JQ: Draw a timeline of human history. Start from as far back as you have a sense for; if you aren’t sure, start with 8,000 BCE. Fill in as many dates as you may know, considering different eras and inventions, rulers, regions, etc. (For an extra challenge, go back as far as the origins of the Universe!)
