Many people love science, but my chief problem with it is that it is FULL OF LIES.
First, they tell us climate change is a thing even though it's currently 17 degrees in Chicago today. LOL okay the planet's "getting warmer," too bad I have like, skin nerves or whatever making my face hurt on the outside right now.
Even Donald Trump knows this, so whatever SCIENCE.
And then, as if that weren't bad enough, they come out with this outright SLANDEROUS NONSENSE:
"There is no current case for canine exceptionalism."
ExCUSE you, the mother who raised you, and the horse you both rode in on, Science?! This is an outrage.
This egregious lie-telling comes from a new "report" by "scientists" in a "science journal" called Learning and Behavior, which is pretty rich coming from people who obviously have learned nothing and clearly do not know how to behave. Scientific American, in reporting on the findings, doubled down on the unforgivable slander by saying:
"The study finds that dogs are cognitively quite ordinary when compared to other carnivores, domestic animals and social hunters."
Imagine actually believing this malarkey when there are dogs out here like this one, my dognephew, being exceptional day in and day out.
For God's sake he sleeps like a person with his little T-Rex arms folded like a gentleman!!!
***YOU'RE*** COGNITIVELY QUITE ORDINARY, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.
Anyway, if you think I'm the only one outraged by this #fakenews, you are wrong, because basically the entire internet is having a meltdown.
