Wow. So it is. So if I said Dave's consequences, it would be correct, or not ?
It this an exception of some sort, or just me never noticing this ?

Yep. Exception, just for it, cause English is all sensible and shit. Dodgy

(so its consequences, as it cannot be plural.)

The human body is the result of 7 million years of independent evolution from our ape cousins... [snip]...We most likely switched to bipedal locomotion because it requires less energy than walking on all fours and because we needed our hands to carry food or tools over flat ground. An upright posture also provides less surface area for the sun to heat up.

There was a paper I read earlier this year which posited that the real evolutionary reason we started standing as hominids was because it allowed expanded lung capacity and better breathing and required less overall energy as we ran down animals in persistence hunting. We weren't very fast or strong critters compared to the big game a couple of million years ago. Social hunting and persistence probably leveled the playing field in a lot of ways.

They sure did. They live in a peaceful semi-egalitarian society and get all the ass they could ever want.

I heard it was from peeking over the tall grass, looking for tigers.

Lions. No tigers in Africa.

We've been trying to steer humanity in this direction but... something keeps happening to fuck it up.

I got news for you guys... there are times when we fuck you, just to shut you up. Don't tell anyone I told you that or I'd lose my membership or vagina or something. Dodgy

Yeah, we know this, Kim. But (and this too is a secret), we don't say we know or the girls will think we are not shutting up just so we can get some.

At the risk of losing my membership, knob or something, here's another secret... We can multi-task (but telling the fairer sex would mean that they would make us do it all the time).
