Why the platypus?

(And no, there's not a word missing at the end of the question there.  Seriously, what's the reason for the platypus?)

I've heard two reasons, both equally irreverent.

1) 'Daddy!  Look what I made!'  'That's nice, Son - here, I'll go put it over here in Australia, right next to the echidna You made yesterday.'
2) Third day:  God creates plants, fruit-bearing trees and *ahem* grass.  Sixth day: 'Duuuuude... I think I'll call it a platypus...'

I've actually seen that done - it typically involves making the vibrations tangible (hand on the back end of a piano or speakers) or visible (dust on top of the instrument).

I have heard some cinemas have special sessions for deaf people. I am not sure how it works, but it seems to be described in the subtitles.

But-- that is only the basic concept. The idea.

There used to be a cable channel that catered to the blind or deaf (didn't work too well for blind and deaf).  To manage a movie for the blind, they used the second audio program to have both the spoken dialog and a voiceover that described the scene.  Closed captioning described major sounds (thunderclap, car crash, whispering, crowd noise, dramatic music and so forth), but you couldn't really get anything better than that.

Only if you start out that fast, and then it's harder and harder to slow down.

Since a cat always lands on its feet, and buttered toast always lands butter-side down, can you create perpetual motion by strapping buttered toast to the back of a cat?

Um - individual body chemistry?  And I'm saying that because mine wasn't. (Sorry, if that's TMI.)

This isn't quite an answerless question, but it's something to ponder for about three seconds.
