Well, if Megakat City is more technologically advanced than our own, then
who's to say they couldn't have developed stuff that quickly? Perhaps
the Industrial Revolution (or its Kat-equivalent) hit Megakat City a lot
sooner (or had more of a delayed action there) than it did the U.S.

I know, I'm grasping at straws here, but... ;-)

In other news, while rewatching the episode "The Giant Bacteria," I
noticed a sign that's clearly marked "Megacat City Salvage Yard" (yes,
it's spelled as I've typed it). Grr -- the city's name is spelled with
a 'k', not a 'c'!

Sorry, I had to get that off my chest. I think my fur's rubbed the right
way, finally.

So you're saying that Manx's speech about "there being a long tradition
of courage and bravery in the Manx family" isn't true? ;-) Better not
let him hear you say that...

Hmm. Maybe someone could consult a spiritual medium who'd conjure
up the ghost of the Blue Manx and find out firsthand?
