reillymj writes: Research claims toads sensed a severe quake in last year five days before it hit. Last spring's L'Aquila earthquake devastated the medieval city of the same name in Italy. Five days earlier, a group of biologists noticed some toads behaving strangely in a pond nearby what would later be the quake's epicenter. Coincidence? These researchers think not.
Today's scientific question is: What in the world is electricity?
And where does it go after it leaves the toaster?
