Who would've thunk that thin layer of hair was obscuring such insanely defined ripness. I mean we all know they can tear your proverbial arm out of your proverbial socket, but now it's abundantly clear why.

I fucking hate chimps.

Old_Zircon - 2016-03-31

Less chimps more bonobos is what I say.

OF course, there are some pretty compelling arguments that the documented cases of chimp on chimp warfare are more a result of the researchers' influence than a display of typical chimp behavior.

The idea as I remember it from reading up on it 6 or 7 years ago is that because of the cumbersome nature of film equipment available at the time, Goodall's team couldn't document the Gombe chimps on their own terms, and instead had a system where they put a large pile of bananas in a specific spot (with the cameras focused on it) at the same time every day to lure the chimps in. This created a simple economic system among the apes (bananas weren't part of their local food supply, and while the jungle was for all intents and purposes a source of unlimited resources for them, the banana supply was very limited) which led to hoarding behavior, a breakdown in the usual cooperation within and between communities, and eventually led to the famous Gombe Chimpanzee War. At the time I read about it, primate researchers had never documented similar behavior in chimps, before or after, and there's mounting evidence that chimp communities aren't nearly as insular as they're reputed to be, up to and including inter-community mating and cooperative food gathering and resource sharing between different groups.

It's an interesting theory and definitely rings true in relation to the connections between resource availability and human behavior but I have no idea how well substantiated it is.

What I'm getting at is that part of the reason we observe so many cases of chimps being assholes is exactly that our observation influences their behavior. It probably doesn't help matters that they spend all their time hanging out with other chimps, though.

...and a serpent came into the Garden, and spoke to Adam "Have a bite of this banana. It's delicious!"

Can you recall any of the sources, OZ? The Wikipedia article on the Gombe Chimp War (take that for what it is) alludes to the Goodall interference hypothesis, but then goes on to state that this hypothesis was later discredited.

I have a friend who cites this every time he can as what absolutely must happen to humans for us to survive.

Basically, a baboon troop had its conservative males catch a disease from getting to eat from a garbage dump first and they died, leaving the rest to form a more mellowed out social order that they passed to new males who came in from other places.

Basically, they benefited from allowing nature to kill of their conservatives and gamers.

Nature will out, so I can't argue with her divine wisdom.

Your friend's name wasn't Pepe, was it?

Sudan no1 - 2016-03-31

memedumpster, let's fund the production of an violent, rape filled anime about Ayn Rand where she's a hot 12 year old, and fill it with tons of subliminal messages to kill yourself.

memedumpster - 2016-03-31

Homie, no.
Sudan, wasn't that Inferno Road?

EvilHomer - 2016-03-31

Unfortunately, Sudan, the only people who watch anime are the betas, i.e. the non-aggressive dregs of society, analogous to the chimps who actually survived meme's bioterror attack. You can't have a beta uprising if all the betas are dead. Also, it won't matter, because betas are already bombarded with so much media telling them to kill themselves, stop breeding, lose hope, that one more Malthusian suicide psyop isn't going to make a difference.

It IS nice to know who here is willing to casually endorse genocide, however.

memedumpster - 2016-03-31

Genocide and video games have almost the exact same set of qualities, the most prominent being that filthy casuals do not count.

Evil Homer is like a 45 year old man just discovering how to troll in that he is a 45 year old man who discovered how to troll within the last couple years

Gmork - 2016-03-31

The fact you managed to wedge your retarded anti-gaming rhetoric into this conversation is pretty impressive, meme. You're like a flat-earther posting about his latest NASA hoax discovery on a kitten video.

memedumpster - 2016-03-31

You'd be so much happier if you were just in on the jokes.

That guy - 2016-03-31

Do we have another site-user-as-site-exhibit here?

Old_Zircon - 2016-04-02

SFW fetish tag?

Grandmaster Funk - 2016-04-02

What godawful creatures. It's a wonder humans only came out as shitty as we are.
