I've actually seen that video. It is what prompted me to ask my grandfather what he knew in the first place. Asking him again might already be too late. He has become "paranoid" over the past few years ever since a freak reaction to morphine. He comes and goes. I could, however, ask my grandmother...He might've said something to her about it if it was indeed strange enough. I'll

Mr. Friedman, I would like to share a story about a conversation that I had with my grandfather a few years ago. I will first give you some background on him. My grandfather is a retired decorated full bird colonel in the USAF. His plane was shot down over Germany around 1943 and his plane crashed in Sweden where they were P.O.W.'s for some time. After he was returned to the US in 1944, he w

Interesting idea, Crow. In one version of the tale of the Norse god, Odin, he gives up one of his eyes to the giant Mimir in exchange for wisdom. Stephanie

Sent, Jaimi. You might ask Briffits if you don't recall. The post was gone before I read it but I recall being told about it and receiving an email from Briffits who had replied to it at around the same time as the deletion. I don't recall there really being much of a problem with s-d.adrain's posts before that or after. Could've been the subject matter. About all I remember.

I can check to see if I still have any other pertaining emails and forward them on to you as well as the one email I do have. If he is addressing that one particuliar post, then it probably was removed for a good reason by my recall. It was borderline?

I think you are looking at just this forum, Jaimi, and not the other forums. Try running a search on his nick for the gv. You'll see that he has been at ghmb for a few months now. Hope that helps.

I think s-d.adrain is referring to a post deleted from the GV, titled Homophobia. I seem to recall that that one was deleted for a good reason (can't remember 100% on that one) but, at the time, it left a post in response by Briffits on its own and looked odd...ring a bell?

It was a post in War Game: Iraq! Actually, that entire thread from the GV went missing. I made a simple post listing games and for some reason or the other, that is utterly gone. Seen it lately?

You should listen to Brian Transeau, aka BT. He's a dance/trance music artist but he's different from the usual "slap some music together" remixer. He was thinking about trance music in general and the affects the music has on the people. How they relax and let go a bit. He noticed that the same thing happened in tribal rites. He decided he was going to explore this a bit and see i

I have an interesting story. My dad didn't think I needed a tape deck for my first car, so I used to drive around using a boombox because I hated the radio stations. I was doing just that and was pulling out to turn left across traffic when BAM! A speeding car going 30 mph over the speedlimit slammed into the side of my car. My car was totalled, they had to use the "jaws of life" to

lol ouch, pdf. I never installed adobe last night. I played uru instead. The Navajo are part of what is called the Na-Dene subgroup and they are in haplogroup A with an arrival date of 5000-10,000 years ago. They still apply the landbridge theory to the Na-Dene. However, in their mythos, there is no stories of great long walks on ice. Nope, it's a boat that brought them here in the story.

Actually, there are sites out there that do have mtDNA dispersals of N. Native Americans. The origins for many tribes emanates from SE Asia up to around Mongolia. I'd link to some of these sites but I don't have a pdf viewer installed on this puter yet and can't verify that the sites have what you are talking about. My daughter has the mongolian blue spot, which is apparently prevalent amon

Navajo myth would support a superflood cause of migration. According to their mythology (which ties in with Hopi, Zuni and other groups in the SW of the US), they came to this world because of a massive flood that forced them to flee in a reed or bamboo ark of sorts. Also according to their lore, the Hopi, Zuni, Acoma and another tribe that I can't recall at this time, also accompanied them in

Actually, it does and people can survive with a massive hole in their skull as well. I have a cousin who was exposed inadvertantly to pesticides. When she was born, her brain tissue was pushing out of her skull. They widened the hole, did a bit of a lobotomy on her and she still lives to this day. Of course, she's retarded but eh, we're talking about life and death, not smarts afterwards. ;)

So, the use of cedar and juniper to dispel bad spirits around the world is just coincidental because we like the smell of it when it burns? Pine smells good when it burns too, yet there is no incidence where burning pine is symbolic of a spiritual cleansing. I think it's a mistake to assume that these sort of things are just purely coincidental. Many pharmaceuticals have been based off of olde

For some reason, an old form of the current surname crops up within the name itself. The Sinclairs and my family both share a common ancestor.

Ttbmk, only a virus can really change the code of your DNA, but it's purpose is to take control of the cell's reproduction through the DNA to reproduce itself. Interestingly enough, this may not be a clear cut process. Many auto-immune (self destructive on a cellular level) diseases have viral triggers.

And what impact does this have on Miss Twyman aka Baroness von Drakenberg's book on Merovingian bloodline, which by her being of "dragon blood" means that she is of this supposed bloodline as well? Ulterior motives? Nah, never...

I can elaborate. Nucleic dna is present in every cell of your body. It's in the strands of your hair to the tips of your toes and all the way down to the marrow of your bone. Same with every other creature and plant on this earth. So, you could eat a steak and odds are, you're eating cow DNA as well. However, there is no evidence that eating DNA in any way incorporates the DNA into the syste

I agree with you entirely that Sauniere's intentions were not necessarily for personal gain. Huge sums of his wealth went into new constructions, renovations in the surrounding area. When somebody comes into a great deal of money, they can do a few things. One can spend it on themselves, misering every franc to make their life luxurious or one can share it to improve the lives of those that li

I was a psychology major my first year and a half of college. I read "On the Nature of the Psyche" and also "Archetypes of the Collective Unconsciousness". Jung was, I thought, better than Freud by a long shot. However, there was too much of the unknown and the unprovable in Jung's theories. You can go ahead and prove or disprove a theory that is grounded in hard science.
