    Re: The Random Thought Thread

    I don't understand how you mods keep allowing GetBack to constantly troll. Its completely out of line.

    I don't ever want to read anyone saying they are tired of seeing Beyonce' s name mentioned.

    I absolutely agree... those storylines in season 3-5 were out of this world. No other show had topics and themes like that. I remember that for a brief moment in time, Melrose even overtook BH90210 (it was during MP's S03).

    My top 3 females on MP included Sydney... Laura Leighton was so brilliant. The fact that after being a hooker, call girl, 2-times ex-wife of Michael, she finally found her love and was run over by a car on their wedding day... was hilarious screen writing. I cried for over a week at the time.
    I'd say MP was bigger than 90210 in its peak. 90210 was massive with teens/early 20-somethings but Melrose had a wider audience appeal, people in their 30s were addicted to it

    So first thing when i woke up was checking iTunes & Co. but it wasn't there
    I had similar life-like dreams when I woke up sweating and checking the internet for the news. But it was all a dream.

    Same goes for a chicken breed we used to have. They tend to breed them in a way they get health issues. When I said something about it, they weren't really thankful...

    The more I learned about breeding chickens, cats, dogs... the more I'm against certain types of pets, where people care more for their looks than their health.
    My dear, if our kitty has any physical problems I will let you know, this kitty was presented to my little children(2 nieces and 1 nephew) they love our scottish fold kitty a lot, take care of her and kitty doesn't have any breathing, jumping, coordination problems, she is(just can't write IT) absolutely healthy and happy she's surrounded by the children who immensely love her)

    Why not?
    A pet is too much responsibility and i'm not ready to take on such responsibility at this point of my life. Looking after a pet is a serious thing, it is not a toy that you can put away when you are bored or you don't feel like looking after it.

    That's also true. Gimme a vodka and my pearls and I'm naturally sliding into my Brie character.

    The great thing is that Marcia Cross - the actress - is stunning. I worship both of her major roles: KImberly Shaw (Melrose Place) and Brie Van de Kamp.

    But If I had to choose between the two, I'd prefer Dr. Kimberly Shaw... because that character had it all.

    - a doctor
    - a terrorist
    - a mentally ill monster
    - a lover
    - a mistress
    - a secretary
    - a murderer
    - a friend
    - a homophobe
    - a pimp
    - a resurrected woman

    Kimberly did it all and she only needed 4 seasons to accomplish all that.

    Brie is ART... one of the greatest TV characters of all times. I love her. I want to be just like her... including the sophisticated alcoholism and rants in church.

    One should always adopt cats and dogs imo. There's a cruel breeding industry behind buying pets.

    Without getting into the genetics of the breed, let’s just say there are strict breeding guidelines in order to maintain the health of the breed.

    Basically, only one parent must have the “folded ear” gene. This means the responsible breeder never mates one Scottish Fold to another (even when one Scottish Fold’s ears are not folded). That’s why the breeder usually mates the Scottish Fold to an American Shorthair or British Shorthair.

    If both parents contribute the folded gene, then the kitten is likely to suffer from congenital osteodystrophy, a genetic condition that causes deformities of the vertebral, leg and tail bones due to cartilage thickening (a little like osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease in humans).

    The Scottish Fold will usually begin to exhibit symptoms of the disease between four to six months of age. These symptoms worsen as the cat ages. Common symptoms of congenital osteodystrophy include:

    The tail may be short and thick.
    The affected bones may appear thickened.
    The affected bones would be tender to the touch.
    The cat may avoid jumping.
    Engaging an affected cat in active play involving jumping and running would be difficult.
    They may limp.
    In extreme cases, especially as the cat ages, they may appear to walk or run like a toy soldier with legs swinging stiffly outward.
    Slow movement which might be accompanied by lack of coordination.
    Lethargy, not wanting to move around.
    There may be severe pain.
    Simply put, here’s what happens. The cartilage begins to thicken. As it does, the tail might become shorter and thicker. The legs may also thicken which can result in lameness or an inability walk. The feet can swell.

    There is no cure for congenital osteodystrophy and it is not life threatening, however it can become quite painful. Glucosamine supplements or joint treats sometimes help relieve stiffness and discomfort. If a cat is already affected with this condition and it is severe enough, veterinarians may recommend euthanasia as the last resort to avert painful suffering.
    Dear Lord, you wrote me all this dread, like I don't know that only one parent should have a folded gene and it's not allowed to crossbreed the folded gene if both parents are folded breed. This information isn't new for me)
    Our kitty is very healthy, playful, without any physical deviations and it wasn't crossbreed with a Scottish fold)
