Your Humbling Moment of the Day

Those Ancient Romans...they sure were smart.  Inventing fast-curing cement, pluming, central heating, scissors, aqueducts, and now we find out they invented the utility knife?!?!  Our contemporary culture with it's computers and Blackberries... pah! We've got nothing on those Romans. 


Seriously, just LOOK at this thing. It was made between 200 - 300 A.D. ! ! !   If that doesn't humble you, we don't know what will.

An ancient version of the Leatherman Super Tool we wish we had in our purse for daily use..it's got all the cutlery you need to survive today's hectic life in style. 

Check out more at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England.
