: : : what does it mean to ape around?

: : To ape around (and also "to monkey around") means to act in a way which shows that you don't take a situation seriously. It comes from the playful and often silly way that chimps and other apes behave.

: Sorry Alisha, I also meant to say that apes are slandered in this regard. Pamela

Pamela's quite right. The *dark secret is that history can be rewritten*, that our evolutionary past is not to be taken lightly. Apes deserve more respect.
