    that sounds a bit like the kangaroo/I don't know myth, which turned out to not be true. Shame though, would be cool.

    What's a pro-simian?

    I know it sounds like lore, but I thought it might be worth telling anyway.

    At first, I was going to explain. Then I remembered that the classifcation system has surely been changed a hundred times since I last checked, so I decided to link to Wikipedia instead.

    I use to be really interested in zoological taxonomy, but it's unfortunately managed by a bunch of directionless incompetents.

    No primates live further north than those guys. And like all old world monkeys, they've got those bold, chiseled features.

    EDIT: For some reason, I'm in a wildlife tour guide sort of mood.

    But I can only go so far, for reasons such as...

    ...I hardly know anything about squirrels. I find them very uninteresting. Cute, but uninteresting. I know that there aren't any squirrels around here like that, but where are you? England?

    I can tell you that squirrels are rodents. That might seem obvious, but it's actually quite amazing how many things people incorrectly believe to be rodents. Moles, rabbits, raccoons, shrews, ferrets, hedgehods... None of those are rodents.

    As a nice little tie around: The primate order is very closely related to the rodent order. We are members of the same super order.

    That's an awesome picture. It needs to be on an album cover. Preferably an album that goes platinum.

    Magic, yeah I'm in England. Squirrels are totally awesome here, you put out bird feeders in your garden of the most hideous complexity and they still figure them out somehow and get the nuts out. It's cool to sit and watch them figuring it out, they sometimes work in teams and stuff, the intelligence is pretty amazing for a rodent. I like contriving things for them that are challenging yet possible, I don't wanna cheat and do the 'superior intelligence' thing. Mostly cos I'm not sure I'd win

    But what about this:



    Is it just me or should the caption read "Have no fear! With my super electro-knee I can save you - allow me to demonstrate on this door!" and the woman's like "Woe gee honey it really is electric!"

    by the way, the monkeys are so cool, I love the frank expression on their faces, like someone's just walked in their bathroom and they're like "Yeah - what?"

    I also came across this, which is just wrong on so many levels....

    The third from the right looks to be contemplative or focused on something in his hands. Great photo.
