Fun times.

History Channel constantly tests my gag reflex.

How come real archaeologists are looking for work but, Pseudo-Scientists have such cush jobs on the History channel?

On a related note, where should I apprentice to be an “Ancient Alien Theorist”?

-R Doyle Bowman

Truth. History Channel is such trash TV.

Yup

Sorry for the lack of updates.  Look at this arrowhead!  This is the only cool thing (to me) found after two weeks of digging.  It’s been so hot that my brain is essentially fried after every work day and I can’t motivate to, or stay conscious or aware enough to find Tumblr (it’s a Friday so I had enough motivation today).  I hope I will start finding cool things or have some kind of story to post up here soon.  Not too interestingly, it’s ~115 degrees on the heat index, it’s extremely humid, there’s no breeze and I am getting eaten alive by chiggers, ticks, spiders and yellow flies.  That’s not news.  I hope you are all in the air conditioning in a chigger-free work environment.

You know you’re in an Archaeology final when…

Someone’s phone rings, and its the Indiana Jones theme music.

Indy would be very upset that you forgot to turn your phone on silent, Anonymous member of the New World Archaeology Class.  And this is what I think should have happened to you as a consequence.

Love,

An open letter to Microsoft Word:

Dear Microsoft Word,

Colonoware is a word.  So is whiteware.  So is sherd.  So is Processual.  Why you hating on archaeology so much?

Sincerely,

Andrea

P.S.  Stop it with the red squiggly lines, why don’t you?

P.P.S. Clippy is never helpful.  See below:

Harrison Ford is Han Solo to me.

This is truth, and it’s “archaeology” or “archeology”

What I originally thought may have been an intact ceramic container just ended up being another grenade. Why can I never find an interesting artifact, instead I find grenades and “ES TOXIC GASES”.  I ran away from this after realizing what it was.
Click the picture to be forwarded to a Google search of the projectile I found.

Your lack of faith is disturbing.  Yes, I really made the beaver comic.

Your generalizations about our entire species make me want to not do whatever you think I should do.

Found this yesterday. It reads “ES TOXIC GASES”.  No thanks. Just keep walking…quickly.

Modern day ruins. Maybe in a hundred years they will be ripe for some data mining. Not quite there yet.

Must I explain the Problem of Race?!

My first attempt at Anthropology Major Fox meme.

This really fires me up when I have to put what “Race” I am, or what “Gender” I am as well.  You mean, you might mean genetic background, genotype/phenotype instead of race.  For “Gender” they probably mean “Sex” unless they are truly interested in the social role one has adopted.
