This isn't actually funny, per se, but the idea of "kilocat" as a measurement is fairly droll.

El Reg knows how to keep a good idea going.

Dropping 1,000 cats from 32km: How practical is that?
Quote :
"It's going to make an interesting hole dropped from 100m, let alone from 33km height. What goes up must eventually come down again too: how is this going to land?"

By parachute, we gather, although should that fail, Kubla Cant wondered: "Can you imagine the sound 10 grand pianos would make when dropped from a height of 33.5km?"

Alan Brown said he'd "imagine them to be almost silent until the last few cm", and certainly no match in the decibel department for 1,000 caterwauling felines falling from the heavens.

Pianos would not be guaranteed to land feet down.
