I can say no to the first five items, and yes to most of the later ones.

I drive a lot less than I used to, though I might drive to an air-conditioned shopping mall today.

I can't ride bicycles either. I remember reading about a centenarian who rode a bike, and I was envious. smiley - envy

The other day I was reading Ida Craddock's book about heaven (from about 1900), and she decided the wheel Ezekiel saw was a heavenly bicycle.

I almost died laughing at the idea of angels on bicycles. smiley - laugh

Our ancestors may have interbred with Neanderthals.

Neanderthals were apparently not as stupid as some people think they were. Physically, they tended to be big and muscular, with huge noses to warm the very cold air they had to breathe. Not very attractive compared to our paragons of beauty, but strong and hardy enough to survive to survive what ice ages could throw at them.

If there's a gene for idiocy, it's probably in almost all of us. I know that people have wondered about me....

The more "we" learn about our past, the more comes to light that man's very early "history" has many flaws.

Well....

Some of our ancestors thought that selected Neanderthals were attractive enough to mate with.
