The Hilarious Evolution of Mankind: From Scrappy Scavengers to Laser-Eyed Beings
The evolution of mankind has been a long and winding road, full of twists and turns and more than a few hilarious missteps along the way.
Let’s start at the beginning, with our ancient ancestors. These early humans were a scrappy bunch, living in small tribes and scavenging for food wherever they could find it. They were also pretty hairy, which must have made for some interesting grooming habits. (Can you imagine trying to untangle a matted mane with just a rock and a stick?)
As time went on, humans began to evolve and adapt to their surroundings. We developed tools and learned to hunt, which allowed us to move out of the trees and onto the savannah. This was a big deal, as it meant that we could finally stand upright and stop walking around like gorillas (although some of us still do).
But as humans continued to evolve, we didn’t always get things right. For example, take the dinosaurs. They were all the rage back in the day, but then they went and got themselves extinct. Talk about a major fail.
And let’s not forget about the saber-toothed tiger. With those massive fangs, it looked like it was ready to take over the world. But then it turned out that it was a little too specialized, and it couldn’t compete with all the other predators out there. Oops.
But despite these missteps, humans have managed to survive and thrive, thanks in part to our ability to adapt and learn from our mistakes. And as we continue to evolve, who knows what the future holds? Maybe one day we’ll evolve into a race of super-intelligent, laser-eyed, telepathic beings. Or maybe we’ll all just end up with really long thumbs from texting too much. Either way, it’s sure to be an interesting ride.
