And they will know us through the path of our chicken bones.
At least, that is the idea behind a study published this week in the Royal Society's Open Science journal. On it, researchers argue that the vast number of broiler chickens on this planet – around 23 billion of them live at any given time – will be the most able and recognizable legacy of this modern age.
Indeed, as the most abundant countryside bone on the planet, it seems that we should name this period, which is Chicken Yes Yes.
When one species defeats 66 billion gallons each year, you have to keep them. Nuggets. Thighs. Burgers. Wings.
And double everything for the Super Bowl.
Even the US Department of Agriculture had to reform its guidelines in September, enabling companies to kill 175 birds a minute – up from the previous allowance of 140.
The thing about chicken is that you'll play with your life if you eat the bones. So, as researchers suggest, they are depressed in landfills. Imagine haulous bones of bones, over time, becoming fossils.
Someday, when people empty this planet – ready or not – the most obvious life that it will inherit will depend on those fossils.
And future archaeologists will state, "Ahhh .. yes. The people of chicken bones. "
If chicken age was good, it's probably about the 1948 document about "The Chicken of Thefory".

The Texaco produced program, educated the public on "how scientific agriculture changes the life and taste of the chicken." It was an enthusiastic call for Americans to take chicken wings and bite to the future. Cheap chickens, plenty of farming farms could make sure that no-one has ever become a hunger yet. That kind of reinforcing chicken proved to be powerful selling to a generation that still exists from post-war depression.
After considering luxurious food, chicken found its way to the common board. As former President Herbert Hoover promised once in his election campaign, there was "chicken in every pot".
Now, how to fill the bells of the masks that have been chopped by chicken. That's where scientists really get cooked. Over the next 70 years, the chicken became smaller as a living thing and more product, as researchers found ways of making the best of gigni.
As a result, the broiler chicken has been able to disable living in the wild. Battles spend their whole lives moving very little – while artificial daylight always constantly eats them consistently. Even their genes have changed to over-collect their metabolism. They want to eat through time.
As a result, they are already tied up by the time they are 5 weeks old.

This is not the chicken that your great grandmother has pecked around the back of her house. More like a completely different, human product for our palates.
"Modern broiler chickens are biological, genetic and isotopic different to domestic chickens before the middle of the twentieth century," researchers point out in the study. "The global range of modern broilers and biomass management on all other bird species is the product of human intervention."
Or, as Annaliese Griffin writes in Quartzy, "The chickens we eat now, especially in the US, are almost as much as industrial products such as plastic and concrete."
And as a result, the uncompleted chicken bones may scarce be able to take place alongside plastic, such as political symbols that could not stop swinging their fingers.
Future archeologists will remember the chicken bones that we left behind
Researchers suggest that our most permanent legacy will be chicken bones.
