An Experiment That Puts Man Against Ape And Sparks An Interesting Debate
Feb 16, 2015
Radio 1 provided a simple objective: remove the nut from the tube. Simple, right? Apparently not. A number of people try to get the nut out of the tube but to no avail. Soon after giving up, they're handed an iPad to watch an ape reach the goal they had attempted. This simple experiment says a lot about what humans really know.
There have always been scientific experiments trying to find a correlation between humans and primates. Typically these experiments involve physical stature as well as mental capacity. A Belgian radio station decided to conduct an experiment of their own to test just how smart humans are.
