Neanderthals’ bigger eyes and bodies meant they had less brain space to dedicate to social networking, which may explain why they died out and Homo sapiens conquered the planet, according to a new study. -- Agence France-Presse, March 12, 2013
OccipitalPunny: I don’t get it.
NeanderYall: Don’t get what?
OccipitalPunny: Why the humans don’t follow me back when I follow them.
NeanderYall: Oh not this again.
OccipitalPunny: I like all their posts and re-tweet everything but they don’t follow me back. It’s like I’m not good enough or something. Like they are so smart and we’re not.
NeanderYall: Um maybe they are? Did you see the Prezi with their new cave art? And their new totems are awesome.
OccipitalPunny: Whatever, we basically had the same totems five years ago. They just didn’t catch on because the market wasn’t ready.
NeanderYall: Uh yeah that and also the craftsmanship was maybe not so great. I mean you remember the Earth Mother figurine fiasco.
OccipitalPunny: Ugh don’t remind me. What a disaster!
NeanderYall: LOL I swear the gods are still angry with us.
OccipitalPunny: Ha yeah probably.
NeanderYall: And their collaborative hunting app is honestly pretty cool. I just wish they would release it on our operating system.
OccipitalPunny: It’s cool but the whole Ambush feature is not fair to the mammoths. What about market equilibrium? It’s like they are trying to squeeze them out.
OccipitalPunny: Anyway I’m still mad at the humans.
NeanderYall: I know. They are so full of themselves. Just because their tools are, like, way better than ours?
OccipitalPunny: Dude, our tools aren’t that bad. They get the job done!
NeanderYall: Totally. I will put our hide scraper up against theirs any day of the week.
OccipitalPunny: You know what I think is, I think the hide scraper is a sleeper product. In a couple years it will be standard. I’m telling you today.
NeanderYall: Maybe. But I gotta say I heard really good things about the new iAxe 5.
