Mankind has discovered many things by accident. Penicillin, Microwave Ovens and Coca Cola for starters and so it goes with the story of Ivan Pavlov, a Russian scientist in the late 19th century. Pavlov was studying the salivation in dogs in response to being fed.
The intention was to monitor the salivation when he noticed that dogs would begin their salivation whenever he entered the room, whether he was bringing them food or not. It’s said that initially he thought this was something of a nuisance.
What Pavlov came to understand was that there were some things that a dog does not need to learn. This was ‘hard wired’ into the dog.

Assange began the Tweet storm over the weekend, with a Tweet that said “Hello snowflakes,” and then went on to note that he will focus on “some censorship double standards,” such as the “threats to kill” he has received on Twitter.
