Something about stress in animals, including, supposedly, humans. Anyway, as they were interviewing some human, a sign on one of the cages in the background read, <strong>"RAT HAS NO CONTROL."</strong> I have almost never stopped laughing about the beautiful truth of those four words of homemade bumper sticker. This is the answer to the majority of the world's questions.&nbsp;</p><p>To be fair, there must have been another cage back there that had a sign reading, "RAT HAS CONTROL." This was the point of the experiment, to show that rats with some control (and predictability of circumstances, as I recall) were much more able to handle rat stress induced upon them by humans.&nbsp;Anyway, great show, and one I've remembered for a long time, eh?&nbsp;</p><p>This site mentions the experiment (check out the base url!):</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Princeton University </span> <span class="locality">Princeton </span>, <span class="region">New Jersey</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="40.348718">40° 20' 55.3848" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-74.659047">74° 39' 32.5692" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=40.348718+-74.659047+%28%2C+Princeton+%2C+NJ%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Princeton+%2C+NJ&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
