I've actually seen dogs (and cats for that matter) do considerably dumber things. Of course, neither can match the stupidity of humans.

Only on youtube.
Following that link ended up with me watching college students (dropouts) firing squirrels off of porches with homemade catapults.

The first thing I notice is that the video is fake. The fan would probably be ripped out of the ceiling, and would NEVER be able to accelerate a 4kG cat 1m from the center like that. The fan can barely accelerate on its own, let alone put that kind of angular momentum into a rotating mass.

Hey, let's not ruin this with math, or facts. Dogs are better than cats.
