Jane Goodall: Trump debates like a chimp in a dominance ritual

"In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals,"Jane Goodall, the world-famous primatologist and anthropologist, told the Atlantic's James Fallows for a piece posted Saturday.

Male chimpanzees try to impress rivals with aggressive behavior, Goodall said, such as stamping and throwing rocks. "The more vigorous and imaginative the display," the more likely it is that the chimp will rise atop the hierarchy and remain.

But these animals give me hope;

We both perceived that something chimp-like was going on, if in slightly different directions.

With humidity, it'll feel like a bazillion degrees. Sad

I envy you with your sunroom. Oh how wonderful!

My Nip has not been outside in what we call cold lol. We'll see how she responds to 45.

I guess we did okay this summer. Tons of 90-degree days, ugh; but it rarely went above 95 or even 92, so could have been a lot worse.

My pets love the heat and don't seem to much mind the cold. They just snuggle up when it gets cool. They'd rather I leave the windows open year-round no matter what.

Annie is very territorial and won't allow Nip to snuggle with her. Maybe this winter will make a difference. We rarely hit freezing, but in a 100 year old transplanted farm house, with wood floors, it gets uncomfortable for me lol. Even if it reaches 60 outside, the house struggles to hit that inside, and I'm a wimp wearing layers - even layered socks!

You might make the news.

Around these parts, it can get as low as -20F in Winter. So, if it makes it to +14F, Purfleet likes to check things out.

The thought of anything negative, temperature wise, makes me shiver to my bones! My newfound intolerance for extreme heat has not yet morphed into a tolerance for extreme cold. Burr, no! And bless your tough, curious kitty.

And that is a lovely sunroom they have there.

Thank you Shockwave for the bird/fish video; thanks BR for the lovely photo of your furbabies and sunroom!

Have a nice weekend!

and has not returned it to my view. She did discover a missing shoe, but it's not great for winter mud/snow. I will be unhappy about replacing winter boots, I liked that pair.

at the number of dogs in my neighborhood who come up to me like I'm the best person ever and they are starving for affection, and yet I know they receive near-constant attention by their moms and dads.
