Accuracy demands accuracy. 

LOL!  Did you really think you had to remind me we all came from Africa?  I've been studying general and human evolution for 50 years now.  I dare say I could answer most any question you have. 

On the Planet Of The Apes, I am a human.

You can't handle the truth! - Jack Nicholson character

If you are human, then you would be mute and pre-technological. And mostly naked.

Yes ... remind you of Africa.  But you assume, anyone to the Right of Mao is a KKK member.  Yankee Doodle.

Are you taking any medications?

I am reminded of a short sci-fi story.  The world ended and a bunch of robots were wandering around debating (logically of course) about who should be in charge.  Then they came across a decrepit starving human who demanded "FOOD" and they all immediately said "Yes Sir"!

A better story (I think it was in Reader's Digest 30 years ago).  Post apocalypse.  Robot Tokyo Disneyland gets reactivated by a random electrical event.  The Mickey Mouse and Goofy robots reactivate and start wandering around looking for something to do.  Being close to China, the Mickey Mouse robot is radical and the Goofy robot is traditional.  In the end they run into some cavemen, and Mikey starts spouting Marxist nonsense.  The cavemen demolish him.  Goofy however seems less annoying and actually wants to do something useful, rather than spout ideology.  They decide to keep him.

Every dog has his day.  I always laughed that Goofy and Pluto were both dogs and few saw the contradiction between the two.  One a bipedal human-like one and the other not.
