Human brain, with ability to climb anything I wanted and be able to go naked without scaring half the world? Woohoo! Not to mention that chimp don't really have to DO anything if they can stay away from captivity. But since I would have the brain of a human, I could figure out how. (one hopes.)
I chose to have the brain of a chimp. Here's why. I would never have to deal with this whole being responsible crap ever again. People would treat me like crap, but hey, I'm a fricken monkey. I don't care! I'd be driven by instinct back into the jungles and forest where I could like a happy simple monkey life.
The other way around, I'd feel the need to be loved on a deeper level, to communicate, to be intimate, but I'd never be able to with the body of a chimp. Ignorance is bliss.
i prefer the brain of a chimp. When you realize you are a human being, you start to worry about a lot of things. And in fact, we are responsable of destroying the planet. Even if you are some crazy ecologist , just using water the way we use it to shower, or having electronic devices for multiple purposes, etc shows how we are harming the planet. But, when you are an animal, you live and thats all. You dont worry about the destruction of your planet or if you harm it. You dont worry about leaving your family in pain if you die. In fact, you dont worry about anything, because the concept of "worrying about something" its only aplicable to thinking beings as humans. The only thing your instinct knows is how to survive. And if you face death is just part of your life. Having the brain of a chimp makes our life a lot easier. So id go for that one. Sorry for my english
