Some people say that animals are stupid, but those of us who live with them know that really isn’t true.

In fact, sometimes it’s a little scary to realize smart they can actually be. For example, my sneaky dogs know that they aren’t allowed on the couch, but when nobody’s around, it’s a different story. While I’ve never caught them on this particular piece of furniture, I find their fur on it whenever I come home after going out.

These 15 baffled Redditors can relate, because they all have similar stories about the times they witnessed their pets being much more intelligent than they get credit for.

1. “We had a dachshund growing up and he could tell when my mom was going to have a seizure. He would start circling her over and over, barking. Ironically, he ended up with epilepsy himself but it didn’t shorten his lifespan. They helped each other out. He lived 17.5 years! I miss that dog.” — autumnx

2. “I have a three-month-old pup who got dirt in her eye one day. The eye kept tearing up and she held it partially shut for a few hours. During that time I felt really bad for her and handed out a lot of treats. Since then, when I am eating, she begs by winking that eye with a tiny whimper. Her wink is nonstop. If she’s called by someone else in the home she looks at them with perfect eyes. I get the ‘broken eye’. Once she gets the goods — fully working eyes.” — FlickerAndFlicker

3. “My birds steal batteries out of electronics. Remotes, beard trimmers, fire alarms, you name it. They don’t do anything with the batteries, just take them out and then laugh at me and dance when I find them. Conures are dickheads, but I love them.” — Pyrhhus

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a0bae6aee6ab" data-source="

5. “I had a yabbie in my freshwater tank that is a genius. I one day watched him gather some food pellets into his cave, wait for the fish to eat the rest then a few minutes later, place them in front of the cave entrance. Then he attacked and ate a fish that came to eat the pellets.” — cfb_rolley

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a0bae6aef138" data-source="

7. “When I get asked to do some things, I’ll groan jokingly and do the thing anyway. Now, when I call my dog while she was sleeping or if I accidentally nudge her at the foot of the bed, then she groans with attitude like I would. Kind of adorable, kind of freaky.” — ProN00bMan

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a0bae6aefb7b" data-source="

9. “I had a cat that learned how to open the fridge, and then my dog started begging my cat for food. And then the cat started getting into the fridge just to feed the dog. I patiently await the day where my pets decide to overthrow me and have me fixed. I’m not fighting it. That’ll only make it worse in the long run.” — wererat2000

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a0bae6af0675" data-source="

11. “My cat figured out how to fill up my bathtub. He learned how to close the drain and would turn the water handle and would just sit there and watch the tub slowly fill up. It took me weeks to figure out what was going on.” — Mr-Havera

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a0bae6af106d" data-source="

13. “Not a current pet, but a dog I had as a teenager. Dog jumps up on the couch. ‘No, you’re not allowed on the couch, go lie in your bed.’ Dog leaves the room. A moment later he returns with his bed and throws it on the couch. Gets back up on the couch in his bed and stares at me. — aRealGoose

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a0bae6af1a82" data-source="

15. “One of my cats learned how to turn the internet off. I mean, he realized everybody goes crazy when he goes behind the TV stand and messes up with the wires. So when we’re not paying enough attention to him (usually if we’re on our phones or the computer), he just unplugs the router. I don’t think he knows how much power he has.” — claustrophobiic

Players were pulled from Turner Field in Atlanta tonight as angry fans threw bottles and other debris onto the field to protest a disputed infield fly call in the eighth inning. Replacement umpires, anyone?

We know where the replacement refs work now. Turner Field

What this country needs is some replacement umps.

Virgin Group founder Richard Branson can’t seem to come up with anything that should be off-limits to consenting adults in the privacy of their own homes.

What people do behind closed doors as consenting adults is nothing to do with governments whatsoever.

That covers sex, drugs, everything – it just seems to be a no-brainer. Governments should of course advise on the potential dangers of certain activities, but that should be the end of their role.

His Twitter followers smacked down the notion that tossing in the phrase “consenting adults” makes everything a-okay.

@richardbranson didn't a consulting adult agree to be killed then eaten by his friend – bit extreme. Other than this extreme stuff most goes

— JG (@jgreatrix) June 8, 2012

Is Branson okay with online forums dedicated to connecting the cannibal-curious with “consenting” meals? Because consensual cannibalism? Not okay.

@richardbranson in my opinion, as long as all persons involved are of legal age, consenting & no laws are broken, there are no limits

— Dale Steaky McCarthy (@HuisVanDeSteak) June 8, 2012

Branson’s post seems to indicate he wants to do away with pesky prohibitions on viewing child pornography, cannibalism, and incest. Y’know, as long as people keep those doors shut.

It is sickening that some governments can arrest people, put them in prison and even hang them, for doing things as consenting adults in their own homes. It is disgraceful.

@richardbranson Anything that is a danger to human life. An adult may consent but have undiagnosed mental issues affecting their choices.

— BecC (@OnlyMeFolks) June 8, 2012


@richardbranson any unlawful act. You can't consent to an illegal and dangerous act,eg Russian roulette, friends injecting drug (not supply)

— ludwe maninjwa (@ludwe71) June 8, 2012

@richardbranson Watching child pornography, snuff videos, abuse of animals. Adults can consent to a whole host of crimes.

— Catherine M Kelly (@Kate_Cath_Kelly) June 8, 2012

@richardbranson Consent between adults behind closed doors to harm others in the same room or engage in child pornography must be forbidden.

— Hugh Flynn Composer (@HughflynnCompos) June 8, 2012

Maybe Branson hasn’t thought this one through.

If you’re a book worm like me, then all you really need to be happy in life is a good book, a comfy seat, and enough natural light to get lost in another world for hours on end.

However, if your house is set up anything like mine, you also know that most of the comfortable places to read also happen to be the most heavily populated. But fortunately for us, Imgur user jonnybuilds is sharing his secrets to building a reading nook that will look great in every home.

Check out the design project below. Just wait until you see the finished product!

Stopping by his local home improvement store, Jonny began with two large sheets of plywood that he later cut down into pieces shown below:

Then he broke down the sheets down into four 18-inch panels.

In order to cut the seat backs to their desired size, he set his saw blade to a 37 degree angle.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b6098f1" data-source="

With the seat backs cut to size, they could be nailed and glued together.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b609ac8" data-source="

Next Jonny assembled the base of the nook using a center support and two dividers.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b609c94" data-source="

Our builder then attached the bottom panel.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b609e50" data-source="

Before moving on with the project, he needed to take a “test sit.”

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b60a022" data-source="

With most of the build complete, the time had come to attach the hardwood maple face frame.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b60a1f3" data-source="

He just used tape to attach the pieces initially.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b60a3d3" data-source="

After choosing an awesome patterned fabric, our designer assembled the cushions before scotch guarding them.

<div class="llcust" data-lltype="media" id="ll_5a1cd2b60a6b3" data-source="

All that was left to do was to add the cushions to the seat area, shelve some books, and prepare for a lifetime of stress-free reading.

As Twitchy reported, @BarackObama threw a hissy fit this morning after the House passed a continuing resolution to defund Obamacare. But no presidential tantrum would be complete without a little input from Obama mouthpiece Oliver Willis:


Well, we suppose that’s slightly better than Alan Grayson’s assertion that Republicans want you to “die quickly.” According to Willis, “todays GOP” just hates sick people.

What a joke.


Save the drama for your mama, Oliver.

Is there a campaign this fall that can’t be described as “remarkably divisive”? That doesn’t mean there isn’t still time to win the award for “most divisive,” and Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu Thursday made a bid for the prize by attributing President Obama’s unpopularity in the state to his race.

In an interview with NBC News, Landrieu explained, “I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”

Gov. Bobby Jindal wasn’t about to let that remark go unchallenged.

Do we smell desperation?
