In July 1968, ethologist John B. Calhoun built a “mouse utopia,” a metal enclosure 9 feet square with unlimited food, water, and nesting material. He introduced four pairs of mice, and within a year they had multiplied to 620. But after that the society began to fall apart — males became aggressive, females began neglecting their young, and the weaker mice were crowded to the center of the pen, where resources were scarce. By January 1973 the whole colony was dead.

I’m just gonna pack my stuff move out of this state
What the actual fuck. I lived in California for 22 years and they have a few dumb laws but this absolutely perplexes me. And pisses me off. I’m a woman and I have carried a legal concealable knife on my since my parents would let me have one. I literally never go anywhere without a knife.
