noun. A year I remember like it was....um, a loooooong goddamn time ago.

Real citation: "From what I can find, the type-specimen (the fossil found in Germany's Neander Valley back in the 185whatever) has not been accurately dated. It's range is given at 30k - 100k. I suspect it is towards the younger end of that scale. mtDNA was recovered from it,, as well as from a juvenile Neandertal iin Russia dated at 29K"

Made-up citation: "In 185whatever, Benjamin Franklin invented socks. Or he was the first American to wear socks. Or he strangled his young children with a sock. Or whatever. I'm not a historian! I just work here, God damn you all."
