Do'h

Geneticists are decoding the bones of the Neanderthals and finding that the DNA is nearly identical to humans. From the data analysed so far, a scientific team reports that the Neanderthal and human genomes are at least 99.5 percent identical.

Disappointing, sure, but we already kinda knew that, didn’t we.

Let's just convince ourselves that the .5 percent difference covers both brains and beauty.
