Neolithic Captain Crunch

Scientific American is carrying this article detailing new findings about man's use of grains as a staple food source. By studying a site in Israel called Ohalo II, archeologists have determined humans were using grains as a significant part of their diet about 25,000 years ago, nearly twice the age as was previously thought.

Grain + water and a fairly short amount of time = beer. Moldy grain + water and a fairly short amount of time = ergot beer.

Maybe that's why it took 20,000 more years to develop civilization--we were all sitting around the fire looped out of our gourds
