We are supposed to be very closely connected to chimpanzee's on the "evolutionary" scale.

How come then I wake up craving a cup of coffee and not a banana?

Sorry, just a random thought... :cool2:

Maybe Occam's razor can help us here...

Maybe it's the caffeine

Caffeine is a bitter, white crystalline xanthine alkaloid that acts as a stimulant drug and an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor.

That's because the human brain is much more complex than a chimp's, so we crave for more complex things as coffee, reading and going to the moon. It is conceivable that in millions of years from now chimps will be able to do that.

Because you're addicted to caffeine? ;)

Yes and “three monkeys hitting keys at random on typewriters for an infinite amount of time will almost surely produce Hamlet"--Infinite monkey theorem.

Hey, I know those guys! They work with me, I have to comment on their reports.......

Is there any evidence to suggest chimps don't wake up craving coffee?

Of course, this is not to be taken as direct evidence for evolution though.

The theorem was great. The response even better! ROFL. :24:

I'm not sure if mocking mainstream science is the best way to get your point across, but then again, Evolution predicts lots of variation of intelligence within a certain group of people :P
