Monkeys get the correct math answer 76%, college students 94%

This is awesome!

In a rapid fire test of mental addition, monkeys performed almost as well as college students, showing they’re no slouches when it comes to number crunching.

The macaques got their sums right 76 percent of the time, while the students got the correct answer 94 percent of the time in a series of increasingly challenging maths tests.    more….

First off, I don’t know if this is good news for monkeys or bad news for college students. I guess it give new meaning to the phrase "a monkey could do your job." And secondly, I enjoy saying the word "macaque." Macaque, macaque, macaque, macaque. If you don’t shut up I’m gonna smack you upside the macaque. That has a nice ring to it.

Seriously though, I hope this is one more piece of ammunition to help people realize that it’s not OK to abuse, perform cruel tests on, kill, eat, or destroy the homes of our non-homo-sapien relatives because  "they’re just animals." This is not anthrophomorphism, but rather a recognition that humans aren’t the only creatures on earth to feel pain, have emotions, and in fact be intelligent. (George Bush excluded.)

Besides that…monkeys don’t join fraternities/sororities, look down on other "lesser primates", drink too much beer, have unprotected sex, and produce more vapid idiots like themselves. Unlike some of the apes I’ve seen at college.



Finally, a reason to post

I haven’t posted in a month because…well it’s a long story and might make a good post in itself someday. But the short answer is…I just don’t give a shit!

But finally I’ve been inspired and found something that I’d like to share with the world. This is the kind of thing that makes me proud to be an American…ME-WOW!



Gays With Guns or How to Make Your Average Christian Conservative’s Head Explode
* Comments(3)

What’s a good republican/christian conservative to do with this paradox? One one hand, of course he hates fags…but what if the fag likes guns? Damn. Guns or Gays? Gays or Guns? Does Not Compute! Does Not Compute!

I was at the library the other day and I ran across one of our local "alternative weekly magazines" and found myself staring down the barrel of a pistol held by a really manly-looking woman. At first I thought it was one of those body building women that just looks like a man. But then I looked closer and I said "By Jove I think that’s a man." OK I didn’t really say "By Jove" but I was intrigued. I had to know more.

Barbequeing With A Black Panther
* Comments(2)

This strikes me as weird–or maybe sad or surreal–I don’t really know. It’s not that the founding member of the Black Panther Party shouldn’t barbeque, it’s just kind of unexpected that’s all. How you gonna fight the man when you’re hawkin’ a barbeque book? That ain’t no revolution, brutha!
