The most ominous bit (and there is real competition here!) is the name of the vendor.

Sorry, I spoke too fast. I subsequently saw a picture of the CEO/Founder.

Is it unhealthy for young katts to watch a lot of telly? :-) (some Christmas comedy set in London- made me miss my previous home for a bit; she fell asleep after 15 minutes)

Yes, unless there is a lot of violence.

Cats are killing machines; if they are exposed to peaceful narratives, it leads to depression and ennui. A "Christmas comedy set in London" is probably a terrible influence on a young cat.

What is the turning point when the number of views, followers, clicks, and other such metrics become irrelevant?
(in the very context of my question, I'm assuming it is relevant before that turning point)

Number of twitter followers
> 10,000: You can get paid as a social influencer.
> 1 million: You are a true celebrity.
> 10 million: You are a god and can change your name to just your first name.

Actually, I don't use Twitter and just made this up!

Why would one even waste time plane spotting while on holidays on Sint-Maarten?

I wouldn’t, and I honeymooned there many years ago. With my current wife!
