"slime moulds appear to possess a basic intelligence. In 2000, researchers in Japan found that a slime mould called Physarum polycephalum could navigate a maze." - from this week's New Scientist.
'Clever and cunning', they are called. I could lose my way up a straight drainpipe. This makes me think that slime-mold mazes could be hit products, especially if sold at people-size mazes. But then I would think it fun to watch the slime be cunning.

Nah, Anna, selling slime-mould mazes would never work. Just look at the article preview. Can you imagine all the pirated slime-mould mazes that would appear on the market, which were actually full of dog sick rather than your genuine bona fide social amoeba?

Damn their eyes,Alistair! You're right. It hurts for such a gold-mine of an idea be rapiered and foiled by bona'd-sicking-Fidos.
