Mice are smarter than you think. A lot smarter.
Depending on how you feel about mice and other rodents, this video will either make you swoon or creep you out intensely. Some poor soul has dedicated a significant amount of time training and teaching these mice to do properly smart things. On the one hand, this is kind of cute, on the other, terrifying.
If cartoons taught us anything, it's that all mice want is cheese/anything else they can get they teeth on. Why you would want to make these tiny sneaky critters any smarter is just madness. And yes, these mice are just reacting to trained behaviour, but what's to stop them taking their newly acquired supermouse skills and teaching them to others? Mouse army. You heard it here first. And they won't all be Stuart Littles now. Time to stock up on cats.
