“Obviously the TSA agent on duty doesn't see too many 15 year old girls. This kid is demurely dressed in comparison to most or the average 14-17 year old. I am around alot of girls this age and it is shocking how they dress ! Its borderline indecent exposure. BUT thats "the style" and all of them dress that way. Not a few. So I guess until the fads or styles change some this agent needs to grin and "bare" it ? HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA !”

“Randomly select a section of the country that contains 8 million people living on top of one another and within that 8 million you'll get about 440 shootings too. Its a concentration of people in close proximity- So don't step on my new sneakers or I'll kill you and probably be justified by my peer group for the homicide.”

“Well, actually, finding trees and a lake on Mars would mean there was oxygen. Since there isn't oxygen on Mars, we won't be finding a lake or trees.”

“Here's the thing ! When these atricious attacks happen the attackers say : " This is for the bombs that fall and kill children in attacks against terrorists strongholds" This may be true but A) THE ATTACKS ARE A RESPONSE TO A TERRORIST FIRST STRIKE THAT HAS TO BE SUPRESSED...B) THEY HIDE AMONG CIVILIANS ! We don't just wake up one morning and scramble a few jets to go kill children ! The next thing you hear is "You cannot condem a whole religion - a peaceful religion for a few extreme individuals" So the exrteme individual acts on their own and, hey there's nothing they can do about it , Its not Islam's fault.

So here's what we do. We take "BOOMER" out of Holy Loch Scotland, head on over to the most radical islamic stronghold and microwave it right off the globe ! Then say we are launching an investigation as to who did this because WE DONT KNOW. We wait a few days and say that a "RADICAL EXTREMEIST AMERICAN GROUP" cliamed responsibility for it, lets call them the "Ethan Allen Boys ! " Somehow they got ahold of a Nulear Sub, then you say : " Americans are a Peaceful Group" & '' YOU CAN'T CONDEM A WHOLE NATION FOR THE ACTIONS OF AN EXTREME FEW !"”

“Obviously the guy who told him to run at the elephant has done it before and knew the elaphant's reaction would be flight. Its what all animals do. I don't see any outrageous harm here. They weren't poachers or didn't cause the animal any harm, conversly kept it away from the road whcih may be a good thing. The flip side of this would have been if there was a baby around, perhaps lieing in the grass out of sight. The guy/s would have been killed.”

“Here's what I don't understand.Who finds these things ? How ? You are pushing a bulldozer and you see bones in a hunk of dirt ? Its impossible. Its almost like an archeoligist is standing there watching each shovel-full. Another thing. Ancient people or any people for that matter -even 150-200 years ago buried people in the ground -wherever! They are adding a lane to a very crowded road in my town and I'm betteing they will find something since the area was settled over 350 years ago and the origional road was THE ROAD connecting what was then farmland to a major river. Can't wait until the halt construction to dig up some revolutionary war soldier or something !”

rothhammer1 on May 15, 2013 at 00:39:53

“If such thing is found, yes. It's called preservation, and yes there are archaeologists at most major building sites during excavation these days.”

logistrickery on May 14, 2013 at 07:44:34

“Every development in the US (and many other countries) has archaeological monitors who watch the bulldozers as they are clearing the soil. In the US this is done according to local, state and federal rules. If a developer does not employ professionals to keep an eye out for cultural deposits, they risk losing permits. These archaeologists are employed by specialist companies who contract work out to developers, sometimes as a consortium with environmental and other specialist consultants.

The archaeological monitors first assess whether anything is known about the location from historical sources or earlier archaeological work (a desk-based assessment), They follow this up with a walking survey to see if anything can be seen on the ground before digging. Then they stand by the bulldozers and make sure nothing is getting destroyed. Based on what, if anything, is found when the soil is removed, they will continue excavations up to a certain extent as the law requires. Then they publish the results in some form.

Worst-case scenario for a developer is that they find a site of supreme importance, which stops the development from happening. This is rare but necessary in some cases.

There's a lot that goes on before the developers ever see a hole in the ground. But many of the really unexpected discoveries come from this developer-funded archaeology. University researchers get answers to questions that they ask, but don't often get big surprises.

I agree, I can't wait until development unearths something exciting like this again!”

“Yes you see bones in a hunk of dirt,if you had ever operated excavating equipment you might understand,its kind of like driving a car, you have to pay attention to what you are doing.”

“I was 226 pounds and had a heart attack at 40. I am now 226 pounds at 53. I have been working out EVERY DAY for the last 13 years ! LITERALLY ! I TAKE 1 DAY OF PER WEEK but on that day usually do something to compensate for the missed work out. I run 5-6-8 miles, I bench 240 lbs about 250 times or work with smaller weights for 1 1/2 hours on non-running days. I do it on vacation, holidays, do not miss! Feel guilty if I miss a day. If my goal was 6 miles that day and I get interrupted with 1/4 mile to go, I'll go back and do it that night ! Fanatic ? Or what ? My family gets up and has breakfast while they hear the treadmill going !
In fact I just got off the treadmill after 6 miles as I write this ! I have a full gym in my basement ! WHY.................THEN AM I 226 POUNDS -JUST LIKE 13 YEARS AGO ? I will not stop because I dont want to EVER be in that Cath.Lab again. I try to take weeks off now and then but usually make it 2-3 days then go make up for it.”
