I suppose my share's in some high-interest Caymans account - no rush over the money of course - how's tomorrow?
That's an older will. Your share was that jawbone of an ass that's still lying in the desert!

Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I never heard Native Americans were ever considered a pure population by before though...?
One of the most amazing discoveries is that contrary to what was believed human development was not come directly from central Africa to middle east but passed first by the Sahara that was then not a desert. From the Sahara to Egypt, Middle east and Iberia.

It was supposed that Iberia was populated by migrations from the middle East but now ADN had shown that was not the case and the the oldest Europeans, that share a unique gene with Algerians (Sahara refugees) and Sardinians are the Basque, the Portuguese and some populations in central Spain.

The Sahara is really the berth of humankind.

Interesting programme the other night suggested we nearly didn't make it with the human population being reduced to about 60,000 and trapped on the southern tip of South Africa following a period of global warming.
