Chimps outperform humans at memory task

See!

Monkey Brain

Add to My ProfileMore Videos WOW. Look at that guy! I wouldn't want to mess with him. He'd kick my ass Before I randomly found this video I read an article about Chimps. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn12993-chimps-outperform-humans-at-memory-task.html It says that chimps were scoring higher in memory tests than humans! I'm impressed, that they can actually tell the difference between the different numbers. A lot of people don't realize how intelligent some animals really are. There are birds that know almost 2000 words, a gorilla that can use sign language, and elephants that can paint. That's more than a vast majority of humans in this world! "Three adult female chimps, their three 5-year-old offspring, and university student volunteers were tested on their ability to memorise the numbers 1 to 9 appearing at random locations on a touchscreen monitor.
The chimps had previously been taught the ascending order of the numbers. Using an ability akin to photograp…

This is my neurotic dog Spencer attacking her new ball. She is obsessed with it. She didn't eat for two days because she couldn't stand to be away from it. She also got a bone and couldn't decide which she liked better, so she decided to sit on her ball, and chew her bone at the same time. She's 11, but is crazy as ever. Australian Cattle dogs (her breed) has the record for longest lived dog, 29 years !- They are very loyal dogs and will never, EVER, leave your side. She also has to sleep on the bed with me. And if i'm sitting at my desk, she has to have her head on my foot or the chair. My previous dog was a cattle dog too, but only lived to 13. Poor Casey.



Spencer is REALLY Smart. She knows:SitGimme FiveLook BackTurn AroundRoll overBANG (She plays dead)JumpBarkStayAnd understandsWalk (we have to spell it out w-a-l-k, or she goes nuts)Bzzz (she chases flies)BallGreenie - it's a treatNo, bad spencerGo to bedGood girl!She's really…

I found this on an old, really crappy video camera I forgot I had. It's of my old cat Ace (the big Grey one) and his ex-best friend Lockheed, who left and betrayed him - on the side of the road no less. Karma is a bitch lockheed, you better watch out!

I'm still the Bug Whisperer

Image
In a previous post I wrote about being the "Bug Whisperer" cause these bugs kept showing up and doing the strangest things. Maybe it's cause I don't kill bugs anymore? This was the latest and most bizarre. I walked into my bathroom and this little guy was laying on it's back, in the exact center of the lid, just wiggling there! What the hell? Maybe it's trying to tell me something, but what? I have absolutely no idea what a bug could have to say to me.

Most of the time when someone has bugs in their house you would assume it's trashy or not clean. And although I could live and thrive in complete disorder and filth, my Mom doesn't. We have a maid service, Gardner's, and even these people that come out every two weeks to spray for bugs and check rap traps in the yard! So these guys are little survivors!

And truth be told, whenever I see them running around, I just say hi and leave them alone hahaha. I feel kinda bad cause I know my Mom doesn't wa…

Death

"we spend our whole lives trying to stop death. Eating, inventing,loving, praying... fighting, killing. But what do we reallyknow about death? Just that nobody comes back. But there comes a point in life... a moment... when your mind out lives its desires... its obsessions... when your habits... survive your dreams... and when your losses... Maybe death is a gift. - You wonder.- That's it. All I can tell you is that by this time tomorrow I'll be dead. I know when. I just can't say why." - The Life of David Gale

Cartograms

Wikipedia: “A cartogram is a map in which area is not preserved. Instead, another thematic mapping variable like travel time or Gross National Product is substituted for land area. In other words, the geometry or space of the map is distorted in order to convey the information of this alternate variable. There are two main types of cartograms: area and distance cartograms.”

Kurt Vonnegut Quotes

"I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'"

"Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; Man got to sit and wonder, 'Why, why, why?' Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land; Man got to tell himself he understand."

"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind."

"Many people need desperately to receive this message: 'I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.'"

"Since Alice had never received any religious instruction, and since she had led a blameless life, she never thought of her awful luck as being anyt…
