Ahh, you sure?Man, we didnt always look like this, we didnt have fire, couldnt cook like this. We didnt sleep with a pillow, lived in trees originally, so if you cried you would weep in a willow. But one monkey comes down; its cool, when he gets up on his hind legs, he can use tools. Might kill a bird or two, but thats not happening much, instead hes picking blueberries and hes gathering nuts. *</p></li><li><p>But whats this? Hes making a stone knife, now hes hunting antelope his whole life. But its a cold night; with no light its dark as cocoa, no home - that could drive a sane man loco. Picture this like Kodak: he roams, hes a nomad, following herds of pachyderms wherever they go now. He rubs 2 sticks, makes a fire, now his meat and food is so easy to chew. This African man was mostly grunting, couldnt think in our terms, he didnt have words. So he makes a word for fire, a word for water, a word for his son and daughter. *</p></li><li><p>He does another thing that no animal tries, he paints paintings on the cave wall; why? I dont know by hes an African, hes an Ethiopian, and guess what kid, so are you.. Because he made babies, and they made babies, and they made babies, and they made a baby and that baby is you! Oh we aint got no homes, so all we gonna do is roam. Were not Romans, but were nomadic, so you know we keep it going.Ok, I dont even need a hand at all, I will bury the dead like a Neanderthal. Im cool Herc meets Kirk, Your flow captain, *</p></li><li><p>I throw spears like a Cro-Magnon. Thats the early man, he was going insane, tired of chasing animals across the plains. His wifes picking berries and fruit from the trees, shes like, we could grow food if we plant these seeds. Now shes like, this is sweet, my man, we eating bread from the wheat we plant. Those animals you hunt, lets domesticate them, put a fence around, now were baking bacon. We ira-irrigate, control water flowers, plow the land, plant the crops, and watch them grow. *</p></li><li><p>Now my brother doesnt even have to farm no more, The Bronze Age - hes making Bronze arms and swords. Division of labor, thats the plan, now my aunt can go and open that frozen yogurt stand. You better know, we trade it like Joes and settle down, like Jericho kid, we built the cities and towns. You better recognize. *</p></li><li><p>What have you eaten today?
