      Yes, what goes for potato washing
      also goes for tool wielding --
      including weaponry. The first
      primate to knock out a rival with
      a hefty stick or stone was "one
      in a hundred" too. Sorry to rain
      on such a pleasant parade, guys,
      but Sean's observation is correct
      and cogent -- humanity is just as
      likely to be destroyed as saved
      by "monkey see, monkey do."
