That's the Club mantra, isn't it?
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Those 'mold' pics still intrigue me, though I'm now confused about one thing - there's a mold AND a furnace? Hope I haven't got this tits up but (assuming I'm not misunderstanding you here) I notice both seem to have a lip running along two of the inner surfaces - any ideas on why that might be?

BTW, re-capping a discussion I had with Arch somewhere else.... what kind of tools were used to chip out those holes in the limestone? The Egyptians are alleged to have used copper chisels on the pyramids which will work on limestone....even if devilishly slowly and with constant need of re-sharpening.

So...how does one dig straight down into solid rock, creating a vertical side to a hole, without heavy duty iron tools?

Have you tried one out? Seems like a simple experiment. Just watch your fingers!

Con one of your kids to go along to operate the camera.

Was Kissin suitably intrigued by the site?

It is definitely a metallurgical product,

You were right all along.
