It's the end of the world ...

What would you say is the biggest threat to humanity* right now?

Do you feel you can do anything about it?

If yes, what do you do? If no, who else could do something about it and what? Do you care?

* I'd prefer more specific answers than "humanity itself". More like, what circumstance, caused or not caused by humans.

Cat help

I have 2 10 month old cats. One male, one female. They're litter mates, both have been fixed. They've never been separated apart from a few days in December after they were fixed and we had to leave them alone. They're indoor cats.
They've always been best buddies, cuddled up together, cleaning each other. But over the past few weeks they've been fighting. More than the play fighting they've always done. They hiss at eachother and yesterday I had to break up their fighting as the girl cat couldn't get away on her own.
Is this normal? Is there something I should be doing to help?

Also, in the next few weeks my husband and I are moving house. Then a few weeks later (hopefully not before) were having our first baby. Is there anything I can do for my fur babies to adjust to all the changes happening?

What's the last obvious thing you completely overlooked?

I'm still laughing about this morning.  I've been out of work sick for most of the past couple of weeks.  Heading back today, I had to wash work clothes last night.

My boyfriend went to work an hour prior to me, but we always wake up at the same time because I need a lot longer to get ready.  He got my work clothes out of the basement, ironed them, cleaned the cat hair off of them, and had them folded and ready for me to wear when he left.

What he didn't do was realize that my alarms didn't go off and I was still sleeping when I should have been up right along with him.  Luckily, I woke up on my own with about half an hour to get ready and having the clothes prepped saved my butt.  Still... really?  I'm debating on whether or not to even tell him.  :)

Hero in a Half-Shell

Recently I was talking with my brother-in-law about how hard I've been working lately, how many hours, etc. And suddenly he busts out with the comment...

"What are you, a Ninja Turtle?!"

...Which just struck me as one of the funniest, most random things I've heard in a long time. Bonus points for his creative wording, and surely made even funnier by the randomness factor.

What did someone say to you lately that just struck you as the funniest thing?
