You can't compare dogs with cats! Seriously!

You seriously assume he is joking about the wellness and integrity of cats? Small, pretty, nice cats? They get it? Dogs might get you!

comment How to read “E = (mc)²” so as not to mistake for “E = mc²”
The mathematical notation was invented long before audio tape, mp3 and gramophone, so it might as well have been invented to a) transport a mathematical formula over a long distance without the author traveling along to control the correct submission, and b) to conserve it for the future. By pronunciation (see for example Drews answer) you can express much which isn't easily writable. In contrast to what you say, you can read out loud mathematical formulas easily - a long formula is just longer, not harder, to read, proportional to its length - independent whether you read it loud or silent.

comment Single word to describe someone who is overly sensitive
I'm sorry I can't answer, I guess due to protection and me only having 101 rep. In German, we have a metaphor: 'mimosa' or 'shrinking violet' which is a very sensitive flower, which reacts sensitive on touching. I don't know whether it is used in English too.

comment Is there a word that contains all the vowels?
@Kobi: That's only a first filter, and it is at least 5 vowels - the rest is done with the 5 greps in the pipe.
