We’re all just monkeys

We're just a bunch of monkeys. That's the message of Ernest Cline in this clip:

Like it? You can reread the words to the clip or download the MP3 version on the comedian's website.

Relatedly, on the topic of our ape ancestry, I want to share another clip with you:

If you're worried that being part of a greater family makes us any less special, then don't be. Of course we're special! Our game is a unique game of freedom and flexibility. We just have to learn that it's easier for us to adept to our environment than it is for our environment to adept to us. Meanwhile, we may not be quite gorilla-sized, but we are big, in anything, in any place. We're great apes!
