    Relax you humans -- this is not BARYE saying this -- these were reputable scientists from your own species who conducted objective scientific tests !!!

    Five year old Chimps beat human college students !!!

    For ages I've been mocked (even persecuted) for asserting similar claims in regard to my simian brethren and their native superiority to their bare naked human cousins.

    Finally science has let at least this debate be settled.


    Chimps beat humans in memory test

    By Helen Briggs
    Science reporter, BBC News Monday, 3 December 2007

    Chimpanzees have an extraordinary photographic memory that is far superior to ours, research suggests.

    Young chimps outperformed university students in memory tests devised by Japanese scientists.

    The tasks involved remembering the location of numbers on a screen, and correctly recalling the sequence.

    The findings, published in Current Biology, suggest we may have under-estimated the intelligence of our closest living relatives.

    Until now, it had always been assumed that chimps could not match humans in memory and other mental skills...

    ..."No one can imagine that chimpanzees - young chimpanzees at the age of five - have a better performance in a memory task than humans.

    "Here we show for the first time that young chimpanzees have an extraordinary working memory capability for numerical recollection - better than that of human adults tested in the same apparatus, following the same procedure." ...

    ...During the experiment, each subject was presented with various numerals from one to nine on a touch screen monitor.

    The numbers were then replaced with blank squares and the test subject had to remember which number appeared in which location, then touch the appropriate square. ...

    The university students were slower than all of the three young chimpanzees in their response. ...

    This is evidence, the researchers believe, that young chimps have a photographic memory which allows them to memorise a complex scene or pattern at a glance. ...


    Incredible video documenting all this:

    Well...

    I wasn't going to say anything, but I couldn't resist.

    I can see where monkeys are smarter than humans. I figure they don't have anything to say except for a few monkey noises, and they aren't posting wierd stuff in forums.

    That gives them all kinds of time to think about things in the jungle.

    Bah! The test was biased. It did not account for the cultural and racial differences between chimps and humans.

    This is the problem with all standardized tests. :-)

    Monkey's might be more intelligent, but pigs are our equal (as told by Sir Churchill himself).

    I heard this on the news this morning. One thing that's not being mentioned here, but that was touched on by the news is this: The Chimps tended to miss just as many as the humans, where they beat the humans was in speed.

    I'm sorry to be the bearer of harsh truth Mr. Phrog, but denial is sooo not just a river in the desert.

    My species smoked your species. Watch this video.

    Let this be the end of pathetic human arrogance -- perhaps my brethren (under BARYE's inspired leadership) can put them all into cages before its too late to save the planet...

    Well of course the monkees have better "Photographic" memory, they have to since their language skills are lacking and they must figure it out to get their treat. University students are distracted by worrying about a variety of things the Simians don't have to consider: How will I get that paper done for my next class?... Should I pledge to the fraternity?... How can I wrangle more money outta Mom and Pop?... How can I hook up with that cutie across the classroom?... Well, maybe the chimps have that last one to think about as well.


    And hey! Stop portraying our President as a Chimp! That's Insulting!

    ... that was too easy! Didn't mean anyone to get edited over it!

    Sometimes us Repubs just need to throw the other side a bone now and then.

    What other response would I expect from a defensive troll but more monkey-dust?
