prehumans fought like bighorns?

Kids today have it soooo easy. In my day, you had to ram heads together (club optional) to get a date to prom.

Clubbing heads may have been part of mating rituals.

Bit- The tides have changed and now men inflict pain upon themselves in-order to impress the ladies...

Let me remind you of your own poem that, if I might say, I quite admire!!

Bitmasher,
"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie.... Thats Amoure!

"When the lead hits your fly and you just want to cry.... That's Amoure!"

Sicily Man Arranges Shooting to Woo a Woman

I guess we're more likely to turn the club (gun) on ourselves before we try and knock out (shoot) the one we love.

Note the gray hair and male pattern baldness. Homo Erectus' era no doubt coincided with emergence of social structures enabled by development of stone tools, weapons, and fire.

These things increased protein levels in the diet tremendously, and fire better protected them from the elements. Naturally, mortality rates dropped, populations increased and, since less time had to be devoted to food gathering, more leisure time was available to devote to developing social roles arising around the campfire.

So why the thick skulls? Probably from these guys beating their heads against cave walls as they dealt with more mouths to feed and women complaining about them leaving their tools lying around.

Just think if we had heads like that today, there would be no need for jack hammers. Just walk outside, slam your head against the concrete for awhile, pull up the broken rubble then call in the cement truck. Presto new drive way!

Would have completely changed warfare in the middle ages too. Trebuchets? Onagers? Bah, just need a legion of men to slam their collective heads against the castle walls.

Yeah we moved from male on male fighting to just male on himself. Who says evolution is all its cracked up to be? Wink

I'm still amazed that the sicilian actually thought that pointing a shotgun at his nads and pulling the trigger would have any .... i repeat .... any ... positive outcome.

Maybe he was having ''problems'' and wanted those parts of his anatomy to go out with a ''bang''
