Interesting factoid

Today I learned from this book that if I stood in San Francisco and held hands with my mother, and she held hands with her mother, and so on towards the East coast, then by the time the chain arrived in New York, one of my ancestors would be holding hands with a "missing link", an individual that was also the ancestor of the modern chimpanzee.

That's pretty neat.
