You Can't Drink And Drive

But it's ok to drink and fly. Friday Fun Fact!

We already know that ants always fall to the right when they are drunk. The logical next step is to fund further research into "when animals behave like frat boys." I can almost see the giggling researchers sitting around the table, having finally found a sponsor who will apparently fund ANYthing. "Oh, oh, how about bats? Let's see if we can get them drunk enough to crash into things when they fly."

Oh yes, it's a real study.

And lo and behold, at least in the Western hemisphere, drunk bats are still able to fly just fine, thank you, as well as operate heavy machinery and avoid drunk dialing ex-cavemates.

If only we could all be so evolved.  I need to find out who is funding all this critical research...

LOL @ lifeshighway. Is there a Texts From Last Night bat version blog?
Geez, when my dad worked in academia, he had a hell of a time getting grants funded, and he is a cancer research scientist. Isn't that a little more important than studying the effects of alcohol on bats?

OH, bat fingers! THAT'S what those tiny keys on cell phones must be for!

I hear that, frizz -- the endless funding battle is being fought everywhere. Apparently we are just not picking the right topics!

Sorry about Lifeshighway game. I removed all reference to Lifeshighway game on my post about Yard art. I will continue with a Yard Art meme and make no referece to your and anybody else's posts. I was stealing nothing - that's why I gave credit to Lifeshighway and even sent people over to that blog. Yard Art belongs to everybody...
