Some apes really are more equal than others.

The prophesies of Pierre Boulle are coming about!

NPR did a story about an orangutan that has learned to whistle. Why is this important? Because Bonnie, said simian, learned to whistle because the workers around her would whistle. From a super-nerdy science point-of-view it is cool.

You can read or listen to the story @ NPR here. As for Dr. Zaius, you can look at your copy of History of Apekind. I think it is in Chapter 2.

from any point of view that's awesome. Hopefully we "maniacs won't blow it up" before the Apes get to long division and spelling.
