That is if we survive Global Warming, Nuclear war, overpopulation, super disesases and so on. Already we have more people trying to be selective as to who they want as a partner.

That would be me, except they missed off "young, beautiful, thin and gorgeous", but the gist is there.

"and a far cry from the "underclass" humans who would have evolved into dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like creatures."

Yes, that sounds like Kirkie, definitely - to a tee, in fact  rotfl  - except of course he doesn't need to evolve into that, he's already there.

Are you sure? Seems to me 100,000 years of progress is about the right timescale.

In a more serious side..  Wink

This is quite interesting to read, whether all factual or false. Humans HAVE evolved that is definetly for sure.

Most humans today seem to become more attractive and more "perfect" due to technology today.

We definetly will evole once again, but to what extent is the unknown unless they actually predict this correctly.

That is of course one pointed out, we survive everything else, and the big thing December 21st,2012!

It think the split might be occurring already, certainly in social terms, if not in appearance.

One does, what one must..... I am a proud Canadian with the unfortunate accident of my birthplace haunting me forever. Therefore, I am no longer considered a Brummie. But being related to several  ashamed  including my parents, still forces me to stick up for them when such a libellous attack is launched by Plymspotter.

Banco I don't have one, I speak middle Canadian. It comes from a lot of moving around as a youngster, the pictish coast, the land of the dragon, central Canada, western Canada. Then joining the military and working with every canadian accent you can think of, and living and working in every region of the country for 28+ years. But get me drunk or expose me to a distinct accent for a day or two and you won't understand me.

Clearly anyone who has spent any time in a Pictish area is automatically infected. As it is impossible to know the duration of his exposure to Pictishness, quarantine will not be of any use. In such cases, rapid and painful euthenasia is indicated.
