In a simple experiment, researchers at the University of Chicago sought to find out whether a rat would release a fellow rat from an unpleasantly restrictive cage if it could. The answer was yes.
The free rat, occasionally hearing distress calls from its compatriot, learned to open the cage and did so with greater efficiency over time. It would release the other animal even if there wasn’t the payoff of a reunion with it. Astonishingly, if given access to a small hoard of chocolate chips, the free rat would usually save at least one treat for the captive — which is a lot to expect of a rat.
The researchers came to the unavoidable conclusion that what they were seeing was empathy — and apparently selfless behavior driven by that mental state.

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) - 11.28.11
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics,                   anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played   an          integral        role in the thriving community of costuming    that    exists      today and        cosplay communities such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum.                   In honor of the many fans who’ve displayed excellence   in     the         mastery    of  homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and       sartorial         superheroics,     ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week),                   a weekly collection of some of the most impeccable,        creative,     and        clever costumes that we’ve discovered and        assembled into   our   own        super-showcase of pure  fan-devoted       talent.
Check out this week’s round-up of the Best Cosplay Ever on ComicsAlliance,  featuring War Machine, Catsy, Donna Troy, Daria & Jane (above), and more!
