View Full Version : Oldest Profession?

I will note that the colloquial "world's oldest profession" is practiced outside the human species and therefore is probably older than astronomy. I still did find the reference amusing.

Did you have a link, or are you talking with someone in there?

In Death From the Skies!, on page 2. I just got it today, and that's about the first thing I noticed.

O, sorry. I haven't memorized it yet. Wait till page three, when he says "And I have no doubt whatsoever that astronomy can kill us."
He backs off, and re-phrases, but strong stuff. Taking on the mantle of World's Oldest Profession must be daunting.

Yeah, I should have specified which book I was talking about. However, being as how I put it in this section, I thought it clear that I was referring to one of 'em. My mistake.

No problem! I probably should've been able to figure it out. But page numbers are good too.

I though it was flint-knapping.
