So, is Curious George really a monkey? Can you identify what species of monkey or ape he might be? [more inside]

I'm fed up with monolithic flac and ape files with cue sheets that winamp can't use. I like 1 track to 1 file. Is there no relatively automatic way to split these files into individual, per track, files? It goes without saying, I hope, that the individual lossless files produced would be conveniently labeled (e.g. composer-work-movement) and properly tagged. Thanks.

The tale: an ape in a zoo is taught how to draw. The first thing it draws is the bars of its cage. I've heard this story a couple of times (often in connection with Vladimir Nabokov
), but can't find any information about the original experiment. Did this actually happen? Is it just a fable? Did Nabokov get Punk'd? Who was this ape and where can I find out more?

I've always wanted to hold a baby monkey or ape - actually, particularly a baby ape. Are there any places in New England where I can make this dream happen? [more inside]

A Planet Where Ask.Me Evolved From Mefi?!
As many of you know, there are great apes
(chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, orangutangs, and (according to many) humans) and lesser apes
, meaning gibbons.
If almost all of the apes out there are great apes, why on earth do people bother referring to them specifically as great apes? It seems to me that gibbons are the ones that aren't great apes, it would make sense to refer to the great apes as "apes" and gibbons as "lesser apes", or possibly "small apes".

Cats have kittens, dogs have puppies, Geese have goslings, foxes have kits, goats have kids, people have kids. What do apes have?

This might be an easy one for you all. My former roommate was telling me about this book that sounded really interesting but I cant think of the title for the life of me. All i remember is that the book contained a conversation between an ape and a human being about evolution or something like that. Ring any bells?
