Dead cat turned into helicopter
« on: June 04, 2012, 08:19:29 PM »
A cat that was unfortunately killed by a car has been made into a helicopter.



Check out the video. You'll believe a dead cat can fly.

Disturbing. People have too much luxury and time on their hands.

i could never understand the mentality here. "Oh my god, my kity died. Quick, let's turn him into a helicoptor, lulz!"
Me:What are you looking at Eminem?
Brother: Nothing, Harry Potter.

I love to read books, just not your Bible. i support gay rights and women's rights. Why? Because i'm tired of the hate, stupidity, and your desire to control us all and make up lies.

It's surreal, it's macabre... And it's pretty darned cute.

I also see a potential financial windfall here:  "Hey, can I rent the Orvillecopter to strafe the pigeons on my roof?"

The mechanism is a "quadracopter", All the rage in RC modeldom right now. Using the cat is a pretty sick thing to do. Neither cute nor funny!

I dunno.  If somebody was into the whole 'taxidermy' thing, I could see where this wouldn't be such a stretch.  Just another way to mount a dead animal skin.  Not like the cat cares.

    I'm surprised that I think this is funny at all, considering I'm a cat lover. I couldn't do this to one of my little guys though.

I'm a cat lover myself and i would rather die than to do that to a cat, alive or dead.

They didn't seem to have a problem terrorizing cows with their catcopter.

I don't see why it would be appalling? Like others have said it's just the equivalent of taxidermy. If you don't find taxidermy appalling what makes this so bad?

     I don't really think it is all that bad. I just wouldn't do it to any of my cats if they passed away. I do find taxidermy creepy, but that's just me. :)

Hey, maybe that is how they brought Jesus back from the grave.  He was stuffed.

I think it's alright.

I had my Gran stuffed when she died last year; now she sits in her favourite rocking-chair here in the front-room. She loves the forum, by the way, thinks you're all very funny.

Don't you, Gran? Eh? Course you do...

It may not have been their cat.  Dead strays make just as good a helicopter, I'm sure. 

If you can't do it to your own pet, do it to someone else's!

It's how he ascended to heaven. Spreadeagled with a rotor fastened to each limb. One of the disciples working the remote behind a rock.

A minor peddler of modern art just got world wide exposure. What is not to understand?

I was watching American Pickers... they showed an awesome collection of animals that should not exist! Taxidermy can create any mutation your imagination can think of! I respect the art, and even am amazed by some people's talents.

That being said, I don't personally own any taxidermy, it freaks me out. I don't even like dolls, the thought of a dead animals sitting in my house just doesn't sit well with me.

I have dead animals in my fridge. Chicken, cow and pig.

I may eat them later.

Or maybe I'll put the sausages on the sofa and we'll watch a movie together.

It's all good.

Two observations ... 'Catcopter' + 'Al Quaida's number two gets offed by drone' on the same day ... coincidence?

And this bloke was on Belgian TV yesterday ... he said his surviving cat thought his buddy being turned into a flying machine of doom was awesome.
Now, anyone who's ever owned a cat knows that a cat's reaction to anything and everything[1] is 'meh'.
So Catcopterman was doing a bit of ... SPAC? Self Projection As Cat?

Why don't we do this to humans? Why not put them in a RC golf cart and run them up and down the street?

Actually, I'm not for taxidermy. But, even in saying that: there's a difference from showcasing an animal and using it as some toy or mechanical device.

It is not the same thing.

the catgut strings of the worlds smallest violins are howling in pain

cut by the callous
cat by the callous
that cut needs stitching
that cat needs stretching
catgut sutures
will suit yas
but it may leave a scar
callous gives callus
ignore my flight of fantasy if it offends
at least this cat
nine lives and all less
than flattered by the tired chariot of death
can fly to heaven to
play the lute fresh strung
with its own gut chords flesh string

Of course I realize that! I'm not that naive! But something about a stuffed dead animal sitting there, looking at me with it's beady eyes... I just get the heebeegeebees!

I think there are those among us who find that to be an equally humerus visualization.
