You know, being able to hear The Who isn't a particularly impressive feat. They were pretty loud.

I saw the answer to this on a TV programme recently - apparently it's quite a new discovery (not the animal, but its hearing capability). I won;t spoil the fun though.
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

I asked some friends this afternoon and no one was close except for the bats. Nice question. :D

Do bats really “hear” in the way we understand it?

Well, it's not a plant, vegetable or mineral...!

Mind you, plant roots do 'hear' sounds - they sense the vibrations of moving water and grow towards the source of that sound. It used to be thought they sensed the water chemically, but apparently not - it's the acoustic vibrations that are sensed. Acoustic vibrations - that's sounds.


Must go and reassure my first carrot row that I've taken some measures to try and avoid a repeat of last night, when several of their comrades were unearthed by those darn foxes from next door and left to suffer.

Even with tinnitus hissing in my head I'd say I have pretty good hearing. Certainly the best I've ever heard. At the volumes I listen to earphones my hearing is a goddamn wonder.

I heard that dogs' sense of smell isn't all that. The idea that they're able to get their noses - similar to human noses - so close to the ground and to other things makes them good smellers. Go ahead and stick your nose right up into that pile of shit on the lawn and tell us what you learned. Whose shit is it? What did they eat?
