Four Percenters Unite!: Study says some humans are four percent caveman

Hey, I’m not making this stuff up.

We have met Neanderthals, and they are us – or about 1 to 4 percent of each of us.

That is one implication of a four-year effort to sequence the Neanderthal genome – essentially setting out in order some 3 billion combinations of four key molecules that together represent the Neanderthals’ genetic blueprint. (Full story…)

Interesting. So, if some folks have more Neanderthal slouching around their genome than others, who might these four percenters be? I have theories.

I’m pretty sure there are more. But hey, it’s the 21st Century and we believe in diversity, so all you 4%ers out there, be proud of who you are, okay?
