I am surprised Galfond never posted in this thread-or do my search skills suck?

Cat def makes it.

Yeah I think originally I thought the cat wouldn't make it, but now I have a cat and I think the cat in the picture will make it. Like cats can bend their bodies so unnaturally, or to humans it would be unnatural. That cat definitely has room to bend like so that both the upper and the lower part of the body are more upwards.

Did anyone ever ask PA if the cat made it IRL?

Cat's don't seem to need too much landing space, with such little paws ..

Tiny landing spot:

I predict SUCCESS with 85% confidence (75% stats and 10% bonuses for the confidence in the cat's eyes!)

And since it's the sink, he's probably made this attempt many times and a hungry cat will usually get his mark.

Re: PA calls Jman "worlds biggest nit" jman220/Edit: Will The Cat Make The Jump?

lol sample size

999 of 1,000 cats will make this jump 999 out of 1,000 attempts

yea you see a lot of youtube falls, but thats just because its funny when they finally do bust their ass

Another funny part is watching them size up a jump and then not taking it because they know they will fail

If the cat belonged to Schrödinger then it could both make the jump and fail the jump simultaneously because of quantum leaps.

Well, this post is from 2008, so..

Good work Galfond!

You have continued to do well as a player, teacher and I bet other things as well.

Nice cat.

Every time someone bumps this thread, I'm as amused by the fact that more and more photo and video links no longer work.

Re: PA calls Jman "worlds biggest nit" jman220/Edit: Will The Cat Make The Jump?

About a decade ago as I lay on my bedroom floor doing situps my 18 year old cat jumped over me like Free Willy from a chair to my bed which were at equal height and about 6 feet apart. I was shocked. This cat certainly made it.
