I suffer from jet lag ...

RatBastard Homeward Bound Only (163 comments)

I almost never suffer jet lag when I travel away from home. It's the trip back that gets me. Most likely it's the second time jump that does me in.

Monogamy May Have Evolved To Prevent Infanticide

RatBastard Re:But that doesn't explain (256 comments)

No, it did not say that other species practiced infanticide. It said that infanticide was much more detrimental to us (and what had evolved into us) due to the extended period of helplessness during infancy. Infanticide was much too expensive for us than it is for lions and such.

Then the oxygen levels in the oceans and atmosphere reached saturation levels and aerobic live took over. And with the higher complexity of possible life forms, the increase in reproductive frequency, and the over-all speedup of this rocket-fueled form of life genetic diversity exploded.
