Egypt discovers what may be oldest human footprint

It was found between the world's oldest television set and the oldest remote control.

Egyptian archaeologists have found what they said could be the oldest human footprint in history in the country's western desert, the Arab country's antiquities' chief said on Monday.

It's kind of funny how the oldest relics are found in the region of the planet that has not really aged with the rest of us.

This could go back about two million years," said Zahi Hawass, the secretary general of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities. "It could be the most important discovery in Egypt," he told Reuters.

Good to know that even back then, two million years ago, people still accidentally stepped in mud.

Archaeologists found the footprint, imprinted on mud and then hardened into rock, while exploring a prehistoric site in Siwa, a desert oasis.

Well, I guess I'll go outside and go find some mud and step around in it with my fake dragon feet. It'll take awhile but it'll be funny in about a million years.

I'll try to stay around to laugh at them - no promises though man.
