Over the last 6 months or so I have returned from my last adventure and attempted to settle in to a normal job for a 27 year old male from the USA. The reality of most business jobs these days is that you spend the majority of your time in front of a computer screen. I can tell you that I spend 40+ hours a week providing internet marketing services and nearly all of it is spent staring at a computer monitor. This type of behavior is normal in our society, but it always make me wonder what a caveman would think of this strange behavior. For an outside observer who’s unfamiliar with a computer, a desk job would appear to be the strangest occupation in the world. A human literally sits for unbelievably long periods of time and virtually moves nothing but his fingers and wrists! For a caveman who is used to exerting himself physically everyday doing activities such as hunting buffaloes on the plains, it would seem outrageous! While there is significant financial reward with sitting in an office and you can afford a nice house, car and all kinds of other awesome things, I wonder if the caveman would think the sacrifice would be worth the reward??
If he had to choose between a simple life hunting buffaloes on the plains with his buddies or working 40 hours a week on the computer to support a comfortable lifestyle which would he chose?
