on the theme of dogs..

What will they come up with next?

I just saw this article that basically states that Yeah, they did a study!! I mean, what will they find next? That cats meow to communicate? And that different barks and meows convey different things?? Get outta here!! No way!!
That is just freakin' amazing!!

I think they might be on par with some others...smoking cigarettes is addictive!!  Playing drinking games leads to high blood alcohol level!!  Parents of newborns don't get very much sleep! I mean, really!! Where do they come up with this?  Here are few more suggestions for studies...presented as questions of they can find-- the Answers! 

Does eating reduce hunger (or drinking water reduce thirst???)
Will riding a bicycle get you somewhere faster than walking? What about driving a car?
Do people that work inside near windows ever look outside?
Does eating a big meal make people sleepy?
Does rain fall from the sky?

This list could go on... got any suggestions for more ridiculous stories?

I'd love to know how they discovered this - I like to imagine it would've been eavesdropping on dogs - like in a Gary Larson cartoon.

Thanks for your research quest. I've always wondered about the glue and food thing. Will you report back with your findings?? ;)

Geez - didn't these scientists ever watch 101 Dalmations? Those dogs did the "bark alarm" - which told the news of the kidnapped puppies all the way to the country.

I'd like to think my tax dollars were going to something more important - like figuring out why the sky is blue.

Eating can't possibly reduce hunger. I eat constantly and I get hungry over and over again. Just kidding.

Wait... I think I was in on the whole "sniffing glue can make you high" study. No... maybe I was just dreaming. Oh I can't remember... I don't seem to have as many brain cells as I used to!! tee hee

Hey... thanks for checking in on me! I am alive and well.

Claudia said...

Puss, I imagine the lot of them pushing as hard as they can on the PULL door.

Claudia...LOL...I was hoping you'd help me create a bigger list.

Karmyn, well obviously they did not!! they could have saved some time, I think. you're saying the effect is only temporary? (as I scribble on my clipboard) I might have to send this one in to the scientists.

Jodi, I tried, but that Elmers wouldn't cooperate! :)
