Are you under the impression that civilization was settling their issues with heated discussions and friendly competition before they were doing it with violence?
Of course not. It's just that as we became more and more civilized you'd think somewhere along the line someone would think "Hmm. Maybe killing each other ISN'T the most productive way to settle our disputes "
I think that's the dream.
I think we should solve our differences with a competitive game...send our intellects to play Jeopardy or something!!
is it sad, that upon hearing "first war", I thought of Harry Potter?
To me, yes. To all the diehard Harry Potter lovers on this site, no.
I used this for amirite status day.
Wow. I honestly didn't expect that to happen.
This is funny, but I'm almost 100% positive that war came before checkers.
It didn't have to be Checkers. I just filled in the blank with a game we all know. I'm sure they had a plethora of rock based strategy games in those times.
:D Probably. I was thinking tag.
I laugh everytine I read this for some reason...
So you're saying that war... is fueled by hate? I thought it was fueled by rainbows and love... wow...
No, I said it must have been fueled by a lot of hate. Make sure you read ALL the words.
agreed, like, this post applies to all current wars just as it did to the first one
I predict a POTD!
