    This is a story I tell all my students the first day of class (I teach engineers and designers how to use Civil 3D Design software).

    There was a testing lab that had a large cage with five chimps in it, they would slide in a step ladder, close the door and then a panel would open in the ceiling and a bunch of bananas would be lowered into the cage. As soon as one of the chimps would start up the ladder, the researchers would turn on a fire hose and spray the other chimps in the cage.

    This went on for a few weeks until the chimps wouldn’t try to climb the ladder to get the bananas. The researchers then pulled one chimp out of the cage and replaced that one with a new chimp that had never been around the others. They slid in the ladder and opened the hatch in the ceiling and as soon as the new chimp saw the bananas, he headed straight for the ladder but the other chimps started beating on the new chimp to keep him from going up the ladder. We the new chimp stopped trying to go up the ladder, the others left him alone.

    One by one, the original chimps were all replaced with new chimps and every time the researchers slid in the ladder and opened the hatch, the others would jump on the new chimp and stop him from getting the bananas. By this time, they had stopped using the fire hose a long time ago, but the chimps would still beat the new chimp whenever the ladder was slid in and the hatch opened.

    The moral of this story?

    It just proves that all too often things are done for a reason that none knows why or what the original cause was. So when someone says to you, “Have You Tried It This Way?” – Keep an open mind and at least try it before you cast it off because you “Have Always Done It Like That”

    Two chimps are fighting over a branch.

    Bobo clearly had the branch first!

    But Coco feels entitled because he saw it first!

    So who gets the branch?


    Coco. Bobo could tell it was just a matter of time before Coco went bananas :)

    Religious Cowboy The devout cowboy lost his favorite Bible while he was mending fences out on the range. Three weeks later, a chimpanzee walked up to him carrying the Bible in its mouth. The cowboy couldn’t believe his eyes. He took the precious book out of the chimpanzee’s mouth, raised his eyes heavenward and exclaimed, “It’s a miracle!” “Not really,” said the chimpanzee. “Your name is written inside the cover.”

    Front Seat= A policeman in the big city stops a man in a car with a chimpanzee in the front seat. “What are you doing with that chimpanzee?” He exclaimed, “You should take it to the zoo.” The following week, the same policeman sees the same man with the chimpanzee again in the front seat, with both of them wearing sunglasses. The policeman pulls him over. “I thought you were going to take that chimpanzee to the zoo!” The man replied, “I did. We had such a good time we are going to the beach this weekend!”
