Stick v. Stone

  1. 1. Which do you think was the first primative weapon, sticks or rocks?

    • A classic wackin' stick
    • A nice hefty rock

So me and a friend got into a debate and we're trying to figure out which was was most likely the first thing used as a weapon, a stick or a rock. I'm partial to rock, but also a nice wacking stick does make sense

Rock does more brute damage, stick requires more intelligence to use to it's full potential.

Modern day Cichlids (fish) have been known to use rocks hurled from their mouth, to drive away other fish.

Deepwater crabs will use bits of coral in their claws to drive away predators.

So given the inverts came first, I'd venture the stick.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

I'd say if your carrying a big firm stick, you won't need to talk

Rock. My instinct is to throw things as missiles rather than pick up a stick and get into close quater combat in which I might get injured.

Probably a rock, but the stick makes more sense.

Sticks are better cause you don't have to reload.

They also have a chance of breaking and they deal less damage

Now you have two sticks!

Infinite weaponry in case you continue breaking them?
