Rats Better Than Humans

Yes ladies and gentlemen, rats are better than humans. Not only are they better at sniffing out landmines, they are also better at “diagnosing tuberculosis in HIV patients and catching smugglers bringing drugs or guns across borders.”

Of course, the argument that some make is that humans are smarter than rats because they control the rats. Notice, I did not say smarter but better.

Not only are the rats better at these tasks but they also have better personalities than other animals. “Their sense of smell is as powerful as that of a dog but they are happier performing repetitive tasks without becoming bored.”

God love them.
