    Oh sure. Next you're going to tell me that Sasquatch isn't real and duck quacks really do echo.

  • Quixote||

    Yes, and the suggestion being made here is actually quite offensive, to the effect that intelligent people, including certain distinguished members of the academic community, are so "gullible" that they can't understand a parody when it's presented in an inappropriately deadpan manner. See the documentation of America's leading criminal "satire" case at:

    Koko's messages were *always* for gullible people.

    Step aside!!! I am a SCIENTIST!!!

    I've studied expertology of expertologism of gorillaism, and I checked out Koko's signs VERY carefully, with 10,253 accompanying bar graphs, pie charts, regression studies, etc. ...

    Koko was REALLY saying, and I quote,

    "I wanna hump all the young blonde chicks. Then climb the sky-scrapers in Manhattan."

  • Unicorn Abattoir||

    Makes more sense than anyone with an (R) or (D) after their name.

  • Libertarius||

    Leftoids always do this in their cartoon and movie propaganda as well. Even if a gorilla somehow communicated this, it could have absolutely no understanding of what it was saying. Is it ironic to have a pre-conceptual animal tell you how stupid you are?

    So, how do you know, exactly, that this is a pre-conceptual animal? Show your work. That goes for you, too, Bragg.

    Seriously, how do you people know that the animal isn't actually using language? I'm not claiming she is, but I want you to prove how she isn't, other than citing your narrative of "she's non-human, therefore she can't."

  • Kandralla||

    It is the responsibility of those who have made wild claims to provide the proof, not the other way around.

    This kids, and other nonsense like "Well it might not be true but the idea behind it is probably true", is how societies fall.

  • Libertarius||

    Are you serious? Animals do not possess the conceptual level of consciousness, humans are the only known beings in the universe who can form a concept. An animal exists on the perceptual level, reacting to whatever concretes are within its immediate perceptual awareness (many philosophers have also attempted to restrain man to this level of consciousness, the result of which is the state of today's collapsing intellectual world).

    I've found that anybody that shares I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE videos on Facebook generally have a horrendous understanding of science.

  • Eternal Blue Sky||

    "Science" is the "Magic" of the modern age. Generally unimpressive to the modern magicians, but idolized by the masses who don't understand it.

  • crufus||

    Could someone please post a video of a cute dog sniffing a cute kitten and then eating it.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

    My first job out of High School was at St Paul and over the next 5 years Iearned so very much. Seeing the hospital torn down tears a small piece of my heart out. The Daughters of Charity and the doctors and staff of St Paul Hospital will always be with me.
