Wow. Was he any good at it? I think I saw something with chimps playing Pac-man a few years ago, but they didn't seem to grasp the point of the game.

Now chimpanzees do have that kind of understanding. Chimpanzees have empathy and sympathy and so as a result they can also inflict pain on purpose I think."

A male chimp is probably the worst possible pet of all great apes. Bonobos are horny and utterly peaceful. (Though I guess for a pet the constant sexual presentation would get a bit awkward) Gorillas are hulking but docile, silverbacks will fight over harems but it's mostly ritualistic and deaths are rare, though they will kill the offspring of competing males. Male orangutans are rapists and make terrible pets as well. Gibbons are speed freaks that only want to fling poop and do george of the jungle shit all day long.

But chimps are just fucked up cannibals that wage war on competing social groups, eat theirs and others' young, and fashion weapons to hunt adorable lesser primates like bushbabies.
And the worst part is that we share 99% of their DNA. Mark my words, the evil in man's heart that has let us dominate for aeons will soon send our Tower of Babel crumbling to the ground.

I can't really tell whether that was an emo or Metal thing to say.

Jane Goodall talked about that when she discovered violent behavior among chimps. It really bothered her.

Well, we stopped living in trees and picking fleas off of each other, perhaps we can stop being violent...

I think I just heard that the lady with no face is suing her friend. I looked online but haven't seen anything yet. If she is, then I hope she loses. I don't feel sorry for either of them. I know, we can talk about if your dog bites someone who comes over to your house and what not. That makes sense, whatever. I just don't really care about either of these two people.

I only feel obligated to feel sorry for people who are dying of cancer and are remorseful for the way they acted.

I think she should be awarded money because from what I understand she called her over to help her calm down the chimp ;\

It's really bad luck, that's what it is.

Greatest flash game ever... CHIMP ATTACK You are a chinp in a cage and must bite and dismember your way to freeedom. Watch out for those cops! Make it to the end and you get to write the next stimulus bill!

That sounds like a Flash game to be invented. It could go along with the Bush-dodging-shoes one.
