  1. Of course, you're right. Not long ago, when one was sick and weak, we'd bleed them. That was BS too.
  2. As in shoot or no shoot? Or do you speak of how high on your pucker factor things ratchet up? 'Cause they can ratchet up pretty fast, and pretty tight!
  3. Theoretically, they should work if you consider only superficial principles - but that's how it's supposed to work in a perfect laboratory controlled environment - If these methods were so reliable, it would be a simple manner to cross check the various methods with others that overlap the date set. And they're all over the map. The variances within those dating methods - one might as well ask a third grader to pick some numbers. As far as that migration foolishness - I've spent some real time in every corner of Alaska one wishes to mention. During an "Ice Age," or especially during the last Ice Age - Alaska wasn't even covered in ice! It missed most of Alaska! They seem to think it's a piece of cake walking hundreds and hundreds of miles without liquid water, without cover, without food, and mostly - without a map. Why would anyone, or anything EVER go into more and more ice - and into harsher and harsher conditions - when there's no draw - no destination? These "experts" are uninformed, inexperienced, and grasping at the impossible to push a narrative.
  4. And folks wonder why I discount paleoanthropology. It used to be 10,000 years ago. Then it moved to 15,000 years ago as they got with paleoclimatologists. But in South America, they found ruins and evidence that pushed it to 30,000 years ago - kicking and screaming the whole way. And I would draw criticism when I'd mention the Native Americans/American Indians had pushed off those before them. Now? A hundred thousand years ago? Next thing, the crappy "Out of Africa" narrative will be blown out of the water.
  5. No fire. Maybe they know an old trick to keep a baby happy and stop crying. You simply put a cantankerous baby lengthwise on your arm, kind of like you were going to let the little feller "fly" like Superman. They'll shut up immediately - and start taking in everything in front of them. Spread your hand across their chest, angle them up about 15-30 degrees, and that's how you can keep one quiet. Amazed at the number of parents who don't know that trick.
  6. Oh, that was clever. Which goes directly to my point. You're trying to point a kerosene lantern.
  7. I don't think I've ever seen such misinformed, mistaken assumptions and criteria for the existence of these things. I don't understand the time spent arguing in circles, simply because those who are skeptical - and then go so far as to determine their own personal standards of what constitutes "proof" - on the existence of something they discount. Wolverines. Bears. Cougars. Possums. Raccoons. Wolves. All caught on camera, all have something in common. One, big, commonality. A shared characteristic. And this shared characteristic or commonality is what you base the "what constitutes proof" argument on? That's pretty simple-minded. That's lazy. More to the point - that's just stupid.
  8. Well said. Folks are using the wrong things to hunt the wrong things, with assumptions and approaches that are just wrong. Their results are thus predictable - and provide verification of my statement.
  9. Aye, Triton IS one of the good guys, and DOES share some good information. And Triton - thanks for sharing. Good hunting.
  10. BF hunter enters wood with long sleeves on, comes out with short sleeves - he saw one;.
  11. Old Dog, I live on the coast here in Florida. I see men and women - that wear very little - and some of the older, fatter ones would scare the enamel off teeth. That getting nekked may be an interesting experiment - but depending on who does the getting nekked - may run off the local BF population across three state lines. And it has nothing to do with UV. Never go to the beach with a weak stomach.
  12. In 1996, a Swiss photographer named Karl Amman visited the Congo, and found a skull similar to a chimpanzee, but had a prominent, bony crest like a gorilla. Suggesting a hybrid. Since then, reports of a large, lion killing chimp has been investigated somewhat, and a large chimp subspecies has been found, called the Bili or Bono ape. But they don't have the prominent bony crest like found on the skull Amman found. Michael Crichton wrote about them in his 1980 thriller called Congo. We keep finding things.
  13. Might have split off 400,000 years ago, but the common ancestor may have been in India or Uzbekistan, with Neanderthal migrating to northern Europe and Denisovans heading north and east.
  14. I'm not so sure some of these things have been covered so well - at least when addressed specifically in a direct question. Many here have had multiple successes, and I'd assume in their many excursions, they've just learned where some of these clans are more active. I was just curious. What am I looking for? Patterns, I suppose. I note that some who have had multiple indicators tend to return to the same areas - which would indicate some places may be more "populated." I mean, no one would likely continue to return to the same areas where nothing has ever been shown to be "active." Right? I mean, after a dozen times with absolutely nothing - the natural tendency would be to try other areas until one discerns those areas with more activity. What troubles me with these creatures? Aside from the fact that Big Boy scared the living crap out of me, I'm kinda curious how they've honed some skills masterfully, and in other measurements of intelligence compared to humans - they're so "un-needy," or uninterested. How can they be so developed in some traits, and so undeveloped in other traits? MIB This may sound awful, but killing never bothered me. I was more interested in the process as a technician might/would be. It was a job, no more and no less. When no longer on the payroll, it was no longer my job. The capacity for great violence does not equate to a preference for great violence. Big difference. On boards, I'm strictly a counter-puncher. I come here after the news boards and sports boards - and never start anything on any of the boards. But I'm all in once it starts! I can disagree with someone on certain things - Yuchi is a no-kill - and we can disagree without being disagreeable, as I respect his position on that. I do appreciate your thoughts. Since that up close - I have burned up hundreds of hours trying to learn more about those things - time I could have spent with the baby's momma! Screwed up my priorities!
  15. Oh. I was serious when I stated that I wish I'd never seen one. Some things once seen, simply cannot be unseen.
