  • Evolution my friend. The same reason that the empathetic fold exists and that some people have darker skin than others.

    • Thank you, my friend!

    • True, but what evolutionary advantage did it give them? I understand the northern latitudes having fairer skin and the tropics having darker skin to deal with the Sun, (and that is as true in northern Asia as opposed to southern Asia as it is in Nordic Europe vs. Mediterranean Europe/North Africa vs. Sub-Saharan Africa) but what visual advantage is there in "almond" as opposed to "round" eyes?)

    • @Curmudgeon If I remember correctly it has do do with needing to protect the eyes from harsh winds and sand/dust.

  • is it? why I don't realize that
