  1. Wurdi Youang rocks could prove Aborigines were first astronomers IS this just a pile of rocks placed in a semicircle, or proof that Aborigines were the world's first astronomers? After years of meticulous examination, a group of Australia's most distinguished astro-physicists is starting to believe it's the latter - a discovery that could turn history upside down and render England's famous Stonehenge an also-ran. Dubbed Wurdi Youang, the strange stone arrangement was found on property near Mt Rothwell, 80km west of Melbourne - its two points set in perfect alignment with the setting sun on a midsummer's day. CSIRO experts believe the ancient Aboriginal sundial could be upwards of 10,000 years old, an estimate that would have it pre-date the famous neolithic Stonehenge and the only remaining ancient wonder of the world, the Egyptian Pyramids. Its location is a closely guarded secret. CSIRO astro-physicist Professor Ray Norris said the precise alignment of the stones proved it was constructed to map the sun. "This can't be done by guesswork, it required very careful measurements. If it goes back, let's say, 10,000 years, that predates the Egyptians, the Pyramids, Stonehenge, all that stuff," Professor Norris said. Source
  2. ORIGIN OF PEACE PIPE Long, long ago, two young and handsome Lakota were chosen by their band to find out where the buffalo were. While the men were riding in the buffalo country, they saw someone in the distance walking toward them. As always they were on the watch for any enemy. So they hid in some bushes and waited. At last the figure came up the slope. To their surprise, the figure walking toward them was a woman. When she came closer, she stopped and looked at them. They knew that she could see them, even in their hiding place. On her left arm she carried what looked like a stick in a bundle of sagebrush. Her face was beautiful. One of the men said, "She is more beautiful than anyone I have ever seen. I want her for my wife." But the other man replied, "How dare you have such a thought? She is wondrously beautiful and holy--far above ordinary people." Though still at a distance, the woman heard them talking. She laid down her bundle and spoke to them. "Come. What is it you wish?"

More information to follow here when it becomes available. http://www.spiritofbaraka.com/ Fuck Yes!
  4. Has anybody here read this book? It looks like a good one!
  5. Yet threatening to ban people whenever they question your arrogance does? I to am willing to take it all public, Torsten. People need to know how much of a dick you really are. The only thing you don't tolerate is any intolerance to your intolerance. And let me tell ya, the range of your intolerance is pretty friggin' vast...

    Vics soon to loose their bongs

    Take your focus and energy off of them, and move it to everybody else. Easier said than done I know, but I truly think that it's the answer. Seriously, just think what would happen if only 1/4 of the population ditched their TVs and started having street parties...
  7. Okay, so you finance the forum, and then you check in on it 20 minutes a day (like you told me)? Who else couldn't do this? So sorry for not being on your Top 10 list. I've got a secret for ya though: it was never my fuckin' ambition mate! By the way, I'm not sure if you realize this, Torsten, but this community does not need SAB to survive... Haven't you noticed the amount of meet-ups which this group of people have? Well then, it should tell you something... To all of the people who respect the 1000+ contributions I've made: You are very welcome!

    Quotes of the day.

    “A forest bird never wants a cage.” - Henrik Ibsen
  9. Distracted - I completely agree that this is a community. What I don't agree with however is that Torsten is the creator and owner of it... he is simply one of its several facilitators. "A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm." - Henrik Ibsen (No, Torsten, this isn't a threat!)

    Shush dude... you'll jinx us!
  11. That's what I thought as well?
  12. Including Torsten? The events of the last few days just made me decide to level with you because at the current rate you're out of here pretty soon.

    I vote to ban the Suit. It has caused much more harm than any bong has...

    At least smiling is still legal.
  15. I agree. Have you seen the film The Hurt Locker? You can see a lot of paranoia in that, but most of it is needed to stay alive. If you don't consider it paranoia, then I don't know what else to call it. Extremely cautious maybe?

    Politicians are fucking lame.
  17. It means more to me than that. I usually find that dictionary definitions don't encompass enough... Paranoia is a state of mind that anybody can have IMO. It doesn't always have to be a mental condition.
  18. Don't some words get new meanings over time? Surely paranoia means more now than it did in 1891?
  19. From somebody who would rather neg than converse, I'll take that as a compliment.

    Mining careers

    Mining is great. Mining for the inner human in the outer machine, etc. Just great. mr b.caapi - Have you seen Red Dog? If not, then I recommend that you do.
  21. So he was just unfairly rating content then was he? Riiiggghhht.... Besides what I've read from him here, I don't know what you're talking about. ? Yeah, that's what I basically meant. The ability to question every ad and so on. It isn't valued here as much as it should be IMHO. It does seem to be getting better in the long-term though. A little paranoia still has value IMO. And saying that it doesn't is like saying that you would be perfectly calm and rational in a war zone...
  22. It's not harassment to negatise every single post by somebody? Fair enough... Why are you happy with eatfoo being suspended then, Archaea? Uh, didn't you just suspend eatfoo for personal attacks?! Way to treat a devoted member, guy! I am just sick of people calling other people paranoid. Because you know what? It's a good fucking day and age to be paranoid!

    a cat up a cactus LOL

    “A story of survival,” said Fonger. “He wasn’t nervous/frightened. Instead – personified Calm after the Storm demeanor. A lesson more of us could learn from.” Cats seem to always have the ability to surprise.
