Rats destroy the myth of human "specialness" part 2

Now I’ve cited in the past, scientific research indicating that rats can exhibit ethical behaviour, as a retort to the usual complacent mouthing of the magic man fetishists on the subject of morality.

But now, rats have upped the ante.

They’ve discovered that it’s fun to drive cars.

I am NOT kidding. Here you go:


If I ever stepped into a room and had a bunch of rats driving cars toward me, I’d probably have a nervous breakdown.

If you see below, ourangutangs are quite capable of learning how to competently drive golf carts. By some criteria, they even seem to drive better than a lot of people that I know . . . and I’ve responded to golf cart accidents when I was a medic in South Florida, so I know what I’m talking about.
