It seems so long ago you'd think we would see some human evolution between then and now.

Years ago maybe the late sixties early seventies there was a cartoon drawing of I think "21st century man" I

thought it was Mad Magazine, but I just cannot find it online.

It shows man evolved into a quasimodo like thing hunched over, large head, pencil thin legs and arms, fingers

that have adapted more for key punching than climbing or making tools. Pretty funny I wish I could find it.
