dhw: Sensational! It took researchers two and a half years to watch 122 chimps crossing the road and to deduce that chimps have enough intelligence to know they must look both ways before crossing....... Meanwhile, I am applying to the National Museum of Natural History in Paris for a grant to cover a two-and-a-half year expedition to seaside resorts all over the world, so that I can study the survival strategies of bed bugs in five star hotels.

It appears you have learned the lesson that any outlandish suggestion for research can wheedle grant money out of somewhere. With too little grant money available, and grant money needed to pursue one's career, fraud is the next step. May your bed bugs survive. Just don't get bitten.
