    BBC realises Cats 'exploit' humans by purring. Something every cat owner already knows.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    It never needed confirming, but it's good that scientists have concrete empirical evidence that cats are evil, arrogant, ungrateful bastards.

    Don't dogs exploit their owners by walking down the street and shitting up a lamp-post and making their owners pick it up after them? Oh, that's right, most dog-owners don't bother. Nice.

    can't scientists do something useful like find a cure cancer or aids?

    Seriously, don't scientists have anything a little more important/less obvious to be investigating?

    Edit - What Letsgo said

    You wait. A cat will 'exploit' its owner into deleting this thesis and their reign will continue.

    Just because you're technically a scientist, doesn't mean you're not an idiot.

    Cat owners just let their animals shit in other people's gardens.

    Also, I don't quite understand the use of the word 'exploit'? I mean, surely any animal that relies on you (and is clever enough to do so) will try and annoy you until you do what it wants?

    I once looked after a friend's cat while he was on holiday. The day he got back I cleaned the litter tray and did a big shit in it. When he turned up I said 'I've been a bit worried as he hasn't had a poo in days... oh... looks like he's been.'

    IT WAS FUNNY

    Perhaps cats are a clever ploy invented by dogs to distract us from their manipulative ways.

    Hmmm I think it is more the manic wailing outside the window at 3am asking to be let in that exploits me to get out of bed and let them in so that they will shut the fuck up.

    There's a reason it's called caterwauling. Put the cat under a wall.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Surely cats don't need to exploit their owners, what with cat lovers having never been given love and attention as a child.

    Owning and liking are two very different things!

    BGiE Man Rule #42: Don't ask other men how you should handle a date, it makes you look like a pussy who has never kissed a girl before.

    Cats are cunts for want of a less rude word.

    Dogs are awesome. Get a dog.

    Because all scientists specialize in biology and medicine, amirite?

    That's pretty much all the proof I needed to start exterminating them.

    One of our cats can't purr, instead it sort of grunts, which is probably not quite as effective. ^.^

    BGiE was just showing off how much of a playa he is as if anyone cares.
