As everyone knows, the eyebrow evolved in humans (or
correctly, remained with us from when we were monkeys)
order to keep sweat from falling in our eyes and blinding us
we tried to run away from angry predators in Africa.
for those of us unlucky enough to not have
still trickles down and collects on the tip of our nose, falling
onto whatever project we're feverishly working on, resulting
in smudged ink, ruined stamp collections, etc.
Solution: the monobrow toupee, an adhesive prosthesis
designed to match your own eyebrow type and which can be
changed quickly and easily.
Alternatively, for a more permanent approach, a "hair club
men" technique could be undertaken and the piece could
woven in with your already-existing eyebrow hair. Finally,
those who are really serious and have money to spend,
eyebrow implants would be the ultimate solution.

However, beauty is in the eybrow of the beholder. Practical
concerns should come first, in my opinion.

||all i'd need to do is let my real monobrow grow. as it is now, i've just been shaving that little bit over my nose.

||I think more likely he was taking issue with the idea that we used to be monkeys... Apes! And not those we see today either!
||I don't think monkeys have wasteful sweating like humans do. By wasteful I mean sweat that falls off in drops rather than staying on the skin to evaporate and maximally cool.
||The evolutionary reason for eyebrows is not immediately obvious to me.
