    Teach the monkeys to build a casino so they will not bother with the bananas anymore

    Soon, one monkey is taken out, and another put in. Of course, the new monkey reached for the bananas, the others began to whack him furiously.

    This let the new monkey know he's not supposed to go for the bananas.

    Soon, another monkey is taken out and a new one placed in. Similarly the scenario reenacted. The new monkey got whack by 9 of the monkeys, of which included the not-so-new monkey that just joined in even though it didn't understand why the need to whack the new monkey.

    Everything was repeated, and soon the room held 10 monkeys that whacks any monkey that tries to reach for the banana. No monkey ever knew the reason to why they should do it. They just do.



    And everyday in my office I see a new monkey reaching for the banana. Sigh.
    One of the 10 monkeys get so frustrated and instead of trying to reach the banana he just post a thread in CS. He'll soon be removed from the room, only to be put inside another room to replace another monkeys and repeat the cycle again
