Dollars to donuts, the monkey didn't trick his buddies into thinking there was a predator nearby with money. I don't know what study you're talking about, because you didn't cite it (*hint*hint*), but Im guessing the monkey used their voice in some manner. Here's the third Google search result for ...

So then it isn't what it sounds like then? Perhaps you'd care to offer a real explanation this time around. Unless I'm wildly misunderstanding what Salandriagado means by "functional", it's a de facto monopoly as opposed to a de jure monopoly. But maybe it's better for him to explain what...

Recently I told a friend that a while back I had discovered a horde of tiny white snails in my garden. A few days later we were talking on the phone and she said that she thought she had found one of the tiny white snails on one of the plants that I had given her. She sent me a pic. It wasn't a tin...

I don't, because money is a medium to facilitate economic transactions, not a form of communication as you erroneously think it is. If you don't believe that spending money is a form of communication (transmission of information) then why did you spend so much time arguing that spending money trans...

No, I said that people value money differently depending on how much of it they have, making the cost of the "signal" when they spend their money different for each person. Here are the two questions... 1. Is spending money a costly signal? 2. Do people have an incentive to use cheap sign...

We can figure out the truth by playing a little game. You are a telecommunications company (companies are people, after all), and your one goal - the only thing you need or want to do - is making money. Up until now you couldn't make online businesses pay you for prioritization of their websites, b...

The handicap principle provides an explanation for behavioural and physical characteristics that seemingly lower a creature's fitness to survive.

That's not what you claimed. You claimed it would detract zero from your happiness or quality of life. I, too, could live without the internet. Everyone could, we did it for thousands upon thousands of years; but it would certainly detract from my happiness and quality of life. Not mine. A quick sh...

Indeed. If Cyntoia was to premeditate a murder it would make far more sense to target the person who most abused her. Kinda makes you think the prosecution was wrong to say that she premeditated killing Johnny Allen. They proved their case did they not? Getting a conviction doesn't mean that they w...

Yes, the ex-military 43 year-old man couldn't possibly have known that the 16 year-old girl he was about to rape might be scared. Because that makes sense. Just saying with the narrative of sex slave girl fighting back, killing the pimp would have made more sense then killing the John. Indeed. If C...

Oh yes? What websites do you go to? Check who owns them. Then check what websites your ISP owns, specifically if they own a competing website.

The handicap principle is about signals being made reliable by the cost the signaller incurs by making them. This manifests in a myriad of different physical and behavioural characteristics. But why are reliable signals needed in the first place? Why did you ignore the part where I explained how yo...

I don't have to make that argument until you explain why a theory regarding biological evolution would be at all applicable to explaining your own personal theory on human economic behaviour.

Because johns typically don't pay until afterwards, and by her account she killed him before he was done.

Grabbing things because the person who has enslaved, assaulted, threatened to kill, and raped you has told you to bring him money would be, for most people, instinct. "I need money from this guy who hasn't paid me. I know, lets grab his wallet and things with high street value". That does...
