Well, you actually may have found yet another reason we do not see much of them: we are quite aggressive towards strangers. You, for example, did not even know they existed until lately - but your first response was that you wanted to defecate on them. Typical, methinks.

Ever heard of identity theft? I could be anybody doing anything. But I am an imagineer and I am a quartermaster.

“The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to the earth’s movements at certain intervals with supersensitive microphones, which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically thinking scientists into a trembling ruins. It was a sometimes a weak, but high pitched sound which we thought to be coming from our own equipment,” explained Dr. Azzacov. “But after some adjustments we comprehended that indeed the sound came from the earth’s interior. We could hardly believe our own ears. We heard a human voice
The cliff-dwellings of Mexico and Colorado have of late years aroused speculation as to the aboriginal or directly prehistoric peoples of these regions. The "Popol Vuh" definitely describes Xibalba as the metropolis of an "Underworld"; and with such examples as that of the Cliff Palace Cañon in Colorado before us, it is difficult to think that allusion is not made to some such semi-underground abode. There the living rock has been excavated to a considerable distance, advantage being taken of a huge natural recess to secure greater depth than could possibly have been attained by human agency, and in this immense alcove the ruins of a veritable city may still be seen, almost as well preserved as in the days of its evacuation, its towers, battlements and houses being as well marked and as plainly discernible as are the ruins of Philæ. It is then not unreasonable to suppose that in a more northerly home the Kichés may have warred with a race which dwelt in some such subterranean locality. A people's idea of an "otherworld" is often coloured by the configuration of their own country.
I don't recall saying I'm a quartermaster in the Dutch Navy.

I don't see what indentity theft has to do with our discourse. Again what are you trying to say?
That you either believe that I am who I say I am - a quartermaster and imagineer - or you don't. I could have stolen anybodies identity (either virtual or not) and wrapped my ATS identity around it. It's up to me. So, yes, I could well be a "senior consultant" - or not.
BTW: you aren't really contributing much to the topic of this thread. So, let me ask you a question: we are both Dutchmen (at least we both pretend to be). As a Dutchman, you probably grew up being taught at school that our country was totally earthquake proof: we are not on the edge of some tectonic plate and the crust of the planet has been known to be stable in our country. Up to december 26th, 1986, we never had ANY earthquakes. Note that we had been pumping gas for over 20 year then. Suddenly we had one "earthquake" after the other, and it was said to be "proven" that our gas exploration was the cause.
Now, suppose that there is another cause - say that something IS going on under our feet that creates "earhquakes" - an ongoing war, for example, with explosions - perhaps the Dutch live on top of a huge underground colony - what proof would you require to believe it?
