I know a muthafarking BIGFOOT when I see one!?!?!?

Don't bring a BIGFOOT in my home, Gus!

With my children!

I got that gene. The hair keeps growing thicker, almost everywhere, except the top of my head

I make sure to blame my parents at every opportunity, because that IS their fault

The smooth, pretty boy I used to be three decades or so ago is now the fuzz-shouldered shambling silverback of today. That shiat thickens. Everywhere. Like, on my goddamned ears.

Uhh, pretty sure we've known this since there are documented cases of people with werewolf-levels of hair, to the point that there's a documented syndrome/condition for it.   So, yeah, we still retain the genetic capability for it, even though it's not an expressed or activated gene in 99% of the population.

There was a generator mechanic in my unit during Desert Shield/Storm that was one link removed from apes. He had a full shag carpet other than from the neckline up where he had to shave and keep a regulation haircut. It was seriously like Teen Wolf, you could not see his skin underneath. He did part some of his bicep hair once to show us a tattoo that was hidden underneath.

Oh yeah. I'm a sad patchy chia pet of a human. What I can't grow on my face I grow everywhere else. I can't grow a mustache but I can comb my arms and legs with a cat brush. When I was in high school one of my unconscious fidgets was to twist my leg hair into little dredlocks while teachers droned on about quadratic equations or whatever.

I have one eyebrow hair that seems to have no length limit. I've enver just let it go past and inch and a half, but macabre curiosity is always cut short by the need to emerge into public for an errand without the locals Elephantmanning me in the street.

My mostly-Native American husband went from having a grand total of three chest hairs to being a patchy bearded beast. The hairy shoulder blades are the best part. I told him he earned his wings living with me, but he was not amused.

Humans also have genes for feathers, scales and tails.

God is just farking lazy: he never bothers to clean up after making a jerry-built botch out of his work. That's why the optic nerve runs over the retina, my eyes have "floaters" in them which are the remnants of blood vessels, and it takes six muscles to do the work of three.  Also, squid and octopods have better eyes than humans because God re-used old crap he had lying around the workshop instead of incorporating the lessons of two or three days earlier into his precious children,

Maybe some weirdos, like the kind who think Homo sapiens sapiens did not evolve from Homo sapiens and Neanderthals, proposed the Hank McCoy's among us are genuine mutants instead of just a fancy follicular phenotype?

Like, christ, who are these researchers? How did they not at least once look up cases of full-body hair coverage in the literature before they did their work?  What, did they just assume that the people who grew full coats of hair all over their bodies just spontaneously mutated a gene to do it, as Bennie pointed out?  Or did they just blow it off as an over-abundance of testosterone causing the hair growth, despite no other obvious signs of said high testosterone production?

I'm an inverse hobbit.  There's hair everywhere (except the top of my head which is thin) and my feet which are completely and utterly bare, and tiny too. It's like I stole them from a 6-year-old.

I had the opposite happen. When I was 30 I had a little bit of chest hair in the middle and a small amount of armpit hair. Now those areas are hairless. I didn't do anything to remove it.

Hey, I just tried that game last week. Not bad but I ran out of monkeys to feed to predators after only an hour or so. Some funny death scenes though.

Here's my high score for my first attempt.

Fed my first character, one of the babies, to the bird that ate its mother in the opening cinematic. Swooped down and was like "Ooh! Dessert!"

Let's be honest, the mother was an idiot. Got some food and then climbed to the highest branch it could find while those giant birds were flying around? "Oh, come on! THAT'S the family tree I have to work with?!"

My dad went relatively hairless the older he got, except for his face and head. I wish I had those genes, because whatever is happening to me is bullshiat.

The one time I went on a cruise I saw the most hirsute guy by the pool. I'm sure he was part gorilla. The amount of hair covering his body was amazing and frightening. The amusing thing was he had shaved a bald patch on his upper arm so you could see his tattoo of a bikini clad woman. If he didn't shave there I'm sure she'd look like sasquatch.
