Sheep Intelligence Tests…why???

According to some CSIRO scientists, sheep are not as dumb as a lot of people think.

The scientists sent the sheep through a maze and found that after going through the maze a few times, they had reduced their maze solving time from 90 seconds to 30 seconds.

Personally, I have never seen sheep as stupid. Flocking may be instinctive, but I never as it as a sign of unintelligence.

What I would like to know though, is why did the CSIRO undertake this study, after reading the entire ABC News article I still can’t see why they did it. Does it really prove anything of any value? I don’t think so, so what purpose does it serve? Anybody care to enlighten me?

Glucksen Glucksen Glucksen

I’ve just had a look at my collection of spam emails which I don’t bother deleting as gmail automatically deletes them after 30 days. Anyway, I just noticed some interesting names that the spammers have used lately.

  • Gwrtheyrn Zaragoza
  • Gralnick
  • Grossman
  • Erik Fuentez
  • Goldenson
  • Glucksman
  • Fishbein
  • Himmelfarb

I must say though, it was interesting to see “Adler” sending me an email with subject “Baldness Won’t Work”. Interesting…I would have suggested that some of the baldness cures won’t work, but I’ve been proven wrong by these masters of the English language.

I have to wonder if “Glucksman” is perhaps a poor attempt at “Glucksen”, a german word for “Chuckle” which is what most of the spam I receive is good for.
