Lucky for us, because if our relative sizes were reversed, they would kill us and eat us without a second thought.  And I can say that, because I'm a lifelong cat person.

They might not eat us, but they might "play" with us in a not fun way.

In 1989, Disney sued three Florida day care centers because they had depicted Disney characters on their walls.

That's crazy, but I'm not surprised. Remember when Starbucks sued that beer maker? The reply is hilarious.

When Walt Disney Company lawyers questioned the University of Oregon's use of Donald Duck as their mascot, they claimed they had a verbal agreement from Walt to do so. 

The university came to an agreement with the company allowing continued use of Donald as their mascot when the school produced a photo of Walt Disney meeting with school officials and wearing a jacket with an Oregon Donald logo.

Check out the white Duck in the photo

Kind of like when a person dies, the cat gets a few weeks of free food, depending on the size of the person.

The New Order song Blue Monday came from a song called "5 8 6" which was originally produced for a magazine. The magazine came with a cassette that you were supposed to listen to while you read it.

Oasis' "Wonderwall" was originally titled "Wishing Stone." While many people have speculated who it's actually about, Noel Gallagher has said repeatedly that it's "basically about a good friend who saves you from yourself."

Neil Young released an album influenced by Kraftwerk.

Is this Trans? I read Neil made this album because he was using a vocoder to communicate to his disabled son. I guess the son responded well only to people speaking through the vocoder, so Neil made a whole album out of it.

He also personally bailed out the Lionel model train company with a couple of million bucks several year and kept it from going out of business.  That was a nice gesture.  Apparently, he's a longtime model railroad enthusiast.

My cat would make short work of my corpse. She's quite vengeful and still holds a grudge because I charge $2.44 for a kibble meal & $4.78 for canned food meal. ;D
That mortgage ain't going to pay for itself Miss Wiskers! ;)

yeah i read the Kraftwerk comment in an old pop music encyclopaedia - there's only Trans and The Dead Man OSt by Neil Young that I listen to and they're some of his least popular work :-)

Also did you know that Robert Palmer did an electro track in the early 80s that he sang in Urdu... yes really...

I love "Dead Man."  Robert Mitchum was fantastic in what was his last (I believe) movie appearance. The scene where he's ranting at the giant stuffed bear is priceless.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find a still from that.  And, of course, what can you say about the cameos by Iggy Pop and Billy Bob Thornton other than, WTF?  Twisted brilliance!

Ooops. How could I have forgotten Lance Henricksen's character and what he did to his parents. Talk about resentment issues.

Neither a toad or frog but a lizzard found in my home state of az. Never saw one actually squirt blood, but they do indeed use this as a defence mechanism. Kept a few as a pet when I was a kid, interesting creatures.
Their bodies can become amazingly flat to squeeze between rock formations for shade/safety.
