I get all my science from the Daily Mail.

Ditto. They may have not found solution to content problems, but at least mail arrives on time

Admitting that you read the Daily Mail is like admitting that you eat your own feces.

Nope!

I shave.

Damnit.

No wonder I hate you sapiens so much.

It's probably telling that my first thought on seeing their neanderthal representation was "Hey! I think that's my cousin!"

There is a quiz in the humour book Science Made Stupid to see how much Neanderthal is in you. I'd try to find a picture to post but instead it seems the whole book (and its partner Cvltvre Made stvpid) are available to read online or download.

Sure, blame the extinct Human subspecies.  They can't fight back.

What, just because I have hair that needs to be raked and strong facial features (got a chin like the love-child of Jay Leno and Bruce Campbell, too) and how despite years of trying I have never actually broken a bone?

Counterpoint:  I do not tolerate cold well.  Happy zone is 85-105f.

Oh, hell.  I'm hirsute, I smoke, and I do have an irritated stomach.  What does that make me?  DNTFA.

/probably makes me an indigo child or whatever this years' nonsense is

According to 23andMe.com, I'm in the 90th percentile for neanderthal DNA.  I have little body hair, I've smoked maybe half a dozen cigarettes in my life, I have a stomach of iron and healthy HbA1c.

SUCK IT, DAILY FAIL.

/also suck it, scientists

I do.  I always know exactly when the microwave is going to beep without looking at it, no matter what I set the timer to.

Not everybody gets atomic breath or the ability to summon hammers other really cool super powers.

I've literally been sleeping in a bedroom that's about 45 degrees. I caught it as low as 40 degrees but that was during the day so it was colder that night. I don't take the time to check it at night--that's time I could be running for blankets. Sleep with two blankets total, and a fan on. One morning I woke up and a glass of water that had been sitting on the floor was frozen. No heat source in there at all!

Lived in Savannah for years, still can't even begin to tolerate heat.

You might be a Neanderthal then! They also have poor impulse control.

What if I do not have the stomach cramps?

That's your Neanderthal heritage manifesting itself.

Ok I skimmed the article, but a genetic propensity for smoking? REALLY?!?
