Scientists announced today that, far from taking advantage of the situation to engage in play, laboratory mice appeared wholly unaffected by the absence of their domestic predator.

I'd like to know more about the sample, Mr 37, please. This may be a spurious result. In the meantime, have a big five.
I think more work needs to be done on this. Applications for research grants, in triplicate..........
Closing date: 12th June. Proposals to be delivered, by hand, by 9.am, to The Cat Project, 22 Mountbank, Orkney. No extensions considered. All applications must be signed by head of department, a vetinary surgeon, a JP, the deputy chair of the local research ethics committee and the Rolling Stones.
Not forgetting the Environmental Impact Statement.
I like it... Many stars.
Can you link this in with a blind control? Maybe using 3 mice.
Also what is the possibly of testing this with Shroedingers theories by placing a cat in a box in with the mice so the cat is both here and away at the same time.
