A Neanderthal in his/her terrible twos would be a challenge.
But give some thought to a Neanderthal teen.
Nope, nope, nope...will not volunteer for this no matter how much money is involved. Even if I could, I’m just not that adventurous.
Humans are dangerous.
Sigh,,, why the hell not? I say lets do it. It’s no weirder than anything else going on in the last year.
If it works out, we can always enlist him as a grunt in the USMC. He might really be happy there.
I have a much younger brother like that. I always thought I should have sold him to the gypsies or dropped him off with a sounder of feral pigs. He would have become the alpha of the sounder.
Why in hell do we need another Democrat?
First off, "Neanderthal man" is an oxymoron:
What Neanderthals actually looked like (6" ice-age fur coat removed for demonstration purposes...):
A face only a mother could love.
It depends on a hell of a lot of things, but I think it can be done.
So simple, a caveman could do it.
“modern humans kicked Neandertal @$$”
Actually, it is looking more and more like Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon simply merged. Europeans are 3-4 percent Neanderthal, and the Neanderthal population was one tenth or less the size of the Cro-Magnon population at the time of the ‘event’.
Paging gunner’s Mom.
Please pick up the white courtesy phone.
Naaaa,, they didn’t look anything like that. Thats some kid who has that comic book, satanic, heavy metal, death fetish idea of what they looked like.
I have a book about cavemen from the early 60s. They were just regular dudes with a little more muscle and forehead. And they were always hooking up with cro magnon chicks. So this caused conflict, and we used our brains to kill them all.
The chicks were the cause of it all.
Some people say that it’s a woomaan to blame
But I know it’s my own damn fault.
So sayeth Jimmy Buffay. :)
Neanderthal DNA is about halfway between ours and that of a chimpanzee, what do you expect them to look like?? Vendramini has basically nailed it.

This is really silly.
To my knowledge, while we may have the ability to sequence DNA, we are a looonngg way away from being able to assemble functional DNA artificially.
Haven’t done it with the simplest organisms yet, far less something as complex as a human.
Shouldn’t we start with bacteria or something?
Leads one to question how exactly Europeans acquired Neandertal DNA, especially since my understanding is that it is all essentially in the female line.
I don’t think I’ve ever been that desperate.
I'll vote no on that.
