Was there ever any doubt? Monkeys have better memories.

Amyumu the chimpanzee trounced a British memory champion in a memory contest. As if they needed to do this test for memory supremacy. All one had to do was ask Aruban officials, suspects in the Natalee Holloway case and those that wish to spin the stories how good monkeys memories are. They have been righting wrongs and correcting lies for 2+ years. Word to the wise … don’t ever question a monkeys memory. Don’t ever challenge a monkey to a memory contest when armed with a computer … some people never learn.

Both chimp and man watched a computer screen on which five numbers flashed up at various positions before being obscured by white squares.

They then had to touch the squares in order of the numbers they concealed, from lowest to highest. When the numbers were shown for just a fifth of a second – the blink of an eye – Ayumu got it right almost 90 per cent of the time.

His human opponent scored a rather less impressive 33 per cent, Channel Five programme Extraordinary Animals will reveal.

      “Escape to Chimp Eden” premiers on Animal Planet February 8th at 9:00 p.m. EST. The commercials show a man rescuing chimps held in cages and chains and then teaching them to live wild again. They’re so much like us, physically, socially.

      And I love Red’s analogy to the memories of members of this site. A very special group of people.

      I would like to see who else can come up with the same answer I did.
      The question. Who on the island would have wanted to hurt Natalee the most??
