    First off, our cranky old detective checks the dining room chairs:

    But no luck there. He gets a hot tip from a little(er) bird that they might have been spotted in the living room near the stacks of DVDs:

    You can follow the continuing adventures of the world’s smartest parrot Alex and his “mom” Dr. Irene Pepperberg at AlexFoundation.org. Also, Alex recently had an encounter with computer science icon Richard Stallman – you can read his account here.

    Here at IoT we do more limited experiments on parrots – our latest Nobel Prize-rejected study indicates that cockatiels love Doritos.

  • Good grief

    Someone angry with a uppity ACLU-type pagan woman broke into her house while she was out at dinner, cut the heart out of her baby African gray, and then decapitated it. I am almost too ill to type this story.
