Devin Lewis's curator insight, February 19, 12:42 PM

  If you have ever wondered if cats are going to take over the world, you are not alone. Well, you might be alone in life, but the point is other people have wondered that too. The answer is yes, cats will take over the world. It is scientifically proven that the grumpy cat is an example of this. The grumpy cat makes billions of dollars for his stupid face. Cats have a very king like personality and want to think themselves as ruler or the suppieor ones. The grumpy cat has achieved this by becoming a world wide celebrity. Cats often act dumb and pathetic creatures. But at the same time they purposely prove themselves more intelligent than an average American. The message is that Americans are very well stupid enough to be over powered by a cat. Furthermore, amother famous cat known as the Hitler cat is named after Hitler because of his looks. Adaf Hitler was an awful dictator that had an obsession for power. This foreshadows that this cat will prove an example of cats taking over the world. You have every right to be afraid...infact, be afraid.

Each step features links to a variety of INFOhio databases and products as well as websites with mind mapping tools, note taking strategies, and presentation ideas.
