    Lightning can cause fires, I don't think humans invented it.

    Whatever it was, it started with: "Hold my beer and watch this!".

    Maybe one was trying to drill a hole in a piece of wood by spinning a stick with his/her hands, and the friction of the stick caused smoke and ember.

    Who knows, maybe some guy a long time ago was really bored and started to shape a stone with another stone that had flint in them, over some dried leaves, thus starting the first man made fire and the first hot foot. Really, I am just guessing. :supergrin:

    KNOW your history...It was before he invented the internet, but he didn't say anything because it contributed to global warming, so he invented electricity to run appliances.

    You are right, of course.

    I stand corrected.

    I like where you are going with this, and I am pretty sure that Okie would approve as well since it involves Taco Bell.

    I guess long before GT, people were bored then too. Some cavemen (cavepeople?) probably rubbed sticks together out of boredom. If GT were around then, the cavepeople would have another outlet for their boredom and fire may have never been invented/discovered. Then again, with no fire, there would be no firearms and no GT.

    What does being from NJ have to do with anything?

    He was saying that New Jersey sucks, and you're from New Jersey, so ipso facto, you suck. :whistling:

    I'm not saying that about either Jersey or you...just pointing out what he meant by his comment. :supergrin:

    Some of the best people anywhere come from New Jersey. Buzz Aldrin, Abbott AND Costello, Shaquille O'Neal, Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, Meryl Streep, John Travolta, and of course, me.
