Greetings to all you members and fans of the BF Researchers Lunch Club. The founding members of the BFRLC apologize for keeping this post hanging for a couple weeks now. We will be posting all sorts of things in the near future and hope that you all check in with us daily, even hourly, and if you have nothing else to do, maybe every few minutes. In the meantime, take a look back at some of our classic posts. The not so secret handshake, Am I my Brother's Keeper, and others are great reminders of how important this site is to all BF Researchers out there. As for lunch reviews...well, we'll be getting back to that in the very near future too. PB and J for our meetings is only so exciting to report; although Epic Gilgamesh does a darnright impressive job of getting both the PB and J evenly spread. Of course an uproar was heard when he cut the sandwich straight across and not diagonally. I mean really, Epic, would you add ketchup to your mac-n-cheese? Bite into your string cheese rather than peeling it? I think something about this needs to be an amendment to our bylaws (yet to be posted). Okay, anyways, we look forward to still being your number one source for news and entertainment!

Robert McCarthy of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton reconstructed Neanderthal vocal tracts to simulate their voice with a computer synthesizer. McCarthy used the fossil record to help his reconstruction of the Caveman's voice. Simple sounds were made, but McCarthy hopes to create a whole Neanderthal sentence. McCarthy spoke at the annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists in Ohio this month.

Hello BF Researchers! We are just over 48 hours until the next BFRLC meeting. What an exciting time it has been for the club - the highlight of the past couple weeks has definitely been the addition of the BFRLC Trading Cards, check them out, print them out and collect them as they come. This weeks meeting will cover such topics as merchandising, our pending field trip, and the possible endorsement of a candidate by the BFRLC. So, what will it be for lunch? A trip to a taqueria? A nice rye bread with pastrami? Vegan soup? I can hardly wait, see you all there.
