Monkeys love home theater too, folks, no mistake about that.
But here’s the funny thing–apparently, PETA’s up in arms about a group of monkeys who are currently the test subjects of a NASA experiment involving radiation. Here’s a bit from The Salt Lake Tribune describing it:
Greger drills holes into monkeys’ heads, places microelectrodes on their brains and deprives them of water to coerce them to “cooperate” in his experiments. They spend their lives in tiny cages and are driven insane by the traumatic laboratory conditions. But Greger defends all of this by boasting that the monkeys used in his experiments have plenty of toys and a Netflix account.
Say what you will about the whole issue of animal testing and animal cruelty. We’re not here for that. We’re here for home theater news, and one thing is clear–the monkeys in Greger’s test have one.
So what’s your call? Is it monkey abuse if they have a Netflix account? Do they decide what’s in their queue? Can they reorder? Is it full of monkey movies? Will Netflix gain subscribers if they change their slogan to “Netflix: Abused Monkeys Love Us. So Will You.”? Many questions, and as yet, few answers.
