this day that year


Some how the thought of the Stone Age caught my mind on my way to office yesterday. Alright, dont think that I am watching too much of history channel these days :P All I do is work, cook, eat and sleep :) All evening I thought of what would we call our present age if it was to sound like the Stone age and guess what I came up with :P


The Stone Age



[i] The term "Stone Age" was used by archaeologists to designate the vast pre-metallurgic period whose stone tools survived far more widely than tools made from other (softer) materials.
 
[ii] It is the first age in the three-age system.

[iii] Old Stone Age is the earliest period of human development and the longest phase of mankind’s history.

The Stoned Age


[i] The term "Stoned Age" is used by dopiests to designate the vast post-cannabis period whose smoke clouds survived far more than the smokers.

[ii] I wish it is not the first age in another three-age system.

[iii] With the implications seen, Stoned Age looks like it is going to be the earliest period of human decline and the shortest phase of mankind’s history.
