Apropos of fuck all, there are two sorts of chimpanzees, Common Chimpanzees and Bonobos.

Common Chimps would rather tear your face off than learn its numbers and Bonobos would much prefer to fuck you than count you.

The above is actually true.

"Amazing how the Chimps knew what was going on and learned the numbers and sequencing."

Not sure they learned the numbers beyond the sequencing.

Can they see what's in common between a set of ten apples and a set of ten oranges, but not in common between a set of ten apples and a set of nine apples?

And learning sequences probably wasn't a trick acquired by either humans or chimps, but by our common ancestor.

Of course, it is remarkable that chimp short-term memory contains space for at least a couple more items than the human one does, as that is nearly 30% bigger.

Not sure how much that enables "cleverness" though.

Sorry Jon that ones a draw (The humans are actually worse they pay a lot for the priviledge)

….produced from the coffee beans which have been digested by a certain Indonesian cat-like animal called a palm civet or also civet cat. This is the reason kopi luwak is also called cat poop coffee or civet cat coffee. The feces of this cat will be collected, finished and sold as kopi luwak.

Re: Chimps 1 v 0 Humans
Human short-term memory generally has a capacity for 7 "items".

(Apparently better performance is usually down to clever chunking of information into these items. Not much room for this with bare numbers)

No surprise we're shit at tasks requiring even only a couple of extra items.
