Not going up
I knew it!
Last week I was diverted from my normal Friday Rant by the urge to stop and smell the flowers. And what happens? Missed the financial mini-meltdown late Thursday, which could have been a mighty trampoline for me to jump up and down on while castigating the Titans. I guess I should save happiness for my own time and stay grindstone-focused while at work as capitalism intended.
But the OTHER thing I knew was that we were part Neanderthal, as science finally figured out Friday. And, no, I don't mean just LOOK at that guy sitting next to you, or any former presidents who don't need to be named. I try to be a follow-the-evidence type of person, and up ’til last week the evidence said NO INTERBREEDING. My position all along has been that that was REALLY HARD TO BELIEVE. Modern humans and Neanderthals lived in the SAME PLACE for fifty THOUSAND years and there was no interbreeding? How about fifty thousand SECONDS? Bouquets of Iris may or may not have been involved.
And, drum roll, the scent of the Iris is............ROOT BEER! Oh, yes! Congrats to scompton1 --Tom Toles
