Flamehaired Cavemen

I draw your attention to possibly the least interesting, least story-like 'story' of the day - cop this. Earth-shattering eh? Almost as exciting as Gordo's announcement that he's thinking about cutting the 30-year rule to 20 (to embarrass the Tories) and moving towards, God help us all, a Bill of Rights and Duties. You are feeling sleepy........

  2. Excellent. I believe some of them probably had dark hair too. Also fair hair, I wouldn't mind betting.

  3. as a gorgeous pouting redheaded Neanderthal, I found the following to be demeaning and offensive: 'Neanderthals were a dead-end offshoot of the human line'

  4. As another gorgeous, but not pouting, redhead I am not surprised by this story. Many of the Neanderthals distinctive characteristics were the result of adapting to extreme cold. The pale skin that accompanies red hair is supposed to be more efficient at converting sunlight into Vitamin E. We need less exposure to sun to produce the same amount, the downside being a tendency to burn.

    The story about the 30 year rule is more exciting than it appears. Paul Dacre, editor-in-chief at Associated Press, is one of the people conducting the review. Is the feral beast going soppy?
