  1. What Christmas movies are you watching?

    My wife and I start the season slow with films that are tangental to Christmas, LA Confidential and Die Hard don't make this list (a little raw for Christmas fun), but Little Women, The Thin Man, The...

    With something this stunning I think the best course of action is to await confirmation.

    While this is getting off the point, I'm fascinated by the idealization of the mother in the late 19th/early 20th centuries. And this was a two-way street . . . Douglas MacArthur's mother took an...

    I'm old enough that I want to hear the older voices singing these Christmas songs. Also Leroy Anderson! His Sleigh Ride is infectious!

    I always loved this, and the opera Prince Igor from which they came! And . . . the musical Kismet which uses these themes. I am, slowly, trying to learn to play the piano (at an advanced age) and my...

    Seems like some humble brags going on here. Doesn't anyone have any negative characteristics to share? Me, my problem is, I care too much . . .

    Easteuropid: While I don't like the idea of being "domesticated," despite the fact that my wife would say I was, as used here it means willing and able to live together in peace. I find it hard to...

    Angela: I can only guess (thinking out loud here) that the driver had to do with the consequences of aggressive behavior in different eras. During the Paleolithic over aggressive behavior might have...

    Perhaps my information is out of date, but I thought hg F was a descendant of CF, not C, and that C and F were sibling clades. Not a big point, but since CF is only inferred can we be certain it is...

    Tamakore: I agree with your comments, but I think we should keep separate those physiological changes that have occurred evolutionarily (is that a word?) over a great span of years and the behavioral...

    I must be in an ornery mood, I just made an even nastier riposte to PaterKeklos. I think I’ll grab a cup of coffee and calm down.

    Navy fighters , F-4 and F-14, seven cruises in harms way, so I’m not shy, but I don’t accept nasty ad hominem attacks. BTW, my father and father-in-law are both career military. One son is an Army...

    Ailchu: Don't assume (but didn't I just say that in my comment above?). I don't mean to be strident, but you hit a nerve. Now, I'm going to get on a soapbox:

    You said "In the past church made a...

    Pater, okay. I was afraid you were going down the trail that "we Caucasians are better than anyone because we're G2a." I'm glad to see that I was wrong.

    I don't know what to make of the Nature...

    Pater, I think you're agreeing with me. I do not dispute that Caucasians may share physical traits and may be disproportionally MMA type fighters, but that is because they share a basic Caucasian...

    Well, I'm G2a-Z726 and I'm no fighter. I'm the tall skinny guy who uses humor to try to defuse the situation.

    And . . . since your Y-DNA only represents a very small fraction of your biological...

    My own data on the subject . . . Just a couple of years ago I found a cousin (same YDNA) in England via DNA test and paper research. We share a most recent common ancestor who was born c1600. That’s...

    I live in Rancho Bernardo which is a little more conservative (we’re all geezers here), but don’t expect CA to go Republican any time soon.

    Didn't Jane Goodall show that chimps made war? I believe she saw this when a large chimp group broke in two, followed by the larger group attacking, and killing some number of the smaller group.

    I suppose my disappointment with this map/article is that I find this a fascinating subject and they have demeaned it somehow by making it about modern politics (at least in my view). I mean, isn't...
