Then this upcoming (December) movie may be just the ticket to your own funeral you've been saving up for: [^].
Think how satisfied you will be with the precious gift of life, as you depart this vale of sorrows in which so many kittens die every day, knowing your cats are well provided for after your exit, and that Sekhmet, the protective aspect of Bastet, will guard you through your passage in the underworld as you move toward judgement in the Hall of Maat.
This sweet satisfaction: consider how even more honeyed it shall be knowing that you will never see the abomination known as Taylor Swift degrading the sacred nature of Catness with her dreadful mixture of botox, off-key singing, spastic dancing, and paparazzi fueled sneering self-intoxication !
Surely your soul will pass the test of being weighed against the feather of Maat, and you will be allowed rebirth.

these days it's them damn smartphones, and they're worse:
"can you help me setup ..." as they shove it into your face
(that's why worse - unlike computers they don't have to lure/bribe you to their desk/home)
truth is I really do know bugger all about smart phones beyond calls, basic messaging, and setting up standard wifi. my old eyes and fat fingers (and total lack of interest) aren't made for much more than that.
