Dance Monkey, Dance!!

This has long been one of my favorite videos of all time, and accurately displays my feelings on the human race.

My favorite line of the whole clip:

The monkeys feel alone–  all 6 billion of them.

One thing I always love bringing up in sociology classes is the fact that genetics cannot uncover any marker for race.  We’ve found the genetic markers for skin tone and color, but there isn’t one for race.  It’s a make-believe taxonomy that we use to separate ourselves and find solidarity amongst small groups.

There is, however, some genetic markers that show we’re all a bunch of monkeys.  In fact, we’re only 1.6% NOT monkey.

How ya like that, ya monkey!
