Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.
Thiiiiiiis, people, thiiiis!
1. Kill alpha male types
2. Achieve world peace
I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work. He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.
I just watched the documentary and there is so much more about the troop that isn’t in this photoset—not only does the troop have a culture of little aggression and greater cooperation, but any incoming jerk baboons learned within a few months that their shitty behaviour was in no way acceptable, that the troop only rewarded sociability, and they changed accordingly.
If effin’ baboons can learn this there’s pretty much no reason to believe that our only option in dealing with assholes is to just ignore their behaviour and let it continue.
there really is no excuse.
"incoming jerk baboons" hahaha
Randomly remembering a joke and laughing about it to yourself
This fucking duck. Gets me every time.
My Uncle just tried to insinuate that I smoke cigarettes. I was getting some milk and my grandma had burned some beans earlier so it smells nasty right now and he was like “It smells like CIGARETTES” and I could hear his voice aimed at me when he said cigs. And then he repeated himself and said, “It smells like tobacco.” And then I was like, “It’s burned beans.”
Dumby I don’t smoke stoges
HE DID NOT GET ROB PAULSEN TO DO THIS
