There is no denying that Mesopotamia was a land where a lot of big, crucial things to the advancement of mankind took place.
That’s why when I was watching a rerun of The Big Bang Theory one evening, and as the intro song played, curiosity struck me about whether it mentioned anything about the cradle of civilization.
The song is so fast, I thought maybe I was missing something about Mesopotamia, so I looked and listened closely.
