Like a fable, the boiled frog anecdote serves its purpose whether or not its based upon something that is literally true. But it is literally true? Not according to Dr. Victor Hutchison, a Research Professor Emeritus from the University of Oklahomas Department of Zoology, whose research interests include the physiological ecology of thermal relations of amphibians and reptiles to include determinations of the factors which influence lethal temperatures, critical thermal maxima and minima, thermal selection, and thermoregulatory behavior:

The legend is entirely incorrect! The critical thermal maxima of many species of frogs have been determined by several investigators. In this procedure, the water in which a frog is submerged is heated gradually at about 2 degrees Fahrenheit per minute. As the temperature of the water is gradually increased, the frog will eventually become more and more active in attempts to escape the heated water. If the container size and opening allow the frog to jump out, it will do so.

Other people don't think exactly like me, share my opinions and are resisting when I try to force my ideas on them. Our society is damned.

I'm sure putting the lid on the pot helps.
