something to think about

nice rats in bad environments acted worse than mean rats in good environments.
nice rats in good environments acted better than mean rats in good environments.
nice rats in bad environments acted better than mean rats in bad environments.
no one factor decides all.
-sandra dodd referring to a nature vs. nurture study on rats

just made me think about people and how the nicest person can still be a rat in the right situation.

hey laura, cool site. the pictures are great too. i suppose it depends on ones definition of a "good rat". it is a well documented fact that good people will do "bad" things in certain situations. i believe it is our "inner goodness" that prevents us from doing bad things all the time. not particularly earth shattering but an interesting notion...
