I’m sure by now you’ve seen the whole thing about “if you draw a square on the floor, cats will magically appear” and all that crap (or a circle, or a hexagon… Any sort of sigil that’s got borders and can fit a cat, I guess). It’s all over Reddit, Tumblr, Twitter, Buzzfeed, and even the last-in-the-internet-foodchain places like People Magazine are covering it (…As of literally five hours ago on Thursday, April 13, 2017, despite this being a thing for over two years. Really, corporate old-school media people, valiant effort on being ‘hip’ and ‘with it’. I can just imagine a correspondent from People’s “Internet Department” going to SXSW with a MUSIC BAND t-shirt and saying “How do you do, fellow kids?”).

And AMRAP, also not giving even half a shit about the square:
This theory is bullshit.
Well, I’ll be:
Damn. I hate being wrong.
People Magazine Really Needs To Stop Trying
