Scientists Train Rats To Drive Tiny Cars To Collect Food

Revealing rodents may possess more adaptable brains than previously believed, University of Richmond scientists have taught rats to drive a tiny car using steerable metal bars to retrieve Froot Loop cereal pieces. What do you think?

“This better mean fewer rats on public transit.”

“I, too, would go against my fundamental nature to get a handful of Froot Loops.”

“This has major implications for one day getting humans to drive cars.”
