    here's another video, remember it's about anything mind blowing or interesting for who ever wants to join in posting


    - - - Updated - - -

    btw to add to that second video i posted about the southern accent, the similarities between the appalachian mountain dialect he was mentioning is striking and this is how the older and stronger version of scots irish accents sounds like and proly stronger back then when they came here and they mixed alittle with the west country accent of england to give us the unique features of mountain speech.

    The Vikings facts: The vikings were from originally Scandinavia and Danish who would cross the waters of Europe and raid coastal regions. They had ships that can be carried with several men to get passed blockage of rivers and such. They would train by: fist fighting, mountain climbing with heavy equiptment, long distance swimming (for miles in some cases), stone lifting, wrestling, and even sword sparing etc... There were cases of these types of training resulting in death for some unlucky people. The vikings were actually not all that dirty or monsterously looking as depicted in pop culture although some may have been but more not, they actually had good hygien, clothes and believed in beauty or attractiveness. Many of them were actually farmers. Plenty of Vikings were red haired.

    The average height for the vikings was from (males) 5ft7 to 6ft0. The built of the Vikings was not that different from today's men but were probably more muscular than the average men of today due to life style. It is estimated that the Vikings had over developed forearms and arms in general (because of train and heavy weapons such as axes and long swords) as well as shields, they also had reletively large calf and quad muscles due to hiking and lifting. It is quite difficult to determine the typical weight of the vikings specially in a time where food was not as easy to have access to than today but estimates suggest 170-240 lbs in some cases when they were able to get alot of meat from boars, bears, dears, salman, fishes, sea food etc... they would stuff their stomachs four vikings for one dear (you can just imagine how much they ate sometimes). The Vikings or ancient Norsemen were in many cases indistinguishable from the Saxons at battle due to similar appearances and clothes and armor. They also descend from the same germanic tribes both Saxons and Vikings.

    Realistic depiction of the body type and physical stature of a Viking or Norsemen

    Ancient Roman Statues in Mexico



    In 1933, an archaeologist was digging around a burial ground about 40 miles away from Mexico City when he discovered this tiny little figure among the other offerings. And we should mention that this wasn't just a typical out-in-the-open burial dumping ground. The spot he was digging was previously under not one, but two undisturbed cement floors that were untouched since the 1500s. So it's not like a jokester could have purchased it at the nearest Roman-centered novelty store and dumped it in a cemetery to be hilarious.



    And yes, we're aware that Columbus touched ground a few years before that, but white guys didn't make it to Mexico until 1519, and even then, it's unlikely they would have been carrying around Roman artifacts. And yes, they know it was Roman -- the beehive bouffant (or hat) and facial features match Roman artifacts of the second century.



    So how did it get there? No one knows.

    i have no idea, a lot of people like claiming certain ethnicities made it to the New World before the Spaniards, i dont know what to think, there were also ancient Roman writings found in Mexico

    they have also found pineapple in the paintings of Pompeii, pineapple is only indigenous to the New World
