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.

Katie’s primary concern remains, as it has always been, her daughter’s best interest,” Wolfe said in a statement.

Don Grady, who played one of television’s most beloved big brothers as Robbie Douglas on the long-running 1960s sitcom “My Three Sons,” died Wednesday. He was 68. Grady had been suffering from cancer and receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks, California. Don Grady show business career started with a brief stint singing and dancing on “The Mickey Mouse Club” starting at age 13. Then he became one of Fred MacMurray’s “My Three Sons” on the series that ran on ABC and later CBS from 1960 to 1972, and was among the longest running family sitcoms of all time with 380 episodes. A musical prodigy at a very young age, Grady appeared with a band, the Greefs, in the series, and in real life played drums for The Yellow Balloon, who had a minor hit with a self-titled song in 1967. After his work in front of the camera wound down in the 70’s, Grady worked primarily as a musician and composer, writing the theme for “The Phil Donahue Show” and music for the Blake Edwards film “Switch” and the popular Las Vegas show “EFX,” a showcase for “Phantom of the Opera” star Michael Crawford. The cast of My Three Sons got together one last time in 2009 on the CBS Early Show: Barry Livingston, Stan Livingston, Tina Cole and Don Grady reuniting!
