World's Oldest Jewellery

Marine shell bead
Two small marine shells in the Natural History Museum, London, were artificially pierced for use as beads 100,000 years ago. This makes them the oldest jewellery ever found. Excavated in the early 1930's from Skhul in Israel, they were recently dated using modern techniques. As a pressie to Miss Gorgeous 2006 they would fall on stony ground, but as evidence of the origins of humanity they are priceless. Sceptical? Still clinging to the notion of a mythical Garden of Eden created a mere 2000 years BC? White Supremacist? Can't accept that you're descended from Africans? Click the title link to be disillusioned. Then cheer yourself up with a dinosaur game.

What worries me is what is Homo-Future going to make of us when in 100,000 years time he, she or it digs up a barbie Doll, one of those "toys" you find on the internet or even one of your urinals.

If the feminists have their way, it won't be Homo future, it'll be Fem future!
If they've got any sense, they'll take it all with a pinch of salt, including your daughter's urinals.
