holy shit, what? your cat is 18 years old?
#96 - auryn (09/10/2016) [-]
I had a cat over 18, we kind of lost track of the exact age but she must've been about 20 years old.

She was still in a good shape, but committed suicide by getting into a habit of sleeping underneath cars against the warmed up rubber of the tires in the summer evening sun.

Cats actually can live a very long time, mostly because we haven't selectively bred them as much as we have bred dogs. Wolves for example can reach 40 to 50 years of age, but a dog is lucky to see 15 or 16. When we breed animals for desirable traits like size, appearance, friendliness, etc. we can accidentally allow less desirable traits to spread through the gene pool, like dental problems, joint problems, breathing problems, and so on. These issues can end up shortening the animals life span greatly, but aren't selected against, because as long as the animal can reach breeding age before it falls apart the breed can be kept going with human intervention.


Cats have been around humans for a very long time, but since they're already more independent than dogs, plus very difficult to train, selective breeding has not been performed on cats to such a high degree as in dogs. Many different breeds of cat came about simply because of geographic isolation, while those breeds that were influenced by humans were still constantly breeding with cats that were more or less fending for themselves and weren't being propped up by human intervention at all.


The result is, the common housecat can live almost 3x as long as a healthy dog breed, and many times longer than the unhealthy breeds.

I knew I had a good reason to hate overbreeding of dogs.

Yes. He's fairly healthy for his age even if he is a bit skinny at the moment. He is open fed, gets plenty of attention, plenty of fresh air, and is happy. I figure those things contribute to his health.

He's an old man, but still healthy enough to climb a tree to get on top of the shed(as seen in the picture).

I didnt even know cats could get that old. although I had a cat that died at 15 and not at old age, but because people fed her rat poison, she wasnt really healthy anymore to begin with. she had only 2 teeth left for example. I didnt think cats could get much older than that.

We had a bird that died age 19.
He died when we where on vacation and the guy that was supposed to water the plants and feed the bird forgot about his water
User avatar
#93 - iphraem (09/09/2016) [-]
forgot about his water? its not like birds are quiet and easy to ignore. what did you do with him?
#94 - lotengo (09/09/2016) [-]
Well not really forgot, but he turned that water thingy I don't know the name but pic related in upside down.
We were gone for 10 days and when we got back he dead.

Most birds have no means to properly communicate the fact that they can't reach the water, and my uncle the guy who was supposed to feed it and fill that thingy had no way of telling the bird was ill. Bird are prey and will never show that they are sick till they an inch away from death, this because in nature the bird that shows a sign of weakness is the first that will be picked out by predators.

I'm sorry to hear about your cat. Who the hell would feed a pet poison? Did you ever find them?

I heard a healthy cat can live around 20-30 years. The oldest I heard about was 26.
User avatar
#55 - iphraem (09/08/2016) [-]
unfortunately not, we lived in kind of a weird neighborhood at the time. another cat of mine got a rubber band around its front leg, stopping the bloodflow and almost killing the leg. we were close to amputating it, but after about half a year it was healthy again.

I did some googling, and apparently the oldest cat there was lived up to 38 years. thanks to a diet of bacon eggs and coffe. her name was creme puff.

That really sucks. People who torture animals deserve to have their knees smashed in.

I didn't think 38 years was possible. That's really shocking.

They could at least help raid outposts. They send you to Vaas' camp by yourself. You do all the quests by yourself aside from the first outpost mission which only has like 5 enemies in it. I never said they had to do everything, but something would be nice.

They were more useful in 4 because ubi noticed how useless they were.

"I want to play Far Cry 3 with AI partners instead of being a lone wolf"
Why though
User avatar
#1487072 - wertologist (09/08/2016) [-]
Maybe because I like immersion and something resembling realism? It's not imersive when the racist literally do nothing but sit at outposts. It's also not believable that a rich boy who never held a gun somehow kills an entire army single-handedly.

They don't do a damn thing and even charge you for guns and ammo despite you single-handedly liberating their entire island from pirates, slavers, and an entire private army.

It's not ridiculous to ask them to throw a few in some missions. They're equivalent to Toad guards from Mario. They look like they should be able to do shit, but they expect you to do everything by yourself.

Far Cry 3 literally has magic in it
User avatar
#1487222 - wertologist (09/09/2016) [-]
There isn't magic in 3. It's vivid hallucinations. The closest thing to magic was the key items used to find the dagger, but it was most likely a hallucination from all the shit Jason was on. Hell, they could have been coated in something and Jason could have inhaled it.

#1487252 - desacabose (09/09/2016) [-]
That's open to interpretation
User avatar
#1487264 - wertologist (09/09/2016) [-]
I'd still say it's far more likely to be a hallucination considering Jason is constantly drugged.
-inhaling mushroom spores while getting mushrooms for the doc.
-literally drinking poison from citra multiple times.
-taking the pills that doc gives you to remember the club.
-Vaas' fight is definitely drug related.
-Hoyt's probably is drug related too.

I'm probably missing few, but with the plentiful drug filled situations it's almost definitely all hallucinations. There isn't really anything that says it's magic or let alone suggest it. Just Jason seeing it have an aura(which I'm pretty sure Buck never saw it so again it's likely only Jason could see it on account of all the hallucinating drugs).

#1487267 - desacabose (09/09/2016) [-]
A lot of files in the game hint that there's weird magic shit and there's a lot of mention about something about the islands being unnatural
And the magical tattoo
And the fact that Jason literally receives accurate visions of the future
And that ghost lady
And the magic shit that happens without drugs being involved
Also that time Jason straight up got stabbed in the heart
User avatar
#1487277 - wertologist (09/09/2016) [-]
I didn't really read any files, but I would imagine it's all superstitions. In case you haven't noticed, the rakyat are extremely superstitious. They constantly take hallucination drugs and hang out in ancient temples with cryptic hieroglyphics. Of course they're going to hallucinate weird shit.

The tattoos aren't magic. It's a game mechanic. If they were magic, Denis wouldn't have had to put them on you.

The "vision" he saw was of the CIA guy. He likely saw him somewhere and he dreamed it up. It happens in real life all the time. All the people you see in your dreams that you don't know, you've actually seen them before and your brain uses them for dreams.

What ghost lady? Citra?

Again, Jason is constantly on hallucinating drugs throughout the game. Constant use likely would affect his perception of events. What parts are you referring to that aren't drug related?

I don't remember him being stabbed in the heart, when was this?
User avatar
#1487295 - desacabose (09/09/2016) [-]
The ghost lady isn't citra, it's a ghost from a side mission
>If they were magic, Denis wouldn't have had to put them on you.
That is literally why he put them on you
>Disregarding accurate predictions of the future
User avatar
#1487297 - wertologist (09/09/2016) [-]
I looked up the "ghost lady" and it never confirms she's a ghost. All you have to go on is the guy who thinks there isn't an old lady in town.

"That is literally why he put them on you"
That isn't even a logical response. You're attempting to over analyze a game mechanic. I guess gta is magic based too because the barbers can grow characters hair and give them beards. They probably realized it would have been tedious to have to go to someone to put the tattoos on you so they added it as an automatic thing.

Which accurate visions? You mean the very vague dreams?

I'll ask again, what parts that are mystical aren't drug related?

I also looked up the being stabbed in the heart thing. that actually happens in one of the endings and you fucking die. Jason doesn't live through that. It was pretty obvious. If you think that because you're free to roam after the end, you'd be wrong. It's just a gameplay mechanic. You'd still be able to do it if you did the other ending where you leave and go home.

You're also trying to derail the whole point of the original comments. The fact that the rakyat warriors being fucking useless.

#1487301 - wertologist (09/09/2016) [-]
Described by highly superstitious tribal who regularly intake halucinagins. Yeah, their word is viable.

The skill tattoos are entirely game mechanics. As in they are completely optional. You get two more lines, but those are actually acknowledged by others and were put on Jason by Dennis and citra.

Don't try to avoid all the shit pointing to hallucinations. Most of it is clearly hallucinating. One or two aren't as clear as others, but still most likely the result of hallucinating from constantly being drugged. You're trying to search for any undeniable evidence and all you have is a gameplay mechanic.

Again, why are you trying to derail the whole conversation?

I would say just kill them all. If you've not seen any extreme consequences, then it migfht just be an unplanned event the developers didn't consider when creating the game code. Either way, useless AI is useless.

Magneto and Doom are two of the better villains from Marvel! Both have, if not downright sympathetic causes, then righteous causes, and though they choose dark ways to go about their destinations, they have a stake in what's to come! Magneto wants rights for Mutants. Doom wants to save the planet from itself. Magneto does this by twisting and bending and breaking everything. Doom does this by subjugating those around him beneath himself.

One is a terrorist. One is a tyrant. But they both have strong reasons for doing what they do!
