    The world's first flower? In the last years, perhaps nothing about daily life has changed more than the commute. What's on it may surprise you. Both paleontologists studying the fossils of our ancestors and anthropologists documenting the diets of indigenous people today say the picture is a bit more complicated. Virtually every nonmeat food we eat starts as a flowering plant, while the meats, milk, and eggs we consume come from livestock fattened on grains—flowering plants.

    The festival is being postponed until we can further assess if and when we are able to create the high-quality experience we envisioned. It is a dual pattern of disaster and opportunity that has repeated itself after many impact events in Earth's history. Digesting a higher quality diet and less bulky plant fiber would have allowed these humans to have much smaller guts. We know we are passing through their world as through a museum, for they were here long before we arrived and may well remain long after we are gone. It wasn't like a hundred million years or ten millions years.
