It's Right Below the Stratosphere

Want to know why we humans do the weird stuff we do? Ya' know, things like not feeling the same visceral sense of sadness and anger for a genocide happening overseas as for the cute girl we just met at the bank being killed in a car accident this morning? Or being well aware of the faults of others but rarely seeing our own?

It's all in the
Monkeysphere! Well, not all of it. Some of it is in this fascinating little piece from Reason confirming something Adam Smith wrote about 250 years ago. Anyway, I don't care how passe monkeys have become on the Internet, both of these are good, and one of them does it a lot funnier than I could.
