Here we go again. Capitalism vs. infant lives. Which matters more? Do we need to guess?

Feeling bad for my colleagues in Anth/Arch. Unfortunately, this isn’t as simple as “well, just box it up and give it all back.” Some groups ask universities to hang on to stuff because universities can store it better. Some groups don’t agree on whose remains are whose, and sometimes it’s not clear what are remains/funerary objects and what are not. The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act has incredibly tight guidelines, for very good reason. A few years ago when we tried to return some remains to one group, it sparked a fight and a lawsuit over what it meant to be part of that tribal group. Yuck.

This boggles my mind. This is probably the tip of a density probe. I’ve never seen one unshielded. Its usually encased in plastic and at least in the US is transported in a big yellow container resembling a cooler. This screams of gross negligence

That’s slightly terrifying. Stuck in a tire tread, happily irradiating the occupants over some uncertain period of time. How and why was this being transported unshielded??

How the hell does it even enter your mind to fucking bomb a maternity ward???

Maybe humans were a mistake.

I know what you mean, but it occurs to me believing some humans were a mistake is exactly how one would think to bomb a maternity ward. :disappointed:

Nichols screams for his mom

Nichols continued to scream for his mother during the incident.

Officers continue to tell Nichols to give him their hands as Nichols continues to scream for his mother.

We really need to start thinking about what kind of world we live in, and if we want to keep living in this world, or if we want to do something to change things.
