Knock, Knock, Evolution here…

I don’t know about you but this scares the crap out of me:

Chimpanzees are known to use tools. Many scientific studies, including
Jane Goodall’s famous work with chimpanzees in Gombe, Tanzania, have
documented chimps using tools to complete or simplify tasks like
cracking nuts open and getting termites out of logs. They’ve been
observed using a stick to make an opening in a tree trunk big enough to
where they get get an arm in to pull out some bugs or honey or other
delicacy. But not many researchers have been able to effectively
observe chimps outside of Gombe — it’s hard to get them accustomed
enough to human presence to catch them acting naturally for long
periods of time. And until now, no one has documented a definite case
of chimpanzees using tools to hunt in the traditional sense.

Looks like we are only a few hundred years from having a very flooded job market…
