    Off Topic - incredible, but true - monkey revenge

    Hi,

    This has nothing to do with G-Shocks, but I thought I'd share this news item with the group.
    You gotta check out the photos in the story...priceless!
    Gives new meaning to the old saying "monkey see, monkey do".


    This makes me wonder, which G-shock model could hold up the best against such "monkey business"?



    Performing monkeys attack trainer in China
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/3816785/Performing-monkeys-attack-trainer-in-China.html

    When one of the monkeys refused to ride on a child's bicycle in a street performance in Sizhou, in eastern China, their owner beat it with a stick.

    Although they were tied to the man with ropes attached to their collars, the monkeys appear to have decided to fight back.

    The two animals came to the defence of the third monkey, grabbing the stick from the man, pulling on his ear and biting his head.

    When he dropped his cane, one monkey snatched it up and began beating the trainer on the head until he broke the stick, witnesses said.

    glad they did that. who has the right to take wild non-endangered animals and force them into slavery? no one.

    Exactly...

    ...can't help but see the analogy to human enslavement and global tyranny.

    It's because he was wearing that fake Riseman. This would not have happened if the trainer bought a genuine one.

    I like the fact that the monkey broke the stick on this bastard's head.

    In fairness, monkeys have an advantage with trees. On the evolutionary Hanger Lane gyratory system they'd be useless.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
