Tech Writer David Pogue Transforms Into Neanderthal

Watch writer David Pogue transform into a Neanderthal through the magic of modern prosthetic makeup. Pogue’s transformation comes courtesy of PBS television program Nova ScienceNow, hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. On this Wednesday’s episode, “What Makes Us Human”, Pogue will walk the streets of New York City in his Neanderthal get-up and see how people react. Would you notice anything unusual about Pogue?

    Being neanderthal is a state of mind not a state of makeup.  Go sell some insurance.

      Wholehearted concurrence.  What a fantastic waste of time and money!

      I’m from Wisconsin, so you can take it from me that a lousy $3 4-pack of some watery pilsner will do the job twice as fast and ten times more cost effecitvely.
