"It's not about Harriet Tubman, it's about keeping the picture on the $20," [he] said on Tuesday evening . He pulled a $20 bill from his pocket, pointed at Jackson and added "Y'know? Why would you want to change that?"
Question: Do chimpanzees have theory of mind (the ability to ascribe mental states to others and use the states to explain and predict their actions)?
Experiment: An adult chimpanzee was shown a series of videotaped scenes of a human actor struggling with a variety of problems. With each videotape the chimpanzee was given several photographs, one that included a picture of the solution to the problem.
Result: The chimpanzee consistently chose the correct photographs
Conclusion: The animal recognized the videotape as representing a problem, understood the actor's purpose, and chose alternatives compatible with that purpose. Therefore, chimpanzees have a theory of mind.
Original Comment “So, when the rightfully angry people of Ohio and Michigan and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin find out after a few months in office that President Trump wasn’t going to do a damn thing for them, it will be too late to do anything about it. But I get it. You wanted to send a message. You had righteous anger and justifiable anger. Well, message sent. Good night, America. You’ve just elected the last president of the United States.”
Clarification “Yeah, well, that’s what I think—you know, the United States that we know now, for better or worse, won’t be the United States that we know after four years of Donald Trump. So, we all—those of us who are upset at the things about this country that we’re upset about, the way to fix it isn’t to put Trump in there, you know, to blow it up.”
