The Bajau people are facinating. 

I watched a documentary recently on thier lives. Thier traditional economic system is very interesting.

Every villager is granted a sweet potato seed when they are old enough and it is up to how hard they work or don't as to how they survive. 

Elders in the village do anual trips to nieghbouring islands to forge friendships in order to give aide or recieve it in times of need.

It is quite socialist, a little bit brutal, but was effective for a very long time before we brought tourism and a high value dollar to thier doorstep.

Descendants of the Atlantians that were able to escape when Atlantis sunk?

 

Interesting about the spleen, but if they only have normal-sized lungs, I'd think more is going on.

yeah I know that with training and work you can greatly increase your ability to hold your breath but these folks are really way better than just that. I wonder what percentage the spleen increase adds to the time in itself.

Would this be considered evidence for evolution? As they have adapted to their extreme environment for free deep sea diving.
