Remember - that if you are an idiot, try not to use twitter, because then everyone will find out.
But then again, if you are that stupid, it may not occur to you what the effects of social media are... It's fast, viral, real-time and can be exploited.
For those who are still clueless as to why the Olympics may have taken place 3000 years ago... here is a quick lesson (based on it being Aug 2012)
Once upon a time ago the earth happened. Somehow. I don't really know how exactly, so don't ask me.
Anyway it's mother fucking old. 4.54 billion years old to be precise, according to evidence from radiometric age dating of meteorite material.
We also had these things called DINOSAURS!!!
Waaay before your dad.
About 230 million years to about 65 million years ago...
And Emily Barrow - you absolute genius; anatomically modern humans have existed for 200,000 years... FYI
You're probably scratching your little head, thinking...
Why is it not the Year 4.54 billion?... But instead it's Year 2012?
You may have heard of this guy named Jesus (he's kind of a big deal), and when he was born, we started from 1 (again) i.e. Annus Domini, or year of the lord.
So our year today is 2012 years since his birth... or 2012 AD.
All years previous to that is not written as -1 AD, which I know would kind of make sense. But instead we use the term BC (Before Christ) to define that period.
