    There is a new study out that concludes that dogs are smarter than cats.

    I hope they didn't waste too much on that study, as they were confirming the obvious.

    However, cats do seem to be more adept at online poker, as a side note.

    Once again, comparing one species to another on the smarts. I just dont get the reasoning behind this.

    Re: Dogs are smarter than cats

    The cats rigged the study. They were just trying to deflect attention from themselves so that they can continue unabated with their covert plans of world domination...

    And there, my friend, is the misconception. While dogs may be better in the live game, statistics show that cats have much greater winnings in the online game.

    obviously this study is tainted by east coast media bias...or RAGBRAI. I don't believe science can prove anything. what does the good book have to say on this...that's my authority.

    "She added that the results show that cats do not understand cause-and-effect connections between objects."

    My cat that can flush the toilet and turn the water faucet on disagrees with this statement.

    Re: Dogs are smarter than cats

    Impossible! Cats don't bark and go to the bathroom in a box! And you can leave them along for a few days (allowing them to plan world domination of course!). And cats are smart enough not to bark (meow) for hours on end for no reason while there "owner" sits in the house with his/her mouth agape. My goal is to find out what drives these people nuts, as in fingernails on blackboard, squeaking balloons, etc., and do it in front of them for 2-3 hours nonstop, so they can possibly experience whats it's like to have them as a neighbor!!! Thanks for letting me rant again!!
