A Snippet of a Mesopotamian Invention

19 Oct

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.

The bad news is that there is nothing in the lyrics pertaining to Mesopotamia, just the Egyptian Pyramids. The good news is that in the midst of the flashing images there is one of a Mesopotamian and most crucial invention, a contribution second only in importance to writing: the wheel.

Here is a video of the The Big Bang Theory‘s intro song by the Barenaked Ladies. Can you catch the image of the wheel? (Hint: It’s in the first 12 seconds.)
