To all of 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 out down the
way. In fact, if it weren’t for Columbus we
here wouldn’t 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 of that
the Chukchi men you see in the above photo wouldn’t
have had those metal cups. So thanks a million for
the metal cups.

And I guess I wouldn’t have this nifty internet
thing either, so you wouldn’t be reading this.

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