Yeah it is pretty cool that something like this has completly passed us by until now. Makes you wonder what else we have not found yet on our globe.

Don't think much of the hobbit namecalling though. This is a pretty big dicovery and making humour of it by callling them hobbits seems to trivialize(spelling?)  it. I may be overreacting though.

I just wonder if they'll find evidence of this fellow:

I'm sure the scientists are pissed about the hobbit reference.

Reporter: "So you found hobbits?"

Scientist: "No, no Homo floresiensis"

Reporter: "So, hobbits, huh?"

I also think that is the first time I've ever read a "scientific" article and found the word "hobbit-like" smile

Wow. Apparently a bunch of us think alike, because I saw "hobbit-like" and I wondered if they were suddenly goping to find 6'10" humanoid skeletons and say "we've now found elf-like remains".

Now the big question: did they find any Westernesse weapons nearby?

They're not hobbits, they're oompa-loompas, I keep repeating.

Qouted from one of the links:

"We now have the remains of at least seven hobbit-sized individuals at the cave site, so the 18,000-year-old skeleton cannot be some kind of 'freak' that we just happened to stumble across first," said Bert Roberts, an anthropologist at the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia, and co-author of the study about the find in this week's issue of the journal "Nature."

Even the anthropologist think they are hobbits  biggrin
