Scientific proof that Cote is in fact a Neanderthal

Postby marek on Fri Oct 24, 2008 3:07 pm

This slow-mo proves it...
Its the only way to explain why his jaw was not broken by this roundhouse right.

why would it be easier to brake a modern human's jaw than a neanderthal's?

i actually have nothing against cote. he doesn't really bother anyone. and he's a lot more honest with his methods than the turd sandwich of hartnell-richards-upshall.

Um yeah... maybe there are fossilized remains that prove it?!?!?!

Courtesy of wikipedia...
"...were heavily built with robust bone structure. They were much stronger, having particularly strong arms and hands..."

"Neanderthals had more robust build and distinctive morphological features, especially of the cranium, which gradually accumulated more derived aspects, particularly in certain relatively isolated geographic regions. Evidence suggests they were much stronger than modern humans;[25] their relatively robust stature is thought to be an adaptation to the cold climate of Europe"

I was an anthro (and history so it's not all that useless) major, and that may not be too far from the truth. Neanderthals and humans were able to cross breed before the extinction of "Neanderthal Man" -- maybe Cote has some Neanderthal in his bloodlines.

Also, Neanderthals were pushed far south and died out because they couldn't cope with climate change and also regular humans killed them off.

I learned something at Pitt besides memorizing all of the quarter draft specials throughout the week -- Attic Thursdays mainly.

Cote's head was rolling away from the punch when it connected, which any boxer will tell you is the key to being able to take a big punch like that and stay conscious. Still, that's a helluva shot he took from Godard.

My understanding is that there is no evidence that Neanderthals interbred with Cro-Magnons.

That being said, I don't doubt that any Flyer, or Flyer fan, <could> be descended of this sub-human species. ;)
