“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.” -Mike Tyson
Get this through your thickened skull: human faces evolved to take a punch! Human facial bone structure developed “protective buttressing” which is the wussiest way to describe the effects of fist fights. The three podcast pansies discuss how they have never been in an actual fight. Raj reveals how the “power grip” for tools was weaponized by early man. Jono explains how the human face still does not protect against errant baseballs, and Joe points out how we have not evolved a way to protect the family jewels (also available on iTunes):
The paper: “Protective buttressing of the hominin face” (Carrier & Morgan, 2014).
