Obviously, the camera wasn't around in 1 million B.C., which makes this stone carving all the more amazing. Just look at the fine details of shadow and color.
And not only is Raquel's name in English, but the carver even knew the year (sadly, months had not been invented yet).
So let's jump ahead in time to a few weeks ago.
Oh wait. Sorry.
My obnoxious fact-checker has informed me that:
1) Ms. Welsh was in "One million B.C." ... the movie, not the year.
2) That movie was made almost a half-century ago in 1966.
2) Raquel is not 1,002,014 years old, but only a scant 73.
Hopefully, you're not too disappointed with this post.
