New Species at the Bristol Zoo

Visitors to the Bristol Zoo can read all about the species Homo sapiens in this plaque hung by the window of the zoo’s cafe. It says, in part:
After a gestation period of nine months, humans usually live in their parents’ nest for around 16 years. While the parents are out foraging for food, juveniles are looked after in large groups by other adults.

In adolescence, the offspring adopt a more nocturnal lifestyle and engage in ritualized activities of drinking fermented liquids and dancing to rhythmical sounds, which scientists believe help them to find a mate.

Around the neighborhood where I work, 16 year old girls already have their first kid, and are provided with an apartment or house by our welfare nanny state. Their kids have grandparents who are only 32 years older than they are. They have about 6 half siblings, 42 half cousins, and no fathers that they have ever met.

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.
