Don't they have Giant skulls in some of their museums?

I'm guessing "no."
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.

I don't know where I copied this from.
But I found it on the internet, so it must be true.

"Peru's gold museum is private and not open to the public, so only a few have seen the golden-clad giant king. The mummified head of the crowned king in the photograph is about twice as large as a normal head. A golden tunic hung on the wall is made of spun gold, over eight feet tall and tailored in such a way as to suggest that it was not intended to drag on the floor behind a king, but rather to hang straight down."

I've been to Ecuador-there is No Such Place except in the fevered imaginations of a select few.

I long for the days of "The Holocaust Channel." Now its nothing but pawn shops and truck drivers and rednecks in the swamp.
