Need_MindBleach: Hasn't there been a healthy bit a skepticism toward the whole "apes signing" thing recently?
letmenot: I just watched this documentary where a bunch of signing apes took over the planet....

Not something I really follow, but I kind of liked the idea that they were much smarter than most people think. As I am a lazy bastard, I'll need you to do some research on this and present it to me by next week. I'll need source material for all references, and I want it double spaced, printed on quality paper, and most importantly, in comic sans.

BlackMtnMan: It's a dead monkey.......me no feel sad, subbie.
jprogram: This chimpanzee is probably an inspiration for the 1980's movie "Project X." (Absolutely no relation to the recent drunken cesspool of a movie.) It's the one with the yonug hot Helen Hunt people!
BassChild: I'm at CWU right now, where this chimp institute is, and just finishing up an anthropology course on primate social behavior. One of the things that got me fascinated in the subject was reading this book, written by one of the founders of the CHCI. It's been shown pretty conclusively that not only are chimpanzees capable of using language (sign), but they use it to communicate with one another (not just humans), can teach it to their offspring, invent their own signs, are capable of complex emotional expression and social relationships and at least some abstract thought/language, etc.
