G u a r a n t e e d t o R o l l Y o u r E y e s!
A prominent Polish scientist conducted very important experiment. He trained a flea
to jump upon giving her a verbal command (“Jump!”). In a first stage of experiment
he removed flea’s leg, told her to jump, and the flea jumped. So he wrote in his scientific
notebook: “Upon removing one leg all flea organs function properly.” So, he removed
the second leg, asked the flea to jump, she obeyed, so he wrote again: “Upon removing
the second leg all flea organs function properly.” Thereafter he removed all the legs but
one, the flea jumped when ordered, so he wrote again: “Upon removing the next leg all
flea organs function properly.” Then he removed the last leg. Told flea to jump, and
nothing happened. He did not want to take a chance, so he repeated the experiment
several times, and the leg less flea never jumped. So he wrote the conclusion: “Upon
removing the last leg the flea loses sense of hearing” 😱
