* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

A Neanderthal skull fragment from Nice:

Interbreeding with Neanderthals and Denisovans apparently was a good thing for us, immunity-wise:

... but some agencies are emphasizing the negative side:

Homo erectus was apparently first to master cooking food:
