Me and you and everyone we know all suck.
Via James Wolcott, who claims to suck, but could honestly suck a whole lot worse.

Kids smarter than apes -- sometimes, anyway
In one social learning test, a researcher showed the children and apes how to pop open a plastic tube to get food or a toy contained inside. The children observed and imitated the solution. Chimpanzees and orangutans, however, tried to smash open the tube or yank out the contents with their teeth.
European scientists gave a battery of cognitive tests lasting three to five hours separately to 105 2-year-old children, 106 chimpanzees and 32 orangutans over two weeks.
"Young human children who had been walking and talking for about one year, but who were still several years away from literacy and formal schooling, performed at basically an equivalent level to chimpanzees on tasks of physical cognition, but far outstripped both chimpanzees and orangutans on tasks of social cognition," they wrote in the journal Science.

But what if the apes were being taught by apes to do ape tasks?

I doubt even the scientist can hang on to a tree limb and grab small fruit.
Ape conclusion: even adult human is woefully inadequate for even for swinging from tree to tree.
