With the rise of the far right globally, I would prefer you didn't research this, regardless of what truth there may be. They will label us as "cavemen" and have as removed from the gene pool. If you do continue, brand it differently, just refer to genetic sequences and don't say Neandert...

Yes. Even Hitler wasnt "as bad as Hitler" until nine years after he took power in 1933. It wasnt until 1942 that Hitler actually sat down with the board of directors and planned the logistics of the Holocaust. On the other hand folks do go into hyperbole. A certain member of WP active year...

There is no single cause; it's insanely complicated and often multifactorial. But this is a subset of susceptibility factors that are playing a role in a wide range of folks' autism, which we happened to have inherited from hybridization from Neanderthals. Can you explain why some Aboriginals, Asia...

The above track credited to "the Cramps" was actually collected by the members of the Cramps onto a compilation album by their fav predecessors.

The actual performers were the Sixties band "the Ventures".

If it moved that fast it wouldnt stay in orbit. And would go flying off into interstellar space because that would be more than "escape velocity" from the gravity of any star. Maybe you could orbit VERY CLOSE to a black hole at that speed and stay in orbit. But you would be torn apart by t...

Fagen, the Artful Dodger, and Bill Sykes, I would believe.

But surely not David Copperfield. 8O

But even back in the day madison ave measured cigarettes in metric. Regular non filter Lucky Strikes and Camels were 70 MM. King Sized cigarettes were 85 mm. Then in the late Sixties Benson and Hedges introduced the 100 mm cigarette. https://youtu.be/YVsDeNN1MaE https://youtu.be/YVsDeNN1MaE Then a c...

That is curious. The U.S. always had money that was ...essentially...metric in concept since we broke from Britain and their cumbersome system of money. But then Britain switched from Imperial to metric in everything else like over night. And we still use their imperial system.

Not impossible. But hard to prove. Or to disprove. Autism is probably mostly genetic. But its not like hemophelia, or sickle cell anemia. A descrete simple condition caused by one, or a few, genes, that can be easily tracked back to ancestors. Sickle cell, for example, is easily traceable to having ...

The biggest issue IMHO is that in that region up until recently they were only diagnosing those with severe Autism, in Croatia only in the last 10 years is it possible to get a diagnosis of high-functioning autism. There are centres for Autism, but they are for those what they call these days level...

Who, or what, is "rdos"? Ive actually run across that word before in connection with anthropology. the Swedish dude: https://www.rdos.net/eng/ Yes. An independent researcher. Non scientist. Though he seems well informed. That red haired Neanderthal picture made quite a splash on WP some y...

You may be an intellectual if: • Someone mentions the name "David Copperfield" and all you can think of is the Charles Dickens novel of the same name. ;) It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times?!?! The joke used to be "if you heard the 'William Tell Overture' by Rossini ...

Most Americans rarely think about cities of former Yugoslavia. So ..in this US dominated site you probably wont find anyone who either ...strongly agrees, nor anyone who strongly disagrees with you...about the primacy of any particular city there. And here we come to the root cause. The American-do...

Eventually someone's going to respond with deadly force to the whales attacking their vessel and I won't blame them at all. I don't think that would be wise. It don't think it's wise for the whales, but the wisest course of action isn't always the one that occurs. The moment they either hurt someon...
