    I just saw an interesting documentary on the Skull of Doom. It's been tested and shown to have been made with modern (1850s or later) tools.

    Yeah, I heard that. Still, for me, doesn't take away from the cool factor, I still want to see it.

    I'd like to see Lenin's preserved corpse, just because it would complete my collection of pickled communist guys. I've seen three, and an even four would be cool in a macabre kind of way. Not sure if there are any others.

    John Paul II was under glass for a long time too as I remember. Does anyone know if they ever put him into the ground or is he still in a cake dish?

    Check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_skull and note the details in the Mitchel Hedges Skull such as the finely detailed teeth and the fact that its the only skull with a detachable lower jaw just like a human skull, Im sure the skull you guys are talking about is one of the other obvious fakes mentioned. The teeth on the Hedges skull look so real when compared to the teeth on the fakes. Please check it out and let me know what you think
    EDIT! Heres the perfect place to compare two crystal skulls! http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...US282%26sa%3DN Both claim to be Hedges Skull but the differances are so obvious that its silly! The one on the left has almost perfectly round eye sockets while the one in the middle has human like eye sockets, the left one has the corny square shaped teeeth while the one in the middle has human like teeth. It just looks so real when compared to the other! (Yes, Ive been all about the Hedges Skull since I was a kid! LOL!)

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    When I was in boarding school, every year there would be a couple of students that had never seen snow (and some who had never seen livestock).
    Make sure there is someone there with a video camera to catch your reaction. It'll be priceless.

    That would be so cool. You'd have fun getting the bike up the Barrier but it should be okay on the Plateau.

    I would so like to go to Antarctica, or Canada, or Central Europe, or a tour of the distilleries of Scotland. Heck I even want to go look at the Stromatolites at Shark Bay in Western Australia.

    Note to self. Must stop buying bike schwag and save for an OE.
