History? What's that? The world didn't exist before me! But honestly, I think we have to form a true civilization before we can degrade from one, and from what I can tell people have just been making stuff up as they go. Our 'civilization' seems like a patchwork that is wearing thin at the seams (institution on top of institution), I think it's time to design a suit(systemic approach) to present ourselves in, you know, all respectable and stuff. You never know when we'll have visitors. Hell, who cares about the visitors, I just don't want my backyard to be diseased and radioactive, damnit.
