FILMING FOR MUSEUM EXHIBITS

LAUGHING BEGAN FOUR MILLION YEARS AGO
Actually, I think many of you will laugh at this article I received today:
Evolutionary biologists have traced the origins of laughter back 4m years to pre-humans slipping and stumbling in their first faltering attempts to walk on two legs. According to the theory, when they saw a member of their group lose his footing they would laugh as a sign to each other that something was amiss, but nothing too serious.
The theory could explain why, to this day, the ungainly walk remains a staple element of slapstick humour from John Cleeses "Ministry of Silly Walks" to Rowan Atkinsons accident-prone Mr Bean.
So there you have it! Laughing began when pre-humans (apes!) laughed at other pre-humans (apes) who were evolving to walk to two legs! Isnt it great to know such things can be taught as fact in the public schools!
You can read the rest of the article at this link: "Sorry old Bean, the apes got there first."
I had a busy day of meetings todaya lot of time spent with the museum team and the company producing all the museum videos.
Thanks for stopping by,
