I'm thinking I would have made a pretty good hunter-gatherer and at least I wouldn't be suffering from arthritis because I'd be dead by the age I am now.


When the Neanderthal folks were discovered, they were thought to be humpbacked. More recently, the humpback is believed to be a result of arthritis.

The Neanderthal, and Homo Sap, up until the agricultural revolution (which brought disease with it), lived the the same three score and ten as we do today.

What is new and different today, is that our medicine can keep us alive past that time.
