I don't think that's what she's saying--at least from the second quoted paragraph.

It strikes me as a testable hypothesis. There have got to be plenty of societies that still use the primitive eating methods the anthropologist describes.

The menu itself seems odd to modern diners, as half the offerings were meat and the other half sweets... But where are the vegetables and bread?

We had a more civilized and refined cuisine back then before all these "health food" and "living past forty" fads developed.

Yes, but subsequent research showed that even anonymity is optional to create a GIF. This phenomenon became clear when sites began requiring people to log in with Facebook to leave nasty comments.

We've got opposable thumbs and a large brain, but sometimes I think that humanity got short-changed by evolution.

Thank you for your feedback.

I often post offbeat works of art, frequently with great success. This piece, for example, did pretty well. Can you offer any specific criteria for distinguishing between the artistic and the banal?

I can imagine that happening, too. When I decided to propose to my wife, I planned a grand, complex and romantic scene at a particular spot in a particular garden that was special to her. But I couldn't get our schedules to mesh and actually annoyed her in my efforts to do so.

Finally I said to myself, "Enough! I'm going to do this today!" So I drove to her workplace as she was closing up. We sat by the alligator pond nearby and ate cheesecake that I had purchased from Starbucks. Then I popped the question. It wasn't a movie-worthy gesture, but it was successful.
