My iPad tells me the video is unavailable.

However, I'll answer your thread title with another question: Wouldn't you need intelligence to make that choice?

no no no. the right question is... why apes need intelligence? because someday, human will self destruct and apes will rule the world. bwahahaha
if something can select, how cant it be intelligent? if something is intelligent, how cant it exist?

Competition isn't a great venue for intelligence. Co-operation is. You land a human on mars, I guarantee you that everyone who is able will be watching it.

This guy is just bitter because he is out of shape. I guarantee that an engineering major, or a PHD researcher is going to end up making a lot more than the vast majority of guys who were on the high school football team, or went to try and make it in Hollywood. Yeah, the guys who do make it in entertainment or sports do well, but only a very small handful of people can actually do well there. The rest do very poorly.

Intelligence make in on TV all the time: Jeopardy! has been on the air for decades.  ESPN routinely show the Spelling Bee.  Cable has a myriad of "edutainment" options.  Classic pointless rant.

I find him slightly less than amazing.

Really, this is the VERY sort of guy that makes me want no part of the label, "atheist".

His daddy was probably a preacher.

I've seen that not to be the case so many times in my life that I just can't believe it anymore.
