Advertisements I just watched yesterday's Daily show, and he had Bob Woodruff on, who's promoting a special that I guess was on tonight, about a "worst case" scenario for the future of human beings in this world. He used the common myth about boiling a frog: If you put a frog in boiling water, it will hop out right away. If you put it in cool water, and gradually heat up the water, it won't notice until it is too late. Not only did Woodruff use the scenario as an example, he said "It's true!" while using the scenario. Jon just nodded and continued the conversation. Given his regularly confrontational nature for some authors, I was really hoping for him to say, "Um, no.. that's a myth, and it's well established that it's a myth." I had to google it and check out snopes before I posted here, but my memory is correct - this is just an urban legend. Experiments have been done, not to boil frogs, but find out how warm the water can get before they insist on jumping out. Even though they are cold blooded, they have nerves and know when it's too hot for them. I really hope Jon points out that he ignored a silly myth sometime later this week!
