This article says mole rats are "immune to pain." How do they know? That aside, what prompted them to even go there in the first place?

Probably someone somewhere devised a new (chemical?) way to get rid of these rats. Now proving it's humane enough.

I remember the Norwegian (I think) scientists coming to same conclusion re lobsters and boiling water. That one was clearly inspired by a commercial need.

Well, I love lobsters...
