I remember reading somewhere about how some diseases attack brain tissue, and that some animals have adapted over the years to combat such things better then others.......perhaps there's some sort of anti-body that is in the brain fluid.

Plus, genetically speaking, scientists say that we're closest to monkeys and apes......perhaps it's merely the species which has the best compatibility to humans?

My idea of, "Ooh, fun!" is actually, "Ahhh, no!" for a lot of people.

What I do in my spare time.

And letting gremlin roommates cook is not a good idea- they tend to add motor oil to everything.

This is what the Lemurs in the book look like... I found a picture of the Silky Sifaka Lemur on the interwebs.

When I hear "lemur," all I can think of is the ring-tailed lemur from Zoboomafu.... XD

I think he chose lemur because it's like an on-going joke with everyone calling it a monkey and Artemis correcting them and then at the end it actually IS a monkey! I don't know, he could have done it with any animal. But Eoin Colfer is a strange man.

Edit- How do you extract brain fluid from an animal without killing it? Not that I'm gonna like, try it. Just curious.

Well... some people drill holes in their heads with regular household drills and live. :vomit: Of course, theyre never the same again :tinfoilhat: . I saw a TV show about people like that. They say that it makes them feel realy weird and nice when the blood starts seeping down their brain. :vomit: So, I'm guessing that if you stuck a needle into your head and just sucked out some fluid, it would be all right. Though I don't know whether it's the same for lemurs.

TTP I don't think Opal cared about it living, so she wouldn't know, Meo. XD

I think if you did it carefully, it would work..I'll just go with what Colfer had Artemis do, because I have no idea.

Most likely one of eion's kids was reading or watching a horror story while he had writer's cramp. Then he got this odd idea.
