I'd imagine it was a common skill back then.

The Mayan eccentrics are very cool. 8)

I don't know, my first thoughts are the local piece is some kind of skinning/ gutting blade with a "gut hook" (some modern hunting knives have these). :?

Er... yes, yes, that was my other suggestion. Obviously. :oops:

Definitely.

Jr. didn't go to school. He just hung out with mom and dad all day. And I'm sure they put his ass to work, while, at the same time they were teaching him the survival skills he'd need when he became an adult.


Back when home-schooling meant something!

Yeah, I like STP and most Hard Rock and Classic Rock. I can do without the real Heavy Metal stuff, though: the guitar solos sound like "diarrhea of the hand". :wink: Glad you're enjoying the videos. It's been kind of a random, creative outlet.

Good to hear from you, Bro.


Hey Charlie - thought I'd drop in and leave you with this video. I like it, but I think you may have been in the audience.

Diarrhea of the hand, eh.

I bet Feidel could explain to us how thawing and freezing did that.

(Sorry, Charlie....that's in another thread.)
