Neanderthals Smart, Savvy, Still Dead
Extinction: it's not just for the dumb. Let this be a lesson to all of us.
Britain's last Neanderthals had sophisticated weapons and lived in strategic spots, demonstrating impressive command of their territory.
So, next time somebody calls you a Neaderthal, you can take comfort in the fact that they were "in complete command of both landscape and natural raw materials with a flourishing technology"... right before they collectively tripped on a banana peel, lost balance, windmilled their arms, and fell smack, face-down, into oblivion.
