true but Alina to celebrate whatever the hell is so you'll see Richard Lynch Garner was born in Abingdon Tennessee is raising a large middle class family and during the Civil War is listed as a Confederate soldier at the age of fourteen hey well you know there was a tied a button during something like that would make me feel weird but you know why the late start I guess the question I pose a Yeah you know that's that's pretty late game so he was assigned to several different prisoner of war camps during the war and when the war was over he went to the Jefferson Institute in Tennessee for two years and they got jobs a school teacher a k a He married Margaret gross in eighteen seventy two just not to take the low hanging fruit it's a terrible last name that's why you looking to get married or feel as though it grows fast she grows better the county Georgia schoolteacher from eighteen seventy six to eighteen ninety drift and real estate ventures is a lot of stuff we didn't make a lot of money is a schoolteacher are all managed to keep to keep up to date with many of the hot scientific debates going and going out of time isn't on his own on the science sure sure you know yes sir one of those debates was the theory of evolution which was introduced by Charles Darwin's book On the original species in eighteen fifty nine Darwin's theory was first introduced to the public people thought it was ridiculous yet still do yeah evolution theories might need to be fair they both sound wacky with the one obvious creation yet one where everything just happen like No no no make up on the sky we came from the things that are throwing their shit eating bananas I mean like that's not great so what people posing as an evolution these are all the rage of the time newspapers and magazines with the hypothesized about primitive ape man who could still be living in unexplored parts of your votes ogre a fucking awesome if you could do that teens make shit up about how great would it be in the world now to be able to go to anytime in the world like you could just travel to go watch cavemen ah you know be spectacular yes this could watch them like love these bowls oppose this on Instagram with the eye and then the quote missing link was book is known as Cray o The Monkey Girl Mobile a crate was born in Siam in eighteen seventy six wait sorry okay member yet know I feel we've we've experienced other people from this there yet but okay so when they say the missing link there Connor The missing Link Barry link between man and monkey his wishes but this is what the color well it makes you feel better feel as this grows I mean Could Be worse You Could Be The Monkey Girl From Birth crowd was completely covered in hair which included a mane like track of hair flowing down her back from between her shoulder blades fortunately for her she was found by a side show promoter named the Great Fairy me what it means that you're going to introduce yourself a great fairy named the Great Friday I'm average Gaston High average hello mess that I've not great Bob Ney and suicidal can cause should be out we should have to actually do this was actually enough to have this for ornate yet to agree day of affected area so he took her on a tour of Europe before they headed to the US she was mostly cold the ape woman but she was advertised as Darwin's missing link people or saw her thought she was proof of Darwin's ideas like God is right between the So the right idea is validated by the wrong example thanks history at the core was with the cry from a real race of tree dwelling ape like people's weak guy and everyone just thought that sounded right yes of course could not be looking or Yeah now as far as like she's a he she is a regular purchases lady whose lady she says these kind of bummed out like well your words hurt and no I'm not I mean who knows why and look your life not be great if you covered here so Mom make the best of it yes I mean yeah well I mean look you know you are you're at the whim and mercy of this era which is lyk nobody's going to be like you've been abuse let's shave you get in a dress going to like the predator I bet I bet I mean if the Internet was around she could give out a guy was super hairy ladies right now if that of their B O my God yeah the wood with the way we've gone with what is like you are allowed to view now I mean the perfect example is quicksand porn the other day I dare not only is there a guy who's going to be into it there's a god there's many guys were going to be dying for it yet you can have a show The Bachelor hair on her show The Bachelor hair et so in the eight sorry David but I am sending without a banana tonight in the the book anomalies and curiosities of Medicine the authors noted her many qualities including her pre hence i'll feet which means she had like a monk monkeys he can grab stuff is the true she's had for shipping fee from their hair out exactly what Gigi like you can move your toes your pipe a pencil those things mean a positive it right or a little letter course she was actually not the missing link for being really honest ok she was actually a very intelligent woman who was well read and can speak many different languages who just like a monkey who just happen to suffer from advanced form of Jaipur coasts so not unlike other stories from the doll she was not exploited she performed and displayed herself on her own terms for most of her life she's free to do she please so there was sort of this blurred line between and humans at this point so so she's able to do whatever she wants kind of yet no she's not she's not like the other people we've heard it right on top where there are bank owned almost like whereas harem them to dry out a rose she is like alright let's do this let's make some cash right right so so at this point there's dispute blurred line between humans animals and our O's life changed when he visited the Cincinnati Zoological Garden in eighteen eighty four K R O was instantly inspired when he saw the monkeys jumping around in their cages like you I think we're going to find difference for a He then began to concentrate on an entirely different focus in his life studying the language and habits of eights oh boy these planning these two CD's I'm just curious play he came back to the zoo again and again and became convinced that their sounds were speech ok now it's like you wait twenty minutes like me well you probably look at monkeys and other top the age of the ride talking to each other being a parent like there's an identification yet there are a big a self taught science man he read books by Darwin Max Mueller Alfred Russel Wallace and Thomas Huxley now he was then allowed to go places where monkeys and apes were held like zoos and whatnot and study them and he then came up with his own theory that monkeys as well as other quote dumb animals can have a language of their own pay his theory was not well received and he was often ridiculed when he would try to introduce it at different scientific conferences say we go inside to recommit to be like my skin talk to each other and soak in Todd's never been to ah our ad now the end but he was not deterred he became more and more commence and he was right think of the stuff that they like now that's interesting at that convention oh yeah the Earth is hollow there's a good book here's an idea gentleman monkeys could communicate with each other just as Doctor Rex the world again to tried to put a letter form to the sounds being made by Jameson apes got he's trying to actually like the frenetic Lee spell out yet that arduous task I might be I'd be able to rewind it to say like oh a back walk while it's not great it's not a great It's so he thought that what they're saying right ideas these involve anger fear pleasure or discomfort quote The Gambia monkey has is limited the expressions he uses indicate in the case of his wants and emotions are but a few and the more I was working with the monkeys the more he thought that they've definitely had a language but he still really start to get lost in effect like you is running out of ideas the letter thing wasn't working on now and then Thomas Edison invented the wax cylinder phonograph and R L Garner realize that this new technology could be the perfect tool for him to prove his theory way you can record monk is not okay once he recorded monkeys at ones screeching because they were hungry neighbors are pretty cool I just get over the monkey screams again tonight awesome thus the Austin for bacon yeah you to shut up would you like some bacon the monkeys are going to have bacon so he records his monkey one zoo because the monkeys it's feeding time in their screeching and they takes the recording he takes the photograph were a different zoo and plays it for different monkey know who all freak the fuck yeah now he thought it meant that they were that they are also hungry folks that just being like the the other movies were right but in his mind it was like thinking hid them in the talking about followed but in the eye of the kings that ever in college I use that we would play like this record of cat sounds and a cat when I was I the the the I don't you guys to freak out but there's more cats I think they're nine deep with this field and he's in fantastic shape and while the Phils Reds have a big belly is a big cat known as people so while our own pursue try to talk to animals he gave his family fed by working as a freelance writer a lot of his articles just happen to support his ideas and establish himself as a researcher to explore his writing articles to make money but he just keeps writing then also throwing in there how awesome he is ok sounds like propaganda his writing brought him to the attention of Samuel look lor of McLaren's magazine because magazine is a monthly magazine very popular monthly magazine a monthly magazine are different of God where they're more money I guess unless you're preaching to the choir you're making monthly of monthly budget monthly monthly as the other one oh I love month to month lease gray so I got good banana times the banana time yeah I itself a popular area for its muck racking style journalism and an original fiction are as personal PR campaign have basic successful and now of the top periodicals in the country he became serve an overnight sensation for his writing explores and recording just put in the a huge campaign getting our own story to tons of newspapers and then his crazy theories about talking the monkeys became mainstream I was okay this news is real or fake news just started this election cycle wait what so it went mainstream basically because this chemical or had a bunch of power now everyday when you say like monkeys compete monkeys can talk to people we're talking monkeys to talk to people ok in eighteen ninety two he published is published his first book called the speech of monkeys his claims had absolutely no basis in science but there was sadly taken seriously by many people who were not scientists imagine how excited the like the editor must be like my god your mind works amazingly fast that all these facts yet for sure but literally is like the the ER they do different oh yeah a if if is the back to back but I was ever a birthday oh yeah it's all of the book heavily researched book the book is yes some of them if they if they make a high pitch squeal back to back this one has ever been defeated three times a surprise party for one of them having a birthday it's all in my book okay yeah open my book the scientists of the ex was saying yeah yeah huh yeah teachers I agree from what the little place I like to come unto you I know I just I I've I played a record for monkeys of other monkeys not the rock band this is confusing because there have been around I know that he's on top so the book had transcripts of his sessions of monkeys what's talking movies what are the monkeys say hey that's part of that revenue for the transcripts and about him talk and look busy putting in the monkey speak with a translation or just what they're saying secular fabric of his book No he's saying that this is with the monkeys are saying is translated the mug is falling like dew on breakfast the mug is like eggs Benedict that is correct or the monkeys talking to Joe the ones like hey well you know what life throws me later like a second stretch yet happened alright takecare so this was just a launching pad for his next step which would be to travel to Africa to study the language of monkeys in the wild and sure enough that year with Sammy him he'll make lor pay is way are all headed to Gabon a country on the west coast of Africa was the first place a European exporter had ever seen sorry exploring make a change for the old gent vs it's the first place am an Explorer who ever saw live gorilla okay that it happened just fifty years before ok by this time I was being called Professor Gardner way it was last charged and R L Garner ok so now is Professor guard eye seen sort of perplexed look like yeah he wrote a book so now you are of any professors that it is just the lake is a lot of gray been a bit of PR campaign yeah he's putting the PR profession I Okay so he and Casey now he's called himself Professor Dunn has professed a lot of crazy stuff well we'll see men can not in reality we might be talking monkeys I hit look I want that world more than anyone I may need on of years in prison of the apes old Cesar had some upside really Yeah he was a good guy he got upset because he was betrayed by man don't trust the whites in echoes of the planet to age two well first of all the monkeys to never talk to the rights they should exactly they couldn't talk to him yet don't talk to the weights yet know he's saying give us the silent treatment ok so I guess he's going he's going after right um he's the professor is the perfect RL brought all his equipment for listening to monkeys pool I'm talking to each other which included a photograph of bringing these bring a photograph and then he's got a big steel cage the cage wait wait one time the photograph was said to be quote so sensitive that they will record the slightest jungle noise okay okay done he really felt it was just the inability to record the language of monkeys that was keeping him from understanding it and I was like I got to get out in a while because maybe these babies domesticated zoo monkeys are not talking right but if I get to get out here it's like street monkeys like like just say he's sick in the show is in French basically the monkeys are what I think the league it's like to view it like it's like you're just you just listen to people talk in in like it like the way I heard I got hit the street to London late late so the idea is of those like the monkeys in the cages alike in jail and they're just not going to like talk because of the worn get the keys that allow they're just regular humans we get in the wild knew the real mug right on talking to brag yet the real Like You Talk and the branch yeah right very similar quote I expect my discoveries to be unique and startling though they are so ah so he set up a I'm a nature camp okay call for drilling I know IRL was also like most men interested in science during this time the professor a racist like most men arranged inside this time he was also races good well I'm sure he will thrive in Africa he went along with the commonly held beliefs of white superiority great eye this is all included in his writings while he was in Gabon a place where he was completely dependent on locals for everything who he thought he was better that he stood out walking around in linen clothes and a pith helmet it's soo pissed it's good so he's like leaving Fort gorilla and everyone knows is the Monkey Man is just boring linens up FH cursor on mid eighteen hundreds African hair down from heaven the end the game out of my gym at the time the Gavin II's highs in the case that were occupied with the French who for its ports sure be Gavin is that to garner hoping RL could somehow help them gain more freedom here's a guide it's not French we can talk to these French asshole they're like they're barking up there the bar get the wrong tree part of the Normandy Korea RL often found himself negotiating with the locals and French administrators in his first ventures into the water he would write all about his adventures which would be printed in make lawyers magazine and syndicated to newspapers across the US with the help of locals who would take and deep into the forest to find these jabber in creatures he would spend time among the monkeys they put down occasionally get in the cage and that's where he stayed for a walk ok he spelt I was curious about the cage the cage is for have yet to give it that was a good that's good question for him said Yeah I well I thought it may add it to make citizens to cage them if you're trying to get like it's like you create a reverse zoo he actually
