We've all said it, but have you ever imagined the time and patience it would take to actually corral felines into a pen -- if it's even possible at all. We're sure there would be lots of hissing a few claws thrown.

But now we no longer need to wonder, as Bay Area-based MythBusters is taking on the challenge in tomorrow's episode (Saturday, 8 p.m., Discovery).

They'll try to herd eight cats from a large pen into smaller pen. And after watching the preview for the "Savage Purr-suation" episode, we're not sure if they'll ever be able to get all the cats into the pen at the same time. We're thinking this myth is busted.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
