Science? Still Cool

Prehistoric Bird-Bone Flute Unearthed -- From Discovery News (online)

A bird-bone flute unearthed in a German cave was carved some 35,000 years ago and is the oldest handcrafted musical instrument yet discovered, archaeologists say, offering the latest evidence that early modern humans in Europe had established a complex and creative culture.

So what I wonder is, did the flutist's playing drive her mother to distraction?
