Zero-Gravity Cats...and Ultrarunning

From the always entertaining Dependable Renegade, a link to YouTube and cats floating in zero-gravity.  And the question: Why were they training kitties to become astronauts?

The video from YouTube:

Oh, and the link to Ultrarunning?  Every once in awhile--doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's magical--you have a run when your feet merely skim the trail, you literally scamper over rocks and roots as though you were weightless.  It all suddenly becomes as easy as a bird in flight.  Seeing these weightless kitties makes me think of that type of magical running.

See a previous Mister Tristan post here, complete with pictures.


  1. I LOVE those runs. I had one a couple weeks back on the treadmill of all places. From start to finish, 8 miles felt like 2 and my feet seemed to literally float across the belt.

    If only we could figure out what makes that happen and bottle it - we'd be millionaires!!!
