According to a group of anthropologists headed by Dr Brian Hare of Duke University, a decline in testosterone levels about 50,000 years ago led to the development of advanced tools and art.

Dr Hare and his colleagues argue that human society advanced when people started being nicer to each other, which entails having a little less testosterone in action

“If prehistoric people began living closer together and passing down new technologies, they’d have to be tolerant of each other. The key to our success is the ability to cooperate and get along and learn from one another,” said Robert Cieri, a student at the University of Utah and the first author on the study published in the journal Current Anthropology.



So now instead of being accused of being lazy I can simply say that I am the defining product of civilization and hundreds of thousands of years of evolution.

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.
