“I have to admit...I didn't catch the details regarding the jaw bones and eye sockets....and that is indeed very interesting.  In the case of human's tendency toward "celebrity worship" as I will call it...who and why are exactly the details I am interested in.  I have personally heard whisperings that the Tibetan people (specifically monks) attribute their methods of sound meditation to having been visited by beings known popularly as the "Hathors"...and others have made these claims as well.  Interesting there is a "Temple of Hathor" in Egypt...  Tom Kenyon, M. A. discusses his experience from his research on his site, http://tomkenyon.com/hathors-archives.  I also heard an interview on the Tom Anderson show of Dr. Richard Hoagland, who literally states that these things are valid and related. http://www.tomandersonshow.comSo...don't know anything for sure, but with all facts, perspectives, and numbers considered, the picture shaping up is interesting.”

“That's fair....just like anything else....garbage in garbage out. If the right methods were used, this could be dealt with, but I agree that we can't just assume an easy fix. Still, I have seen successful indoor systems in place and know that with the right conditions it can be done.”

“You're so funny. I don't OWN a TV...my company MAKES TV. Lol.

Has anyone ever shared with you the perspective that you are snarky and presumptuous, and ultimately unpleasant?”

“Yes.  Usually those who make ridiculous, unfounded, evidence-free claims based on some flight of fancy.  I don't know what it is with people like that, but, for some reason, they just don't like me.”

“Lol. I hadn't asked. That was MY conclusion based on MY observations and thoughts. But I am super glad you have given the final word.”

“You are correct in your assessment. However, this is not a case of head binding since obviously the mandibles are larger and the eye sockets are different. In the case of true head binding, though, the question is who were they trying to emulate and why? And we cannot take that guy's "No." for an answer. (lol)”

“"That was MY conclusion based on MY observations and thoughts."

Obviously.  I didn't think you were sharing someone else's opinion.  Your "observations and thoughts," however, are meaningless without evidence, just like those who believed in mermaids and fairies "based on their observations and thoughts."  Turn off Ancient Aliens and go for a walk.  It's a much more productive use of your time.”

“We should be growing produce in the stores....then it doesn't lose its nutrients and die waiting to be purchased. I mean, they already heat these giant spaces (often with really expansive ceilings) and even plumb it for the misting of all these rotting vegetables. Disney's Epcot Center has a set up. Some smart people in Wyoming just got funded on Kickstarter to grow veggies indoors as a response to an inhospitable climate. Lesson!”

“Mmm, not sure. I tasted a lot of these products and they have far less nutrients than those grown outdoors.”

“I find it hilarious as the headline morphed (kind of like the skulls...ha ha) from "deformed" skulls to "alien" skulls between writers regurgitating the story. This morphing of headline misleads one to think that these skulls weren't human, when in fact, it was due to a well known practice of skull deformation in Meso-American history. Cheap trick to get clicks.

The cool part is that it does tend to point at the people of that time being exposed to beings that did have skulls of that shape, and that this feature was something to emulate. Look at the human tendency toward celebrity worship...case closed.”

Gov. Chris Christie Calls Veteran An 'Idiot' In Shouting Match

“Funny, they showed NONE of the footage of this ex-Seal's outburst that would justify his being removed. I would LOVE to hear that portion of the conversation. Bad editing can change everything. I am curious why his actual questions were not given to us from his own mouth....in light that he "shouted" them over the Governor....I call the Governor full of BS.”

“There wasn't enough fotage to come to any kind of conclusion.”

“He's probably not even an ex-SEAL however I'm sure its being looked into.”

“Maybe I am focused on the wrong part of the story....but brainwashing my daughter to blame objects (i.e. knives and guns) for the violent choices of people disturbs me. I don't care what parts you have or what social role you fall into. I can rip out an esophagus or an eye with my bare manicured hands....or club someone with one of my glorious sculptures (if I don't feel like getting blood under my nails) to successfully harm, kill, or maim another person. Teach discipline. Teach respect for life. Skip the talking points and be real.”
