Much not mentioned and not to be funny, our sphincters are water tight,
the level we excrete oils from our body to transport smells in water I assume
Back pain, if we had walked upright on land why wouldn't our spines and cartilage have made more adaptations by now
Our need to shower as often as possible
Our affinity to live by coasts and lakes is explained only by trade?
Schizophrenia? Hrrrrm lack of fatty acids from fish... Ever notice how religious extremism grows in deserts and plains?
I believe this 100%

Mopusvindictus-appreciate the reply.
You make some very astute points (especially the water tight bum hole observation)-I concur.
As for those religious extremists that live in the desert and on the plains perhaps we should send them some Marmite as it appears the lack of Zinc in their diet (due to only eating unlevened bread) may make them irritable and belligerent.
Edward de Bono, the guru of creative thinking, has been called in by the Foreign Office to help sort out the Arab-Israeli conflict. Ever willing to help, he has conjured up a solution straight from a jar - Marmite.
The celebrated master of lateral thinking is promoting supplies of the yeast extract spread as the means to resolve the region's seemingly intractable problems.
The logic, briefly, is this. A lack of zinc makes men irritable and belligerent. You get zinc in yeast, which is fine for your average lover of Mother's Pride. But in the Middle East, the bread is unleavened. Ergo, the great man says, Marmite is the answer to easing the way to peace.
Dr de Bono gave two lectures to the Foreign Office last week. The first was open to several hundred officials at all levels and was packed out. For the second, the Middle East team won a bid for a special dedicated session.
Lets flood the Middle East with Marmite after which we can then tactfully inform all the religious extremists and radical imans that they may all in fact be ´schizophrenic seamonkeys´-its crazy but it just might work
