If scientists could explain life, they would have already made a living creature from scratch. Science simply cannot explain what is beyond its scope of s...

Notice, these were balloons with cameras that have not include...

Do dogs or cats make better companions?


I think dogs make better companions because 1.They are more loyal. I heard stories of dogs sacrificing their lives to save their owner. So they are more loyal. And I have not heard any stories of cats being loyal. Cats are so independent, that they might not even need anybody. 2.Dogs can be taught tricks more easily than cats Dogs can be taught tricks more easily than cats because if you try to teach a cat, they are most likely to scratch you ,just walk away or both. most dogs do try to lea...
