For all the Evolution haters out there, chew on this little vid from some Japanese television show (by the way, Japan has the coolest shows ever!). As if there wasn’t enough irrefutable evidence of Darwin’s theory out there already, this video should pretty much seal the deal. Check out how this chimp effortlessly manages to mount and navigate one of those Segway contraptions, you know, the ones that were supposed to revolutionize transportation until everyone realized that it’s impossible to ride a Segway without looking like an idiot. The monkey doesn’t look like he’s enjoying the ride so much as he appears to embracing his chance to finally escape his human handlers. In the monkey’s defense, if someone tried to make you wear overalls, you’d probably try to escape too. Survival of the fittest I guess. Darwin would be proud.
