As I understand it, the appendix at one time assisted in our digestion. Today it is useless. Our wisdom teeth, I have learned, helped our ancestors chew tough herbs and raw meat. Today they are a nuisance. But there is a third biological mystery for which I have no answer. So please explain, why do males have nipples?

When in doubt, go to The Straight Dope (http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a1_093.html)

echarcha ji, those straight dope books are actually very educational :). I have 4 or 5 of them and every one of them is a fount of information presented with a funny touch. Classics for sure and excellent for bathroom reading :)

i heard it was because all babies are girls when they are in foetus, and the sex isnt "determined" until one/two months and by the time the sex is "determined", they already have nipples!
