I'm hoping to die while my cats are outside in Springtime.  Seriously, I don't want my family to discover they ate me.  I wouldn't care, of course, being dead, but it might have a reduction in finding them new homes...

Cave, I have a sign over my mailbox.

"If mail is not picked up for three days please ask police to make a health and safety check."

It's "magnetic", so I can take it in if I'm going to be away from home for any time. Pet sitter takes in the mail if I'm on vacation.

I always have food and water out for ~2 weeks.

Corpse parts of saints, were considered in early Christianity, to have magical powers.  Matrons would bring them to worship on Sunday.  This bothered the clergy, this is when they insisted putting them in reliquaries under the altar.

Well, yeah, but doesn't that make the first litterbox poop a bit weird?  I mean, should it be saved with my ashes or something?  ;)

Outstanding idea!  Though my cats will eat dry food until they throw up.  No self-control whatsoever (my fault, they aren't used to it).  The mailbox message is fantastic...  The mail deliverer would see.  The newspaper deliverer would see.

I'll get right on THAT idea.

Use a metered feeder, they might be skinnier when help comes, but they won't expire.

And I hope you never need any of this. :hugs:

Can you move that along, please. There's a good lad.

HOORAY! We can never have too many landers on Mars!

I just heard (from Veritasium) that the latest Mars lander will be able to detect ground motion smaller than the diameter of a hydrogen atom! WTF?

Finally, we may be able to find out what the interior of Mars is like.

They turned the sensors on during the flight, since they expected no vibrations in space.  They wanted to see what absolute quiet looked like.  Turns out there was a small, steady fluctuation -- the seismometers were picking up their own atomic thermal vibrations.

I mean, dayamn.

Anyway, the seismometers are sensitive enough that they will be able to pick up the surface waves from marsquakes, as well as the P and S waves, and they will be able to use those to pinpoint the epicenter of the quake -- yes, they're going to triangulate from a single point.  That blew my mind as much as the sensitivity of the device.
