This thread has nothing to do with the title - but that title guarantees readers!

i was astounded to read this morning that scientists are amazed that chimps have better memories than students!

We could have told them that!!!!

did they seriously think that students would be able to remember to turn up to the tests??

were the tests fair? - did they get the chimps drunk for 7 nights in a row feed them on baked beans for six months and give them beatles posters and stupid hair?

were the students fed healthy fruit and veg and excercised regularly??

i know that on the whole XRV.org is not in favour of expensive research being done on pointless topics but lets be fair this on was brilliant!

can you imagine how it came about - some ogri type who works as a scientist was on his commute on his honda trail bike (how's that for brand placement!) when some halfwit student steps out in front of him!

He gets to work having muttered about it all the way and thinks - i bet there are cleverer chimps than students

Genius pure genius:D:D:D:D:D

Where did you read this? I need a copy as I tend to agree but would love a copy of the report, would be quite fitting as I work in the Psychology Dept. of a university :rolleyes::rolleyes:
