Uh, are all your 2057 posts like this??
It can`t be just me...
YOU ARE THE STUPID ONE.... PEOPLES, STOP SAY THIS GUY IS DUMB/GAY/DIDNT MADE IT LIKE THE GUYS DID B4, WHAT HE MADE, EVEN IF ITS NOT THE WAY THEY DID IN THE TIME, WAS PRETTY DARN IMPRESSIVE AND INGENIOUS!!! STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT PEOPLES THAT DO THINGS THAT YOU CANT DO!!!
Before you say something so stupid, first of all, it isn`t even 100% proven their were cavemen, and it isn`t 100% proven who built Stonehenge, so ur just being an idiot. shut up.
and to all people who think this guy is gay/this guy needs a life, we`re on IAB. We ALL need lives.
1) How is he going to get another concrete slab ontop of his 11 feet tall slabs to form an arch?
2) The Stone Hedge is more than just a big circle of rocks, its an accurate sun clock and astronomical station. It was built around the measurements of when the run rises and sets.
Well anyways, I think he has a theory going, one that any of these people that have spent all their time debating the issue could have come up with themselves... If only they took their heads out of the sand. They`ve had some good points too though. Anyways, hope we get to see an update of what he`s doing later.
Wally Wallington. Haha, who would do that to their kid?
And then some bright spark with access to really big square rocks will say "Hey chaps, look at this, this is how those guys did it back then." And then to prove it, he`ll build another in his back yard.
And maybe, just maybe, they`ll call it Stonehenge Revolutions.
Yep... that`s my state. Crazy people with nothing better to do.
The stones from stonehenge are so striking because there are no giant boulders in that are. In fact, most hisorians believe the stones were transported hundreds of miles. There`s no way the ground would be uniformly solid enough for spinning to work.
Most likely scenario: they lined a bunch of logs side by side to create a roller-path (like some airport luggage drops have) and pushed it along that. Once a stone got to the end of the roller-path, they could simply pick up the ones at the front and place them at the back to lengthen it.
Turns out, on the shortest day of the year, when the set was setting 4000 years ago, the light shines directly through the "door" of the stonehedge. These people decided that perhaps the stonehedge was for a special ceremoney where they try and pursuade the sun to come back, since this was the longest night of the year, and the idea of the sun never coming back to them was terrifying.
Stonehenge`s rocks were originally, most likely, very neat and carved to squared of or angular edges. They`ve just worn down over the hundreds of years since they were put in place. Look at the blocks in pyramids for example. They were so perfect you can`t slide a piece of paper between them!! :)
The part he did is not that impressive if you ask me.
I can`t wait to see the finished product!
I think this guy is amazingly smart!
This guy is cool. But like guest said, I`d love to see him put the horizonal stone on top! I suspect he could, though.
Of course, it could have been so much easier with a machine... But this guy knowlage is great ^^
now... how to fit the top stone on the 2 standing one? >.>;;
But seriously, folks, that is very awesome. I love Daily Planet, science, and people who use science to prove stuff.
