The Top Ten Things Dead People Want to Tell YOU

The Top Ten Things Dead People Want to Tell YOU “I know this may come as a shock, and you know I’m not fond of using stale one-liners, but—‘reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.’ I’m as alive now as I was on the day we met, except, maybe, more so.” If the dead could speak, don’t you wonder what they would say to those of us they’ve left behind?

Elaborate Neanderthal Structure Found

The structures, dated to around 176,000 years ago and described in the journal Nature, provide evidence that Neanderthals were clever about using fire, had complex spatial organizational abilities, and explored at least one extensive cave system.

Snub-Nosed Dogs More Affectionate, Better Guard Dogs

Previous Next Thinkstock Previous Next Università degli Studi di Milano Facial expressions among social animals appear to have universal qualities, to the point where humans and other animals can discern how certain species feel just by looking at their faces.
