@RobinHood "A student once asked anthropologist Margaret Mead, “What is the earliest sign of civilization?” The student expected her to say a clay pot, a grinding stone, or maybe a weapon.
Margaret Mead thought for a moment, then she said, “A healed femur.”
@RobinHood A femur is the longest bone in the body, linking hip to knee. In societies without the benefits of modern medicine, it takes about six weeks of rest for a fractured femur to heal. A healed femur shows that someone cared for the injured person, did their hunting and gathering, stayed with them, and offered physical protection and human companionship until the injury could mend.
@RobinHood Mead explained that where the law of the jungle—the survival of the fittest—rules, no femurs healed femurs are found. The first sign of civilization is compassion, seen in a healed femur"
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
