yes life was tough, but there was something so romantic about them looking at the moon and the vast unexplored nature of the world and sense of wonder and awe.
I think they worried more about getting their next meal and survival than being in awe about the wonders of the unexplored world and universe.
Myself, I am very happy about taking the next meal completely for granted, as well as living in comfortable surroundings with a big screen TV and all other modern luxuries. Furthermore, I am quite happy about there being an infrastructure that allows for travel and further experiences. On top of that, I'm REALLY happy about health studios, doctors and dentists, as these will allow me to not only outlive three generations worth of cavemen, but (barring catastrophic accident or incurable disease) stay healthy enough to enjoy life to the fullest for all of that time.
Also, I am quite happy the world and our immediate part of space is explored, at least for the most part. There still remains so much unexplored out there to be in awe at that it boggles the mind.
I wouldn't even want to live 80 years ago, let lone 80,000.Tesla was robbed!
You can appear on the show Naked and Afraid and have a similar experience to 80,000 years ago.
