A good update on homo erectus.

A good update on homo erectus.

Erectus seems to be getting some love now. It is being talked about here like it is more human than the subhuman apeman, orc, or troll fantasies seen in popular culture.

I remember Valerius Geist saying its first impulse would be to eat you. What evidence he had for that comment, I forget.

the 6-foot-wide horns of an extinct buffalo species (the colorfully misnamed “monstrous sheep,” Pelorovis oldowayensis)

“Monstrous sheep”.

This was amusing.

That beastie would get Tom McIntrye revved up, if seen on the hoof.
