We really need idfnl to report his score.

Smells like Bigfoot's dick!

What are your chances of surviving an intense lovemaking session with bigfoot?

Created by Oatmeal



Test is flawed. what if I get a female Bigfoot. My chances go dramatically up among other things.

If you or anyone here could get it up for a female Bigfoot, he's more of a man than I am!

The scoring suggests that Harvey might be able to.

On a more serious note, I see that studies at Oxford have re-dated the extinction of Neanderthals in Europe to a much earlier date, some thousands of years before the coming of the Moderns. In a lot of ways, that makes more sense to me than scenarios in which the Neanderthals just "faded away" before the advancing Moderns. I should have expected there would be conflict over hunting grounds, caves and other resources if the two kinds of humans had come in contact, but to the best of my knowledge, no evidence of that sort (cloven skulls, whatever) has ever been unearthed. Neanderthals and Moderns did displace each other several times in occupying the area around Israel over the millennia, and this might have provided the occasion for genetic interchange, if such indeed happened, which still seems open to question.

Also, I see that public opinion polls are running strongly against cloning a Neanderthal although I am not sure why.

More germane to this thread, I learned that some "advanced erectus" populations in Africa of the Homo heidelbergensis/Homo rhodesiensis type were pretty gigantic, massively built and over seven feet tall. Some have suggested that BFs could be descended from this stock, which lived about 300 thousand years ago. I rather doubt this as the advanced erecti seem altogether too human for that role.

Do you have a link? Sounds interesting.

Do you have a link for this as well? I seem to recall that the tallest estimate for Homo Erectus comes from Turkana Boy, extrapolating from the youngest estimate of his age at death gives a height of around 6 feet as an adult if he had survived. Most if not all other fossil remains put the average height much shorter than this.

If you do a web search on Neanderthals I think a lot of this stuff should come up.

Check the Wikipedia article on Homo rhodesiensis for the stuff about the giants. I gather there is a paleontologist in South Africa who claims to have found the remains of the giants. Rhodesiensis' European cousin Heidelbergensis is supposed to have been of average human height, about 5'8" for males, 5'2" for females, which is considerably taller than the Neanderthals, to whom Heidelbergensis is supposed to be ancestral. His African counterpart Rhodesiensis is thought to be ancestral to us Moderns.

Of course there are huge variations in height among Moderns: I believe some of the tribesmen of the Central or South Sudan average about 6'6", while not too terribly far away the pygmies of the Ituri forest are only about 4 1/2 feet tall.
