pressing questions that have arisen as I've been writing (procrastinating) a term paper

How do we know that elephants never forget?
How do we know that elephants are afraid of mice?
Who is doing these fascinating elephant studies?
How did this researcher get his or her findings to take such a prominent place in collective American knowledge?
Why is it so hard to focus on writing a term paper even though it is due tomorrow and I'm still far from the finish line?

  1. A few months ago, when I was writing about the laws of thermodynamics, I kept wondering if the law of entropy existed in the Garden of Eden (it seems logical it didn't). And I curse the Fall every time I forget to charge my phone or iPod, and they die without any warning.
