Let's just say... some people are more creative than others. They've got more ingenuity and imagination.
Creativity is intelligence having fun. [Albert Einstein]
I reckon one way... and the safest way... to skin a cat is to buy one that doesn't have any fur to begin with. Having a naked cat would be easier on the ol' vacuum cleaner, but... um... yuk. Sorry. Not too many things creep me out, but they do.
But I digress. This post isn't about cats, hairless or not. It's about human ingenuity. I believe the following pictures will demonstrate that trait quite well, but I'll leave it to you to decide whether or not the people who obviously had a ton of fun coming up with these solutions demonstrated intelligence or not... (I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.)
At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes— an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counter-intuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. [Carl Sagan]
Okay, so some of those pics demonstrate some very clever solutions, and others? Okay, nonsense. But funny.
Never ever underestimate the importance of having fun. [Randy Pausch]
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
Sometimes, you've gotta think outside the... box.
