||Thanks for the link, Mesh. Interesting reading..it will take awhile to get through the essays, but it's things that fascinate me.
I browsed through one of them at work "What Genetic Changes Made Us Uniquely Human?"
and already learned something new:
"...some rats seem to giggle when tickled."
I had to smile thinking about a group of scientists in white lab coats grouped around a rat trying to get it to giggle...
Scientist 1: Try touching him on his belly.
Scientist 2: Hmmm...nothing. Maybe if you used a feather.
Scientist 3: No no, you idiots! You have to use baby talk when you do it. Say "qoochi qoochi qoo" when you do it...and smile..like you really love the rat..
Scientist 2: Hey! I think he giggled!
Scientist 1: I don't think that was a giggle...It sounded like he said, "Touch me there again and I'll give you the plague."
yeah..I'm really concentrating on my work today
