Apparently, 25,000 years ago, about the time man was first hanging out with dogs, folks were eating pretty well.
Hmmmm... Maybe it wasn't the the horrible struggle for survival so commonly imagined?
Oh sure, there was disease, child and maternal mortality, infection, predators, and parasites. Sure there was no electricity, refrigeration, or metal tools. Sure you had to hunt for all your food and there was no wheat, potatoes, soy, or cotton. But aside from that....
Meanwhile, The New York Times informs us that "Neanderthals painted on cave walls in Spain 65,000 years ago – tens of thousands of years before modern humans arrived."
Oh sure, it's Neanderthal-made.
But is it ART?
How can it be ART if it’s not hung in a gallery with 50 percent of the price going to the gallery owner?
How can it be art if there is no fake bidding within in a contrived and artificial market based on familiarity, fashion, and conspicuous consumption?
Let me be clear: THIS is ART and it costs over $32 million.
