As a scientist claims modern athletes are weaklings, evidence has been forward that our male ancestors were not only faster, stronger and fitter, even their womenfolk would have wiped the floor with today's emasculated men. That's the central claim of Manthropology, a new book by Australian anthropologist Peter McAllister.
In the book, subtitled The Science Of The Inadequate Modern Male, McAllister presents evidence that pre-historic Australian Aborigines could easily have outsprinted even Usain Bolt, today's fastest man on Earth.
The basis of his findings? A set of 20,000-year-old preserved human footprints discovered in the Outback. They belonged to a party of six men, most probably chasing prey across a bed of soft mud. By carefully measuring the dimensions of the prints, scientists have calculated that the fastest of the group must have clocked a speed of 23mph. That is just a little less than the speed that Usain Bolt achieved in his 100m sprint in Berlin this August. McAllister reasons that if those ancient Aborigines were given the same advantages that Bolt had - with spiked shoes, a proper running track and intensive training regime - there's little doubt that they could have beaten today's record-holder.

WHEN DRILL SERGEANTS BECOME SCIENTISTS....
>”Are you a man? You are the sorriest, weakest specimen in the history of the human species!”
I hope you realize that this headline is going to cause a lot of men to have flashbacks to their ex-wives.
-only if you are a metrosexual liberal zero voter in a blue state...
Yeah, right. BAM!
Well, maybe so, but like...we’re prettier!
As for article...somebody cue Captain Obvious.
Junk science flag on the field.
I agree... If I have to drive to the bank and the cleaners on the same day, I need a nap!
Duh. Life was much harder back then and demanded greater physical ability. And this scientist has just now discovered that? LOL!
Perhaps, but I have a REALLY COOL WARDROBE!
(puts down glass of chardonnay, sticks out tongue.)
Further study has revealed that this man was being chased by the five guys who were carrying tar and feathers. The runner had MOTIVATION.
My ancestors had more muscles. I have more brains. I win.
To many feminized liberal men think they are the model for what it takes to be a man. Sensitive, wine sipping snobs, socker fans, yetta, yetta, yetta!
You get the picture!
John Wayne they will NEVER be.
GINA: Kiss me right in front of him.
JERRY: I cant. What if he wakes up?
GINA: A man is lying here unconscious and youre afraid of him? What kind of a man are you?
JERRY: A man who respects a good comma.
We sit on our assess and invent thing like unmanned Predators so we don’t HAVE to run.
Tell that to Usain Bolt
