I got this in my email box from a friend of mine.
I found it interesting and thought I'd share it.

Start with a cage containing six monkeys.
Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it.
Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys with ice cold water.
After a while another monkey makes the attempt with same result, all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water.
Pretty soon when a monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away.
Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.
The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs.
To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the snot out of him.
After another attempt and attack, he knows not to try again.

Next, remove another of the original six monkeys and replace it with a new one.
The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked.
The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.
Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth, then the sixth.
Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked.

Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs OR even why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.
 Why not?

Because as far as they know, that is the way it has always been done around here.

Think outside the box!
Fish on, fish H8 me.
