      Like this. China around the time of Christ. Building the "Grand Canal". 1,000 miles between the Yangtze and Yellow rivers.Millions of people involved. People used as beasts of burden, wooden stick carrying two buckets on each end over the head or shoulders. 2 or 3 AD, some unknown Chinese invented the wheelbarrow. Point of axis feet in front and quadruple the load each human could carry with each load.

        Impossible, the wheel hadn't been invented yet. No wheel, no wheelbarrow.

            Aren't pistachios(or something similar, ok not pistachios ) like poisonous before someone figured out the way to cook and breed the poison out. Maybe almonds. I forget.

                  Idiot CQ talking about modern weaponry. There was one simple invention, also in China from some unknown person around 4th century AD that changed the entire face of warfare from China to Europe. Care to guess?

                      I'm thinking you're mistaking the Aztecs. Summerians(sp) in Persia were doing the chariot thing well before 2,000 BC.

                            I haven't mentioned any weaponry in this thread, what the fuck are you babbling about?

                              Cashews and Pistachio are both members of the same family of plants as poison ivy. When you buy raw cashews, they aren't actually raw. They have to boil them or steam them to kill the oil.

                                For a million years until they figured out how to tame natures food basket.
