Is it true that if you throw a frog in boiling water it will jump out but if you heat it slowly it won't?

Tim Woolmer  asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi Chris,
For many years I heard management gurus talking about the "boiling frog" syndrome.
Recently I heard a real guru say the same thing.

"If you throw a frog into a pot of hot water it will immediately jump out.
"If you put it in cold water and slowly heat it, it will boil to death"

Please don't harm any frogs disproving it!

Good luck
Tim


What do you think?
