Experiment Links Brains Of TWO Rats!!!

Filed under: Science!Rat

rats

Woah.

A neuroscientist has linked the brains of two rats together, so when one of them pushes a lever - the other one does, too!

The rats were trained to push a lever when a light went on, but after a while, electrodes were placed in the rodent's brains.

Soon they had one rat pushing a level because of the light, and another rat pushing the lever only as a response to the brain stimulation it felt from its partner rat.

Mashed Potato Vending Machines Exist

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScience!

Science has done it, we can totally stop now.

Cancel all remaining experiments and stuff, it's over guys. It was a great run, but someone has reached the finish line — the mashed potato vending machine is a real thing.

Any further attempts at science are futile, because it does gravy, too!

While this seems very popular in places like Singapore, right now they don't really have plans to bring them to the 7-11's in U.S.A… yet!

Hold onto your butts, and check out the video (above) for some weird potato action!
