    Domestication is in some ways a process of extended infantilization. Adult dogs, for example, retain wolf puppy behaviours such as jumping up and trying to lick the faces of their owners when they...

    Yes, 30 dynasties, so a dynasty lasted about 100 years on average, but I still find it surprising, even if they selected a child not obviously flawed, that enough pharaohs were at least...

    It's surprising that pharaonic Egypt lasted for over three thousand years given the pharaohs' tradition of extreme inbreeding. This inbreeding has been confirmed by recent studies. The mummies of...

    Yes, my list could have been much longer. I mainly picked films that are stylish and visually striking, that I particularly like, but I didn't even include La Dolce Vita or 8 1/2. The Leopard, La...

    I agree that since farming began many people have chosen a non-meat diet for cultural or personal reasons without too much trouble. Culture can override genetic tendencies. It may be that humans have...

    A meat diet may clog our arteries and kill us in the long run, but by then we've usually had whatever children we were going to have anyway, so we've already passed on our meat craving genes to the...

    The suggestion that the Corded Ware of 3rd millennium BC Europe is derived from earlier cord marked pottery in East Asia is intriguing. The world's earliest pottery was found in southern China,...

    Irhoud I was one of the specimens included in the analysis (see Table 1). I suspect Chinese homo erectus was not included because it is earlier than the time period they analysed, and because Chinese...

    The interesting thing about Basque language and culture is that it's the exception that proves the rule. It seems to have an ability to withstand linguistic "steamrollers" that is unique, in Europe...

    Maybe because Taipei (and Taiwan) is dominated by non-Austronesian speaking people of Han Chinese origin who probably aren't interested in assembling a pan-Austronesian insular confederacy. Even if...
