    Both misguided and false. Never mind the fact that such experiment would have PETA members storming the lab to save the monkeys, the problem is that something like that would never happen and it wouldn’t mean what they imply it’d mean. First off, if you’re ever seen a monkey climb a ladder you’d know the little devil will be up and down the latter before the first drop of cold water touched the other guys.

    I see this as an argument for following traditional wisdom, not against.
