Fio, as you know, is endlessly fascinated by the diversity of mankind. The European Neanderthals have been around for ages, but, in recent years, a lot more variety has turned up. The Indonesian Hobbits, at first thought to be a hoax or chance anomaly, have been verfied as genuine little people. Now we have Denisovians, Asian Neanderthals, traces of whose DNA appears only in Melanesians.

Fio, of course, is thrilled. When will the elves be discovered?

According to my calculations, based on the current rate of melting and a linear increase in global warming, elves will be discovered at the north pole in the year 2,000,011.
