When our descendants are sifting through the digital archives we've left, providing they're able to use some retro technology to do the sifting, they will think—like we do of the Egyptians—that we worshipped cats.
But while the Egyptians' statues of cats were gracious and elegant, the photos we've uploaded to the internet are goofy, absurd, ridiculous, and anything but graceful.
It may baffle our descendants but, hey, at least it amused us.
Because, look at them! Look how silly they are! The cats in these photos are especially daft because they've been snapped at the perfect time, adding extra goofiness to their activities.
When they stop acting so daft (which will probably be never) then we'll stop uploading and sharing pictures of them (which definitely be never).
So take a moment to gaze upon and wonder at some of the photos below and ponder on one of the popular legacies of our generation. Cats. And the daft and hilarious things they do.
