Baboons Are People Too!

I saw this yesterday on ABC's Good Morning America (I had to share, the clips only 3 minutes long).  Apparently stress-related health disorders have similar effects on baboons as they do on humans. 

Some things that went through my mind while watching this video:
  1. I'm not sure which is more interesting, the study findings or the scientist being interviewed.
  2. I think I worked in similar environments as some of the baboons.
  3. My favorite quote:  'You've got 9 hours of free time every day to devote to making somebody else just miserable.'  (I most definitely worked with a few of those baboons!)
  4. I thought all British people were born unhappy?
