  9. All those S's and spitting, urinating and defecating....sounds a lot more like Welsh to me :)
     
  10. I loved the part about how they were primarily interested in urinating and defacating on it. Aren't we all? I like the fact that the first reaction was to destroy it w/ a rock.

    So, something new that you don't understand comes in. Hit it w/ a rock, then pee and poop on it. Sounds like a bar fight to me!

    "By the start of the next week, the monkey's became contributing members of an internet forum named "Tabcrawler" where, by the end of the day, they became recognized forum leaders for their relatively valid contributions to many discussions. By the end of the first week, they were elected unanimously to moderatorial positions. Visitors to the site commented on how the average I.Q. of forum participants seemed to increase 10 to 20 % after the monkeys' initial participation."
