If man originated in Africa, why isn't it the center of modern civilization? An interesting book about what happened.

scarabic, agreed great book, shame they got rid the earlier [imho] cooler looking cover.

quonsar, I grew up eight miles from newark and can tell you there was very little that originated there. Other than lots of people who moved away as soon as they reached adulthood. In waves every few years.

Nice headline, though I fear it might give any remaining LGF spies a heart attack.

Can nothing stop them?

SARS? AIDS? Monkey Pox? Armageddon? Most likely they'll just do it themselves.

Newark may not have originated much, but it's a nice anagram.

Hey - I thought we were being overun by killer bees and Kudzu. Or was it waves of 'young republicans' ?

scarabic - I second the recommendation of "Guns, Germs and Steel". Excellent book.
