how does that work though?

speaker 1 was saying they must have some chemical

speaker 2 was saying "no" because of his tube test... no such chemical


i thought his conclusion that squirrels possessed no such chemical was fine, assuming the results would be the same in the rodent

definitely chemical might not present in the test tube
You want me to go all the way up there, to a Yankee school, just so I can come over every weekend and practice "free love" with you?
