Worth an hour for anyone wth dogs. I'm still stunned that they managed to get from a pretty much wild fox to a more or less domesticated animal in three generations.

@CynicalGamer-- They later explained that dogs were a huge boost for our hunter/gatherer societies, and that they made us vastly more efficient in killing game. This boost allowed us the breathing room to advance our civilization in terms of farming technology, and eventually helped produce a sedentary lifestyle.

Dogs can be summed up by, "It's BACON!"

Ok, they lost me at "without dog domestication, civilization just would not have been possible."

Please tell me he extrapolates on this insane comment and explains it without using shock and awe to grab our attention.
