I don't know about you, but everything I learned about DNA was from the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. All this Nacle banter about something or other about Lamanites and DNA and all that, is it just a slow blogging season and they cannot think of anything else to write about? I mean, didn't most (>90%) of the native Americans die after being exposed to European diseases and hospitality like hundreds of years ago? And since then, hasn't there been a pretty heavy mixing of DNA going on? Uhhhmm. And what about any mixing of DNA before that time? Hmmmm. With various archeologists arguing there were Vikings and Chinese running around North America before Columbus ever stepped foot on the shores of the New World. Huh. I dunno. And I don't think anyone else really does either.

But, I guess we shouldn't complain, right? At least its something different than the same old dead horses getting beaten again.

Hey, they've got the burial sites and bones for the Vikings in Newfoundland.

Just because they don't show up in the DNA ...

Must have been an equally slow day in Snarkville as well? ;-)

A low day on the Nacle means a slow day at SN Industries LTD. We're creative enough to make a silk purse out of sow's ear, but we cannot create ex nihlo.
