    Shock: kids smarter than chimps

    http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,22377952-13762,00.html

    IN another case of researchers reporting the bleeding obvious, European scientists have found that children are smarter than chimpanzees.

    A unique study comparing the abilities of human toddlers to chimpanzees and orang-utans found that two-year-old children have social learning skills superior to the apes, the researchers said.

    In one social learning test, a researcher showed the children and apes how to pop open a plastic tube to get food or a toy contained inside. The children observed and imitated the solution.

    Chimpanzees and orang-utans, however, tried to smash open the tube or yank out the contents with their teeth.
    Another perfectly good waste of taxpayer money!

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    That depend on who the kids are, I've been around some kids where it would have been more fun to hang out with a chimp.

    Bah!
    My evil organization has known about this "shocking truth" for years!
    We used to employ monkeys for complex manual jobs such as factory labor or dangerous repairs.
    Now we employ two-year-old children.
    I must say that the toddlers do a much better job, and fling 57% less crap at their supervisors than chimps.
    Hooray for child labor!
