I do have a name, it is Alleinad Zeuqzav. I am the twin sister of Alleirbag Zeuqzav. Because of her, I've decided to use this thing! Don't be afraid to talk to me, I'm very friendly, but you know, secretive. . Double life as an agent has its sacrifices...Gah! o3o
Guys, I'm a big softy, it's in my sign, so if you need someone to talk to, please feel free to message me. (But by being a top secret agent, I know that privacy is everything, so if you want it to be a private matter feel free to mail me!)
... well, for anything, just ask!
Agent Ladybug, signing off!
Taking a smoke break while shooting Planet Of The Apes on the Fox Ranch, 1967.
It’s hard to call someone a damn, dirty ape—as Charlton Heston once famously did—when they’re decked out head to toe in Armani.
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.)
Always be yourself.
This is everything. omg
they give 0 fucks
Yeah like how are you supposed to represent your culture wearing someone else’s clothes?
