Prehistoric Proletariat



Stonehenge



 Easter Island



 The Sphinx

Where did they come from? How did they get there? Who made them? How were such wonders created without any access to modern technology?






 The answer's really quite simple.

  1. Ummmm, your full of questions tonight dear little one. Why yes, that has got to be the answer. Thank goodness who saved my from having another G&T to ponder the answer further.

    1. I kept you away from your gin and tonic, maddie? God forbid! Hopefully you'll come up with another reason to have one. It ain't the Betty Ford Center I'm running here.

  2. Hi, Kirk!

    Is this report based on cold, hard facts or mere conjecture?

    Forget that silly Ginger vs. Mary Ann debate. As a cartoon connoisseur, I want to know who you think is hotter - Betty Rubble or Lois Griffin?

    On a sad note, I am sure you saw that Kaye Ballard died a couple weeks ago at the age of 93, and I am still reeling from the death a few days ago of Kristoff St. John at the age of 52. For decades The Young and the Restless was my favorite daytime drama, and I came to know and love Kristoff in the groundbreaking role of Neil Winters. He was a member of the family.

    Have a good weekend, Kirk!

    1. Shady, if it was mere conjecture, I would have shown not only Fred but, a la the opening sequence of 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Great Gazoo as well.

      I'll leave the Betty Rubble vs. Lois Griffin debate for others to decide, though I would like to point out that Betty lived during the Stone Age, and today would, at best, be a fossilized skeleton (another possibility: you just filled up your gas tank with Mrs. Rubble.) As for Lois Griffin, I almost listed her among the New York City accents in the Penny Marshall post I did awhile back, but found out that the actress who voices her is actually from Long Island (kind of a suburb of NYC.)

      I did not know Kaye Ballard died, so that may be a sad note in itself. I've seen her in many things, and always enjoyed her performances. She was a great comic actress. She also grew up here in Cleveland, ANOTHER reason I should have been aware of her passing! I may do something on her in the future. Oddly enough, even though I've never watched The Young and the Restless, I was aware of Kristoff St. John's demise. I guess because he was younger than Ballard and his death was not due to natural causes, it got more media attention.

      I haven't watched it in years, maybe decades, but I used to be a fan of General Hospital. I guess you could say Luke and Laura are like family.

    2. I watched GH, too, starting way back in the mid 60s when Steve Hardy, Jessie Brewer and Audrey March were the main characters. During the Luke & Laura era I was smitten by Holly Scorpio (Emma Samms).

      If you don't already watch it, I highly recommend The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Alex Borstein co-stars, and she is also the voice of Lois Griffin all these years!

    3. I'll give it a look, Shady.

  3. Debra, anthropologists are still trying to figure out what that means. The hope is that there's something like the Rosetta Stone out there waiting to be discovered that will finally explain it.

    1. Possibly literally, Adam. Paper currency (in fact, paper itself) was still years away.

  6. As I looked at the images, I HOPED you would have the answer! I don't know why the scientists are still pondering HOW all this was done.

  7. Mitchell, scientists don't spend much time watching Hanna-Barbara cartoons. They're very peculiar that way.
