Cat power doing their bit for humans

While pondering should pavement slabs should be made larger - to reduce the danger of stepping on one of cracks - I thought of that phenomena of cats magically make their ways to somewhere a) warm and b) somewhere with a roof on in poor weather.

I propose that cats get to wear a mesh jacket, laden with magnets, and all entrances to homes get a longish tunnels made up of copper coils. In that way, they will at least put something to the leccy bill. Huzzah!

       This seems like a very idea indeed, if not more so. I suggest that it be henceforth, at the earliest.

       Maybe the cracks could be magnetized, and you could wear magnet-repelling shoes?

       Excellent, outstanding, brilliant, sheer genius ! A marvellous idea, flawless innovation. We will help in every way we can. Doubleplusgood !

       (Unfortunately for [8th of 7], he got the polarity backwards. So the cat, rather than being propelled forward at high speed, was merely denied entry.)

       What's a "leccy bill", pretel?
blissmiss, Nov 30 2019

       It is a bill for electricity. What is a pretel, pray tell?
MaxwellBuchanan, Nov 30 2019

       It's a cut-down pretzel; they leave the "z" out. Not quite the same flavour or texture, but allegedly better for you.

       This being the only anno I have or will ever add to one of your so-called ideas, I must emphasize that you are little more than a leech getting your tiny little thrills by provoking the psychopathy of a few time-wasting idiots.

       So should we be looking out for banners proclaiming "[not_morrison_rm] for President 2020 !" ?
8th of 7, Nov 30 2019

       4and20, so what makes not_morrison_rm so much better than the rest of us...pretzels?
blissmiss, Nov 30 2019

       //[not_morrison_rm] for President 2020   

       Thought about it, but I am not good at lying.   

       Currently working on geographic/political punctuation scheme because I was reading a book by David Barnett and it had "... people coming from the far right..." which put a spanner in my cognition I can tell you.   

       ...so ( >>) for people who are far right politically, (<<) for people with socialist beliefs and ( I ) for Lib Dems and stuff like dat.

       Regarding the energy available from cats, it's interesting to note that a 10kg cat travelling at 1000m/s has 500 times the kinetic energy of a 20g bullet travelling at the same speed. Moreover, cats are inherently safer because (a) you're more likely to see them coming and (b) when they impact, the load is distributed over a larger area. There is therefore a strong case to made for using cats rather than baton rounds for less- lethal crowd control weapons.

       We're on it... should have the prototype ready for testing tomorrow.
