Very interesting. A group of ~25k individual (unconnected) rat neurons are hooked up to a bed of electrodes, learning how to fly via a virtual flight simulator. An excellent video.

Jata: there is a pile of papers about as tall as i am
Jata: it frightens me
Nora: wait seriously? you have to take a picture
Nora: like a dogbert cartoon
Jata: yeah, it's... bad
Nora: no no
Jata: no, because it is all work i have not done yet
Nora: just think of the epic-ness
its all that matters
in the end
Jata: yeah, epic in the way hector facing achilleus was epic. awesome story, didn't work out so well for hector.
Nora: well achilleus didnt turn out so hot either
all you have to do is find your homework's acchille's heel
Jata: that'll do it.
logically, i have to die first. then it will be dragged in its death from the back of a horse... oh wait, that's ME.
(however, zeus did protect the body from defacement... hmmm)
(zeus? a little help here?)
Nora: he will rape you in animal form * whinnies from on high *
Jata: oh god
i prefer jesus
not that way zomg gah eww im sorry jesus im sorry forgive me?
Nora: * squeals *
imagine if jesus took on animal forms
Jata: and raped people?
Nora: no. but only humble, desert animals
like kangaroo rats
Jata: wow... that is so... i dont even know what to say
Nora: jesus snuffling in the sand
curling up in a little ball
whimpering slightly in the shadow of a cactus
Nora: jesus's hard, armadillo shell
a grub clinging to his tiny armadillo teeth
fear gods wrath...
Jata: armadillos = cute. armadillos that produce wine = profit.
Nora: omg that's our next project!
Jata: field trip! imagine if we find jesus the wine-making armadillo. we'd have a profitable prophet on our hands
