What if tomorrow you woke up in Africa, 30,000 years before today? Exactly how much knowledge do you possess that would make you any better at surviving than anyone else there? Sure, you were savvy enough to build a time machine in your sleep, an awe-inspiring achievement! But; and there's always a but, when you were transported back you landed...
