New research suggests we evolved from a primitive species of shark that lived 300 million years ago.

Telegraph said:

The primitive fish named Acanthodes bronni was the common ancestor of all jawed vertebrates on Earth including mankind, according to new research.

Why didn't she ask for cod n' chips like the rest of us?

I really hate headlines like this. People are going to read this and think that it means human evolved directly from sharks. This is exactly what they want so people will read the article, problem is, not everybody will. But then, only a moron would think we evolved directly from sharks.

"The primitive fish named Acanthodes bronni was the common ancestor of all jawed vertebrates on Earth – including mankind, according to new research.
Acanthodes, a Greek word for "spiny", existed before the split between the earliest sharks and the first bony fishes – the lineage that would eventually include human beings."

Two sentences in and you can clearly see that they don’t mean directly from sharks.
Oh, and we are apes.

Why of course - Sharkboy and Lava Girl had to come from somewhere!

IN all seriousness though, that is a long way back. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
