Yes, we agree. everyone should have a duck? Why, you ask? Well, take a look at these pictures and videos, and you'll understand perfectly why ducks are a necessary animal in every household. 

No words are necessary to understand. Ducks are just... cute and tiny and adorable and truly surprisingly friendly. And apparently, ducks like dogs, which is always good to know. So, if you have a friend who is contemplating getting a duck, here is how to convince them.

Also, convince your friend to get a cat at same time. Just because.

Troublemaker Cats Chilling In The Most Random Places

If you ever get a cat, be prepared for some shenanigans. You must be fully aware, before you make the decision to get one, that all of your precious items will be at risk and will have to be moved to secure locations, and that if your cat ever sits on your eggs, it's totally normal behavior. 

Thank you, @cats_places, for providing all the picture proof we'll ever need of such perfectly normal behavior, warning all future cat owners of potential disasters and making cat owners laugh with fondness at their silly little furballs sitting exactly where they shouldn't. We love our little hooligans no matter how many things will break, and if you do ever get a cat, you will too.

Twitter Shows Exactly Why Everyone Needs Cats

There are a million and one reasons to have a cat. They're hilarious, they're soft, they're adorable, they're very pet-able, and they're total badasses who we love to no end. Some people still don't get it though. Somehow, it's lost on them how amazing cats are.

The twitter account "Why you should have a cat" i.e. @ShouldHaveCat has decided to take it upon themselves to become the best resource for explaining why everyone should have a cat. Or, in their words: "The perfect account to show to your parents when you want a cat". 

And they do it all without saying a thing. All you need to convince people that they should have cats are cat pictures - out of context and absolutely purrfect

Henry Conklin loves his dog and wants to share the canine's voice with the world. Modern social media and Conklin's technological know-how make that possible.

The mathematics/computer science undergraduate student at the University of Virginia regularly engages in competitive programming and decided to use these skills to make a Twitter account that his dog Oliver could 'control'.

@OliverBarkBark tweets every time Oliver barks. So far he's had some very insightful things to say:



Conklin describes the process by which he achieved this feat on his website:

By connecting a Rasberry Pi, a wifi dongle, and a microphone, I was able to make a system that automatically detected, filtered, and published each and every one of Oliver's deafening vocalizations.

The full process from bark to tweet takes three steps. First is recording. I have the raspberry pi listening continuously and triggering a recording once it hears a sound over a preset volume. Oliver barking is by far the loudest thing within several miles, so the volume threshold should be sufficient. However, the recordings are still triggered occasionally by unwanted junk. To guard against this, I needed to perform a second step to filter the barks from the junk.

I took a machine learning approach to filter out the barks. I built a model using the pyAudioAnalysis library and around a day's worth of barks (about 20). I then set up a bash script to run every ten minutes, classify each recorded sound, and forward the barks on to the next step.

Finally, the barks are forwarded to the twitter api (using python-twitter) and posted under the handle @OliverBarkBark (be sure to follow!). Currently the tweets are random strings composed of "bark," "ruff," and "woof." I plan to replace that with a bark-to-text translator that will likely produce similar results but be more accurate to Oliver's actual voice.



Being the cool guy that he seems, Conklin also made all the code it took to accomplish this publicly available.

He said the next step is puppy podcasting.
