Mar 24th 2017 Kill and Be Killed
Everyone knows cats are cruel, right? When they catch a bird or small animal, they tease it. They try to make it run. If it does, they pounce again. Cats might say they’re giving their prey a sporting chance to escape, but we know the odds are long in the cat’s favor. What evil creatures! They’re not like us at all. When we kill for fun, it’s on a video screen. We can blow other persons and creatures away by the hundreds, and nothing gets hurt. Indeed, the more popular genres of video games are the more violent; while real killing is abhorrent, pixelated killing is great fun! Now, if we could only teach cats to play video games and replace real killing with play killing. Play killing is harmless! Isn’t it? OK, I’ve officially gone over to the old-man side.
