Wanderings

Anything you dream is fiction,
and anything you accomplish is science,
the whole history of mankind is nothing but science fiction.

Roy, come and get this goddamn cat

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the first Air to Ground radio message.

A gray tabby named Kiddo became the first cat to cross the Atlantic Ocean by dirigible. The cat was an accidental stowaway on the dirigible. Kiddo was a total pain in the neck and made his displeasure known for being locked in a small room that moved violently in the wind. The cat scratched and yowled and made a mess everywhere.

The dirigible was the first to ever have radio equipment and the very first message from an aircraft to the ground was: Roy, come and get this goddamn cat!

    The wires coming out of the cat’s spine look kinda cool. Also, what happened to that man’s right eye?
