Ooh - sounds like a good excuse for a collaborative Newsbiscuit article...
"Remains of chariot blocking one-way street ‘confirms stone age sat-nav theory’"
Sorry to be Percy Pedant but to have Sat-Nav, doesn't one need to Navigate using Satellites?
Or is this just another example of the media making 'science' more accessible to the cognitively challenged masses by referring to some easily recognisable concept?
Bit like having Ant'n'Dec read the 10 o'clock news.
Heavens to Betsy.
However, JP, the stone age 'sat-nav' worked just fine because it continuously guided the traveller down narrow dirt tracks. Unfortunately the unwary Neanderthal would sometimes get mistakenly sent up the M6 toll road, or round in stone circles.
Damn the media for trying to make science accessible! Incomprehensible physics was good enough in my day - hurrumph!
What about stone age sat nav making 'out of town henges' possible for the first time? Because then you could have locals moaning about the closure of their local henge. "my ancestors have run this corner henge since the Mesolithic period" complained a Hampshire Druid. "but now our locally sourced virgins aren't good enough for people. They all get in their ox carts, realise no-one's invented the wheel, and walk bloody miles using a complex triangulation calculation"
Also "are we nearly there yet" possibility. Or what about "attempt to launch primitive stone satellite into the heavens avenged with fire by primitive stone god" - "don't play in my heaven"
"don't play in my heaven"
Agree with Wallster. What absolute shite journalism. I should know, I've done enough myself.
So it's a crap blurb for a crap book IMHO. (Sound of blood boiling).
What is the world coming to etc.
