For some observers, these claims are extravagant enough to require substantially more evidence. Jon Erlandson is an anthropologist at the University of Oregon who specializes in researching the earliest inhabitants of North America’s Pacific Coast.
His recent studies have focused on camps and tool-making sites on the Channel Islands that date back as much as 12,000 years, traces of seafaring people who were some of the first occupants of southern California.
But due to political correctness, they cancelled The Kangaroo Court in 1982.
One guy was pulled up for having a reputation of dating a lot of girls.
They blindfolded him, and told him that they would be bringing a mystery girl out, and that he would have to kiss her. He grabbed her by the arms and laid a full-on open-mouth tongue-tickling kiss.
“The bones and several teeth show clear signs of having been deliberately broken by humans with manual dexterity and experiential knowledge,” said Holen, in the museum’s press statement.
“This breakage pattern has also been observed at mammoth fossil sites in Kansas and Nebraska, where alternative explanations such as geological forces or gnawing by carnivores have been ruled out.” Dr.
A new analysis of those bones concludes that the mastodon was butchered by humans.
But it adds that the the butchering took place at an astonishing time: 130,000 years ago — well more than a hundred millennia before humans are thought to have arrived in North America.
“This discovery is rewriting our understanding of when humans reached the New World,” said Judy Gradwohl, president and CEO of the San Diego Natural History Museum, in a statement to the press.
“The evidence we found at this site indicates that some hominin species was living in North America 115,000 years earlier than previously thought.
Its findings include two main clusters of mastodon bone fragments that bear spiral fractures and shattered teeth, indicating, the team says, that the breaks occurred when the material was still fresh.
Among the broken remains were found five large cobbles that appear to bear patterns of use-wear, and which the team postulates were used to break the bones open to access the calorie-rich marrow.
Valley High had the reputation of being the roughest high school in the city, and probably among the roughest county-wide. I remember one black guy getting pounded to a pulp by a gang of Samoans.
