I saw the story about a week ago, what was interesting was hearing almost everyone interpret it as evidence modern humans are 95,000 years older than first thought, as no hominid could have done this. 

I even tried to point out to one that for a hominid species like Heidelberg that made stone tools of the quality it did, putting a stone on a stick is a pretty simple thing to do in comparison but to no avail.

Another proposed even old find of a spearhead is at Kathu Pan, 500,000 ya

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out
