Throwback

Neanderthal child

My Aunt Joan has always said I was something of a throwback, she said I was like a Viking or some other sort of big, gruff warrior type of geezer - though she always said I was a gentle giant type-thing as well. Looks like all us non-africans are to some extent according to this article I found on disinformation which discusses this article on io9 by Alasdair Wilkins.

Except that I'm a throwback to a later period in history, which can only be good I guess... unless it means that everyone else has evolved further... ahh well, at least I'm not dragging my knucles along the ground!
