Most people here seem to like cats and would want to be one. If you're going to fantasize, you'd want to be a smart, large and strong cat, but you wouldn't want to be one on this planet. Humans would just shoot you or poison and destroy your environment. I was searching through the Star Wars Han Sol...

Yes, you are well read. For those who don't know what a Togoran is, it's a feline/humanoid creature that stands upright on two legs. Sexy and cool.

VHS is dead too. Now there's the DVD war going on (Blue Ray vs. HD), and it's Sony causing the problem again! They don't want to lose again, remember Betamax.

In the U.S., analog will be dead by 2009, so you'll either have to become a Luddite or figure out digital TV.
