Cats are cute in zero G, dogs are more fun:

That's funny, but any loose objects in the cockpit are a huge no-no, especially when doing aerobatics. Having an unsecured dog in the cabin is unbelievably irresponsible.

I hope the animal was provided with some kind of protection for its very sensitive ears.

Cyclists on the footpath and pressing the bell behind you so you'll move out of the way!Darn it!You should be on the road
Not in this country... We have shared pedestrian/cycle paths (with rules, often marked, about who goes on which side of the path) alongside many roads. So dinging the bell to alert a pedestrian that they're obstructing the cycle lane is quite acceptable. And it's much safer than cycling on the road.

OTOH, on our local cycle path to the next town there're often parties of pensioners strolling along who jump out of their SKINS if the hear a bike bell. They spin round, see us and clutch each other in a panic as if we're the cavalry about to cut them down.

As Alexander Armstrong says to EVERY contestant on Pointless when discussing their hobbies/jobs, "That sounds like fun".

Man drives car through John Cougar Mellencamp's front gates to arrest him for "supporting the government":
Mellencamp's troubles

Spoiler: Mr Mellencamp does not support the government. I expect someone has a red face today!
