The Things I Learned . . .

Humans like to have two armouries. One inside the city walls, protected. And the other outside the city walls, with no doors, security features and just two incompetent weapon testers as security.

    It could be carried on a recessive gene which means that, staistically speaking, only 1 in four of your offspring would be genetically immune to the virus - and even then only if both parents carried the gene. They wouldn't be immune and would die, along with the 3 out of 4 offspring similarly lacking immunity.

A killer Ape with a glass eye, fangs and and an evil stare can be trusted when it acts stupid. Because its obviously a normal ape, and not one of the thousand of intelligent ones living in the field down the road, just pretending.

    When three humans are running away from an army of Apes, hide under a branch. Its not like any of the entire army will notice, or see their feet sticking out, or smell them, while hiding in their own home land.

      I was thinking about this. Apes are not dogs, so they cannot just smell them. There was mud and rain and whatnot. Plus, apes were too hyped to stop and look for them, they just wanted to attack the human city soon as possible.

    When your stood under a tower, in a room filled with C4 surrounding you, and it is ignited and sets of instantly, You have all the time in the world to duck under a beam, and somehow that beam will save you from the flames, the explosion, the lack of oxygen, the falling building, being crushed, smoke, dust debris - everything. And then, after all the destruction you will not be blocked in, your legs will not be crushed - you can just climb out and walk outside.

    Apes know how to ride a horse, and make it jump through a wall of fire. And neither the horse or the monkeys hair will catch alight. Which makes it a pretty useless wall then.

          The apes didn't beat the bear, they killed her. One was distracting it and one killed it from the back. These apes rule the world - i am sure they can kill a bear.

            Apes, not monkies. Chimpanzees certainly do eat meat - they hunt colobus monkies and eat their meat with relish.

                An ape can know instinctively how to turn off a guns safety, load a magazine chamber, know which way to point it and fire it. Without the need of any training whatsoever.

                Apes can apparently multiply in the hundreds. There were only a few intelligent Gorillas ten years ago, and now they seem to number in the thousand.

                Apes can talk. But prefer to use sign language, unless they are locked up in a cage, in which they suddenly develop the ability to communicate telepathically.

                Restarting a dam's electricity supply took up half the movie and resulted in several characters deaths. All so that one person could look at photos on his ipad. That was its only purpose and was never mentioned again in the second half of the film because it served no further use.

                A defensive concrete wall meant to keep back an entire army of Apes, will crumble to pieces with just a little tap from the front of a tank. It doesn't meed to drive through it, it doesn't need to fire its shells. Just a little tap as it rolls to a complete stop will bring the wall down.

                  An Ape (Kage) can shoot another Ape (Ceasar) and no-one will respond to the gun shot, no-one will check to see if there leader has survived, no-one will even look for the body to bury their King. A son will not even care to check on his fathers condition.

                  When your in the woods, working on a dam to restart electricity, and you go wondering into the Ape camp and see an ill ape. The human will have antibiotics on her, as ignoring the dystopian Earth factor. Thats the kind of stuff you just carry around with you.

                  When an army of Apes is approaching on horseback, use your machine guns against them. Don't even bother using the rocket launcher while there all together, wait until they have spread apart and then shoot a wrecked bus instead of the enemy.

                    If you have a tank and you drive it into the middle of an enemy stampede, don't bother shooting the main cannon, and why not keep the top hatch open for an Ape to climb on top and get inside.

                      In a dystopian future, you test that a gun works by shooting down a tunnel, at a car. You should fire an entire clip of bullets with each gun, because ammo is in abundance. And you don't have to worry about blowing up the car, and you don't need to wear ear protection, as the sound of continuous gunfire in a tunnel cant be that loud... Can it?

                        When the human leader says 'sound the alarm' to warn the other humans of the impending Ape invasion. He was only joking, as was proven by the fact that no alarm was ever seen or heard.

                        When you've been shot and need a place to go, choose the house you grew up in. Rather than the animal sanctuary with medical supplies, a vets, a hospital or even a chemists. Then don't even bother searching the house for medical supplies that you need, when you can go into the middle of enemy territory and search there instead.

                          A four wheel jeep will always keep working, even though there has been no electricity for ten years, and therefore unlikely for them to have petrol that can last that long either. It must run on happy thoughts.

                          Many different ape species can use the same treatment and become equally smart. Also, they raise horses when there are cars that seem to have either abundant fuel or run on air.

                              Remember that asshole that was too trigger happy and accidentally shot an ape? Bring him along with your party to peacefully repair the power plant in the apes' territory. What's the worse that could happen? Did I also mention he still doesn't trust apes?

                              If someone just assassinated Caesar, the assassin would most likely leave their weapon and hat so someone can find it and finger exactly whose to blame. I thought apes were smart now.

                                  When you go to war because your leader was killed, don't bother stopping when you find out he's alive after all.

                                        Bring the trigger happy asshole who apparently is the only one able to fix the dam, but leave him in the car and repair the damn dam by yourself, without any help from the aforementioned asshole...

                                          Nobody misses the asshole, just forget him like he didn't exist at all.

                                            It's all right for an ape to kill another ape, as long as says you are not ape beforehand.

                                              The apes become that smart, they don't need training for guns, target practicing. They also become expert in battle tactics. Did I mention they're smart?

                                                The tank which was going into apes' ranks, will magically change its course into the human fortifications only after an ape jumps and kills the driver.

                                                  It's a good idea to use all of your fuel (which lasted at least 10 years in barrels and whatnot) and then look for another power source. Also a good idea to blow up whatever fuel barrels you are left with a rocket launcher during ape attack.

                                                    If Koba fell directly at the bottom, he'd surely die. Since they throw his CGI ass on the crane beam and he fell down with the beam, I bet he'll survive for the next movie.

                                                      Smart apes are able to breed and train horses in a dense forest. They probably made the stables on the trees. They also do not need a saddle to ride the horses but a harness is needed when they stand up on the horse and fire two rifles simultaneously, Rambo style!

                                                        Nasty open wounds caused by bear claws do not have any effects on a smart ape's heath at all. There will be no infections whatsoever because the bear was cgi and everybody know cgi bears wash and disinfect their claws every morning.

                                                          When you're hiding out from a bunch of apes who are scouring the city looking for humans, sit outside and draw on the front porch. Hell, have a meeting!

                                                            Light from a diesel generator is fundamentally different to that powered by hydroelectricity. It is, for instance, invisible to apes. That is why the apes can see San Francisco lit up like an amusement park from their lair after the dam is repaired, but could not see if beforehand - even though it was still illuminated.
