  1. > Two million years ago, three different early humans—Australopithecus, Paranthropus, and the earliest-known Homo erectus—appear to have lived at the same time in the same place, near the Drimolen Paleocave System.

    Sounds like the premise of a history sitcom – the early dudes

    Edit – Just clarifying I had never seen the Geico Caveman commercials in my life and some references were not making sense at all. Not from the US.

  2. Well how else would they unearth these ancient humans without a bit of groundbreaking?

  3. I am so fascinated as to what humans will look like in another 100,000 years. What comes after homo sapien???

  4. I wonder if we ate and/or screwed this third species out of existence like we did with Neanderthals…

  5. Any hint to their classes? Did they have magic items?

  6. Well well well, what would all of our racist grandparents have to say about this?

    Filthy fucking hippies!

  7. It was a fuckin orgy! Freaks…

  8. freakiest threesome in history

  9. They probably understood deep down that they were the same

  10. Ancient Astronaut theorists believe…

  11. Imagine if this had been uncovered 30 years ago in Apartheid era South Africa.

  12. Someone introduce scientists to Walmart. They will make the same discoveries, with a lot less effort.

  13. Complete failure at social distancing though

  14. Unearthed living together?? Were they mole people?

  15. That could be a good sitcom.

  16. They really did break ground for this discovery.

  17. Humans emerged from a hybrid swarm: we are innately scavenging mongrels, and all the better for it.

  18. I hope they are doing ok and we don’t disturb them further.

  19. Maybe they killed each other and took over the place.

  20. And they were roommates

  21. If they can do it, we can do it, right guys? Guys?

  22. And today even one kind of humans can’t live together.

  23. Living together or slaves…

  24. And we can’t even agree on how to worship an invisible sky wizard. Devo was right.

  25. No social distancing? Tsk Tsk.
