Humans Vs Simians

Team of apes vs team of humans on the field. Bungston's idea.

Bungston had suggested chimp vs man baseball which might be problematic but I loved the general idea which is to have some sport specifically designed to be evenly matched for very strong animals that can swing from trees going against weaker animals that are a lot smarter.

Maybe some kind of obstacle course? Contact sports are out. Wonder how chimps would do playing soccer hitting the ball with their hands? (football) They can work out trajectories pretty well with the swinging from branches thing. Maybe if you trained them from birth? Both humans and apes can throw things.

Of course maybe I'm overestimating them. They might just reach into the back of their uniforms, pull out a handful of feces and throw it at the opposing team.

The chimps might even be worse. <--- (funny time humor jokes)

       They do quite well at beating humans at working memory

       Something completely out of left field: side-walk checkers, with really heavy playing pieces. Do it as a speed game. Heavy pieces dis-advantage the human, but complexities of play dis-advantage ape.

       We should just call ourselves himians.   

       //Human's//   

       Oh you've got to be kidding me, I did not do that.   

       Thanks Max. Have know idea what I was thinking.

       If the chimps were familiar with the obstacle course they would smoke the humans every time.   

       Maybe those Scottish field events where they throw a large log, throw a large rock, throw a piece of metal with a handle etc.

       Yea, some kind of throwing event where accuracy counts.   

       I'm guessing they might get very good at that with a little practice.

       How does this differ from any USA vs. Canucks Ice Hockey match ? Baked, WKTE ...

       vs Simpsons ?

       8 of 7 I take offence of that. the USA is not that slow minded, and us Canadians are not that strong over all.

       Some sort of rowing event? (and what dev45 said).
