know the blood used in the bar is leftovers from slaughter house. I think it's an economical choice. Any other blood supplement to my knowledge also uses animal blood Don't judge me before you try it. And if you do, remember that gummy bears are usually made from leftover animal organs or skin.

If you are going to be a dick and steal/take someone's property, why would you throw it away? Sell that crap! People end up throwing away good money because they ignorantly throw away something just because they don't like it.

    Cats are not jerks, they are just like people with a sense of autonomy. People who want slaves get animals who don’t know how to take care of themselves, people who see animals as equals get cats. Anyone who has ever had a good relationship with a cat will tell you that they can and do respond to their names every time. As long as you’re not just calling them to show them whose the boss, they respect you as an equal too.

They drain most of it in the slaughterhouse, but all meat still contains blood... Much like the Russian snack-food mentioned in this clip - I'm sure it wasn't drooling out blood either, blood was just an ingredient, as it is in meat.

    "Cats know their names.. Finally confirming that they're just jerks." Yes.. Because American's are jerks when they don't obey just because they heard their names. Cats are proud animals, and most humans are just retards. I can prove it too.. Are humans really that conscious? Counter evidence 1. Billions of devices made with real resources that exist flawlessly in digital forms in ALL smartphones, tons of energy wastes from the factories, and pollution. All over banning those products from real materials to increase the standards of all devices that can hold them. Counter evidence 2. The introduction of google glasses should have made people realize the technology could get better, and instead it was simply washed out of human minds. The capacity for any size screen any where you go, for almost no resource costs of maximum size. Including removal of cheap screens from all your junk standards. Counter evidence 3. We warn you about climate change, and in result you people step up thousands of versions of disposable air cleaner production from factories over the best of human knowledge. ^^ 100 fold EXTRA pollution.. You people even tolerate the production of thousands of versions for each step in mobile computing devices. We shift military assets around you as a warning of consciousness, and claim its preparation to defend against rivals that would void assets troops with nukes. Not because most humans are like lower animals that are so SHAMEFULLY stupid that they are approaching the need for a HUNTING SEASON. To prevent an ANIMAL from exhausting its habitat which could lead to extinction.. Climate change anyone? GREATER GOOD.. Wake up herd animals.. Because GREAT MEN have always been willing to do TERRIBLE THINGS for the species.
