Science Confirms: Cats Are Mean

Cats can be a**holes, and most of the time, they are (aside from those rare moments when your cat shows you affection and it feels like clouds in the sky are parting to reveal the sun shining behind them). But despite the standoffish, b*tchy behavior and simply mean things cats can do, we always gave them benefit of the doubt. 'They can't understand us', we reason. 'If they did understand, they wouldn't act this way.' Well, I'm really sorry to burst your bubble and possibly ruin your relationship with your cat, but I've got some news for you: cat's DO understand you and cats are MEAN. At least that's what the latest science says.

The fifth-graders of 1995 may have predicted the future of the Internet, but even then, it was always about the cats.

Academic Kate Miltner recently received her Master's Degree from the London School of Economics for her 98-page dissertation on the appeal of LOLcats, in which she argues that they ultimately enrich society and make us smarter. Here's the Cliff's Notes version:

Miltner breaks down LOLcats fans into three groups:

  • "Cheezfrenz" are LOLcats diehards and predominantly female. They are involved in I Can Has Cheezburger because it is "a place to be safe and kind" for people who "want to be nice, want to be happy, want to give support, want to smile." Cheezfrenz know and connect through the correct use of LOLspeak (the grammar and spelling of LOLcats).
  • MemeGeeks, as Miltner calls them, make LOLcats that refer to more obscure memes, and are predominantly male. They play around with LOLcats on Reddit and Tumblr.
  • Casual Users are evenly split between males and females. They use email and Facebook to share LOLcats with friends and family as a way of staying in touch during the workday.

Ultimately, Miltner concludes that regardless of the type of user, "when it came to LOLcats, sharing and creating were often different means to the same end: making meaningful connections with others."

Holy stereotypical Pacific Northwest shenanigans, Batman! Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold is set to score The Internet - A Blog Cats WTF Universe, a feature length film presumably about, well, the Internet, blogs, cats, WTF and maybe even the universe.

Pecknold's connection to such a strange project? His brother Sean (who has directed Fleet Foxes videos in the past) is the mastermind behind it.

From the film's Kickstarter page:

Matt is one of the best LOLCat caption writers in the world. He's experienced the rise of the internet and came out on top. Thousands of fans, plenty of money in the bank, a successful career. But one day he realizes that perhaps there's more to life than just viral internet cat humor. So he packs his bags and moves to Berlin, the new center of the artistic and philosophical renaissance, or so he's been told.

Yep, sounds pretty quintessentially PacNW to me.
