fuck-benedict-cumberbatch: thewhisperinglady: flowerfistandbestialwail: In a simple experiment, researchers at the University of Chicago sought to find out whether a rat would release a fellow rat from an unpleasantly restrictive cage if it could. The answer was yes. The free rat, occasionally hearing distress calls from its compatriot, learned to open the cage and did so with greater efficiency over time. It would release the other animal even if there wasn’t the payoff of a reunion with it. Astonishingly, if given access to a small hoard of chocolate chips, the free rat would usually save at least one treat for the captive — which is a lot to expect of a rat. The researchers came to the unavoidable conclusion that what they were seeing was empathy — and apparently selfless behavior driven by that mental state. “A New Model of Empathy: The Rat” by David Brown, Washington Post OH MY. this just in: rats are more humane than humans : fuck-benedict-cumberbatch: thewhisperinglady: flowerfistandbestialwail: In a simple experiment, researchers at the University of Chicago sought to find out whether a rat would release a fellow rat from an unpleasantly restrictive cage if it could.

werewolfhusband: stachionalgeographic: micdotcom: Millionaire suggests millennials could afford homes if they stopped buying avocado toast Trying to find the extra cabbage to buy a home and aren’t sure where you’ll get it? One millionaire claims the answer lies in your avocado toast. Australian Tim Gurner recently suggested that if young first-time homebuyers curbed their avocado toast addiction they could save enough money to buy a home, as Time reports. Even if you ate avocado toast every single day, using the median U.S. home value price of $196,500 via Zillow, it would still take about 13 years  to save enough for a mere downpayment. As Mic has pointed out before, shaming millennials about food or drink purchases is rarely helpful.
