You just had to go there.

It was the right thing to do. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

If it was left up to me I'd find another way.

I knew it - kangaroos are sinister.

'And interesting side note is, when it had a choice of which penis to use, the snake usually used its right penis. Even snakes are “right handed.”

'Kangaroos are left-handed, according to a new study.

The finding challenges a prior assumption that the consistent favouring of one hand over the other is a characteristic unique to humans and certain primates.

Wildlife ecologist Janeane Ingram said it was the first time a marsupial population had been shown to have such a strong preference for one hand, with the observed kangaroos showing a left-handed preference 95% of the time.

The joint study was conducted by the University of Tasmania and University of New South Wales, along with researchers Andrey Giljov, Karina Karenina and associate professor Yegor Malashichev from Saint Petersburg State University, who had first observed the trait in red-necked wallabies kept in Russian zoos.'
