MMM 409: “Pyramid” in Antarctica!

Except it isn’t.  Well, not in the sense of having been built as a structure for human use, it’s a natural formation, noted by explorers as a “pyramid” as far back as AD 1913.

At least that’s what “they” want you to think.  It’s not like anyone not on the right lists is allowed to go check or anything.

MMM 397: Nevalı Çori

This is a temple site not far from Göbekli Tepe in the Anatolia region of modern Turkey.  Organics buried at the site date it to approximately the same time period; active use between 8400 BC and 8100 BC.  Structurally, it has much in common with Göbekli Tepe, stone pile walls, some large standing stones, and some carved walls.

Temple area.

MMM 389: Göbekli Tepe

This is the mother of all archaeological crackpot magnets.  Not because of its size (though the site is large) or its grand height (it was buried for almost 10,000 years), but because radio-carbon dating gave us reliable estimates of the age of its construction (~10k BC at the latest) and the time at which it was buried under sand and sediment (~ 8000 BC).  We don’t know why it was buried, if it was deliberate human activity or if some catastrophic event.  The age of its founding is a serious shift for anthropology, because it either implies that hunter-gatherers could (and would) build enormous temple structures, or that dawn of agriculture was a at least a full 2 millennia earlier than is currently believed.

Thorsday Filler – Liars Abound

“”The Truth Behind Pathological and Compulsive Liars

We all lie, but some people take it to extremes, destroying careers and relationships in the process.””

The lying going on is stupefying. Normally we would blame it on mare – ‘cuz you know – whore, but the current level is Soviet era propaganda level lying, so she’s off the hoof.

Holy Moly how in the universe can anyone with an IQ over 60 actually believe any of the crap that’s coming out of DC and the denizens thereof?

November 28th is Head Day – POS Observances

That may be a somewhat concatenated  version of an amazing international day of ponderous ponderings… I’ll let you decide.

Other amazing factoids about November 28th:

1) a metric buttload of people we’ve never heard of were born this day in history

&

2) a surprising number of people we’ve never heard of, or really gave two craps about drew their last breath – including jeffrey dahmer who interestingly enough kept heads in his refrigerator – coincidence or a TRUE Believer in the Observance of Head Day…. you be the judge.
