i love the dildo one! it should have been a bit obvious though, men have been masturbating since the dawn of time, so of course women have too.

I usually find these `You think you know, but you don`t` lists pretty patronising. Liked this one though!

The dildo is wrong, Cucumbers/Carrots have been around before even 28,000 BCE.
Note: If you move in with a pretty but suspiciously single girl, DO NOT eat that cucumber in the fridge.

Also, the Computer one is wrong. Cracked apparently forgot the Antikythera device, a mechanical device dated around 100-150 BCE.
Of course, there is the Abacus if you consider it a calculator, which has been around longer then Mesopotamia, and is still used to this day.

"archaeologists regularly discover ancient dildos but are reluctant to label them as such, probably because they don`t want to be known as "that guy that keeps discovering dildos--you know, Indiana Dongs."

AHAHAHAHAHA

The maths explainations for that Nim game explain how it`s impossible to win that java version. Thats just pointless.
