I don't understand why this is interesting. The only slightly interesting fact to me is that supposedly smart people stilll refer to American Indians as "Native Americans". They are no more "native" to this land than me (being white), Ahmed Abdulla or Tyrone Shulaces. It's well established historical fact (which I learned in grade school in the early 80's) that these self proclaimed "natives" migrated to North America from Asia over the Bering Straight when sea levels were much lower early in this (past) ice age, and worked their way south and east from there.
And by the way wiping out all the amazing TRULY indigenous species to this land along the way that were either dangerous (in their perception) or useful to them including the wolly mammoth species, sabertoothed tigers, giant ground sloths, various species of giant predatory ground and aerial birds. I LOL when people reply to that with "No, American Indians didn't kill them off, they died because the ice age ended.". Which is a joke not only because most were too far south to be affected by the ice age either way, nor were they species overly affected by climate. But they also seem to forget that those species all seemed to survive all the previous ice ages ending just fine (same argument goes for the Polar Bear btw). The only difference this ice age was those "natives" being here.
Proof of universal karma. It'll catch up to all of us in the end.
I got suspended from jr high school for stating these facts in a debate with a "native american" school mate durring lunch. People hate the truth.edit on 18-2-2013 by Larry L because: (no reason given)

I have to agree with Klassified, in that I know for sure the Chinese, well, some Chinese, are doing backflips every time their ball gets pushed further down their end of the field like this.
Yes, we do. Got a problem with that?
