A special treat for cat lovers :)
"And finally tonight I wanna talk about a guy called Pavlov. He was eastern-european, I think Russian. (He) did the famous experiment: Pavlov's dog. You've probably heard about it. Rang bell, and dog eating food, response times, pavlovian kind of response - it's all about ice cream.
And he wrote his experiments:
Day 1: Pavlov's dog, rang bell, dog ate food. (I'm) very excited. ... very excited here in Russia.
Day 2: Been well accepted here in Russia. Changed my name from Ewans to Pavlov. I'm now called Gareth Pavlov - and fitting in well. Day two rang bell, dog ate two lots of food - very excited.
Day 3: right, rang three bells, dog ate all bunch of food and my leg too. Very excited, win Nobel dog prize for cats.
So he did this he won the prize Nobel you know he won whatever, and Pavlov's dog we all know that. But you've never heard his cat results, did you? If he'd published those he'd been just finished.
Pavlov's cat results:
Day 1: rang bell - cat fucked off. Daa.
Day 2: rang bell - cat went and answered door.
Day 3: rang bell - cat said he'd eaten earlier.
Day 4: went to ring bell on day 4 but cat had stolen batteries.
Final day - day 5: went to ring bell with new batteries, but cat put his paw on bell - so it only made a thunk noise. Then cat rang his own bell. I ate food."
