Revision time again

Been going to the library these few days to complete my toxicology assignment and also getting some revision done. When you are confined in a small room trying to study, you tend to think about funny things.

My toxicology report is on Red Wine and Pregnancy, and there are research done in this area using mice and rats as the subjects. While completing my report, I read a journal where rats were force-fed alcohol to show what alcohol does to the fetus. So it got me thinking, how do mice and rats look like drunk? If using white rats, they'll probably get flushed faces (which is going to be so cute) and also stumble around (because that's what drunks do).

In that very small room, the lights are triggered by a motion sensor and would switch off automatically if there is no movement. I came up with this thought on whether the lights would go off if we were very very still. So, to break up the monotony of studying, me and Yan Leng both conducted our own experiment (separately), and tried to be as still as possible. True enough, the lights went off after around 3-4 minutes of inactivity. I was imagining what other people were going to say when they saw somebody sitting in that room not moving at all! haha...

ok... I know, I know.. very 无聊. But what to expect when you are forced to do revision?
