The Edster doesn't need no education, but I did learn some science facts from him during the heat wave..

The temps were in the 100-104 range...

A body at rest remains at rest-Moving around ain't worth the thermal build-up.

Global warming isn't really true. If you lay on a tile floor with your legs spread you'll be alot cooler.

Hot air is lighter than cool air. I ain't climbing on any desk or shelves-it's hot up there!

Most of an iceberg's mass is underwater. Don't bother with any ice in my drinking water, Look at what happened to the Titanic!

"Off Shore Eddy" is a weather term. It has nothing to do with me.

The Weather Channel reports two temperatures, the regular temp and the temp adjusted for humidity......the way they report it is like this...

100 degrees/feels like 104- Ed says, You live in a fur coat! It feels like it's hotter than sin!

And finally, I learned about light and refraction.....

A white cat can endure more time in bright sunlight because of his albedo.

A few times I cuaght the Edster napping in the sun by the front door. :confused:

Because of my melanin content, I was burning the second I stepped into the sunlight-this dude was napping in it!

Oh oh, I hear the school bell ringing-gotta go!

One Thing We Can Learn From Our Cats In Hot Wetaher Is Not To Run Around , Bouncing Off The Wals And Getting Upset.

They Are Wiser Than We Are In So Many Ways.

These are so true. You're so smart Eddie. :) Boy do cats ever know how to adjust to weather.

MMMMM. I think I'm going to have to try the one about laying on the tile floor with my legs spread open. It's a hot one today, that's for sure.

Mine love to sleep in the bathtub or sinks in hot weather. If I leave the cold water dripping a bit, it's even better. Then they don't have to move to get a drink! :D
