"Here's a weird idea. Humans have made friends with lots of different animals, we've domesticated dogs cats horses and even cows. But a lot of scientists say we humans show all the same signs of being domesticated as those animals do so today in things you might have talked about late at night near college. Dorm room we ask who exactly domesticated us. Trust me, when I say, you probably won't guess, let me guess is. It the same things that built the pyramids and Stonehenge. It's not aliens. I didn't. Specifically. Well, humans built those things. So humans didn't domesticate humans or did. They. I'll let you tell me. All right. Well, scientists aren't exactly sure why some animals are able to be domesticated and some art wolves turned into dogs.

We also know that lots of mammals take on certain traits as they grow more, domesticated. Not just behavioral things but physical stuff to like smaller teeth shorter face and floppy ears.

So a few men's exhibit physical and social traits of many domesticated species, then who domesticated us the obvious answer is that we domesticated ourselves. So we could live in peace in large communities that there's another theory. Get ready for this one. Maybe we were domesticated by weet. Yes, we eat. The plant weed is a grass that originated in the. Middle East, and it takes a lot of work to grow before. We started growing wheat. We were doing just fine as hunter gatherers, but then we'd came along and gave us a delicious nutritious and easy to store food source. So human started clearing rocks from field. So it could spread and spending days in the hot sun, pulling up weeds that might compete with it for nutrients and coming up with techniques like irrigation and fertilizer to make sure it could thrive. It's a pretty convincing case. And it's got to seeing the gluten free movement in a whole new"
