You're Sad Because You're A Hominid, And Also Because You're Old (And Also Because You Suck)

"A new study finds that chimpanzees and orangutans, too, often experience a mid-life crisis, suggesting the causes are inherent in primate biology and not specific to human society….

Perhaps apes feel existential despair, too, when they realize they'll never be the alpha male or female."
