Twisted logic

We've been told that humans came out of Africa so, so long ago. That's fine with me, but for some reason I cannot wrap my head around the fact that some of the most intricate and awe-inspiring ancient structures are found anywhere but. That's not to say Africa doesn't offer some intriguing sites for Archaeologists and enthusiasts alike, but c' you ever hear about any of it?

There are stone circles and megalithic structures strewn across the landscape of Ireland (we are constantly reminded). There are pyramids in Mexico. South America has some great sites to ponder, as does the Middle East. You always hear about these places. But when it comes to Africa, the closest we get to ingenuity is Egypt. Egypt this and Egypt that. Standing stones and Megaliths of Africa are not well documented at all. You'd have to search long and hard to find any mention of such pursuits in the cradle of humanity.

You have to search long and hard to find info on GREAT ZIMBABWE, or the Kamabai Rock Shelter in Sierra Leone. Perhaps it's not the lack of sites, but the lack of interest. Just imagine the stories Africa has to tell, and no one is listening.

Where the hell is the manual to humanity?

Again I say, just in a more to the point way, if we have to guess, search, calculate, etc, about US and everything, then this "place" don't give a here is the 500,000 trillion dollar question:

Why anything at all?

A cow in the field knows not about McDonald's.

So, if you leave something wondering either because it lacks capacity to understand or because you can forever leave it confused BUT hopeful...

what does this say about us?

Sound sinister? I guess you haven't been paying attention to the hospitals, nursing homes and the like much at all. As a matter of fact, look at history and try and count the living things (of course including us) that have suffered and died...NOW


Cows know not of Mcdonalds and lack the capacity to understand Mcdonalds....they are more than happy to roam around eating, sleeping, farting and screwing forever and ever and ever.

Ohhhhh but we are so so so different...we can think, calculate, alleviate, deviate, demonstrate, try not to hate, etc, etc, etc, etc ,etc out of WHATEVER THIS ALL IS.

Hmmmmmmmmmm. REALLY???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Which McDonald's did all of our ancestors, not to mention all the other living things, wind up at?

I get so so mad when I think about this stuff because the bullshit is SO SO actually tastes good to most everybody
