A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

23 February 2007


Ron Chusid is commenter of the day. I found his off-topic remark over at Pharyngula.

First, read the story, which is all about to do with mammalian spears, but has no aquatic component--unless fishing with those spears is involved. Does anyone know if primates hunt the beaver, and if so would they have shot their spears at it?

Now read the comment:
Off topic, but I figure more evidence for evolution is always on topic here.
Chimps show they are more like humans than previously believed. They learn to use spears as weapons, and they go after BUSH BABIES. If only we were smart enough to wipe them out when we had the chance.

Can't be--wouldn't apply to humans. Not unless humans were somehow genetically related to chimps ... Ridiculous!

And as everybody knows we're a lot closer to tree octopi. Hence my concern for the species.

But are your trees able to cope with the Colossal Tree Octopi?
