When Japanese quails are tied up, they engage in risky sexual behavior.
These are the results of a year-long study at the University of Kentucky, which cost 87 874,503 between 2010 and 2016 মাত্র just under 1 1 million when adjusted for inflation.
The late Sen. Tom Coburn first pointed to this wasteful expenditure in his 2011 “Westbook” and Sen. With the federal scientific research subsidy industry.

The study, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse at the National Institutes of Health, found a link between cocaine abuse and risky sexual behavior in Japanese quail.
The study was initially paid 35 356,993 in 2011, but the study continued for several years and a further half a million dollars.
The biggest waste about spending is that researchers are already “working with preliminary evidence of male Japanese quail that increase sexually motivated exposure to cocaine,” according to NIH’s project information page.

The study was based on previous clinical studies based on “a relationship between cocaine use and risky sexual habits in humans.”
Researchers had already made a guess that there was a positive relationship between the type of sexual behavior and the amount of cocaine that the coyotes were exposed to and the frequency of exposure, and yet they felt the need for additional research worth 1 million.
