Her Mother Was a Neanderthal. Her Dad Was Not
We’ve never had a paternity case like this before. Scientists have discovered the first known ancient human relative whose parents came from two different parts of the human family tree. The mother, a Neanderthal. The father, a Denisovan—a mysterious hominin we still don’t know much about (today, modern humans are the only surviving type of hominin).

Their child was a 13-year-old girl who lived about 90,000 years ago. Scientists discovered her mixed parentage by analyzing DNA in her finger bone. The discovery adds to a growing body of evidence that different groups of ancient hominins interbred with each other—not just once, but many times.

Watch: Utah Restocks Lakes with Fish Using Airplane. Craziest Thing You’ll See Today.
In 1956 the state started dropping fish from the sky into these beautiful mountain fisheries because in some cases it was the only way to reach the lakes.
Video in the linked story of airborne fishies.

Scientists Have Found Secret Tunnels Between The Skull And The Brain
Did you know you have tiny tunnels in your head? That's OK, no one else did either until recently! But that's exactly what a team of medical researchers have just found in mice and humans - tiny channels that connect skull bone marrow to the lining of the brain.

I’ve been biting my tongue, but somebody has to say it!

See, this is why we don’t trust scientists.
I bet there’s not one chance in a million that personal experience would confirm this finding.

Everyone knows that fathers are Neanderthals and mother’s are not!
