Me: this is more of a cat than a question
Lecturer: ??
Me: *gently lobs a cat onto the stage*

@MxCraven gotta be gentle with the cat
it's fragile
a hurl would be too much; a throw too rough; but a lob is just right

@Sargoth True. A lob gives a very nice parabolic curve, perfect for a cat to get oriented to the ground, and prepare the suspension for impact.

@Sargoth I throw our dog onto the sofa regularly.

That is more of a throw than a lob, admittedly

@Sargoth something very like this happened in my school once

Best lecture ever
