Because scientists have yet to figure out important things such as the cure for Cancer or AIDS, they've decided to conduct a new study which suggests dogs have a sophisticated understanding of different growls.
These Hungarian researchers recorded 20 adult dogs growling in three situations: First, while engaging in a playful game; second, as another dog was eyeing his bone; and third, when a human male stranger menacingly approached the dog and his owner.
Sound-analysis software easily distinguished the playful growl from the others. However, the researchers could find no acoustical difference between the two more aggressive growls.
When they played the growls to other dogs, however, they discovered that the recorded growl from the bone-stealing scenario was much more effective in deterring a dog from approaching an unattended bone than the other aggressive sound.
I guess if these researchers run out of funding, they're going to come up with some way to regain their capital with the remnants of this project:
Believe it or not, but this guy is actually make some real music. Jorge Perez is an expert in the drums. Or the ass-drum. Here he is with his 'drum set' made up of human body parts. Needless to say, the video is pretty NSFW: Read more
Farts often lead to social embarrassment, and make us feel extremely uncomfortable. However, there were people who recorded these farting incidents in the scroll called He-Gassen (The Fart Battle). The scroll is just about people farting. It also has a few drawings to ridicule westerners towards the end of the Edo period, with images showing the westerners blown away by Japanese farts. Check out some of the drawings here: Read more
