A Phrase I'm Trying to Spread Around

Postby TyrannusRex » Sat Nov 05, 2016 10:14 am

This all started with my father.
Given his appearance, behavior, and German ancestry, he likes to joke that he must be part Neanderthal.
That got me thinking about our hominid ancestors, and I just so happened to think of one of the most famous ones that never was: Eoanthropus dawsoni, otherwise known as Piltdown Man.
Now, I just say "you've got Piltdown in you" to tell someone they're full of shit. :D :lol:

well Eurasians did inter breed with neanderthals, so much so that it drove neanderthals to extinction, so a lot of of people from Europe, China and the Americas (cus the siberian migration) your dad could have a lot of neanderthal genes, tho the people with the most neanderthal genes seem to come from and area of Spain, and the lowest being in Africans and Native Australians cus, they have 0 neanderthal
