Some guy told him this and he totally believes it now.  Senility will do that to a person.

I wish this was real. Sorry about your scientific ethics and shiat, but it would make the world a much more magical place if humanzees and human-gorillas were real.

That would certainly explain why native Floridians have earned their own Fark tag. Genetically speaking...

"First up, the timeline. The institution Gallup says carried out the experiment is these days called the Yerkes National Primate Research Centre - but it was established in 1930, not in the 1920s.

Its founder, psychologist and primatologist Robert Yerkes, was a divisive figure in the scientific community, given his stated support for eugenics research, but he was also fascinated by animal behaviour, especially that of primates.

Before it was called the Yerkes National Primate Research Centre, Yerkes' lab went by other names during the 1920s, including the Yale Laboratories of Primate Biology, and the Anthropoid Breeding and Experiment Station in Orange Park, Florida, which presumably is the facility Gallup is referring to."


Erm. What?

Also:

"They inseminated a female chimpanzee with human semen from an undisclosed donor and claimed not only that pregnancy occurred but the pregnancy went full term and resulted in a live birth."

Well, considering all the other sperm donating stories on Fark, I'd say it's safe to assume the donor was the person running the operation.

Different experiment. That was an orang cross, not a chimp cross.

This was corroborated but records unearthed that date back to ~49 - 44 BC. With the science expansions of the time, Romans explored many scientific areas including astrology, phrenology, and alchemy.
During this time, interest was growing in the biologic sciences and many experiment were conducted to discern the original of every day chimeras and cross-species individuals that are commonplace today. To this end, Roman emperors supported and funded extensive research in the new sciences.
Ceasar is reported to be the "father" of some of the scientific advances through his altruistic donation of genetic material in a cross-species experiment with orangutans.
One successful experiment resulted in offspring whose descendents have integrated (to a limited degree) into modern society. The family line that can be traced back to the groundbreaking breeding program are known as Orang-Julius and are easily identifiable by their characteristic amber skin tone.

The biggest favour Donald Trump ever did for anyone was in making George W. Bush look positively statesmanlike in comparison.

"In the matter of days, or a few weeks, they began to consider the moral and ethical considerations and the infant was euthanised,"

Then, they began to consider the moral and ethical considerations of having done that, and things turned really ugly.

It seems that when you cross an Orang with a human you get a raging orange shiat-gibbon.

I object to your use of portmanteau in the former case, yet hyphenation in the latter.

> Gallup told The Sun.  "They inseminated a female chimpanzee with human semen from an undisclosed donor and claimed not only that pregnancy occurred but the pregnancy went full term and resulted in a live birth."

I think Gallup  likes semen and talking bout it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_G._Gallup
Since the 1990s, Gallup has researched human evolutionary psychology exclusively. Gallup's article entitled "Does Semen Have Antidepressant Properties?"[1] attracted the attention of the media[2] when it was published in 2002.
