Mind Boggling

This story is from the AP via Pravda.
The Japanese conducted a research to find out that young chimps have a better short-term memory than human adults.

That challenges the belief of many people, including many scientists, that "humans are superior to chimpanzees in all cognitive functions," said researcher Tetsuro Matsuzawa of Kyoto University.

"No one can imagine that chimpanzees young chimpanzees at the age of 5 have a better performance in a memory task than humans," he said in a statement.

DCap: They were talking about young chimps, not formerly cocaine addicted, drunk, lazy assed older chimps. Hope that helps.
