Bastard Toadflax: In other news, the word "gullible" isn't in the dictionary.
Draskuul: My guess: parasitic twin. They say it seems to have survived for several years after birth, so my guess would be a parasitic twin that was more like a conjoined twin, something that in those days could have reasonably been removed by what passed for a surgeon at the time.
Godscrack: [img4.imageshack.us image 343x190]Pat Robertson is on the case.
MeanJean: GhastlyIf it is a real human skeleton then I'd wager it's a grossly mutated and deformed fetus that was miscarried.If that thing slid out of me, I'd be screaming in Lovecraftian horror.
KimNorth: Really a humanoid mutation that survived that long, 6 -10 yrs inChile at 8 inches long? Don't think so...But what do I know.
Deucednuisance: Born to Die: Oh, FFS. There is only one Garry Nolan at Stanford.Huh, sorry about that. I thought I saw two different undergrad institutions. The pictures on the two bios don't look anything alike, and list two different specialties, so I figured it was a very odd coincidence. My apologies to him and Fark for botching that.
vudukungfu: FARK rebel soldier: Reminds me of this place which has apparently closed since I was there 20 years ago.The most asked-for exhibit at the Dime Museum is Abraham Lincoln's last bowel movement -- supposedly taken from a chamber pot at Ford's Theater -- mounted in a dusty frame along with a faded, handwritten note attesting to its authenticity. Horne had taken the turd down -- he changes his exhibits frequently -- but people kept asking for it, so he put it back up. The crusty, blackened poop was exposed as a fraud, Horne says, when an analysis revealed that it contained Necco wafers, which weren't sold until 1912. Of course, even Horne's explanation may be a fraud -- who can say?I could swear that NECCO wafers were sent to Union troops in the Civil War.
Dwight_Yeast: Looks like alien mummy jerky to me.
SirEattonHogg: I would guess one problem with this "thing" being an alien species is if it got here, then that denotes intelligence and its head size seems too small to have the brain power. Obvious intelligence that could create an interstellar spacecraft capable of large distances.I've read that there is no direct correlation between body size and brain power in a species. For instance, humans don't possess the biggest brain, but obviously we're the smartest on the planet. OTOH, isn't there a minimum brain size needed for developing self-awareness, critical thought, imagination, etc?
