Sinus Evolution

I have a sinus headache. Please forgive me if this entry sounds a little stuffed-up, if you know what I mean. But I need to talk about the evolution of the sinus in the human species.

It turns out that according to NASA our sinuses have not evolved in 3.2 million years. Yes, it is true; we have the sinuses of alower mammals, like sloths and kangaroo rats. Our sinuses were designed for a brain capacity much smaller and slower than ours. That is why we have sinus pressure and sinusitis and sinus infections too. Because while we were evolving tool and language capacities according to NASA, our sinuses did not.

Imagine, if you will, if our sinuses had also developed tool-capabilities. Oh, the humanity. Well, according to NASA's reading of the Dead Sea Scrolls, it was all part of god's plan.
