Nights I've camped here

  • Friday, November 12, 2010 - Hazlet State Park, Carlyle IL
    • My plan was to hit the road early this morning and beat feet for the Mississippi. But it didn't work out that way. It seems I got distracted by the iPad display at the Frankfort KY Walmart I stayed at last night and decided to buy one before I left {insert grin here}.

Alex Can Think

Animal researchers are finally beginning to catch up to the little old ladies in tennis shoes who say Fifi the poodle can think. The fights are always between a big group of experts who think animals don't have a lot of feelings or aren't very smart, and a much smaller group of researchers who think there's a lot more going on inside an animal's head than we know. The really nasty fights always seem to go one way: it's always the animal "debunkers" who are on the attack. At least, I don't remember a single big academic fight where someone got fired or lost their funding for doing a study where the animal turned out to be dumber than people thought, and lots of studies like that have been done. Claiming that an animal can't do something isn't considered blasphemous.
