May 12, 2012 Easter Island heads have bodies!

If it was April 1st I would have laughed at the gullibility of others. Or am I the last person on the planet to hear about this?

I'm in the I Didn't Know Club too.
Wow. Didn't the statues kill off the population in the end?

Unfortunately, the giant stone people civilization ended right in the middle of this cruel torture. They had planned to kill these statues in a most gruesome manner... luckily for these statues, the great big stone lawn mower had yet to be brought out.

I was in the know but shut my gob since other people would have called me a liar.

Also, we found strong evidence of how the ancient carvers manipulated the statue to raise it upright, pivot it and drop it in a hole 1 m deep cut in bedrock. The process left scars and indents on the statue surface. When seen on statues lying on roads, these same sorts of scars have been interpreted by others as evidence of upright transport methods. Our excavation, however, clearly shows that such damage could have been caused in the quarry.
so, they were made at a quarry, transported to the site, and dropped into holes? why would they do that?

Maybe they represent invaders, and the statues are the invaders buried up to their necks in effigy?

Maybe they used to be entirely buried. Maybe they are actually sarcophagi with corpses sealed inside.

Oh come on, people, do you think it is mere coincidence that we've dug up giant stone monsters just in time for December 2012?

I, for one, run screaming in terror from our new basaltic overlords.
