Loadsa toxic waste in China.  ;)
So perhaps the whole winged Lisa thing isn't so far from the truth?
Well somebody had to say it...
There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave....
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

No, it's a genuine phenomenon. The wings aren't real wings, they're just a weird sort of growth that some cats occasionally get. Oddly enough there's a wikipedia article on the subject that manages to be quite accurate. :)

Very interesting!  I wonder if it really is true that the Chinese cat has some sort of bone structure in it's "wings" as going by what the article says, this wouldn't be the case if it was cutaneous asthenia?

Sparrows and dogs beware!
Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old,
Can you hear me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles,
With itching feet and fading smiles,
Can you feel me?
Hey You! Don\'t help them to bury the light.
Don\'t give in without a fight.
