And don't get me wrong, it`s remarkable that the chimp was able to be trained to do this. But trying to say that humans are unable to do it, when the chimp has been trained a lot more than humans, is an unfair comparison.

"You need to see the next part of the programme where the presenter goes head to head and can't even get one right. The reveal time is shortened to 0.04 of a second and the chimp still gets them all right. That amount of time isn`t enough for the presenter to even see all the numbers."

I`m assuming the presenter hasn`t practiced nearly as much as the chimp, if at all. Chimp practicing a task for 5 years versus presenter practicing hardly at all, who do you expect to do better? It`s not like this was a natural talent that the chimp had, he had to learn to do it, just like a human would have to learn to do it.

It's funny how some are offended by the idea that we evolved from the same ancestors as the all the other great apes. Then they tell you that we came from dirt.

"Just a well trained ape, I'm sure if a human focused the same amount of time, overall, that this one chimp has, they could do the same."
