About This Quiz

Does the modern world leave you feeling overwhelmed and uninspired? Do you yearn for the next time you can head out to camp in the wilderness? Does being asked to put your feelings into words make you want to scream and run away? If you answered yes to the previous questions, there's a good chance that you might be a true caveman.

While the concept of the caveman has often been featured in popular culture, appearing regularly in cartoons, commercials and comic strips, the portrayals of Neanderthal life are often filled with inaccuracies. From influences like "The Flintstones," we have this concept that early man existed alongside the dinosaurs and that they lived in caves to protect themselves from the gigantic lizards. The only problem is that early man and the dinosaurs are separated by about 66 million years. That being said, if you are a true caveman, the last paragraph has bored you, and we need to get your attention again.

Hey, check out that woolly mammoth!

We can see that your attention is fading, and it seems clear that we need to keep things moving. Think of it this way, the sooner you get the answer to this quiz, the sooner you can get back to grilling the meat from the big hunt.
