Monkeys want to go into space. They just don't have the thumbs for it.
I'm confused... Lots of monkeys have thumbs, right?
They have thumbs, similar to us. However, they function differently. They aren't as opposable as ours. therefore, they don't have the thumbs for it.
Neither the brains nor the inclination. But thumbs seems like as good an explanation.
I guess it depends on what kind of monkey. The Wikipedia tells me baboons have very similar hand structure to ours.
Nooo.. Monkeys don't want to go into space.
How do you know? Have you asked?
Yes, I asked.
I said "blink once if you don't want to go to space and twice if you do".
The monkey blinked once.
His eyes must be getting really dry by now.
If there's a pun, I missed it. They don't have the brains for it, and one monkey who was sent into space by humans and returned was absolutely terrified when retrieved.
