i saw this on TV...fascinating stuff.
Not surprising. Afterall with the 20th century 'democratization' of higher education we have seen what a million college students with a million typewriters can do, and they did not produce shakespeare, they produced women's studies.
wtf this has nothing to do with intelligence at all, its just short term memory capacity, it's not something you can "learn"....
I bet that whales outperform college students at living underwater, too...
^ see sunzoo I knew this would be said which is why INTELLIGENCE was never mentioned by me or anyone.
But I did say: Young m.onkeys outperform college students.
Nice try, But I too read it.
And it's still funny considering Adults can't do it nor do it as good.
I'm looking forward to seeing the young monkies go against young children next.
never said it was. i'm just saying it's not very interesting because that isnt surprising at all.
It was to me and some others who thought it was pretty fascinating considering their monkey's and we're evolved humans.
Each to their own.
they're= they are
their= something "they" own
there=the opposite of "here"
monkeys= multiple animals
monkey's=a monkey owns something, i.e. the monkey's hat
Grammar Nazi alert.
I'm well aware of that, but thanks for correcting my laziness. I was also pretty tipsy late last night when I wrote it. And obviously when it came to that reply I didn't put any thoughtful effort into my grammar. And to be honest, I wasn't really interested in your conversation ethier.
Don't take it personally, He just wanted me to know I made some boo-boos.
Mistakes happen, no big deal, live and let live. After all karma is a bitch.
Short-term recall is a component of intelligence.
those two mistakes just bother me because they're (not "their" or "there") everywhere.
i'm not really concerned about having bad karma from correcting your grammar, though...maybe i'll get good karma if someone who sees this actually remembers it.
I'm sorry you feel the glass is half-full.
Separate names with a comma.
