Inconclusive.

In the bloopers reel we see the testers tempting the hamster by picking up the organic carrot and tempting him with it. If you are a hamster, the first thing you do before eating a carrot is smell it.

Also organic was always on the right, conventional was always on the left. This could make a difference, so it should be switched.

Watching the hamster edge towards the food again and again made me want to insert the Jaws theme into this video instead of the current music.

But what the experimenter should have done is this:

Place an organic carrot to the left of the hamster. Wait for him to eat it.

Place a conventional carrot to the right of the hamster. Wait for him to eat it.

Repeat the process for a couple days.

Then place an organic carrot to the left, and a conventional carrot to the right. The hamster will probably remember whether the food on the left or the right tasted better most of the time, and choose that side.

Maybe I should buy a hamster.
Eh, but then I`d have to take care of it... never mind.

Actually, that`s nothing to do with what type of carrot he`s choosing.. it`s just the first direction he went. And he went the same direction the second time, because his mind told his stomach that rewarded him with food.

yeah, as it turns out, men tend to look to the left when they enter a room while women tend to look to the right... this may be true for hamsters

so the hamster liked eating the food on the left more than the food on the right? do they not know how to conduct a thorough scientific study? eliminate as many variables as possible (even if they do seem irrelevant). oh well. one hamster, not many trials. i guess this wasn`t serious to begin with.

Ohh... this reminds me of my hamster, Roachy. He died a couple days ago. First pet I ever buried and not my parents.

And just to be anally retentive about it, they didn`t introduce randomization (switching which side the organic food is on, perhaps) into the experiment.
