After seeing jdogg's animation thread, I decided to download Pivot and give it a try.

I'm new at this, but it turned out better than I had expected. If anyone wants to try to make a better one about anything, go ahead, and feel free to post the results here.

I don't remember where I downloaded Pivot, but you should be able to find it through Google. It's a simple and FREE program.

I disagree. I think it's more like why monkeys shouldn't not drive. He caused most of the damage while he was outside the car. If he had continued to drive, he would've maybe hit the guy, but the person could've easily avoided the car. After all, slow-moving cars are much easier to avoid than freefalling monkeys.

Ernie15, have you never heard the saying "Put a monkey in a cage, and he will throw feces at you. Put a monkey in a car, and he will leave his car behind as a decoy while he rents a hot air balloon, flies above the unsuspecting victim who is distracted by the car, and dive with great precision onto the aforementioned victim's head."?

Either way, I got a reply! Now I'm happy. How happy, you wonder? This happy.

Woohoo, positive feedback.

Here's an animation about the music of the person you either hate to love, or love to hate. I call it "Justin Bieber Kills!"

I'm not satisfied with the punch, though, but it'll have to do.

@MoonFairy: Thanks. And North Korea isn't far enough.

I've just made a new animation. A fight! Don't be scared, it's not as bad as it sounds.

Also, is there any way to change the title of your thread? Since I've got more than just the monkey animation I think it'd be more suitable if it was called "Why monkeys shouldn't drive, and other retarded animations"... Or maybe "iMogwai's gallery of pure awesomeness and monkeys"... Maybe I should be glad I don't know how to change it...
