Not nearly as huge as the black hole...

Ok in terms of physical size sure... but we already knew black holes existed. These guys came out of nowhere (probably because they're so tiny)

"The excavation did not yield a complete skeleton: seven teeth, two hand bones, three foot bones and one thigh bone were found, thought to belong to two adults and one child. Nevertheless, the fossils provide intriguing clues to the appearance and lifestyle of Homo luzonensis."

Honestly I'm shocked that they found so much. Used to seeing anything of this sort coming from far less. Exciting stuff.

Yeah all we found of the Denisovans were a finger bone, 2 teeth, and a toe bone, and we've already sequenced their DNA (I'm 1.5% Denisovan by the way.... how DARE you assh*les wipe out my ancestors!?)

Homo luzonensis? I smell the name of a new indie band.
