Put 8 monkeys in a cage with a banana suspended above which can only be reached by a small stepladder which is provided. When a monkey tries to climb the ladder to get the banana spray it with water. Eventually the monkeys learn and whenever one tries to get the fruit the others attack it before it gets to the ladder. Now, replace one of the monkeys. The new monkey naturally tries to get the fruit but is attacked and learns not to go near the ladder, it also learns to attack any other monkey which tries it. Continue replacing the monkeys until NONE of the original monkeys remain. If a monkey tries to go for the banana the other monkeys attack it.........and have no idea why. ...thoughts? anybody else in the mood for a banana?
