    I always knew there was something odd about the French. Knuckle-dragging Neanderthals!
    Am I being specist?

    Depending on your point of view, the percentage is about 1/3.

    Why is this in the PRSI thread? We can't have a civil discussion about genetics?:mad:

    Oh, we're Neandrethals. Sorry, still trying to grasp the concept. Carry on.;)

    I wonder if God considers sex outside your species to be an abomination...

    Remember, none of this happened. Eve was created out of Adam's rib 5000 years ago and saying otherwise is just a giant conspiracy founded by SATAN to turn you away from the way of the shoe (or is it the gourd).

    Not at all, especially since current taxonomy places Neanderthals in the same species as modern humans....

    So I'm being sub-specist, then? Or maybe their knuckles really did tend to drag in which case I'm simply being descriptive.

    I'm sure there's a chat up line in their somewhere...
    "Hi I'm not looking for gene flow, I'd just like to increase your fine glow."

    I'll keep looking

    Remember cavemen were also responsible for the paintings at Lascaux, Altamira and more than 300 other sites.

    It's an American pop-culture reference to a series of insurance commercials.
