    No problem Amigo, there was enought info that I could guess which monkey you meant.

    I added the information about the apes because, regretfully, most people seem to feel that all non-human primates are “monkeys” so as a frustrated, retired, teacher I try to sneak in lessons wherever I can.

    “What a $3t show the justice department is”

    As the old one-liner from the 1960’s (possibly earlier, but I didn’t really understand the words until I was 7 years old)

    “Here in the United States, we have the best legal system money can buy.”

    There are three known non-human primates known to use tools. Two are great apes; Pan troglodytes (chimpanzees) and Pongo abelii (orangutans). The third is a true monkey species, Sapajus libidinosus (black-striped capuchin). Oddly of the 5 known species of capuchin monkeys only the black-striped have been noted as using tools.

    Of the three, to date, only the chimpanzees have specifically adapted their tool making to include primitive weapons for hunting.

    I’m sorry Dave.

    Rob should have had the AI singing “Daisy” as it faded out

    If it wasn’t that this arc was originally written in 1949, I would blame Bergholdt Stuttley Johnson for the design.

    @jasonsnakelover You story sounds a lot like what happened to a friend of mine recently.

    She is a professional herpetologist who runs a reptile rescue group, as well as travels to various schools here in Texas to teach children about reptiles as pets.

    Recently she was out in Amarillo and had car trouble so had to stop at a motel for two days while repairs were made, During the night one of her bearded dragons escaped, and they were frantically searching for him when a loud scream came from down the hall.

    It seems housekeeping came in while my friend was on the phone with her husband, and the beardie decided to hitch a ride on the cart of warm from the laundry towels.

    Back in the stone age when everything was privately owned Bulletin board systems (BBS), a 14.4 K modem was considered high-tech, and you paid per kilobyte of data, acronyms and ascii “images” made sense as a way to reduce data usage.

    As high-speed data transfer became common the ascii images evolved into emojis and have even become their own international language with an online emojipedia site listing all the currently used versions and their “official” meanings

    I’ve heard of other carp species living 50 plus years. I’m curious how big “Tish” was, as the common goldfish will continue to grow its entire life

    “… the dam is going to be dismantled…” is the wrong term, Tarzan “dismantled” it a couple of weeks ago.
