"As someone once said," Slatkin observes, " 'If a Neanderthal came and sat next to you on a bus, you'd probably get up and change seats. But if aÂ Homo erectusÂ came andÂ sat next to you on a bus, you'd probably get off the bus.' "

LOL, no kidding!Â One might want to wait a bit before revealing that kind of personal information ;)
