Call me when it's so hot in the cave they have to strip down to bikinis.

I love the idea of spelunking.  The practice of spelunking would turn me into a melting, screaming mess.  More power to those young women.

Still so much to learn and find and explore.  Very cool.

I went to Mammoth Cave, which is all nice and smoothed with walkways and stairs.  It was neat.
We ran into the wild cave tour half-way through.  They were crawling out of a hole in the floor next to the path that didn't look like it was wide enough for my shoulders to fit through.

NOPE.

I'm 6'5" tall, with massive hands that can crush walnuts. I'd make a horrible dentist.

SONY. Because caucasians are just too damn tall.

There is nothing that I don't find awesome about this. Fascinating expedition that will hopefully lead to further understanding of human evolution being done in just about the most badass way possible by female scientists because they are pretty much the only ones who can.

Awesome! :)

Is it weird that I find the real-deal mud-encrusted, hardhat-wearing, hiking shoes and functional clothes look of the real archaeologists far more attractive than I find the "sexy archaeologist" costumes?

Meh. Women can't be good archeologists. They're not tall enough!

I think we all know the truth.  Those ladies only signed up because they think they're going to find Brendan Fraser.

Not at all. The magic of photoshop, makeup, and lighting can make almost any girl pants-shreddingly attractive. But if they're still hot out in the field covered in dirt, you know it's the real deal.

I can't even get it up for most porn these days, much less the fake lesbians with plastic tits rubbing dildos between their cleavage that seems to be the norm.

"Journey to the Center of the Earth" came out in 2008. I think that's what was being referenced.

Obviously this thread has been invaded by Homo erectus.

Come on guys.  Is there not an Emma Watson thread for those who want to drool over bodies of women.   She is technically legal now.  (Too bad this thread probably could not get greenlighted without sexual innuendo.)

Meanwhile we have some smart women working hard to increase human knowledge on a find that will be discussed for a very long time. And for the first time ever, we get to know what is happening almost immediately instead of learning about it years later when they decide to publish.

Because sexy is more than a pretty face and what the woman is wearing.

Absolutely.

And this is also one of the many awesome things about this exhibition (and hopefully a trend we'll see continue).
