At least it isn’t a dinosaur.
Next Stage – making Wood Block carvings of strange sights in the sky. Oh! Wait… that would be 1561 over Nuremberg! Silly me! (Grin!)
That animal isn’t just pulling a rock!
Harlan Ellison’s ancestor…
Cavemen were before the Vikings.
Cavemen were before rational (I think, therefore I am) philosophy, yet the comment maker waxes philosophically.
You can’t put Descartes before the Norse.
It came to pass and passed on.
What did the first horse hitched to a wagon think? Horses may have had a similar discussion.
I always figured that genre would be funnier if it were called “Science Friction”… and then I look at that wheel with no provision for any kind of bearing…
The next wall drawing: a Studebaker Commander!
(sigh) Trying to convince another Flat-Earther.
“Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.”
Actually this is the first artist inducted by the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. Kelly Freas was the second. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelly_Freas
Shouldn’t the cart be before the horse?
Anyone remember “Mute Inglorious Tam”? http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/title.cgi?50850
I can see this really happening. Makes you wonder just what all we look at today and say that will never happen and some day it does. I would have never thought this whole virus mess could happen either but here we are.
“That will never fly.”
And the first critic.
The Nautil-ass shall travel 20 Leagues over the land, Its five year mission, to explore strange new realms, to seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before.
There are caveman drawings of flying saucers. Out in the desert of Peru there are 100’s of giant drawings you have to see from above to appreciate. They were drawn between 600bc and 200bc. One in particular is a very accurate drawing of a dude in a spacesuit. Go figure.
Boots? Are they wearing boots? Surely somebody figured out pants before they figured out boots.
Where are my flying wagons?
The real Chariot of the Gods!
Sci-fi: The mythology of modern technology.(Ursula K. Le Guin)
How come they get a flying car?
Reminds me of the great Rita Rudner. She said that she reads recipe books like science fiction. When she finished she says, “That’s never going to happen.”
That’s putting the cart before the horse.
with the world we have now I’ve seen more and more sci-fi becoming reality. Some of it good some of it scary
His artwork set tongues wagon.
Next thing, you’ll be telling me that some orange haired guy is our leader.
Were it not for this guy, Steven Wright would have had to donate his body to regular science.
It’s not the person who came up with the wheel who’s the big hero… it’s the person who came up with the axle.
Does this mean that Firestone and Goodyear owe royalties to the ancestors of that caveman?
A prehistoric Sheldon…
inventions have to start somewhere.
Oddly enough , I think he did this one already, back in the 90s. I only remember because I had a clipping of it on my desk in high school.
This concept is absolutely valid! Sci-fi got us some of our coolest inventions. I.e., Arthur C. Clarke’s satellites.
As Arthur C. Clarke once wrote – Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
The problem was finding a horse. Really, hook one of those onto a mammoth? Good luck.
No comments about a kid living in the back of his Mom’s cave?
I don’t believe in astrology; I’m a ARIES and we’re skeptical
