It's mind numbing to think of how quickly humanity spread. Humans evolved from apes, and apes first appear in the fossil record 23 million years ago. Compress that down to a year.In that case apes appear on the first of January. Toward the end of October the first apeman arrives. Incredibly it's not until the 28th of December that the first fully modern humans arrive. And even more incredibly it's not until the 31st that they leave Africa. And by the end of the day they were across the globe. amirite?

If you look at the scale of the universe, the entire human existence is in the very last second of December 31. That is so cool.

I had a bit more embellishment but I ran out of characters. So often I feel like you agree with me from the comments but you don't up vote

Agreed, but I feel like this is going to have a ton of comments about the second sentence.

Humans didn't evolve from apes.

@BetterThanEzra1119 Humans didn't evolve from apes.

If you can't see the link. It's from a documentary called the journey of man. Really incredible. It's on YouTube in 10 minute clips if you wanna watch it
