Lions more likely to eat humans after Full moon (sent in by Joshua Ronfanui)
Other predators, such as wolves, may also be at their most dangerous when the moon starts to wane.
The finding, from an African study of about 500 lion attacks on Tanzanian villagers between 1988 and 2009, could explain the full moon’s frequent appearance in folklore as a harbinger of evil or disaster, The Times reported.

Triad Cat statue unearthed in Mexico (Dranor44 & Kieo)
Carved in a vaguely Olmec style into a stone monolith, the seated jaguars‚ÄĒor possibly mountain lions‚ÄĒmay have been part of a decorative hillside wall that was crawling with big-cat carvings, experts suggest.

¬†(Just some of the)¬†Cat Meme origins:
Nyan Cat¬†or ‘pop tart’ cat:¬†-Created by¬†PRGuitarman¬†and posted @ his¬†LOL-COMICS webpage¬†on April 2nd, 2011. It wasn’t until¬†April 5th, that YouTuber user saraj00n posted a video titled ‘Nyan Cat’, using comic artist prguitarman‚Äôs Pop Tart Cat animation set to the well-known Japanese¬†Vocaloid¬†song¬†Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya¬†by Japanese artist Daniwell-P looping, to create the massive chain popularity explosion.

Monorail Cat:¬†-One of the¬†earliest pictures¬†of monorail cat found is from the website catmas.com‚Äôs blog section, dated from November 2, 2006. The picture is of a cat flopped over a metal-framed mirror, which makes the cat look like a monorail.
Happy Cat: -The original image was from a¬†Russian website¬†for the cat food brand “Happy Cat”, now out of business. Discovered in 2003 by¬†Something Awful, Happycat was revived in 2005 by¬†YTMND, and now is never used, except perhaps on¬†Caturday.
In 2007,¬†a caption was placed¬†on Happycat, “I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER”, and shortly after,¬†I Can Has Cheezburger, a blog for captioned cats, was created. This site proved extremely popular, and was sold in September, 2007 for $2,000,000.00, proving once again that the internet loves cats.
LolCats: -Typically, a ‘lolcat’ image refers to the combining a cat photograph¬†with text intended to contribute¬†humour. The text is often¬†idiosyncratic¬†and grammatically incorrect, and its use in this way is known as “lolspeak” or “kitty pidgin”.
- On November 16, 2005,¬†Caturday blog, a¬†Blogspot¬†blog, appeared.
- On July 15, 2006, an entry for¬†“caterday”¬†was made in¬†Urban Dictionary. By October, 2006, an entry with the correct spelling appeared.
- On September 3, 2006,¬†Caturday, a¬†LiveJournal¬†community, was set up.
Longcat: -Longcat,¬†being of the first cat memes,¬†was first posted on¬†2ch¬†by a¬†Japanese¬†man. Longcat’s real name is Shiroi, which is Japanese for “white”. “She” is adorable and regardless of Shiroi’s real life gender, Longcat will almost always be referred to as male.
‚ÄúSurely we all know the Catlong, the beautiful cat of immeasurable length, was considered the undisputed king in extent across the internet ‚Ä¶ But recently something happened that nobody expected, among the constant stream of horrors and monstrosities that throws the infinite network, we found tacgnol‚Ä¶
TacgnoL, a cat too long, How long?, Do not know, but some go so far as to compare its size with the very Longcat, many refuse even to think that a cat could become longer than long cat , is blasphemy! The truth is that unlike the benevolent cat long tacgnoL is evil, this is clearly evident from his dark hair and devilish eyes, window to the horrors that this animal may have on the network. A small group tacgnoL sees a sort of balance with the cat for long, together form a Ying-Yang feline long it would maintain a balance in the network ‚Ä¶
Shortly after the first appearance of the image of tacgnoL, find another image, which seems to bolster the theory that two cats, both Longcat as tacgnoL since the beginning of the network have been there to balance it and allow the constant flow of data ‚Ä¶”
‚ÄúCeiling cat will warn Anonymous that Catnarok is nigh. It will be the meow of doom. The Internet Hate Machine will begin to operate at maximum force. Limecat will not be amused. Happy Snake will be happy. The pool will be closed. Raptor Jesus will go extinct. Auschwitz will be fired up again. Gay porn will be posted on every MySpace page. All iPods will be stolen. Curtains will be drawn.¬†LOL¬†will be corrupted. No dogs will be left to buy. All furfags will be yiffing in hell. Lazers will be charged to previously unknown levels.
It will be the Day of Reckoning. ‚Äú
