Why does a parasitic Chestburster take the hard way out and exit through the ribs and sternum of a human thorax?

Monkeys have been trained to control a robotic arm by using their thoughts. A video shows a macaque monkey feeding itself marshmallows in a report from Nature News. Monkeys move robotic arm using brain power.
In 2003, Time Magazine reported that two rhesus monkeys with micro-electrodes in their brains could play video games by using a robotic joystick – Robo-Monkey’s Reward.
Research in brain-machine interfaces may one day allow paraplegics to use the power of thought to control prosthetic limbs and devices.
In the movie Monkey Shines (10098), a trained Rhesus monkey helps a quadriplegic man. The man’s thoughts can control the monkey … until the servant becomes the master.
