A prominent Polish scientist
conducted very important experiment. He trained a flea to jump upon giving her a
verbal command ("Jump!").|
In a first stage of experiment he removed flea's leg, told her to jump, and the
flea jumped. So he wrote in his scientific notebook: "Upon removing one leg all
flea organs function properly."
So, he removed the second leg, asked the flea to jump, she obeyed, so he wrote
again: "Upon removing the second leg all flea organs function properly."
Thereafter he removed all the legs but one, the flea jumped when ordered, so he
wrote again: "Upon removing the next leg all flea organs function properly."
Then he removed the last leg. Told flea to jump, and nothing happened. He did
not want to take a chance, so he repeated the experiment several times, and the
leg less flea never jumped. So he wrote the conclusion: "Upon removing the last
leg the flea loses sense of hearing"
