    Sorry, but I don’t follow the brain teaser answer. The puzzle says that rowing on still water is 7 minutes faster than the current. But the answer says that they row at 1/5th the distance per minute, and the current goes half that speed. Therefore they take 5 minutes to row the full distance, and the current takes 10. The difference is 5 minutes, not 7.

    And is this proof of evolution? As you well know Pete – cats are cleverer – especially this one.
    Some humans are just dumb.

    Why would the Monkey want to eat dried leaves ?
    It probably was trying to figure out a higher value food, but dried leaves would have less food value, so a fail for the Monkey.

    Proof of sentient thought maybe.
