Cat-Scan.com is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their scanners, or why.

It seems Cat-Scans is currently redesigning their site, but there archives are still there. I don't know if I agree with squeezing cats into a scanner for the pleasure of the internet viewing public. It just seems cruel to me.

From the rules:
Try to avoid scanning the Cat's genitals. We really don't need to see Fluffy's junk up close and personal.

Fluffy porn. Not good. I agree to that rules.

What they should have added to the rule about the 'Try using props...' is Try to avoid using your genitals as props.

Are there other scan sites out there along the same line?

Pet-Scan
Frog-Scan
Scan-dinavian
Scan-dles

I will research and report back

The Scan-dinavian site I found had a whole bunch of scanned naturalist / nudist pics.

I think 19 should be used for discussion about Cat-scans, and some spin off discussions about other types of scans, cats, and popsicles.

Is the CliffyB from cat-scan the same CliffyB from UT?

Yes he is.
posted by cCranium at 6:02 AM on July 10, 2001


Great. I didn't think there would be that many people running around with the name CliffyB in public.

Now has CliffyB used any of the Cat Scans as a basis for a map/skin/model etc.

You know SkwuashedKat.unr or something?
posted by Mahogne at 6:15 AM on July 10, 2001


This old Cat Scan page has reference to both UT and Cat Scan (of course the Cat Scans, it is a Cat Scan page).

In fact you can even see CliffyB's scanned eyeballs.

But then again, maybe none of us are the last. I mean, who's to say who is definitively the "last" among lasts? I mean life is long and when you look at it from the perspective of say, a mayfly, or an aubergine, eggplant if you will, then the last could really be composed of all the firsts in the world put together in a blinding eye-stab flash of all the monkeys in the world exploding in the same instant, from having misread the directions on the Alka-Seltzer bottle. Then you see that the last is indeed the penultimate, just as the New World monkey, because of the prehensile tail, is in fact the fourth-to-last monkey, in the greater scheme of things. We are the supernova, the mote in the eye of thread 19.

And Paul Hardcastle never really had much to say about it.

You see?

Me. It was me. A single mention by me ( that's me) on 11629 in October of last year brought this thread back from the dead. And I can do it again. Just watch me. Paul Hardcastle my patootie, I AM JOHN DENVER.

Let's see, limericks are always popular amongst the unwashed masses:

There was a young Man from Corvallis*
Who constantly wrote with his phallus
He fell off a cliff
But still remained stiff
And continued his poem in the talus

* A very nice college town in Oregon with a pioneer-French name - Cor (coeur:heart) vallis (vallais:heart), strangely enough in the middle of a valley. Right down the road from Philomath. Nowhere near Drain or Boring. Or Bend for that matter.
