Ha, these cats are so high. (via Erin GG)

In "The Botany of Desire" Michael Pollan writes about how humans and plants benefit from the relationship they have with each other and how plants use and enhance certain characteristics to induce humans to propagate their species. One of the sections is about plants that get you high, specifically marijuana, but he also talks about his cat who would head out to the catnip at the same time every day just to get stoned to bejeezus. The whole book is great but that's pretty much one of the most fascinating chapters of any book I've ever read.

Also, good news if you're coming to Lawrence. They caught the robbers in my 'hood after they tried to knock off somebody else in South Park and, in the least surprising development ever, they were from Topeka. I wish the picture was a little clearer so I could see if they were, in fact, twins or if the LPD is racist and just uses a standard "black guy" sketch for everyone.

for the record: fritz and royce love their catnip plant, but by NO means do they begin foaming at the mouth when they roll around in it. that part of the video was a little disturbing.

Yeah, I should clarify that the Basement only endorses responsible, recreational use of catnip. Kudos to Royce and Fritz for knowing when to say when.
