Whoah.


Rare on the web to find music by an "unknown" (although he won't be if someone in the recording industry hears this class) of such high calibre! A great listen at ten past 1 am - what a gem of a find.

I particularly like Cool Ride and River... but hey I like 'em all! GetRight here we come mass download mwahaha :D

One of the funniest things I've got in a long time from a mate. Tx Chris Williams ;)

(PS I've cut out the THREE PAGES of email addresses that this email was forwarded to ;)

Sent: Tuesday, October 09, 2001 2:05 PM
Subject: Only in America.................................................


There is a man in Newport, RI named Scott Williams who conducts
archaeological digs in his backyard and
sends his finds to the Smithsonian Institute. This man really exists
and this is the actual response from the Smithsonian Institute:


Smithsonian Institute

207 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20078




Dear Mr. Williams

Thank you for your latest submission to the Institute, labeled

"93211-d, layer seven, next to the clothesline post... Hominid skull."
We have given this specimen a careful and detailed examination, and regret
to
inform you that we disagree with your theory that it represents
conclusive proof
of the presence of Early Man in Charleston County two million years ago.

Rather, it appears that what you have found is the head of a Barbie doll,
of the
variety that one of our staff, who has small children, believes to be
"Malibu Barbie."


It is evident that you have given a great deal of thought to the
analysis of this specimen, and you may be quite certain that those of
us who are familiar with your prior work in the field were loathe to come
to contradiction with your findings. However, we do feel that there are a
number of
physical attributes of the specimen which might have tipped you off to
its modern origin:


1. The material is moulded plastic. Ancient hominid remains are
typically fossilised bone.
2. The cranial capacity of the specimen is approximately 9 cubic
centimetres, well below the threshold of even the earliest identified
proto-hominids.

3. The dentition pattern evident on the skull is more consistent with
the common domesticated dog than it is with the ravenous man-eating
Pliocene clams you speculate roamed the wetlands during that time.

This latter finding is certainly one of the most intriguing hypotheses
you have submitted in your history with this institution, but the
evidence seems to weigh rather heavily against it. Without going into
too much detail, let us say that:

1. The specimen looks like the head of a Barbie doll that a dog has
chewed on.

2. Clams don't have teeth.

It is with feelings tinged with melancholy that we must deny your
request to have the specimen carbon-dated. This is partially due to the
heavy load our lab must bear in its normal operation, and partly due to
carbon-dating's notorious inaccuracy in fossils of recent geologic record.
To the best
of our knowledge, no Barbie dolls were produced prior to 1956 AD, and
carbon-dating is likely to produce wildly inaccurate results.

Sadly, we must also deny your request that we approach the National
Science Foundation Phylogeny Department with the concept of assigning
your specimen the scientific name Australopithecus spiff-arino.

Speaking personally, I, for one, fought tenaciously for the acceptance of
your proposed
taxonomy, but was ultimately voted down because the species name you
selected was hyphenated, and didn't really sound like it might be Latin.
However, we
gladly accept your generous donation of this fascinating specimen to
the museum. While it is undoubtedly not a Hominid fossil, it is,
nonetheless, yet another riveting example of the great body of work you
seem to accumulate here so effortlessly.


You should know that our Director has reserved a special shelf in his
own office for the display of the specimens you have previously
submitted to the Institution, and the entire staff speculates daily on
what you will happen upon next in your digs at the site you have
discovered in
your Newport back yard.

We eagerly anticipate your trip to our nation's capital that you
proposed in your last letter, and several of us are pressing the
Director to pay for it. We are particularly interested in hearing you
expand on your theories surrounding the trans-positating fillifitation of
ferrous ions in a
structural matrix that makes the excellent juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rex
femur you recently discovered take on the deceptive appearance of a rusty
9-mm Sears
Craftsman automotive crescent wrench.


Yours in Science,

Harvey Rowe

Chief Curator-Antiquities

Test your computer for XP readiness

Interesting... I did the test and apparently Windows XP needs AT LEAST (!!!) 1.5Gb of free space to install.

Blimey I remember when Windows used 150Mb, and that was considered bloated... What is happening to those MS programmers today? They're getting lazy again...
