Chuckle! Quite so. One could reasonably speculate that problem solving ability is associated with some manner of critical thinking. Which results a number of less than flattering comparisons.

This is interesting.

One modern theory is cranial deformation was likely performed to signify group affiliation,[22][24][25] or to demonstrate social status. Such motivations may have played a key role in Maya society,[24] aimed at creating a skull shape that is aesthetically more pleasing or associated with desirable attributes. For example, in the Nahai-speaking area of Tomman Island and the south south-western Malakulan (Australasia), a person with an elongated head is thought to be more intelligent, of higher status, and closer to the world of the spirits.[26]

Historically, there have been a number of various theories regarding the motivations for these practices.

It has also been considered possible that the practice of cranial deformation originates from an attempt to emulate those groups of the population in which elongated head shape was a natural condition. For example, Rivero and Tschudi describe a mummy containing a foetus with an elongated skull, describing it thus:

...the same formation [i.e. absence of the signs of artificial pressure] of the head presents itself in children yet unborn; and of this truth we have had convincing proof in the sight of a foetus, enclosed in the womb of a mummy of a pregnant woman, which we found in a cave of Huichay, two leagues from Tarma, and which is, at this moment, in our collection. Professor D’Outrepont, of great Celebrity in the department of obstetrics, has assured us that the foetus is one of seven months’ age. It belongs, according to a very clearly defined formation of the cranium, to the tribe of the Huancas. We present the reader with a drawing of this conclusive and interesting proof in opposition to the advocates of mechanical action as the sole and exclusive cause of the phrenological form of the Peruvian race.[28]

It's because extraterrestrials visited earth in the distant past.  Aliens visited me, and from firsthand experience, that's how they look...... they have large almond shaped, elongated heads.

Well that is just one of many descriptions of aliens, there are reptilians, and as seen here in the forum thatthere are also beams of light, arachnid and my favorite the three boobed alien women that have inspired me to do mouth stretching exercises and tying cherry stems into knots with my tongue for better flexibility.:whistle:

Aliens visited me too! They were tall blonde women, with really impressive personalities and purple eyes.

Good for party tricks. But what if those boobs are on their butts? They're not human, you know.

I met an alien once, too. But he just shouted "Exterminate" at me thirty or forty times and waggled a plunger at me. I walked down two steps and he ceased to be a problem.

Hi Kmt

That certainly does create other considerations but why would all the party favors be in the same place? One would think that am aesthetic distribution like we have would be far more advantageous and the alien women wouldn't be able to sit down to breast feed their offspring. Maybe that is why they are coming here to take advantage of our genetics.:rolleyes::whistle:
