What would we do without scientists?

September 14th, 2007


There was an article on the BBC news website yesterday about chocolate cravings.

Among the amazing scientific facts presented to us were the following:

“The nice bit is its sweet taste, lovely melt-in-the-mouth texture…”

“On the negative side, it is something we shouldn’t eat too much of… it is relatively high in fat and sugar…”

It’s incredible what you can learn these days.

I predict the following scientific breakthroughs in the coming months:

  • Getting hit by cars is bad for you
  • People like sex
  • Wet dogs smell of wet dog
  • Getting involved in a land war in Asia is not a good idea
  • When a tree falls in a forest and there’s nobody around to hear it, it bloody well does make a noise

    I recall reading of a study where the scientists concluded that pigs who are hit on the head suffer stress.

    That’s a grant application I’d like to have read -and REFUSED!
