Mistake














"It is a mistake to think that because they had no television or computers that they were one whit less intelligent than we who live where they lived."

They probably didn't live on the floodplains of major rivers.

And they probably didn't live in Britain.

They did?

And if your tribe's houses got flooded you could just invade your neighboring tribe, kill or enslave them and live in their houses. It was a much sounder social system in my view.

Hi David! Bet they worked too, I would have legged it long before they shouted their fearsome battlecry, "One hundred and eighty!"

Mr. X, I rather envy my neighbour's view of the sea, and wouldn't mind enslaving her either. Good tip.

Hi Wickedred... that led me on to the faintly nutty "Darkon Wargaming Club" of Baltimore, who suggest getting one's nomme de guerre from a website for the very nutty "Kalabarian Philosophy"... and who knows where that site might lead? Isn't madness fun?
