I Can't Place the Name, but the Butt Seems Familiar
« on: October 03, 2008, 05:20:12 AM »
Chimpanzees may not forget a familiar face -- or a behind, a new study says.

In a recent experiment, captive primates were able to identify photos of their acquaintances' rears and match them with the right faces.


Interested?  I suspected as much!  Read more here:

Butts, Faces Help Chimps Identify Friends

I rather question this line in the article, however:

No convincing evidence exists that other primates, including humans, could duplicate the feat.

Honestly?  This seems doubtful.

Maybe I should be allowed to run some experiments.

Yeah, I should really be allowed to run some experiments.  Does anybody know where I can get a grant to study the posteriors of sexy coeds?

Anybody?

Is that a "no"?

I guess that that's a "no," then...

Thank you very much indeed, Storiwyr!  That's kind of you to say.  I'm glad that you've found it worthwhile! :)

And if I ever do get that grant, The Overlord, I'll be sure to let you know! ;)
