It does not surprise me that the cat statue story is from Fife. At all.

Really didn't like the eye make-up...
Also; woooow, ONE whole alcoholic drink? That's really... as useless as they made it out in the episode, as it clearly is meant to apply in extreme cases after LOADS of booze.

Ah, my Great-Great-Great Uncle was Ernest Shackleton. I didn't realise people had resurrected him.

Well... I live in St Andrews... A walk that can be measured in seconds from that statue... Hell I even feed Hamish and let him stay the night.

I need a pair of Bat Wings and a Manticore Tail.
This must be done.

Someone .gif that hat and jazzhands.
That's the most adorable Arstotzka has ever been.

But, Cameron.. does Absinthe make the heart grow fonder?

How exactly does PLACEBO work in this case? Did the placebo group consist of kinda stupid girls age 15-25 who were given juice and told it's cocktails? Like, they got orange juice and were tolid it's Tequila Sunrises? Maybe it was Cola and the reasearchers totally swore they spiked with some Jack Daniels and/or Captain Morgan? Seriously, how did this work?

It's the same make-up as every week. She just forgot her glasses at home because she wore her sunglasses into the office.

Graham Stark, you are a lucky man. That is all.

The full paper isn't online that I could see (abstract is here, interestingly they had real & placebo cigarettes which also appeared to contribute to the effect) so who knows. Alcohol free beer and wine do exist and some of them are actually relatively convincing taste-wise (I've been known to drink an Erdinger Alkoholfrei by choice from time to time, though I'd still rather have a nice strong stout). There's an outside chance it was cocktails of the type that are so overwhelmingly sweet the alcohol could be substituted with fruit syrups and people wouldn't notice without doing a taste test.

I suppose if you're going to spend thousands of pounds on a statue, you may as well make it something everyone will like. Is a stray still a stray if everyone feed and houses him though?

"You get to steal from the rich! And then sell back to them." Given how happy Cam seemed when he said that, are we sure he's never kidnapped anybody?

Jazz hands are not allowed, you go to jail now. Glory to Arstotzka!

I wonder if you could kickstart a vandalism project. I'd be willing to donate to you, but I imagine bronze is pretty expensive, let alone the sneaky welding tools required.

OT: "That butte" made me laugh out loud. Every time Cam is on the show, I get a new favourite phrase.

Whoa, when did Cam go gray?

P.S. Thanks

Of all the hats Feed Dump has ever had... I think I want that one the most.

It is indeed a sweet hat.

No, but that sounds like you'd fit right in with the group you describe. Non-alcoholic drinks that taste like alcoholic drinks:

Non-alcoholic beer/wine

Quinine makes a reasonable substitute for vodka

Juniper syrup + quinine makes a reasonable substitute for gin

Over-steeped tea makes a reasonable substitute for alcohol in most fruity drinks

etc. etc. etc.

Because I lack your level of familiarity with fake alcohol? Alright then...

Holy shit,

Holy shit, you're right! It must be the light, no one just jumps to full on grey fox that quickly.

Wait, a violent military coop? Is this heavily militarized organic food? I'm going with that.

*resumes worshipping graven image of a metal metal cat*

The cat statue story instantly reminded me of Hachiko, a stray dog who lived in Tokyo in the 1930s who also got a bronze statue. Does this mean that Scotland will soon have vending machines selling used kilts?

Ignorance is one thing. Assuming others are stupid because you're ignorant, that's quite another.

My original post was a joke. A joke you decided to take overly seriously and are at the moment hammering the point home while I'm just staring at you wondering why this man is acting like I kicked his dog. Chill...

the stealing of light sfor grow ops is a real deal. my city decided to light its main street with these lights. one night all of them disaspeared. later they were traced to marijuana growing business. they decided to go with more expensive conventional lightbulbs afterwards.
also, these lamps can be used for tanning.

1000 years later...

"And this artifact depicts the demon cat of Fife, who the local village sacrificed women dressed as rodents to for appeasement. Legend has it that the creature once got angry and devoured all the livestock in the village and pissed on the antique rug in the town pub. The smell was so bad, the pub had to be abandoned and was turned into the creature's lair."

Not a military coop, a miltary coop.

I don't know what kind of food that would produce.

Oh, right, that's the difference!
Still, it was distracting me, is all. ;)

Next time... you in make-up instead? :D
