    This shit is bad ass.

    Basically the idea is you chase after a big animal in 100+ degree heat and it eventually passes out from heat exhaustion. Because we are relatively hairless and have the ability to sweat much more than any other animal we are able to run over longer distances at higher temperatures. By walking on two feet you are slower than on 4, but it uses was less energy allowing you to run for longer distances. This may explain while we are bipeds.

    Gives us time to do more than just try to stay alive. Sounds like quite the survival advantage to me...

    Never before has "You can run, but you'll die tired" been more appropriate.

    Thats exactly what i was thinking. Does he have to wait for his lazy fuck hunting pals or does he have to start dragging the fucker himself.
