holy motherfucking shit on a platter

The recent release of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" reminded me of one of my favorite ape vs. man films – this 1932 video that shows a baby chimpanzee and a baby human undergoing the same basic psychological tests.

Its gets weirder – the human baby (Donald) and the chimpanzee baby (Gua) were both raised as humans by their biological/adopted father Winthrop Niles Kellogg.  Kellogg was a comparative psychologist fascinated by the interplay between nature and nurture, and he devised a fascinating (and questionably ethical) experiment to study it:

Suppose an anthropoid were taken into a typical human family at the day of birth and reared as a child. Suppose he were fed upon a bottle, clothed, washed, bathed, fondled, and given a characteristically human environment; that he were spoken to like the human infant from the moment of parturition; that he had an adopted human mother and an adopted human father.

First, Kellogg had to convince his pregnant wife he wasn’t crazy:

 …the enthusiasm of one of us met with so much resistance from the other that it appeared likely we could never come to an agreement upon whether or not we should even attempt such an undertaking.

She apparently gave in, because Donald and Gua were raised, for nine months, as brother and sister. Much like Caesar in the “Planet of the Apes” movies, Gua developed faster than her “brother,” and often outperformed him in tasks. But she soon hit a cognitive wall, and the experiment came to an end. (Probably for the best, as Donald had begun to speak chimpanzee.)

You can read more about Kellogg’s experiment, its legacy, and public reaction to it here.

This is the most adorable experiment that has ever been done.

Disclaimer: Nope. Not Hitler. Not a Nazi, either. I don't hate Jews. I am not a mass murderer. No, I don't find the numerous deaths of innocent souls funny or nice. Adolf Hitler was straight down fucked and what he did was really shitty.
I am a Catholic who identifies more as a Protestant and I love people.

Frick, then why hitlerspage?
Fuck. I'm not entirely sure either but I'd like to think it's because I find Hitler from Afterschool Charisma an adorable and nice fella
(which he is... for the first few chapters).

If anything, I assure you, I AM A NICE PERSON! Insert smiley face.
Go drop by my ask to tell me anything about yourself or about your day and I'll try to respond as helpful-y as I can. ^_^
Also, if it wasn't clear enough already: NO, I WON'T KILL YOU.

Little piece of information though: Though Hitler was basically a crazy person, he took power because of his immense ability to convince people of what he believed, and with that he twisted their heads and made them his followers. This information is nothing of importance I just wanted to share it to you because I found it interesting.

Okay now for an actual About area: Hallo! My name is Dani. My friends sometimes call me Luna and I find that cute so choose whichever you like. I like dolphins, literature, math, classical music and science/sci-fi. Here's a link to my interests page!
