  •  Snopes says that's a myth (5+ / 0-)

    Here: Snopes investigation of boiled frog.

    Sorry, Snopes doesn't allow cut and paste, but they talked to a frog expert who said if you put a frog in cold water and apply heat, the frog will try to escape.

    Plus, several years ago, Glenn Beck threw a frog into a pot of boiling water and either the frog was killed instantly or it was a rubber (fake) frog. People were outraged and disgusted. I think Beck was trying to make the point that Obama was gradually bringing socialism to America or something instead of throwing us into boiling water. Whatever. He was an idiot.
