Football playing Bee's. !!!!

Ever read a scientific study and thought WTF ??????

It's been in the news recently that British scientists have taught a group of Honey Bee's how to push a ball into a goal for a sweet reward. But that's not all, the scientists also discovered that other Bee's which watched the Bee's scoring a "goal" and getting a reward, quickly picked up the trick themselves.

I believe the definition of intelligence needs some work.

Actually the bees are just pawns and kind of lame. What you really want and need is an octopus - they ain't just players, they're bookies too!

Reminds me of the famous Pavlov Dog real experiment in the late 19th or early 20th century. Schroder used a cat in his mind experiment which makes no logical sense to me because he could have used a honeybee or elephant.

edit: did you read what just happened in France, person or persons unknown broke into a zoo and killed a white rhino and sawed off the horn with a chain saw and also killed an elephant in the same zoo and sawed off the tusks, they got away scot free but hope they get caught and prosecuted to the furthest extent of the law
