Rather strange, that  rebuilt ancient  Cheddar Man skull on TV t'other day. With the climate as it is, how/why did our ancestors develop that brown/black skin? Interesting, anyway.
I did end up bingeing on that REQUIEM chiller, but it turned out to be pretty uninteresting, in the end. I'd had higher expectations for it. I still think the soundtrack was  nice and eerie, though. That's what made the original EXORCIST and ALIEN films so scary, I reckon, even more than gruesome images.
I'm waiting in for the plumber to clear  out the revolting bathroom sink again. I've lived here for over 30 years, and it's always been like this. Every few months,the pipe clogs up with thick, black mud-or something. It stinks, and has got to be quite unhealthy. WTF? They always say that the whole building would have to be taken apart, all the way down to sort it out.  I have to brush my teeth in the kitchen. Me no like. I've tried all manner of products, etc.
Later: He finally arrived after 3, and sais it would be best to remove the pedastal, but it was stuck on too tight. He just used the super-plunger  thing, and  that was that. I guess I'll have to carry on using the kitchen sink, and call them out again in a couple of months.
I'm feeling quite sick and shivery, now, as well. I'm probably poisoned by some  stinky black mud goo.
I am longing fpr pizza and today is indeed pizza day, in the US anyway, but I ain't got none

Well, our ancestors came straight from Africa, so the paleness would have been a mutation taking thousands of years to arrive.

The scientist bods were also saying that it wasn't until the advent of farming that pale skin in northern hemispheres was needed. Prior to farming, our ancestors would have got all their vitamin D via their diet, so being paler would have given no advantage at all, even far north.

Yeah, I knew we were all from Africa to start with, but it seemed to me that paler skin tone in cooler climes would have set in sooner. Of course, I know totally F-all about this sort of thing. I was always inept when it came to the sciences. Just gormlessly speculatin'...
Gotta say that Mr Cheddar and vagr have definitely got some genetic linkage going there. Pretty impressive.
