All excellent things! Although at the time we were talking about dogs and cats shaking water off themselves and how effective a move it was, and that flinging one's head back (from a shower or sweating) was similar :)

Part of my thought was that people are so proud of being "civilized" and "modern", and would likely be discomfited at how "primitive" we really are -- and that it's a good thing.

Ah, THAT kind of "primitive" holdover. Gotcha. I figured somebody had been asking why you spin (or weave or something) "when you can just buy yarn in a shop".
