This is what opposable thumbs is all about. My Australopithecine ancestor (who’s also yours) would be proud. It’s all very well to train dogs to pull down a door lever – they look so cute and intelligent when they do that – but no one has bothered to teach them to shut the door afterwards. No, this is why the forehead shrank, the back straightened, the hair receded and the cranium grew.
It started off with Quark’s fantastically textured post
