Scheming Squirrels and Ancient Plants: Coincidence or Part Of The Master Plan?

Scientists in Russia have grown plants from fruit stored away in permafrost by squirrels over 30,000 years ago, according to the BBC.

My friend Dave Weingart sent the link with the comment, “Maybe not all squirrels are evil.”

My answer: HA! I’m sure those squirrels from ancient times were storing away those seeds as part of their plot to take over the world. Do the scientists REALLY know the longterm ramifications of nurturing those miniature potential time bombs into maturity?

This only goes to show you how deviously patient these squirrels can be.
