    – Humans didn’t evolve from monkeys. They evolved from a certain species of ape, but not all apes.

    – You would be able to tell the time by where the Sun or Moon is in the sky I think

    Many answers to your questions can be found in a long forgotten book called THE ENGLISH DIALECT DICTIONARY.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_English_Dialect_Dictionary

    6 volumes. Thousands of pages. Only available from universities, rare book sellers and in pdf format. (The minutes are ticking away before it’s gone).

    Yes. It seems as though it is merely a ‘dictionary.’ But no, it’s more than a ‘dictionary.’ When you open the book(s) you begin to realize just by perusing the pages… that words and ideas from long ago have been changed… so much so that your reality is quite different than the one during the time it was compiled. More than your technological reality, more than your pop-culture or political reality…

    I suggest you get copies of this before it is ‘disappeared.’ You will learn from it more than some definitions of words you never heard of, you will learn that your humanity has been thoroughly degraded… as Orwell said… as Tolkien said…

    last chance…
