In case anyone is wondering the historical meaning behind this pic it’s pretty crazy. Back in 15th century Germany when enemy city’s were under siege cats could slip in and out of small cracks through the walls that no human could get through so enemy’s would capture cats that slipped out of the city and tie slow burning baskets to them knowing the cats would flee back to the city spreading embers that would ignite the city around them.
Isn’t history cool!
@Atom bomb baby, during ww1 they starved dogs then threw meat under tanks. They would tie bombs to the dogs and detonate them once the dog was under the tank. Humans as a whole suck.
@mycatsanahole, I’ve heard other gruesome dog/war stories from Iraq, but the silver lining; I know US soldiers would capture and raise strays to prevent the bomb attacks
@Atom bomb baby, I'm sure you are right, but surely a cat with a burning basket tied to it's back is a lot bigger in girth than a cat without a burning basket tied to it's back. I reckon a human could fit through a cat basket hole.
More likely that the cats jumped over walls and fences with the burning basket and it had the same effect.
@mycatsanahole, The Soviets tried that in WWII. They trained the dogs to associate the underside of tanks with food, starved them for a few days, and let them loose with time bombs strapped to them. The problem was they used their own tanks to train them. Guess where they went as soon as they were let loose?
@mycatsanahole, luckily nowadays we use drones to slaughter each other in a much more wholesome way :)
I’m on lsd and I was like wtf
@diegobear91, Why would you browse this app on acid? You're one swipe away from your whole trip taking a really bad turn.
