    I recently saw a youtube video where Brian Foerster showed a bunch of melon-head skulls.

    In the past I spoke of something I called "melon-jaw". It was a shape of jawbone that I associated with melon-heads. Koanic said it was not a melon thing, but a "good testosterone thing". It was a big square jaw, masculine and robust, almost prognathous. The neanderthal jaw is characterised by a receding chin. To my eyes, the receding chin looks weak and unattractive.

    What I saw in the Brian Foerster video is that half the melon-head skulls actually had neanderthal jaws! The other half had what I used to call melon-jaw.

    Perhaps what I thought was melon-jaw is actually cro-magnon jaw. All the crog-mag skulls I've seen have it. Wide, square, and very robust.

    I think melons interbred with neanderthals and cro-mags. I wonder, in fact, if melons aren't a sub-species of neanderthal, or some closely related variant. After all, the red wolf and grey wolf are different in behavior and orientation, despite being close genetically.

    You're onto something. It's not just the males. MM females have very masculine robust skulls, and they hit the wall much harder compared to girls with more neotenous features.
