Researchers investigated how quickly 32 different kinds of animals urinate - and big or small, it's remarkably the same.

Even though an elephant's bladder is 3,600 times larger than a cat's - just under five gallons vs. about one teaspoon - both animals relieve themselves in about 20 seconds.

I have always wondered if there is a grant writer who could get a project funded that involves calculating the exact amount of time it takes for several species of animals to urinate.

Whoever this grant writer is, surely s/he is a god among men. Because, personally, I can't see any better way to use that money. At all. Ever. Animals peeing.....
