I was readin the blog of someone I worked with a number of years ago. He had a big on Book: Softwar - an intimate portrait of Larry Ellison and Oracle. Ending with the following quote which I felt the need to mention.
"People regularly mistake obedience for intelligence. That’s why we think that dogs are more intelligent than cats. .. A dog will fetch a stick every time you throw it. A cat will look at you and wonder: If you wanted the stick, why did you throw it away in a first place? Get it yourself, idiot."
