Recently, we posted a picture of a skeptical squirrel on our blog, which generated a pretty funny* string of reply-tweets containing other skeptical squirrels from across the country. But did you know that in addition to being judgmental and twitchy, squirrels are also champion liars? They pretend to hide food in order to deceive other squirrels, they hide and steal and cheat. And apparently these are characteristics that the world’s robots need to learn in order to make it in war zones and real life, and squirrels are the perfect teachers. I, for one, welcome our fluffy-tailed overlords. ~AR
