My friend's new boyfriend has questioned him about what makes Mexican
jumping beans jump. I was under the impression that they contained the
living larvae of some flying insect. But why do they have such a long
shelflife. What's the deal? New boyfriend of my friend thinks that this
is exploitive ofan animal creature. I just don't know what to think.
