Well, let's see... Yep, let's stick with warm hugs!
Contrary to popular belief, goldfish do not have a tiny attention span. Reserach shows the shortest span belongs to the fruit fly.
Humans can have attention spans shorter than a goldfish's, but that's acutally our normal, and the fact that we're in a very different environment than a goldfish.
Macaques, which are often used in brain studies b/c of supposed similarity to human brians, turn out to .... not light up like ours during active attention-paying. Oops. Turns out human brains have more comminication between the two hemispheres during some tasks. Macaques, not so much. Since our social cues are very different, however, it is possible that this is because the studies involved *sight*. If we went with smell, a macaque would probably kick our butts.
A dog can be trained to have an attention span of several minutes, but please don't expect it until well-trained. You or the dog;-P

I've had it. Honestly. my Brain gives up by 10 AM. C'mon, brain! Get outta neutral!***The first study linking carbon dioxide to warming was done in the 1930s. the hypothesis was first proposed in 1896.OK, let's expalin this in high school terms: the carbon cycle. If you overwhelm it, life gets very difficult. Four of the five largest extinctions known to paleontologists are linked to climate...
Bursitis in left shoulder has flared, or whatever it is bursae do, and guess what I get to do? Move a ton of heavy stuff!......... Imagine that was an expletive. From anylanguage you want. I cna cuss in several.Today, a dose of silliness from the animal world!A giraffe can clean its own ear with its tongue. Weird fact: The Canary Islands aren't named for the bird. Nope.
