Planet of the Apes (they beat us again)

Apparently chimps make pretty good video gamers. In a study released recently (I don't know when, and the internet is not forthcoming on pertinent information) a 22 year old female chimpanzee played video games better than a dozen people, including four adults (though beating older people in video games is not hard as all my children do it regularly).

During the games apparently some of the humans tried to get hints from the admin folks, but they refused to give it up as they couldn't give similar help to the chimps.

The chimps of course were listening the whole time . . . .
