    The genus is older than H. erectus. Homo habilis used stone tools; in fact the species was named "habilis" (Latin for "skillful") precisely because stone tools were commonly found in the vicinity of their fossils.

    Stone tools may date as far back as the time of Australopithecus afarensis, but anthropologists aren't entirely sure. At least this was still the case when I took anthropology in university.

    That's how it is supposed to be.

    #2 and #3 are pretty bad literal translations. #6 could be better as well.

    #2 is correctly translated but incorrectly explained. It does not mean that people who tell the truth are hard to find - it simply means what it says an is a phrase used when somebody drunk (or a child) says soething true but socially awkward.

    #3 is more or less correctly explained but incorrectly translated. It translates more like "you are massively walking/stepping on my cookie" not "you walk me animally on the cookie" ("tierisch" means massively, enormously and literally translates as animally, thus) and translates as "you are getting in my nerves"

    #6 is actually a bit shorter and more elegant: "lid closed, monkey dead" - i.e. "that's the end of that" ("and Bob's your uncle")

    Everytime I see Jim Harper (Newsroom) make that squinty face he uses to display all his man child emotions. I have the overwhelming urge to punch him in the face. On the other hand I'm going to miss Newsroom, it was interesting, and Sloan Sabbith was hilarious.
    At the time they cut me free. I was brimming with defiance. Doctors looking down on me. Breaking every law of science.
    How'd I ever end up here? A latent strain of color blindness. Then it seemed to dawn on me. Haemoglobin is the key

    I feel like that when I see Keira Knightley make duck face. But I actually adore the most recent Anna Karenina.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to download another audio track for a series or... am I required to suffer through these subtitles?
