Who the fuck would breed with a ginger? What was old man Homo sapiens thinking??
Perhaps old man Homo sapien was just keeping quite and praying for it to be over soon.

Hunga Bunga, I'm a Neanderthalian... ooops, I'm not a ginger, so I guess I'm actually not.

Imagine being the last Neanderthal.
Sex with as many of those pesky new humans as possible would be on my agenda...
Seems to be more or less what happened, though of course they could have been ‘raped’ by us to the point where they are but a shadow in our DNA.
Yeah, I wonder if courtship etiquette existed circa 40,000 years ago. Imagine the Bard's version of Romeo and Juliet, or a recasting of Jane Austen's description of Regency manners and morals back then.

One can only speculate, but given we are social animals my guess is there would have been even then, within our own social groups.
Indeed. Even a long as 40,000 years ago there is bound to have been awareness of the fact that there are right and wrong ways of handling such matters. :nodnod:

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton
