The TrogloPundit Uses Makeup

BBC News reports:
Scientists claim to have the first persuasive evidence that Neanderthals wore "body paint" 50,000 years ago.

The team report in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) that shells containing pigment residues were Neanderthal make-up containers.

Scientists unearthed the shells at two archaeological sites in the Murcia province of southern Spain.

Big whoop! Wait 'til they get to Swiss Neanderthal archaeological sites:

I've got news for you amateur scientists: Neanderthals use computers, too.
