They had tattoos.
They stood at 5'10, wore necklaces and ate mammoth, bears, fish, insects, and horses. Our ancestors the Cro-magnons men, the very...
The French were clearly angry; the opinion polls gauged the drop in popularity on a daily basis. His adversaries began forming coalitions against him. And a book, which he wanted published despite it being impolitic, finally brought him down.

The United Nations threw a large and lavish party at its headquarters in New York on Earth Day, the opening day of the signing ceremony for the world's new climate agreement.
