Not Everthing Is NecesaryPosted: 21 July 2012
There are some things that we absolutely need and then there are those that are not needed any longer…..you know I have always thought that the little toe was a waste of space …..but it seems that Newser.com has done the work for us…..such parts as body hair, male nipples, tailbone and oh so many more…..
Male nipples: All fetuses have nipples, before testosterone makes each baby male or female. Ergo men’s useless nipples. Note that some men have even lactated or gotten breast cancer.
Wisdom teeth: Our jaws have gotten smaller, so wisdom teeth can’t fit anymore. Plus dental hygiene keeps our teeth from falling out and making room for the bulky molars.
Tailbone: When our ancestors no longer needed tails for balance, evolution turned them into fused vertebrae called a coccyx.

Any parts that you think they missed?
