Umm...what?

I wonder what this means to Lucy and her position in our evolutionary tree.

Lucy was 3.2 million years ago.

Maybe they will find some link betwixt them?

I think subby had too much of the blessed nectar.

I think, as adults, we can all guess Lucy's position.

Is subby suggesting it must have taken loads of beer to get humans and apes to breed?  Because that's as much sense as I can make of it.  A bit of a stretch though.

I would think that the need to get her mate a beer helped this missing link evolve into a creature that could walk on two legs.

We know that she didn't carry the beer back in her mouth (lack of mouth hands on current bipedal species) so her other legs would have evolved into what we know as hands, especially if her mate had a friend over and she had to carry two beers.

Well, that's certainly the most parsimonious interpretation.  I'll buy that.

I just had a few beers and sex with monkeys at the zoo so I'm getting a kick out of this thread.....

I thought subby was a proponent of the "a hole and a heartbeat" theory. You know, like his dad did.

/Yes, I know. Subby says heartbeat is optional.

Ah, Earth humanoid 3.5.7 edition. It did have a few bugs, like a penchant for picking its nose until causing brain damage.

They already have.  Anatomically,  A. africanus is pretty nicely intermediate between  A. afarensis and  A. sediba.  In fact, the discoverers of A. sediba make exactly that claim - that  A. sediba is descended from  A. africanus, and they also propose that it's immediately ancestral to genus  Homo.
