Yale researchers train monkeys to use money. Guess what they bought?
SEX!

Economic researchers at Yale managed to successfully train Capuchin monkeys to understand
and use currency.
The result? The monkeys used their newfound currency to buy sex:

Perhaps the most distinguishing characteristic of money, after all, is its fungibility,
the fact that it can be used to buy not just food but anything. During the chaos
in the monkey cage, Chen saw something out of the corner of his eye that he would later
try to play down but in his heart of hearts he knew to be true. What he witnessed
was probably the first observed exchange of money for sex in the history of monkeykind.
(Further proof that the monkeys truly understood money: the monkey who was paid for sex
immediately traded the token in for a grape.)

Re: Yale researchers train monkeys to use money. Guess what they bought?
Cool! Well, this is not so surprising really.
All they did was add money to the monkeys system of trading food and grooming for sex.

Check these monkeys out.... [link to www.time.com]

"The macaques' exchange of services simply illustrates a nifty system of cooperation that allows for successful mating. The basic premise, says Gumert, is called biological market theory, which follows the elementary principles of supply versus demand. When applied to the voluntary sex life of long-tailed macaques, it means that the price that one group is willing to pay for a commodity that the other group has depends on the scarcity or abundance of that commodity on the market."


Nifty system of cooperation... lol

Re: Yale researchers train monkeys to use money. Guess what they bought?
There you have it, proof that money is the root of all "evil", well at least half of it, i'll let you guess the other half.

Before, those monkeys lived in almost pure bliss. Sleep, eat, play, fuck, rinse and repeat. Introduce money in the mix and everything goes to shit.

When we were kids, we were thought to share, and everyone was happy. Then we grew up and were thought trade was a better system, and we're all miserable.

Fucking bankers.

Re: Yale researchers train monkeys to use money. Guess what they bought?
Because you all are socially engineered to think you are realized ideals from birth.

You all are not Human beings...you operate like Animals.

You all basically follow the same path that bacteria do.

The path of least resistence by default because that is the easiest path to follow.

The path of most resistance is the path Human beings follow.

You can strive to be a Human being...But you are not born as one.

Basically if you think you are a Human being...You are suffering from a delusion.

The path of least resistance or takeing more power than you give in order to sustain existence is what animals do.

They chop down trees faster than they regrow to survive.

It's the default or mindless path

Beavers never seem to be able to chop whole forrests down.

People can though given enough time.

But Human beings follow the path of most resistance.

They choose to chop down trees as fast as or slower than they regrow in order to sustain existence.

The knowledgeable path

The path of least resistance is finite and fragile.

The path of most resistance is infinite and indesturctible.

Of course as long as the trees don't run out.

Basically what you all call civilization is more of a domestication.

You were taught to think you are Human beings.

That is sustained by taking more than you give...or chopping down trees faster than they regrow...until the trees run out.

Then what is called civilization collapses.

An you all just say...Oh well...It's just Human nature.

But it's not Human nature at all.

After the dust settles...The top or owners of the enterprise employ the survivors to do it all over again.
