Here's my piece for the theme: SPACE. If you look it up, it turns out that NASA apparently had quite an issue getting their space monkeys to survive the trip mainly because of parachute issues. Parachute issues! You'd think they would have tried it out on watermelons first if they were trying to work out the parachute bugs. So I'm sure the chimps (or rather rhesus monkeys) would have turned down the offer given the track record, had they been given the chance.
