The August 09 issue of Scientific American has an article on how and why the Neanderthals died out. One thing that shows up in modern humans that isn't evident in Neanderthals is division of labor among the sexes.

It's thought that Neanderthals put their females at risk by having them assist in the hunt, and this led to them being killed or injured which ultimately meant modern humans could out-breed them.

Cue feminists ranting and raving about the "sexist" study, giving feminist rhetoric instead of reason as evidence for the supposed fallacy of the study...

This makes sense. Every time I played darts with my ex she would leave a collection of nice holes in my wall below the board.

We have to be able to focus better closer up.

How else would we ever be able to see some of the mens small peens.

Looked up the article, reading it now. My work curses you for this interesting distraction.

This is only half true. There is enough evidence to suggest that women were successful at killing game. It's that the papooses kept getting snagged on trees that caused the problem.

Ain't it the truth.

Yesterday, I was looking out of my office window, over towards the high rise condo building with the pool and tanning deck.

There was a very attractive young lady tanning ABSOLUTELY TOPLESS!!!

Best day at work, EVAR! Thanks long distance visual accuity and Tasco brand binoculars!

What are you talking about. There's thousands of girls on Fark. And (according to them) they're all smart, witty, beautiful, and the best lay you'll ever have (not that they'll give it up to the likes of you).

TOP GUNS - (L to R) U.S. Air Force 1st Lt. Julie Ayres, Capt. Mary Melfi, and Capt. Tally Parham, three of the five female fighter pilots from the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing, that flew in combat missions in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from this forward-deployed air base in the Middle East, walk together down the flightline.

This is old news. Women have better peripheral vision but men can see farther. This is why he has to look down to check out her boobs but she can look him in the eye while checking out his package.

Uh, don't go there. I used that same joke on an "elite TF" and all the little hot house flowers came flooding out of TFD to stick up for her.

It was disgusting.

If you can't even see it, how would its existence even matter?

I beg to differ. Some can park cars in places that you would not even consider it possible.

Some is hardly a majority. Frankly, if we're talking about parallel parking, most people suck at it regardless of gender.

I'm still trying to figure out why women tend to do much worse at driving in reverse than men do. (Yes, that's a generalization. No, it doesn't necessarily apply to any women on Fark reading it. Like the children of Lake Wobegone, all Farkettes are above average.)

I know. :(

I was excited because I thought that it would roll over. A few of us were discussing it on TFD.

Hell, I can't afford that. Can I get a flirtatious wink for $15? Maybe a coy smile from across a crowded room before you disappear in a flurry of petticoats, never to be seen again?

LOL, I was referring to all the pics of women drivers and their cars in power lines, pools, and other various places.

Just give me the $15 and we will call it even.
