I don't know about the long hair/baldness thing, but Desmond Morris, the author of "The Naked Ape"(awesome book, recommended read), related the facts: we are the only apes with hair going in one direction, and we are the only apes that can swim. It makes a lot of sense if you think about it, the evidence is all around. If we were savannah animals, would we really have to dig small lakes in the middle of condos in order to increase the value?
PS Desmond also has at least one recent (ie the last two or three years) TV special called, I believe, "The Naked Ape". Definitely an awesome show. I highly recommend it too.
