GUYS! LOWER PALEOLITHIC! I’m so excited for you! Soon you will be able to make basic stone handaxes! Isn’t that just awesome?
Of course, behavioural modernity is still far beyond you, but in the next 100 000 years or so, who knows, ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN!

    theoretically this law applies to only one ethnic group, however it was Karzai the president of Afghanistan, who signed it. He usually supports the local feminists (who have been outraged with this law), but it was elections time and there were apparently more men (aka votes) in that ethnic group than feminists in Afghanistan ;)
