Awesome reaction from the monkey on the left when he watches his buddy get rewarded with grapes and he is stuck with cucumbers.

Chill out #(removed comment) they are treated good and cared for, vaccinated and fed, ... it's not like they cut off one of it's arms to see what happened...

Anyway, they react exactly like humans would, envy is a strong emotion.

This is about a sense of fairness. Demonstrating that the concept of fairness is tens of millions of years old is not "minimal educational purposes".

Lumping these types of experiments together with "animal testing" is just hysterics.

This experiment is cruel, but not by any means the cruelest of experiments upon animals.

Oddly, one of the commenters mentioned this experiment was about envy, and another mentioned it reminded them of Occupy. Neither of these had occurred to me until I read the comments. Then I started thinking about it, and came up with this:

This is an experiment about the effects upon animals of unfairness, inequity, and lack of justice. What we're witnessing here is that for doing absolutely nothing more or nothing less than the other monkey did, the second monkey continued to be offered a better deal than the first. The monkey being offered the worse deal noticed because, well, monkeys have eyes and brains. Why wouldn't he notice that he was getting the shaft for no other reason than that the other one existed? In other words, he realized there was nothing he could do to get a better deal because, frankly, the other monkey was simply getting something good just for being WHO HE WAS.

This happens in human society every single day. :| A few monkeys are getting the lion's share of society, and the best choice of what's available, and NOT because they're making some contribution to society, but simply because of who they are.

It is the reason Occupy exists, as Occupy has made it their duty to point out the savage unfairness in the system.

As for the emotions experienced by those who watch the few monkeys that get the best of everything for nothing - I think it would be really weird if there were no reaction at all!
