Cool study, but wait until we unleash our idiot savants on the chimps -- that'll put them in their place!

"Are you smarter than a shimpanzee ?"

Bad methodology. The college students weren't getting treats

Also needs "shimpanzee" tag

KnowFuture
Done.

Okay. They can memorize where numbers are. Intelligence has nothing to do with location memory. Not to say they aren't clever, but we have general relativity, punks.
Hodge
concur'd!

On the one hand, yes; on the other hand, there has been some work correlating pretty strongly what we would intuitively call "intelligence," by at least some metrics, to the number of things we can keep in working memory at the time ("things" here having a more precise, measurable definition). So, yes, we seem to be better at abstract, conscious, symbolic processing; but, on the other hand, it's not like the human brain is imbued with something divine and qualitatively different from a chimpanzee brain, and, at the end of the day, that shit's pretty wack.

Also, general relativity is a myth. You must mean "Jesus." We know Jesus. Which means we are truly intelligent.

Oh yeah, well let's see that smart-ass chimp pound a forty as fast I can!
petep
you would not, could not win that contest.

FISTFULLofSOUL
agreed..remember that redneck 'rangotan Clyde?

EvilHomer
God DAMN it. Uhhh, well, I bet he can't... fuck you, chimp!

At least we've still got Chuck Heston on our side.
