If Elephants are so smart, then how come we never see them multitusk?

  1. If humans are so smart, why do they kill each other so much and threaten the planet they live on?
    One interesting metric of intelligence is how long a species is able to perpetuate itself (because isn’t that the ultimate goal?). By that metric, horseshoe crabs and sea sponges are pretty damn smart. If we became the first interplanetary species, we might contend for most intelligent by that metric.

    • I’m all for the admiration of animals, but some of the simplest things humans can do, aren’t even comprehensible to the closest thing to us in terms of intelligence, chimpanzees.
      The only reason we’re killing each other and doing all that awful stuff is because we haven’t yet evolved far enough beyond our closest relatives, those brutal, primitive apes. They are awesome though, I want a pet chimpanzee, only without the whole face-ripping off thing they tend to do. haha πŸ˜‰

      • Good point. It’s sad evolution takes so long. It’ll be interesting to see what sort of natural stress will guide human evolution. Also, we still aren’t clear of some annihilation events (we recently cut our southern hemisphere asteroid observatory, and nuclear stockpiles are still alarmingly high). Reason should triumph though.

      • We may be able to evolve ourselves very rapidly through technology and whatnot.
        And I live in the southern hemisphere, so I’m scared shitless now, thanks. haha πŸ˜‰

      • I can evolve myself. I am evolving into female, by way of transgender mutilation.

      • That would be de-evolving.

    • Oh no! Think somebody has a bee under his/her bonnet?
      I think the goat was being sarcastic. I think so anyway. However, that being said it is a universally accepted truth that goats and elephants do not get on!
      Maybe he should take back his joke. Its fucking racist that is!
