Here's the article:
Here's the long and the short of it:
Male chimps like older female chimps to have crazy monkey sex with. They are trying to figure out why that is but they believe it's due to lack of menopause/more experience.
Here's the best paragraph:
But it is more than an avoidance of young females that is behind this trend. Part of the project is to collect urine samples, either directly by means of a plastic bag on the end of a long pole, or by collecting it from the surface of leaves after the fact. This allowed the scientists to monitor steroid levels.
This sounds like they gave a bunch of bored middle age men the task of collecting chimp urine.
In other news:
Yesterday was fucking weird for three reasons. First, when going into work I saw a bus driver (school bus mind you) and a trucker fighting with each other. They were doing so by leaning out of their vehicles and shaking fists and shouting at each other. It was kind of beautiful but I don't remember what it pertained to. Second, I had a man call yesterday morning, while at work, and asked if we "did STD testing." In a confused, sick state, I asked he meant sexually transmitted diseases, and he did mean that. I kindly told him no. Third, I left work at like 11 cause I was sick and I went home and did nothing until fiveish, then I took a nap. For those who don't know, I don't nap. I can't really, unless I'm disgustingly tired, sick, or, to be honest, am with Lindsey and she wants to take a nap. Well, yesterday, I napped as I was the first two, and in my sleepy state, I figured what I would say to her when she woke me. Well, it came out as something like "You're just in time." I don't know what this means and neither did she. I tried explaining myself, which was difficult as my brain was mush, I was tired, and I myself didn't know what I meant, but, God, did I try to explain myself. About an hour later, I became sane, and had no idea why I'd done what I'd done. A very strange day.
