> Chimpanzees, our closest living ancestors,

New Scientist should know better than that. Very interesting article, though. The change to a calorie-dense diet is a major candidate for what made us (homo) diverge sharply from other hominids. Hunting and meat eating is one possible cause of this diet change, but chimps hunt, hunt cooperatively, and eat meat whenever they can.

Cooking is another possible source of the diet change, and chimps don't do this.

Whenhominoids first discovered pizza, their brains began to expand the landscape is dotted with pizza places for our hunter/gatherers to fetch the stuff and bring back to the caves we dwell in.

There is so much wrong-thread-posting going on today, it's ridiculous.

This is a really neat site, kickingtheground. I'm surprised some of the projects got so many responses (who has the guts to ask random strangers to hold hands and pose for a picture?).

This is great.
