Some monkeys and apes are even more clever: one monkey of the group yells the warning signal, and while others flee for safety it can steal others' food. But this tactic has a problem; it cannot be used too many times since eventually others realize that it is faking and no longer pay attention to it.

Yes, but they've mysteriously been replaced with raisins. :wink:

Normally, I'm so well organized that people make fun of me. Lately, I'm so unorganized that I'm embarrassed. I'm so tempted to take the furniture out of my spare bedroom, put it in storage, and buy a complete office set with big filing cabinets and shelves. 8-[

At least your name isn't Gilbert. Otherwise, we'd have to wonder: What's eating Gilbert's grapes?
