So if my brain isn’t accomplishing a lot these days, can I turn some of its proteins back into hair?
Other mammals chase better than we do and yet retain a full coat of hair/fur.
Otters, particular sea otters, along with seals, sea lions, sea elephants or whatever do no doubt much more swimming than man’s ancestor’s ever did and yet retain full-body hair, although maybe shorter, hair than some mammals.
So you think man started wearing animal pelts before he lost his hair? And he, as opposed to all others spent more time erect, making vulnerable parts more vulnerable?
Seems more males *today * would shun hairy females than the other way around.
Many other hairy species moved north without losing their hair, some no doubt growing more hair, e.g., the hairy mammoth. And the people who never left the tropical areas of Africa tend to have less hair than those who moved up to the Caucasus.
Some people don’t have bigger heads; they’re just thicker. Is how it works?
This refers to the same number of hair follicles? So evolution doesn’t care deal in a free market?
Well, my paternal grandfather was ‘Harry’, but the name was never passed down.
Actually, what I think happened was that the shower drains in those caves weren’t all that great, and they kept getting plugged up with human hair all the time. So, in order to keep the cave floors dry, parents threw all the harriest kids out to the wolves. Eventually, then, more kids had less hair; and, in fact, by the time someone invented the plumber’s friend (I forget his name), most people were already pretty naked. You think I should publish this theory? If deja.com archives the SD Message Board, I guess I already have.
