too much time on his hands. He probably also complains that Santa couldn't possibly live in the North Pole. Devil

he may have a point if expanded

If it's applied to historical interpretations as applied in archeology today, he might have a good point. How many times do we hear about the alignment of some building, or sun, star, moon symbols mean something more than maybe just decoration. Goodness, just look at all the hoopla lately over Mayan charts and symbols and the year 2012. Reading archeologist musings you'd think EVERYTHING had to have some significance to religion, sacrifices, astronomy, etc. Can you imagine after some sort of dark ages the archeologist of the future finding old Christmas wrapping paper and starting to develop a theory that the moon used to circle the earth in some different fashion thousands of years before?

Even archeologists tend to do pie in the sky

I remember a Medieval village was set up in England. One of the arheologists noticed a indentation in the dirt by the doorway. He asked what it was and was told that was where the chickens dusted themselves when it was raining. Forever they had seen the same indentation by the door and thought it had some sort of religious meaning.

Knowing a few from college, they did and probably still do see religious meaning in everything until proven otherwise. Like the Mayan calendar. I still think that is where they thought it was ridiculous to go any farther.

Love the chicken one. Also those "kites" over in Jordan area everyone is trying to decipher along with the "wheels". It's obvious to me the "kites" are corrals to funnel a herd of something into the enclosure at the end.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
