This experiment stretches my belief system way past the huh o0) stage.

Seems that if you play different types of music (24/7) for a curing cheese wheel you get different flavors. Hip hop produced the "best" flavor. It beat out Mozart which used to win other experiments like this - specifically playing music and plant growth. I guess the Smithsonian ran out of money to pay for more rigorous research. Or the greenhouse was already full of plants swinging to Mozart.

For extraordinary claims: maybe a Veterinarian who plays cheese maker is not best choice for lead researcher.
