I have my doubts about squirrels. They clearly don't understand fractions. I've noticed that if a squirrel is 2/3rds of the way across the street and spots a car heading toward it, it will invariably reverse course and run back the way it came instead of simply completing the remaining 1/3rd of the distance. Or maybe that's a depth-perception problem?
