  1. Hey, all, thanks for another fine podcast.

    A few observations:

    Check out "The Reality Check" Podcast #159 for a skeptical look at the Hawthorn Effect. Check out that podcast anyway, because it is damn good.

    Regarding the mysterious head in the jungle, It sounds like an Olmec head, albeit an enormous one. I can't see anything mysterious about it from the limited information we have.

  2. Thanks for the tip Charles. I'll check out that podcast. 
    From Wikipedia "The most familiar aspect of the Olmecs is their artwork, particularly the aptly named colossal heads."  I guess we'll have to wait till the movie comes out to see why they think the obvious explanation is not the correct one.
