Would you want to live during the Jurassic period?

My husband and I went to Jurassic World this weekend.  Terrific show and about as exciting as a movie could but, but would I want to live during the Jurassic period?  Heck no!  I love my amenities.  Camping to me is finding the nearest hotel in the locale of the area I want to visit.  Nothing better than taking a nice hot bath after a day of exploring - and I certainly don't want to get eaten by the park attractions.  I can't imagine running into one of these during a stroll through the park. (The guy - maybe!)

 When I was researching my Riley's Journey series, I was so impressed by the determination of early man to survive in a perilous environment.  I wouldn't have made a good "early man" or "early woman" as the case may be.  I can clean a fish when the need arises, but catching and cleaning anything beyond that leaves me with the shudders.  I even feel bad catching a fish as I ask myself do I really need to eat that and even though I am no hypocrite, I pretend meat grows on trees.

Nope!  Give me my stove, my refrigerator, my TV, my Kindle, all the things I appreciate.  I wouldn't make it back then other than as a tasty treat for some hungry predator - not my idea of a good time.

Step back 40,000 years.
