Whew. Thank you, Lucid. A question actually unrelated to sausages. How did we start the sausage obsession, anyway? Who's to blame?

Dr. Carson's odd belief is not befitting an educated professional in the twenty-first century. It's more appropriate to medieval times. I don't decry anyone's religious beliefs, but when you're a neurosurgeon and running for the most powerful office on earth...please, just shut up! 

(That's for Carson. Not you, Lucid.)

This is something many Christians believed a very long time ago. It ultimately comes from the biblical story of Joseph, who found favor in the court of a pharaoh. It happens to be a very entertaining story but there really is no truth to it. We know better now. Goodness knows why Dr. Carson would promote this yarn and still expect to be taken seriously, except perhaps by the nut jobs in the religious right. And look, in the end he didn't win the presidency. Well, it ended up going to an angry orange toddler with equally questionable credibility.

No more sausage talk, right, folks? 

It's a good example of why you should take people seriously only when they are talking about their specific fields. I have no doubt Carson is a great surgeon, certainly he has the reputation. 
 If he told me my thingdoodle was all twisted around my whatsit and needed an immediate transpacificstantion procedure I'd listen.

 On history and government? I'd go to someone else.

You and BTE have sausage on the brain.

But pickled grasshoppers?

Speaking of pickled grasshoppers an informant has sent me this image of your transportation outside the OI.

Classy I must say!

Delicious. Sounds similar to good old black pudding.

Upon the discussion of sausage,

Addressing the topic of causage.

To the latter I'll plead

But we are all agreed

To defer to our kmt_sesh's bossage.

It's manual transmission but comfortable, so long as at slow speeds. I think that was when I was out of gas there.

This is actually a dandy mode of transportation, but you have to remember to bring the pooper-scooper.

Ok I have a question. Why did humans ever begin to drink fresh milk? While the research I have read nicely explains the spread of thie lactose tolerant mutation among agricultural and pastoral societies, it does not explain the consumption of fresh milk in the first place. Here is my reasoning:

The first evidence for the consumption of dairy products is that of cheese. This is because the earliest farmers, according to scientists, were lactose intolerant. Cheese making breaks down the lactose in milk meaning that it is safe for the lactose intolerant (mostly) and preserves milk. Early dairy consumption also includes fermented milk products.

The first step in making cheese is to sour the milk. I did some research and I discovered that sour milk is reasonably safe for lactose intolerant people to drink.

So you are hungry, thirsty adult Neolithic farmer/pastoralist staring at a vessel of raw milk, which you know will likely give you stomach cramps, and even possibly vomiting and diarrhea. 

You also have a safe vessel of sour or fermented milk you can drink.

Which do you choose?

So what am I missing from the equation?

We as mammals begin by drinking fresh milk from our mothers it's rather part of our culture even today.

Considering it looks like the clothing for four of the five wives are hanging off of the truck and the camera guys seem to be filming I would say back to earth is a lucky naughty boy...:P

(Not me !  thats a rigger for a stabilising camera head  ) 

Oooo much better than that   ...    lets just say, that when a film crew is drinking in a bar in Namibia, they should not p*** off a local gang of undercover neo-natzis working as a 'mining area keep out '  security team , with a leader who is  Martin Bormann's grand nephew. 

And conversely , the 'security company'   should not pile into a  military style hummer and go out into the desert to hassle said film crew ... when  the crew  have access to a truck with a ' hummer catcher' on the front and active flame throwers mounted on the roof   ;)

more 'recent history ' ;

.. and also , 'film crew members' might be exposed to some covered up history, when their 'local ' Namibian  driver  takes you into a 'restricted  area'  to show you the sights , after you didnt believe him that the  'post justice' of WWII never came to Namibia and  thought all the Natzis hid out in South Amercia and th US rocket programme ; 

( hint ... diamonds  ! ... gold !  .....   minerals !     everywhere !  ) 

I. e.   a  different part (and reason for )   the  ' Skeleton Coast '  ; 

Inland ;

... in that place ... everywhere ! 

 

as opposed to this reason for the name originally 

d1f19bd66e3b90c8aaef33e911fc8a23.jpg

 

It started pre WWI and most assumed it ended before , or at least after WWII .

 

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/brutal-genocide-colonial-africa-finally-gets-its-deserved-recognition-180957073/

( PS  some of the crew were so upset by conditions there, they paid the local 'helpers' more , out of their own pockets ,  and some still offer them support today .  But it makes them nervous , if their 'bosses' find out , big trouble !   .... yet, who knows what the real budget  was ?   .... on  'lesser' movies    (although equally as 'silly' )  eg.  'Scoobie-doo '  shot in Queensland  -  $98 mill .   !     for a cartoon dog movie !  ... ans then they took away the  crew biscuits supplied with coffee as it was "costing too much "   :D   ) 

Hmmm got me curious now  .... < googles>  ... 

 

Fury Road budget -  $US 150 MILL .

Nice article and interesting read. Keep it handy for the next pie-eyed fringey who insists Göbekli Tepe was a Neolithic super-civilization of advanced agriculture and animal husbandry. The article clearly points out it wasn't and explains the evidence against it quite well, so I suppose the next fringey who comes along will explore the "I no see!" option.

Lotta people got their two cents (sestertii?) about that sculpture. Some people think it's ancient. Some people think it's Carolingian. The two sucklings there are Early Modern.

That's Rodan, with an a. I think BTE is talking about Billy Bob Rodin, a Walmart greeter in Possumneck, Mississippi.

The Cabal (according to some fringe theory proponents) is the shadowy group pulling the strings of Orthodox Academia and actively involved in suppressing knowledge trying to be shared by alternative theorists. 

Wow. I clearly wasn't paying attention in graduate school. I must have missed this while I was busy discussing the many different points of view on on the same issue.  

It does explain something that the archaeologists told my niece last summer when she was working on a dig: "Ten archaeologists equaleleven opinions."

The 11th opinion must that of the Cabal. It does seem, however, that somewhere in the world, there are at least 10 archaeologists willing to argue with the Cabal.

Q; How many archaeologists does it take to turn an opinion ?

Depends on who's opinion. A legion of them cannot sway Clad or Mario.
