Research: Kids Are Smarter Than Monkeys.

I like the opening of this article:

IN another case of researchers reporting the bleeding obvious, European scientists have found that children are smarter than chimpanzees.

I like it for two reasons. One, it is blatantly sarcastic. Two, they use 'bleeding' as an adjective. Great.

Even though I agree that it seems obvious now, I have two words for Will Dunham; hindsight bias:
it is the inclination to see past events as being predictable and reasonable to expect.People tend to remember their own future predictions as being more accurate than they were after the fact. People are, in effect, biased by the knowledge of what has actually happened when evaluating its likelihood.
