Today on Modern Mechanix we learn that there is “almost conclusive” proof that cows give more milk when listening to the radio and that in 1934 scientists exploring the theory of continental drift felt the need to invent an ancient continent called South Atlantis to fit between South America and Africa. Apparently in 1948 the only method television broadcasters had to record their programs was to point a movie camera at the screen.

Also we learn that dogs are very smart, cats, not so much.
