If you could show one item/object to a caveman in this modern world, what would it be?

Asked by ucme (50031points) July 8th, 2011

I was watching Night at the Museum the other day with my kids & my daughter asked me this very question, she’s inquisitive like that.
For those familiar with the movie, there’s a scene where Stiller gives the cavemen a lighter. Naturally they’re fascinated with the notion of fire, particularly from such an unusual (to them) source. So, with that in mind, what modern day item/object would you reveal that would grab “caveboy’s” attention? Keep it clean….ish & you may of course be as humorous as you wish

My laptop and logitech speakers pumping out some tribal techno.

EDIT: Maybe a hunting knife (rambo style)

A Holy Bible to teach them (Ancient people lack some motivating-fantasy). And a gun, so that they could learn to make another for better hunting quality.

An iPhone 4. He’ll be amazed at what you can do with the thing.
