Descended from Apes...Weve come a long way...

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Dr. Michael Platt, a neurobiologist at Duke University Medical Centre plays with monkeys..
    When thirsty male rhesus monkeys were given a choice of having their favourite drink or looking at computer images of the dominant ' celebrity' monkey of their troupe, they chose the pictures..

    They had to be bribed with juice to look at photos of ' subordinate' monkeys...

    The' celebrity' monkeys themselves, were just as interested in checking out their fellow ' celebrities' on the tube over quaffing a cold one...

    BUT: the male monkeys were willing to pay [ give up or offer their juice to the testers ] to get to see pictures of female monkeys' hind quarters...

    Seems to me , since we share 98% of the genes as our ' cousins' we'd share similar ' behaviour patterns' as well...
