I don't get it.  I am clearly missing some key cognitive connection in my brain.  A connection that thousands of apparently otherwise sane individuals have - one that causes them to spend an embarrassing amount of time combing thru the Internet searching for pictures of...

I have come to regard the cat-searchers as some weird undercurrent of  world-wide society.  They live among us (they always have), largely undetected.  If not for the Internet and hit-counters, they would probably have remained completely undetected.  But they are out there.

And certain as the sunrise, this page is sure to draw them.
