The one thing that’s always separated us from most all the other living things on earth is our ability to laugh. Oh sure, Chimpanzees and Laughing Hyenas excepted, try to think of another species that laughs out of pure laughter, not mimicking or imitating us. But now scientists say a rat will laugh when tickled–and they’re not joking. Dr. Jaak Panksepp, professor of veterinary and comparative anatomy at Washington State University in Pullman. This video shows him playing with rats, tickling rats’ bellies resulting in the animals appearing to laugh! Rat “laughter” consists of high-frequency chirps that are beyond the range of human hearing. But for the video, Dr. Panksepp used special sound equipment to hear the rats’ responses, according to The New York Times. And in the video, which was recorded in 1998, the rats seem to chase Dr. Panksepp’s hand for more when he stops tickling them.

Remember Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah’s couch during her TV show declaring his love for Katie Holmes? Flash forward just over 5 years later and the actor and actress are ending their marriage, Cruise’s attorney said Friday. Holmes filed for divorce Thursday, according to Cruise’s lawyer Bert Fields and added “Tom is very sad about it and is concentrating on the kids,” Cruise’s publicist, Amanda Lundberg, confirmed the pending divorce — which was first reported by People Magazine, and urged people to respect “their privacy to work this out.” Jonathan Wolfe, an attorney for Holmes, called the issue “a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie’s primary concern remains, as it has always been, her daughter’s best interest,” Wolfe said in a statement.
