To all our paleolithic human ancestors who fought the elements coming to America, I would just like to say — great job!

We would also like to thank Leif Erikson and Christopher Columbus for helping down the way. In fact, if it were not for Columbus, we here would not have the benefits of “modern civilization,” which gave us mechanized war, greed, and religious insanity.

Of course, we did have the Mayan-Aztec culture, who were pretty good at that kind of thing themselves.

On the up side, I guess that without all that the Chukchi men you see in the above photo would not have had those metal cups. So thanks a million for the metal cups.

And I guess I would not have this nifty internet thing either, so you would not be reading this.


Some pretty modern-day Chukchi girls. Fur is definitely “in” on the Chukchi peninsula.
