Can anyone point me towards a graphic representation of modern man, and our foods/developments? I seem to recall in Fat Head the Movie, a little descriptor of modern man's existence represented by a 24 hour clock, and agriculture being introduced about 5 minutes ago, grain/seed oils only maybe 2 minutes, etc....
Or a better descriptor: humanity being represented by a 100yd football field (American Football), at what yard line did agriculture come to be, where did Christianity arise, where was sugar refined, at what point was fire harnessed, where did electricity become our tool, the internet? stone tools, grain/seed oils..... it'd be a very eye opening exercise to mark off a local high school track or football field with pin flags denoting some key steps in man's development. It just might get a few folks off the mark to look into the ideas behind ancestral diet and lifestyle. To physically march off that 100yds and see the changes in our environs, with little to no change in our DNA.

This is probably not exactly what you are looking for, but I like the perspective of this approach: http://andabien.com/html/hominid-timeline.htm. Note that the page scrolls horizontally. You can see how difficult it is to squeeze in all of the milestones at the very end -- our recent history is just such a short period of time!
