                                                  March 26, 2003  Cartoon drawings of Neanderthals as dim-witted hulks are way off mark; the ancient hominids were as dextrous as modern humans, a new study shows.

                                                  Thats very interesting Hobo, it goes to show that perceptions can change all the time, I've never really thought of neanderthals as big hulking dimwits, they were probably as smart as homo sapien but couldn't learn how to manipulate nature the way homo sapien did.
