Ever notice how well balanced cats don't react to trivia? Oh, sure, they chase feathers, cat nip, climb curtains, claw at the most expensive thing in the place, sleep in shoes, eat your food but those essentially are cat things. Their 'cat ma.' What cats don't do is more important. They don't hold onto fear or anger. They deal much better with those emotions that we humans do. They zen out instead ... reacting only when they need something from their servant -- which is you or me. And they are very clear about what they need.
What did we do without the internet? We read books, went to museums, visited courthouses, cemeteries and libraries...lots of libraries. But we can do so much more with the internet. Yesterday's near shutdown is a case in point. Local courts' filing boards posted instructions on the imminent closure of government and filing procedures in case the government closed down.
