THE CAT ASKS FOR FOOD
It politely taps him on the arm and then uses its little kitty paws to show that it would like some food
These adorable little creatues are just so intelligent and so utterly cute <3

and it looked like it nodded too :3 too cute!

It gets better— the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

ASL student here, and I am pretty sure that cat is signing “need food”. Man is eating cat taps his arm for attention (one of the many polite ways to get a Deaf person’s attention) (can I just mention that humans seem to have a problem with this concept but the cat is unfazed) man nods at cat to acknowledge cat is communicating cat signs “need food” man signs “food?” cat signs “need food!” man signs “food?” cat signs “foooooood!” man gives cat food. AMAZING. The cat knows the difference between verbs and nouns, is able to communicate clearly using human language, and is polite to boot. … Now I just need to find out why this guy is eating cat food in the first place.

While this IS facinating, I don’t think this shows a cat using human language. This could be easily trained behavior. There are very few cases where individual animals have been succesfully taught (human) language. 
Alex (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_%28parrot%29) is one of them; there are some apes who have been taught sign language or artificial, symbol based languages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_ape_language)
It would be really interesting to know how this cat learned to do these signs and what else that cat can sign!

Piano notes made visible for the first time

Music is beautiful isn’t it? The team at CymaScope visualized the dynamic sounds of the piano’s first strike and the eventual plateau and decay phase of different notes. You can listen to the sounds here and watch as the geometric shapes come to life.

Here is a list of the geometric glyphs for each noteimage

Moffat also revealed that Martin changes the scripts quite regularly because he will often say ‘oh I’ll just do all that with a look’.

And this is why I love Martin.

Oh no this is super adorable
