This isn't something you can just toss a blanket on and hope it goes away. This won't end well.

This never would have happened if Craig T. Nelson was governor.

Here's what will happen as a direct result of it going up on an Indian burial site:

Lots of grouchy ultra-pc people will want to stop construction.

Maybe a few people with spurious folkloric claims on having ancestors that might have been buried there will be grouchy too.

Then everyone will get over it.

That's what will happen.

If it were in a different state it wouldn't be allowed to happen. The building will be cursed.

For chrissakes. Just dig up the farking bones and hand them over to the nearest rez. Those guys love that heritage bullshiat.
 
2012-04-07 11:02:58 AM  
Meh, if comeuppance are coming it won't be because we built over a burial site. It's small potatoes compared to some other things I can think of. I say, in for a penny in for a pound. Build away.

Who cares? Just dig 'em up and move 'em.

The idea that one person can be buried on a plot of land that becomes their sacred ground for the rest of eternity is stupid. They're dead. Move them aside for the living.

There's some prime real estate being occupied by decaying corpses all over the world.

44? That's nothing. The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame was built on a 19th-Century pioneer cemetery, and they dug up over 200 bodies while doing an expansion a few years ago. Apparently when the rangers built their company headquarters there, they only moved the stones and didn't bother to tell anybody that fact when the building was converted into a museum.

Capital thinking. Most cemetaries are hogging prime acerage in cities now, some great views being wasted.

This.

Or wait, are we allowed now to believe in the paranormal becuase it's not specifically referencing Christianity?

There was a hubbub around here in the 70s about building on an Indian burial ground. A few years ago, the tribe opened a casino on the same ground. Nothing bad has happened except that it is a crappy casino.
I used to get invited to photograph Native American events, where I would get jumped on for stealing souls while native americans around me were photographing away. So, -shocker- sometimes people try to play things both ways.

Well, there's nowhere you can go with a guarantee that bodies were NEVER buried there.

There's 2.3 billion acres of land here in the USA. When Colombus arrived, the population of Native Americans was estimated at 50 million (ok I guess that includes Canada and all of South America, but whatever), arrived across the land bridge 12,000 years prior. Say 5,000 years of 35 yr average lifespans of 50M people= 7.1 billion bodies.

How dare you! Native Americans are a sacred race of elven fairy people, bred for their skills in magic....

Only dead sober during daylight will I watch the original Poltergeist. The sequels, mind you, are a laugh riot and are good for parties, sexy-time, and children's birthdays.

The first time I saw the original Poltergeist I was about 10 and I saw it alone on late night TV (sometime around midnight). I was at my Aunts house and the toilet was downstairs and you had to go outside in the dark to get there. I seriously considered just finding the nearest flower pot to piss in. I was absolutely terrified.

Thanks; I had suspected but as I've sort of tapered off reading in the last couple years I have not gotten around to that one. Silly husband and his problems with reading lights in the same room...

This isn't about race. It's about wasting good land on people who don't need it. They are dead.

I also watched Poltergeist when I was little - it may have even been when I was in single digits - and it scared the crap out of me. That clown freaked me the fark out!

Once I got over that, though, I've been mostly unaffected by horrors. Bar The Mist, that is, where human nature is creepier than the aliens.
