Of sodcasting and pissing hounds

Countering the common view of adolescent humans playing loud music in public as ignorant antisocial behaviour, BBC journalist Alex Hudson gives space to the argument that the practice known as sodcasting is at root a means of marking social territory. Much like beasts of the four-legged variety pissing on bushes, lampposts and each other. This is an interesting concept, and surely one worthy of a rigorous multi-species ethological study. It certainly requires more than a pithy quote from a celebrity pop-physiologist with books to sell.
