Not sure what the Kennedy assassination JPGs have to do with this AMAZING use of FOIA - but I got lost in them before I even clicked on the link, lol!

The article really shows the benefit of actually reading these long-winded bureaucratic documents and using FOIA and the courts to basically force their compliance. Civilian monitoring groups are the key - atleast if we intend to continue with this or a similar system.

Yeah, it's like it selectively stretches/warps around the object, rather than being torn by it.

Pretty cool - more or less the basic beginnings of the cool electric Batcape in the Dark Knight (the carbon fiber skeleton that activates with electricity).

I suppose if she thinks if she loses twice, she can be twice as much a part of history.

Chase your dreams, girl!

Researchers recently found milk proteins on pots at Çatalhöyük in Turkey, which at 9000 years old dates to the beginnings of domestication, 4 millennia before lactase persistence appears.

Study by 72 researchers from eight countries concludes that the Lagoa Santa people are descendants of Clovis culture migrants from North America. Distinctly African features attributed to Luzia were wrong.

How can these people be descendants of the Clovis, if the last thing I posted was about as Clovis coming from them?

Science has no idea what is going on.

Background: Existing theories range from people arriving via what was then the Bering Land Bridge between Russia and Alaska or coming along the Pacific Coast — and at different times.

Relatively new information has shown there were likely people in North America before the so-called Clovis occupants around 13,000 years ago.

Previous genomic studies have suggested the first American populations diverged from their Siberian and East Asian ancestors nearly 25,000 years ago and then split into distinct North and South American populations about 10,000 years later.

And this:

The researchers also discovered a population about 11,700 years ago that had Australasian ancestry evident only in South America (it hasn't been found in North America yet).
