Coffee and Provocation

Wolves and Dogs Assimilate Experience Differently
Why do wolves stay wild?  When wolves begin to explore at 2 weeks, they are blind and deaf, and must rely primarily on their sense of smell. Dogs, on the other hand, can see and hear when they begin to explore two weeks later, accounting for differences in how the two very-closely related animals treat experiences

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.  If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.  Will it draw your neighbors?  Maybe not, but no crook can chance it.

You Might Be a Republican If...
You've tried to argue that poverty could be abolished if people were just allowed to keep more of their minimum wage... You've ever tried to prove Jesus was a capitalist and opposed to welfare... The only union you support is the Baseball Players, because heck, they're richer than you... You point to Hootie and the Blowfish as evidence of the end of racism in America.
