Darwin's creature from the Messel pit
So for the Science/Archeology geek part of me this is a big fucking deal.
Today scientists unveiled a 47 million year old fossilised skeleton and is the most complete fossil ever discovered, missing only one leg.
It's basically been dubbed the 'missing link' in the evolution of humans from apes as it has the opposale thumbs and hind leg structure not seen previously but seen in humans today.
It's basically some Indiana Jones shit these boys discovered. A proper Lost Ark/Holy Grail scenario, but with less Nazis.
