Eyes too big for their bellies?

That's not because of species, I hear that is red rice yeast. Look it up its kind of interesting. Even though they eat tons of high cholesterol foods they have much lower numbers then the western world.

Their eyes are too big.  Next week it will be their feet were too big and they kept tripping over them so they became dinner.

First it was because they couldn't hunt rabbits now it's because they had huge eyes. What is next?

It makes sense... eyes too big.. too big they joined together and became one big eye... The Neands are the Cyclopes in Greek mythology!

"Since Neanderthals evolved at higher latitudes, more of the Neanderthal brain would have been dedicated to vision and body control, leaving less brain to deal with other functions like social networking..."

What? Just...what? They MAY have had larger eyeballs so that means more of their brains were devoted to vision?

Giant squid have eyeballs that dwarf ours - therefore giant squid visual centers are much larger than ours, right?

This is nonsense.
