Default Diet - Eary Man


http://www.harvard-magazine.com/on-line/050465.html


Interesting to see the names in here. Probably all Harvard people. Have
to wade through a bit before you get to early man. See photo of Richard
Wrangham holding the skull of a chimpanzee and (what the heck is that?)
modern gorilla?

That, grasshopper, is the one remaining specimen of the
now extinct Pinnacanthropus. Anatomists working in the
early part of the 20th century concluded (wrongly, it turns
out) that the larger saggital crest was an ideal anchor point
for muscles working the mandible. Now we know better
--hence the name.

I have been hearing a lot about that new theory. Its gaining many new adherents. Mostly
aquatic ape defectors. I haven't heard a good name for this new theory yet. How about the
Dumbo Ape theory?

Nope, I've tried and still can't see how the subject line would give me a
hint. I have to have things bark (as in woof woof) in order for me to get
hints. Somehow I thought the older primates weren't too large in body size
and old Pinnacanthropus looks gigantic. I'll use the photo as a screen
saver until I get used to the idea.

Thanks,
Jois

C'mon, Jois, work with me here:

....and from the subject line, "Eary" man.

So finally, PINNA-canthropus.

It's a joke, Ma'am, go look in the mirror and laugh. :-)
