    I got smacked by one of those in high school. Infractions be damned it was worth it.

    In Cricket if you hit the ball over the boundary on the full its a "6" or six runs...The batters dont need to run...Each "over" involves bowling 6 balls then a change of bowler.
    In general a team has 11 players - Basically 5 batters and 5 Bowlers and a wicket keeper (the bloke behind the stumps/wickets). If you are lucky you have at least one "all rounder" who can bat and bowl well in your team. Anyone can bowl...and everyone has to bat. You bat for as long as you can until given out...That means you CAN score 200 runs and still retire not out!

    Ive been called that before...My point is that hibernation isn't just for small animals...Large Animals/Mammals can and do hibernate if needed. But why did we need to? Certainly doubt we did this in Africa (although you never know) - The last ice age seems to near (but may have been when this started) - Maybe the ice age before...Maybe we got it from Neanderthals etc etc...

    No we don't - But we may have before we were humans...The genes become redundant, turn off...But they can be turned on again through genetic manipulation. Maybe we simply got it from admixing with another humanoid species...
    OR
    We could become human chimeras and add and turn on all sort of genes! Wooohahahaha....!

    We could also have florescent fingers and three eyes. DNA manipulation is starting to worry me

    Australopithecus africanus, aka "LUCY", was a tropical dweller. The human lines, like Homo naledi, were native to warm climates in Central Africa. Nothing in that region was a hibernator. When humans went north into Europe they did so before the ice ages began and the cold weather periods weren't long enough to evolve a need to hibernate. We made fire instead, further reducing the need to stupor for months.
