Three alter-egos converge as (1.) Bob Perkins the researcher, (2.) Professor William Robert Perkins the mad scientist, and (3.) Atlatl Bob the hunter, give a humorous and multi-faceted account of mankinds ascendant path to the top of the food chain. Though seemingly primitive, the Atlatl and Dart System, used by humans in pre-historic times, is remarkably complex in its design. With a minimum of effort, the atlatl hurtles darts at speeds close to 100 miles per hour. In turn, this behavior speaks volumes about the sustainable ingenuity of the hunter-gatherer age. In our present age of taxes, organized religion, and agriculture, perhaps there are still important lessons that can be derived from our far distant relatives.
