We’ve always wondered if cats are aware of the whole ‘nine-lives’ myth, and if so, if that’s why they do so much crazy/stupid stuff on a regular basis.
From this particular video, there are probably three conclusions we can draw. The first is that they do indeed think they can get away with eight big hits and regularly take advantage of it, the second is that they think that’s all bullsh*t and are just daredevils anyway, and the third is that they have absolutely no idea what’s going on and they’re all just stupid as hell.
Either way, this footage is worth watching just for the expression of sheer panic on the pilot’s face. That’s not what you expect to see on your wing when you’re a couple thousand feet up in the air.
