OK, I wasn't sure where to post this but I really wanted to share this. For the last few weeks I've been working at a biggish zoo as part of my study course-work. It's been pretty cool but not particularly relevant to LO- except for something I learnt in my last week.
There's a pack of chimps at the zoo, about a dozen (I know they're not but I will probably refer to them as monkeys- in fact I already haved). Like all chimps some of the pack are pretty smart and they're all massively muscled and strong. Now- the keepers like to provide the pack with puzzles and problems to keep them occupied and not bored. These can be tricky to devise as chimps are the ultimate destroyers of property. One of the puzzle-feeders is a hollow plastic ball with little holes drilled into it. It gets stuffed with food and the chimps have to fiddle the food out of it. To stop the chimps hurling these reasonably hefty plastic balls at each other (and zoo visitors) they have a heavy chain attached so they can be attached to climb-bars or tree branches in the enclosure. This is all pretty reasonable until one of the chimps learnt how to undo the D-bolts that held locked the chains around bars. Clever monkey then freed one of the feeders and began to wave it around. Picture in your head a large monkey wielding a ball and chain, morningstar style, and chasing the other chimps around with it, giving them the bash with his new-found toy.
Now, that's fairly entertaining in its own right but what is really cool is that he discovered he could spin around and whirl the ball and chain in hige arcs, just like a Night Goblin Fanatic. Until chimp proof D-bolts were introduced it was a reasonably common occurence to see this chimp whirling around the enclosure while all the other chimps scampered up trees and into tunnels. The most amusing thing is watching him encounter trees or walls (or 'impassable terrain' as I like to think of it) and losing control of the chain.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
that would be hilariuos to see, I can just imagine it throwing it at the visitors that are looking throught he glass...
i need to find something interesting to put here
Ok Scotty, jokes over... NOW BEAM UP MY CLOTHES!
Rofl, sounds awesome. A more advanced version of the monkeys in a space oddysee it sounds like. You should use the old D-bolts just one more time and bring a camera .
Ze titles yez...
