An old one:

 

 

Chimps can learn to do this for a peanut.  Humans generally can't do it very well - if at all.  IMO, this hasn't been adequately explained, a hypothesis being that humans evolved to "lose" short term memory recall to free-up our mental resources for "higher thought" - our mental "bandwidth" would be cluttered up by the need to process and commit to memory everything we encounter, so we unconsciously evaluate, prioritise, and discard information. IOW our relatively poor memory recall is a feature, not a bug.  Could be correct, but IMO it smacks of having an anthropocentric origin.

 

Edit to add comment - the stupid human who posted this clip on Youtube couldn't even remember that chimps aren't "monkeys".

NASA Names “Rolling Stones Rock” on Mars. Hires fun animator

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

The team behind NASA's InSight lander has informally named a rock on Mars “Rolling Stones Rock” after the band.

A little larger than a golf ball, the rock appeared to have rolled about 3 feet (1 meter) on Nov. 26, 2018, propelled by InSight's retrorockets as the spacecraft touched down to study the Red Planet's deep interior. In images taken by InSight the next day, several divots in the orange-red soil can be seen trailing "Rolling Stones Rock." It's the farthest NASA has seen a rock roll while landing a spacecraft on another planet.

Why the internet breaks: Sharks!

 

Yup - the next time you get a 404 page itmigh be becuase of sharks. Seriously!

 

Apparently sharks are attracted to the magnetic field created by the high voltage carried through newer undersea cables and, thinking they’re fish, they bite them. Then, if underwater footage is anything to go by, they realise their mistake and swim away from the damage they have caused.

 

There is some good news. The cables are now largely shark-proof ...

From God's Perspective

Bo Burnham

"The books you think I wrote are way too thick.
Who needs a thousand metaphors to figure out you shouldn't be a d_ck?
And I don't watch you when you sleep.
Surprisingly I don't use my omnipotence to be a f__king creep

You're not going to heaven
Why the f__k would you think I'd ever kick it with you?
None of you are going to heaven
There's a trillion aliens cooler than you"
