Its seem that while Darwin was right that man evolved from monkeys, we did not evolve too much. The coconut only rolls so far from the tree, so to speak. But let's let MSNBC tell the story:
A savory meat dinner goes a long way, as in all the way, in the chimp world, according to a new study that found wild male chimpanzees exchange meat for sex with females on a long-term basis.
It's also suspected the same holds true for hunter-gatherer humans, since earlier studies show better hunters tend to have more sexual partners. Females of both primate species benefit by receiving better nutrition, especially during depleting fertile periods, so they may be driving the relationship between reproductive success and good male hunting skills.
But wait, it gets worse. See that picture at the top of this post? The caption to that picture, on the MSNBC web site, reads: "An adult male chimpanzee, holding the rib case of a red colobus monkey he caught."
Yes, that's right, powerful Chimps kill off smaller monkeys so they can barter for sex.
Is that a metaphor for the current economy, or what?
