2. It's merely the nature of homo sapiens

We're greedy, violent, and xenophobic. We're not a very nice species, which is probably why we'll die out soon. Neanderthals, although they had less brain power, were much nicer people.

6. Can you elaborate on Neanderthals?

I'm intrigued by the statement and I'm wondering what you base it on.

16. All, or nearly all, non-Africans have Neanderthal DNA.

My DNA is 3% Neanderthal.

Ask me anything.

17. Nice to meet you, Zorra.

Ummm... do you feel 3% nicer than non-Neanderthal-DNA individuals?

And if so, could this in any way be related to Rainbow Dash's being 20% cooler?

On a more serious note, the earlier comment led me to do an iota of research, where I learned that anthropologists now think that Neanderthals were every bit as smart as Homo sapiens. Couldn't find anything related to niceness, however. No indications, for example, that Neanderthals would pay for the next Neanderthal's cup of Starbucks at the drive-thru window.

Oh my. Clearly it's time for me to get to bed here.

18. Hard to say.

I haven't been feeling myself lately.

Take my advice, never trust an anthropologist. They're always judging people they've never even met.

9. Actually, their brains were somewhat larger than ours.

They weren't any 'nicer', just .5% different.

7. I don't get bigotry

But what I really don't get is people GOING OUT OF THEIR WAY to be hurtful/nasty to other people. I get that some people are just going to be bigoted/ignorant because they don't know any better/haven't been exposed to more positive and inclusive influences but there seems to be a certain amount of people whom feel it is their almost divine duty to take action and attack people they don't like for one reason or another and will seemingly fight to the death for their "right" to do it.

13. Rock ON, uppityperson - rock on!

Amazing what a difference civility and simple decency can make - the Repukes never learned that; us Democrats need to remember it.
