Apes Shown To Be Able To Plan Ahead


They don't bring along an umbrella or sunglasses that might be needed later, but researchers say apes, like people, can plan ahead.

I mostly don't bring along an umbrella or sunglasses that might be needed later either (and I like bananas and scratching my armpits). Usually, I bring sunglasses for rain and an umbrella for sun and try to look on the sunny side. Always on the sunny side. At least armed with sunglasses in the rain my eyes get fewer cats and dogs in them, a cleaner lens, and I can be thankful that I haven't yet lost my millionth pair.
