    Default So just how far have we come, exactly?

    So much for high and mighty humans, chimps are besting us in memory games.
    Humans are weak, slow, and awkward, perhaps the most helpless and useless animal on Earth, we would have been wiped out long ago if not for our cranial capacity. Now, chimps are beating us at a few facets of cerebral aptitude. I see this and I marvel at how lucky the human race is: to become the dominant species on the planet with no assets but a brain.

    Eh, those are just Japanese people. Needs to be more widespread.

    I find this quite humorous though.

    Japanese college students, actually.
    Asian college students, Japanese being no exception, are damn studious and hard-working.
    At the very least, more so than American ones.

    One of the reasons,why the humans lost, was our ability to speak.

    Maybe it's more of a memory problem. Some students that they tested on maybe didn't have as good memory as others and were probably not trained in that kind of memory testing. These chimps probably had better memory and were tested more.

    Wow, I just put chimps on the same level as humans for intelligence. We evolved from them right? So there. We're the same.

    Wow, watched the youtube video. No way I can do it in the right sequence when the numbers show for only a fraction of a second in the 2nd half of the video.
