    By day I'd go hang out with the dudes, and sneak up on Mammoths..waiting until a moment where a strategic advantage is gained...then skillfully use a wooden sling to hurl the speak head at the mammoth at a rate of about sixty miles per hour.

    Otherwise, hunt & gather...pick up and move on to more fertile grounds.

    How would I choose my friends? They'd need to be skillful at shaping a good flint, be able to tell a good story...work well as a team player, using good instincts and strategy.

    uh, wait a minute...that's almost exactly the way it works now.
    no, that's not how i am now! i'm a a girl now! back then i'd be a boy and a very effective one indeed... i'd tell you a thing or two about hunters and gatherers and slings and arrows and such. specially about arrows. gawd were they overrated in the day. them were kids play, boy man i'd tell ya bout them for sures.

    I wonder what gender roles would have been like back then?

    I've always suspected that just the nature of the landscape/survival there'd been an attitude of interdependancy and equality vs. what transpired during the rise of agriculture and civilization?

    I've seen bits and pieces that seem to support that notion here and there, but think it would be cool someday to find information that's more "conclusive."

    i would be the long range scout and animal tracker, who rarely or almost never visits the village. haha.
    i would be tracking the movements of animal herds, keeping tabs on the animal population numbers and movements, and passing the information along to Slippy and BlackCat and the other hunters.

    out in the wilderness, maybe with a dog sidekick, and a horse.

    gender roles were paramount in all ages in my opinion. there has always been a need for leadership in a community and men by default have managed to predominate in this realm by virtue of size and strength. nothing much has changed over the centuries.

    of course there's always 'lip service' given to the lesser people of the land who contribute just as much or in many cases more than the dominant.

    i'm intrigued by class, gender, other things like this, i feel such a general resistance to status quo and power structures. thats why i get confused about my instinctual variant (socially, self preservationally, sexually inclined in E terms). i know i have very little social know-how but sometimes my passion only comes out talking about inequitable situations which i feel were born out of mankind more than 100000 years ago and reflects a social power structure.

    I'm androgynous, frail, and attracted to a new form of mysticism we call philosophy. Combine that with my fondness for people and yet separateness from them, and I'm sure I would have been some kind of a shaman.

    I wouldn't like to have just one role. I'd like something different every day. However, I wouldn't like to hunt. Hunting would probably make me feel bad.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    That guy was doing the same thing 10,000 years ago. Just in dirtier clothes.

    Plus that guy is hilarious looking and probably deserves to be in any thread.

    Given the fact that I seem to have this near instinctual drive to excel and expand with great skepticism, being brought up to be christian without me ever having felt like I believed... I'd probably be one of the first astronomers, or an outcast, or burnt on a stake... Head chopped off. Heart carved out. Thrown from a 1000 foot cliff. Fed to the wolves. Basicly, whatever profession the cultural standards allow a person of society like me to be.

    - weapons crafter (made a rifle out of coat hangers, and a functional bow out of bamboo and yo-yo string)
    - cave wall artist (I'm an artist irl)
    - herd tender (I like aminals)
    - A WIZARD (I PLAYED DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS AT ONE POINT IN MY LIFE)

    Assuming this is over 9000 years ago, I'd probably be in better shape and in tune with my surroundings so I might hunt and stuff too.
