How Football Sounds To People That Don’t Care.

Okay. . . .

Firstly, imagine every time within a day that football is mentioned by someone else. Secondly, replace it with something that you don’t want to hear about every day. Say… Archaeology.

Excuse me?

So, you awaken to the clock radio. It’s 7AM. Just as you awaken, it’s time for the news and archaeology already. Not news and other historical investigations, like library restorations or museum openings (unless there’s another event happening), but just the news and archaelogy. Malaysian plane is still missing. Pistorius is still on trial. New dig announced in Giza. Ancient Mayan temple discovered. Exciting stuff.

Darn right it is.

Even when it isn’t archaeology season, the media follow noted archaeologists. They drive fast cars, date beautiful women, advertise fragrances, and sometimes they go to nightclubs and act in the worst possible way.

Well, one out of four isn’t bad, is it?

Drive past a huge billboard with a black and white picture of a rakishly handsome archaeologist draped over an impossibly beautiful woman. He’s winking at you. Trowel in his left hand, supermodel in the right. Jurassic, by Calvin Klein.

No, that would be paleontologists, you wanker.

You once met a disagreeable chap who threatened to beat you up because you didn’t watch the archaeology. “Not a late paleolithic era supporter are you? Think you’re better than me? I’ll have you, you scrawny tw*t!”

Actually, in most departments these days just substitute “post-colonialist theory supporter” and it’s probably pretty accurate. . . . .

I hear ya, sister: College Student Documents Her Archaeological Life with Cartoons

“I was greatly influenced by The Secret of Grave Robber and Ghost Blows Out the Light, two popular Chinese novels with plotlines built around archaeology,” explained Li. “In my mind, archaeology simply consisted in digging ancient tombs, unearthing dinosaurs and evaluating antiques.”

However, when she attended university, Li found that what she learned in class was rather boring: The program focused primarily on the historical elements of archaeology and was not at all the great adventure she had imagined it would be.

Haven’t seen anything translated yet, I’m hoping someone does that at some point.

Jim’s Journal is, of course the best college comic strip EVER.

3,000-year-old mummified toy found in Tutankhamun’s tomb

Archaeologists unearthed a 3,000-year-old mummified teddy bear, believed to be the oldest in existence, at a tomb in Egypt.

And it has led experts to believe the Ancient Egyptians not only cuddled up with the toys at night, but once worshipped their furry playthings.

The landmark discovery marks the first time an Egyptian teddy bear has been discovered in perfect condition.
