Yep. I predict either WHOOOSH! or evasion. And FWIW, humans
*are* apes, so "apes and humans" is somewhat redundant.
Yeah, I tend to pedantry; sorry 'bout that...

But it's so *satisfying* to a certain type of cretin!
Anyway, the cl;assic answer to that sort of idiocy is a
question, "If modern Americans came from Europe, why are
there still Europeans?". And yeah, I know that not all
modern Americans came from Europe, but the "logic" still

the one that heralds new discoveries, is not
'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'"
