Thor Was Right

“ DNA analysis suggests there was mixing between Native Americans and Polynesians around AD 1200.
The extent of potential contacts between the regions has been a hotly contested area for decades.
In 1947, Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl made a journey by raft from South America to Polynesia to demonstrate the voyage was possible.
Until now, proponents of Native American and Polynesian interaction reasoned that some common cultural elements, such as a similar word used for a common crop, hinted that the two populations had mingled before Europeans settled in South America. “

Still want to know what's up with the 600 AD Chinese pottery found on the Oregon Coast.

And any further info on the St Brendan leather coracle from Ireland to.... somewhere west?

Viking rune stones in Canada and along the Mississippi? river?

The whole Columbus thing makes me roll my eyes.

This is just fascinating news. It is amazing how bold and adventurous we are as a species. Can you imagine looking at the vast Pacific and contemplating going even further out into it in the hopes of discovering something new? Just amazing!

They had no concept of horizon or distances they were looking at. They knew how to sail and they knew how to fish. At least a few of the fortunate ones did.

How 'bout we go sailing and stop just before the edge of the world, and peek over it?

Historically, collectives have always had a majority that said 'There be monsters and demons waiting for us in the great beyond. Let's stay here where it's safe, and if the canaries survive the atmosphere of the unknown, we'll think about it.

Fortunately for those folk, there's always a canary or two to service the experience, even while some among the collective are sayin the equivalent of 'Darwin Award candidtates!' for those who didn't make it.

So what ever concepts explorers did or did not have, they had the balls to go were fraidy cats feared to tread. There hasn't been that much change.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

You make me pull, I'll put you down.
