Be poly -- evolve faster.

Apparently, scientists have good reason to believe that polygyny, not monogamy, was the defacto standard for our ancestors, as it explains some interesting discrepencies in our evolutionary history.

Here's an interesting show idea... Get a crack team of geneticists and genealogists and let them loose on well-known people's DNA and family history, just to see what they can find.

"Hm. Looks like your ancestors liked each other a little bit too much..."
