News that evidence of a distinct species of man has been found in Indonesia has to be one of the more exciting developments of the year. Scientists believe the homonids, nicknamed hobbits because they only grew to be three feet tall, were alive as recently as 12,000 years ago. Not only is this long after all other human species (aside from ours) died out, it is also longer than the federal Liberals have been in power! Wow!
