Scientists Breed A Smarter Rat!

Scientists have engineered a more intelligent rat, with three times the memory length of today’s smartest rats!

Reseachers bred transgenic over-expression of the NR2B gene, which increased communication between the rat’s memory synapses. Activating a crucial brain receptor for just a fraction of a second longer produces a dramatic effect on memory – as proven by the rat’s longer memories of the path through a maze to a chocolate treat!

    It's probably a good time to go ahead and start making smart people. We could use a couple.
