@jkb Apes (and humans) are more closely related to old world monkeys or circopithecidae which have non-prehensile tails. New world monkeys or atelidae have prehensile tails and are evolutionarily more distantly related to humans. So I would think humans would have non-prehensile tails more similar to macaques and baboons rather than the prehensile tales of spider monkeys. But if we did have tails they would interfere with our upright bipedal gait and big butts.

Would a human tail be prehensile? Would we use it to maintain balance? In those cases a sleeve might be quite uncomfortable.

If we used our tails to communicate, like dogs do, would we be able to "read" a clothed tail? I think so.

If you ever wondered if there is anything useful you can do with DRM. Signal actually found a use-case.

Use it to verify that the server-side code is the code you expect it to be. It's still not perfect, but a very interesting way to use it.

If humans had tails, would we have holes in our trousers, or would we have an extra sleeve to put the tail in?

Apes are tailless so it's kind of hard to image how long, how thick, or how fluffy a humain tail would be.

"JavaScript growth and third parties" by Steve Souders

"JavaScript is the main cause for making websites slow. [Compared to 7 years ago, ] 1st-party JS doubled from 53 KB to 106 KB. 3rd-party JS octupled (!) from 32 KB to 258 KB."

What's most remarkable is that this happened even with the rise of bundlers, which effectively make 3rd-party JS "look" like 1st-party. In other words, that 1st-party growth is probably node_modules; the 3rd-party growth is ads/trackers/???.
