Do you think you are tough because you can get up at five in the morning, work all day, drink all night and then make it the next day on four hours of sleep? Well…yeah. You are pretty tough. But you ain’t as tough as our Dinosaur dodging ancestors, so says Peter McAllister, a guy who has studied some stuff and has went to school or something. From Reuters.
McAllister sets out his stall in the opening sentence of the prologue. “If you’re reading this then you — or the male you have bought it for — are the worst man in history. “No ifs, no buts — the worst man, period…As a class we are in fact the sorriest cohort of masculine Homo sapiens to ever walk the planet.” Delving into a wide range of source material McAllister finds evidence he believes proves that modern man is inferior to his predecessors in, among other fields, the basic Olympic athletics disciplines of running and jumping.
Oh, yeah? I’d like to see a Caveman try and use Twitter, Facebook, IM, and text on the phone at the same time while he grades papers, reads a few emails, listen to music and watch Rachel Maddow. Oh, not so tough now, are you Cavemen? If you can keep up, don’t step up. Hairy Punk.
