    Off The Wall Hey Mike The New York Times just published a 27-point guide on what it means to be a “Modern Man.”…/m…/27-ways-to-be-a-modern-man.html… As someone widely regarded as a “Man’s Man,” I’d love to get your take. (Personally, I’m not sure what a “Man’s Man” is, but my wife assures me that you are one.) Don Philips Hi Don I don’t know what a “Man’s Man” is either, or if I am one, but I’m not inclined to argue with another man’s wife. However, I did read the Times piece, and I can tell you with some certainty that...

    Here is their leader... There's a recent article in the "Men's Style" section of the New York Times titled 27 Ways to Be a Modern Man.You should never judge a book by its cover, except for now. This is as bad as you'd imagine. Maybe worse. I won't list all 27, just the worst five, with comment. You can see all 27 here and I recommend you do, because it was extremely difficult to pick the worst five. 1. When the modern man buys shoes for his spouse, he doesn’t have to ask her sister for the size. And he...

    “The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will….The modern man cries. He cries often.” What will the modern man do when the Islamic State threat that he has ignored, denied, and dismissed as “Islamophobia” for so many years becomes undeniable reality staring him in the face? He will cry. He will cry often.

    It appeared to be one of archaeology's most sensational finds. The skull fragment discovered in a peat bog near Hamburg was more than 36,000 years old - and was the vital missing link between modern humans and Neanderthals. This, at least, is what Professor Reiner Protsch von Zieten - a distinguished, cigar-smoking German anthropologist - told his scientific colleagues, to global acclaim, after being invited to date the extremely rare skull. However, the professor's 30-year-old academic career has now ended in disgrace after the revelation that he systematically falsified the dates on this and numerous other "stone age" relics. Yesterday...

    We beat them at evolution. But what about fisticuffs? A team of archaeologists, paleoanthropologists, and paleoartists has created a more accurate Neanderthal reconstruction, based on a nearly complete skeleton discovered in France more than 100 years ago. The La Ferrassie Neanderthal man was short but stocky. If a modern man came nose-to-nose with a Neanderthal, could he take him in a fight?

    Modern man and Neanderthals had sex across the species barrier, according to leading geneticist Professor Svante Paabo.Professor Paabo, who is director of genetics at the renowned Max Planck Institution for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, made the claim at a conference in the Cold Springs Laboratory in New York. But Prof Paabo said he was unclear if the couplings had led to children, of if they were capable of producing offspring. "What I'm really interested in is, did we have children back then and did those children contribute to our variation today?" he said in an article in The Sunday Times....

    1. Murder, crime, terrorism, injustice, evil, none of these things bother you very much. Words terrify you and hurt your feelings. 2. You're very sensitive to being very sensitive. 3. You think the whole world thinks like you do. Or ought to. 4. You can't understand how somebody could enjoy harming, raping, torturing, and dismembering others. So you don't believe it really happens. 5. You get all of your news either from Internet message boards, from comedy shows on cable channels, from late night talk shows, from syndicated cartoons, or all of these things. You think anything that is popular...

    (excerpt) One of the big unanswered questions was whether Kennewick Man was Caucasian. The answer, it turns out, is probably no. He's more likely Polynesian or closer to Ainu, an ethnic group that is now found only in northern Japan but in prehistoric times lived throughout coastal areas of eastern Asia, say researchers
