The Art of Darkness

Pulling the Cart or On the Cart?

We’re nearly a decade into the 21st Century (and still no flying cars), so here’s something to muse on today: Would you have survived the Middle Ages?

Twenty Sided pondered this question a while back, and it was interesting to see how many of the commenters wouldn’t have made it without modern medicine.

In my particular case, assuming that my father hadn’t died of that burst appendix at age six, I’d have probably made it to adulthood. Unfortunately, I’d most likely have died during childbirth. Bummer.

How about you?
