Can’t see why people have an obsession with cats.

Rags deserved his military honours. Guess he was lucky not to have been diagnosed with “bone spurs”.
I’d be almost 194-years-old by the time Pluto makes its first complete orbit around the sun.
WWI hero dog Rags had a popular print media following. Believe it or Not. (Perhaps. I don’t know. It’s not like I was there.)
RBION says, “It is speculated that a silverback gorilla can lift up to ten times its body weight…” Translation: Nobody really knows how much weight a silverback gorilla can lift.
Make it two thousand pounds of King James edition and it would be literal.
Of biblical proportions.
So Rags was buried with military honors,
Did the owner of those honors dig them back up to retrieve them?
I guess that means King Kong could have carried the whole population of New York City up the Empire State Building.
“It is speculated that a silverback gorilla can lift up to ten times its body weight.”So does Bam Bam.
A male chimp one time, when enraged, managed a one-handed pull of over 2,300 pounds. A gorilla should be able to match that in proportion. A gorilla is something like 5 times the weight of a chimp.
I’ll have to put Pluto’s accomplishment in my calendar. That way we can part-tayyy!!!
And a literal ton is two thousand literal pounds.
Take care, may the Thord be with you, and gesundheit.
2178?? Well, Make-Make (mah-KAY-mah-KAY), takes 310 years to orbit the sun.
Orange Tabby ‘Pumpkin’ sleeps, eats, stinks and misses the litter box regularly, and refuses to run away when I leave the door wide open.
The most decorated dog in history was ‘Max’ the mix-breed collie, but my niece was made to clean the dog up and never do it again.
With funding cut off, Pluto stalled when they determined it was not a planet, then continued as funding restarted when declared a planet again.
Male Silverback Gorillas deny being able to lift 10 times their weight, particularly during ‘honeydo’ weekends.
Wait… A silverback gorilla weighs 200 pounds? 10 X 200 = 2000 lbs/1 ton. Is there something wrong with my arithmetic?
I, for one, would like to be around to sing Happy Birthday…
Is there a difference between a ton and a literal ton?
For what it’s worth, I volunteer 3 days a week at the zoo, specifically to work around the gorillas.
First off: “silverback” is a generic term referring to any adult male gorilla, it is not a specific species. And when biologists say “The Silverback” they are referring to the dominant male who is the leader of a family troop.
Second: Adult males average between 350 to 500 pounds so 10 times their body weight is between 3500 to 5000 pounds or from 1-3/4 tons up to 2-1/2 tons.
Considering a gorilla weighs about 150kg, then 10 times would be 1500kg or 1 and a half tonnes.
I can lift well over an eighth of a ton. I use a little trick I call “standing up.”
