In the early 1900s, large numbers of Neanderthal skeletons were found in the Dordogne region of southern France. And scientists decided that they finally had enough information to say what a Neanderthal Man looked like. They gave the job of rebuilding a Neanderthal Man to a French scientist called Marcellin Boule.
After studying the bones for many months, Boule began writing reports that described the Neanderthal Man as looking more like an animal than a human being. A curved spine, he said, stopped the Neanderthal Man from standing upright and forced it to hold its head forward. Nor could it fully extend its legs. And, like a monkey, it could pick up and hold things with its feet.
In 1957, however, British scientists looked again at the skeleton Boule had studied. And they decided that most of Boule’s ideas were wrong. The Neanderthal’s feet could not hold things, and its spine was not curved. Neanderthals could stand upright, but the skeleton Boule had studied had arthritis. And when they calculated the size of the Neanderthal’s brain, they decided that it was as large as the brain of early Homo sapiens.

The McDonald’s hamburger company is going into the airline catering business. A Swiss charter plane will be painted in the McDonald’s colors, some cabin staff will wear McDonald’s outfits, and the inflight food, instead of the customary cold collation, will be Big Macs and chicken McNuggets.
The service will be introduced on April 1, which initially led some people to suspect an April Fool trick, but the company and its Swiss airline collaborator, Crossair, confirmed yesterday that the project is no hoax. It will serve charter routes from Geneva and Zurich to popular European holiday resorts.
In line with the McDonald’s practice of prefixing products with “Mc”, the 161-seater MD83jet will be known officially as the McPlane. Its fuselage will be painted to depict the McDonald’s golden arches, and the cabin seats will be upholstered in bright red leather. McPlane’s interior will seek to create the atmosphere of a McDonald’s high street outlet, complete with “Have a nice day” greetings from the cockpit. However, it is uncertain if the cabin drinks trolley would be replaced by a milkshake dispenser. Chips, or “fries” as McDonald’s call them, have been ruled out because of the danger of using a deep-fat frier. 【題組】76.
