From The Onion:

"Archaeologists Unearth Lousiest Civilization Ever."

"From what we've unearthed so far, it appears this pre-Columbian civilization was pretty much just copying what other, more superior groups nearby were doing—albeit to a much shittier degree," Farber said. "They sucked. You should see the useless mess of a calendar these dumbasses came up with."

Though the team excavating the site is rapidly cataloging evidence of the civilization's humiliating shortcomings, sources said it remained uncertain exactly how this society of rejects met its end.

"Our best guess is that these boneheads just lost interest in their completely forgettable culture, wandered off, and accidentally fell into volcanoes or burned to death in one of their ridiculous fire-dance rituals," ... "I think we're probably just going to cover all this back up" Reagan said.

Tackling my first major Anthropology college project. It's just Intro to Cultural Anthropology, so maybe not that major.

Anyway, it's a short presentation on a culture of our choice. Ever attracted to the difficult path, I'm forgoing the usual Inca, Maya, Masai, and instead doing mine on Somalia as an essentially government-less society.

Ambitious, kind of scary, but digging up some fascinating stuff there! I think I rather like being a budding Anthrogeek!

Tired of being in economic/employment purgatory, I start my first of many classes next week to start knocking out a degree in Cultural Anthropology.

Already have a degree in IT and I can ignore the itch-to-learn no longer. Been working the last two Summers as a U.S. Park Ranger and want to get into Interpretation/Guiding. I know such a degree will help with that, but moreover this is one of those subjects that for me is worth getting the education just for the joy of it.

So... Looking forward to being a card-carrying member of Godless Anthrogeeks!

I've been thinking about that much lately. Paleoprimatology seems like the next logical step in studying our origins.

Welcome. Glad to have you. Unfortunately primatology is not my field so I can't help you.

Hello everyone, I'm an Anthro major at the University of Vermont. Glad to see a group dedicated towards the field! :)

Has anyone here done or currently doing any Primatology work? That's what I'm currently geared towards perusing.

Nice to meet ya'll! I'm a student of Anthropology & Archeology. If you have links that you think will help me and interest me, please link me! :)

YAY! So glad to find a group that fits me perfectly! :) Awesome!

Greetings all!

Brandy; If you're looking for a change of scenery try UCCS in Colorado. That's where I'll be transferring to. I think I'd rather be in Austin though...

After I get my B.A. in Biology, I want to get my Master's in Anthropology. Does anyone have a suggestion for schools?
