Can you hear the kitten screaming?
« on: November 12, 2004, 02:27:29 PM »
This may be old news to you, but...

This weird New York based Japanese dude grow Bonsai Kittens, that is kittens put in a flask. To say it in the owners words:

Quote
At only a few weeks of age, a kitten's bones have not yet hardened and become osseous. They are extremely soft and springy. In fact, if you take a week-old kitten and throw it to the floor, it will actually bounce! We do not recommend that you try this at home. The kitten may bounce under the furniture and be difficult to retrieve, as well as covered in unsightly household dust. However, the flexibility of the kitten's skeleton means that if the bones are gently warped at this early age, they can be molded into any desired shape. At Bonsai Kitten, we achieve this by placing the kitten into a rigid vessel soon after birth, and allowing the young cat to grow out its formative time entirely within this container. The kitten essentially grows into the shape of the vessel! Once the cat is fully developed, it is removed (or the vessel broken to remove it!), producing the lovable, furry pet you've always wanted, but it remains in the shape you've always dreamed of! There is virtually no limit to the eventual shape of your pet.


yuck!

(I got an idea for an eccentric collector character from this one)

I have one in the shape of a cactus. The cat is kinda lazy, but that adds to the cactus affect and is pretty cool. Scared a few of my friends with it.

It has trouble with stairs though.

Heh, a prank? *giggle*

Kind of strange how you stop being critical if you hear stuff like this from sources you respect  :oops:

At least my "mad collector idea" was worth the embarrassment  :wink:

We can breathe easier now Adel :D

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.
