Thanks for the clarification. I was always under the impression they were Anasazi pots, used to cook neighbors, rather then visitors' pots used to cook Anasazi.
In any case, I much prefer to go to Grandma's for holiday dinners, than to have Grandma for dinner.
Oh, you can find live cannibals even on Borneo, the Dayaks show up every couple years and eat their Madurese neighbors, frying up their faces and arms and hands in local marketplaces, and motorcycling their heads around on pikes in the tract housing developments.
Nominally, these Dayaks are Christian, but it's tough on them and in the end, they always backslide into the old ways every couple years. You can take the Christian out of the cannibal but you can't take the cannibal out of the Christian.
Professor Mike Baillie believes it was a comet fragment(s) that brought on the Dark Ages.
That sounds like cannibals to me. They're cannibals. No liberal excuse-making and naysaying is going to change my mind about this. They ate some British tourists and that's all I need to know about whether I like them or not. They eat people! They're cannibals!
I don't know the details but, I must correct your statement in the name of Christ. There is no more cannibal left in the Christian but, there may well be cannibals amongst the Christians.
They already are doing that now, thanks to the high value of the Euro currency. Europeans are flocking to resorts in Florida in record numbers because they realize their currency can go a long way here in the USA.
Relax, you're too skinny!
NOT meant that way!!! I honestly did wonder about them being made extinct by this because they've always intrigued me, but I wasn't aware of the rare tribes. I am very sad about the horrendous loss of life, human and otherwise, and I'm sorry you thought I meant otherwise.
Wow. Reducing people groups before I expected it. Wow.
Bump for later!
Indonesia is also home to the famous Toba supervolcano, one that last erupted about 75,000 years ago. Some anthropologists who have studied mitochondrial DNA passing through human generations note that there was a drastic drop in the number of mitocondrial strains in humans around 75,000 to 74,000 years ago, closely matching the last major eruption of Toba. This meant that the Toba eruption may have come very close to wiping out the human race because of Toba's eruption effects worldwide.
Ahhhh. Not toooo surprised though I thought it had been successfully repressed.
I have very similar strong feelings.
Though I realize that there's bad apples in every culture.
And in this case, especially in the KJV
When, in the last 6000 years, has an animal species ever been wiped out by "natural" phenomenon?
I hope you keep watching those stats.
I hope you have a huge capacity to be honest with yourself when they dramatically change.
Wellllllllllll, the cannibals
would be quite happy to
lay him on for dinner!
Sounds great to me.
Still a huge problem throughout the region.
The Caribbeans is another dangerous place to go.
On my vacations I always go back to our Mother continent - the mother of civilizations - Europe.
Unfortunate, but true.
dangerous? in the winter? perhaps during hurricane season, but how is the carribean dangerous?
"I'm not gonna weep for the inhabitants of the Nicobar islands - there have been some sad stories about Western tourists going there and not coming back. Some areas have always been sealed off."
They're cannibals and so they eat them. That's why they never return.
Not to mention volcanos, tropical storms, ice ages etc, that were all more devestation than this quake. The one in Alaska in 1964 for instance was 9.2 just to name one. Not the end of the world. As much as I believe in a creator I do not believe the world is up for destruction, it will die a natural death 4 billion years from now when the sun fails.
"Just my taste, I guess."
No, it's because as the old saaying goes: Birds of a feather flock together.
When in Rome do as the Romans do. Also don't forget to dress, act and be polite to Europeans and they may accept you for your temporary stay, despite not being one of them.
"I love them all."
Good! I hope you marry one of them and move there.
And by the way, Thailand is owned by Thai people, not supercilious, fat, unsmiling eurotrash. I like Thais and pity them for all the unpleasable, unhappy, unsmiling, highly demanding, self-centered, obnoxious, uncultured German package tourists travelling in big groups they must put up with.
In the news, fault is tossed around politically while ignoring a fault in the Earth's crust.
"Once again, we are a very changed world."
Changed world? In what ways?
I haven't changed a bit because of this tragedy.
This is not the first nor will it be the last tragedy.
I don't need to be married to someone in order to love them. This is a basic fact that many eurotrash cannot undertand. That is why they are so unpleasant to anyone they don't happen to be married to. No wonder they go Nazi, worry about lebesraum and blow each other up every century or so.
different culture. Different lands.
Go at your own risk.
Although given their birthrates, I doubt they love even the people they are married to, either.
You're being very kind to your own people. That's understandable.
'64 was a HARPS gone wrong.
You keep repeating yourself and haven't addressed the issues that I've raised. Your anti- Christian European hatred is also blatantly showing. You need some PC deprogramming.
If I had to choose between Asians and Mooselimbs, I'd pick Asians. They also had ancient civilizations, they didn't stay stuck in the Dark Ages, and they are in general cool people. As far as cannibals go, well, you are who you eat.
I'd no idea so many westerners visited that part of the world...
This is happening in the Northern Hemisphere primarily.
I've had a rather provincial view of the southern hemisphere til now.
Look at this.....this is just STUNNING:

Just incredible...and very close up shots of what happened...look at the swirling!
Whoah! I've followed this whole thread and been quite delighted at the mix of serious, drastic, jovial, cutting, etc. and didn't see that coming. If it's about America, I am the first one standing in the "this is how it is and these are the rules of our society if you want in" line but, truth stands above America, for she can err. Goodness is good. America has always been about improvement when corrected. That's how we got here! KF and everyone on this thread, in speaking positively about SEAsia, has spoken about those things to which all freedom loving people strive. To classify according to the sins of the fathers is none such thing as has any patriot ever approved; and I am tired of talking to you.
Unless I'm mistaken, the Sentinelese are the last completely isolated tribe in the world. When they say "all efforts at initiating contact have proved unsuccessful" they mean it. We don't even know what they call themselves. I guess we'll never know now..
The tsunami waves moved east and west from the earthquake, and Bangladesh was almost directly to the north so it was spared.
I like tribes. But I'm more interested in Germanic and Gothic ones.
This earthquate occurred closer to a much larger, by several orders of magnitude, and potentially more dangerous "super" volcano TOBA. The good news is, it's been quiet for the last 75,000 years.
Anoter quake with magitude 6.2 at Nicobar Islands http://earthquake.usgs.gov/recenteqsww/Quakes/ussqal.htm 2 hours ago, and many more earlier http://earthquake.usgs.gov/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.html
"Always remember that one man's meat is another man's poi, son."
...'64 was a HARPS gone wrong......
Coast-to-coast said the Great Sumatran quake was 28 minutes away from being exactly one year from the BAMM, Iran earthquake and implying that they both were HAARP. (Now where's my tinfoil at?)
