    Just a planarian. You must not have paid much attention in high school biology.

    Planarium flatworm... no big deal.

    What is cool is that you can train them (go to the light, go away from the light) cut them into pieces, when the pieces regenerate into individual flatworms they all retain the training. THAT is cool.

    The part that emused me wuz the part i read from wiki:
    "In 1962, McConnell repeated the experiment, but instead of cutting the trained flatworms in two he ground them into small pieces and fed them to other flatworms. Incredibly these flatworms learned to associate the bright light with a shock much faster than flatworms who had not been fed trained worms."

    wow,just WOW!

    Also, with absolutely perfect timing, the song "The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth" by Creature Feature started playing while I was watching this...

    Now all I can think is "Kill on and two more shall take it`s place..."

    @Namikaze

    This: can`t = can not
    or
    that: Cant

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    This article is about the linguistic concept of a cant. For the Irish Cant (also known as Shelta/Gammon), see Shelta.
    Cant is the jargon, argot or cryptolect of a group, often implying its use to exclude or mislead people outside the group.

    Please note, I think that public schooling desperately needs more money; the ratio of its funding compared to military spending is too small.

    This isn`t that cool. It`s just worms. Didn`t you take biology in 9th grade? I went to public school in the south and we were taught this. If you are amazed by this, please realize the zoom and time lapse used. None of this is real time/1X.

    I go to a public school, and I`m pretty sure we can afford biology classes since its required to graduate... We didn`t do this in biology though...just dissected fertile pigs and a couple stray cats from the pound.

    So no one here took basic Biology? This is a paramecium.

    And for the record, it`s not "can not," but "cannot." Not "alot," but "a lot."
