Mastodon is back, and heralding their return is an epic LARP-centric video of one small hero's epic journey. And it kicks so much ass. It's really just a good watch from the start all the way to the end.
A disturbing bit of news has bubbled up in Central Florida, where an 80,000-year-old mastodon skeleton has gone missing from the shed where it had been stored for over 20 years. CFNews13.com reports:
We know that humans reached North America between 40000 and 16000 years ago...and that's about all we know for certain. Anything in American prehistory before about 10000 years ago remains deeply controversial. But some mastodon bones found in the 1970s recently revealed major clues.
There are European cave paintings that are 30000 years old, but the art of the ancient Americas remains a mystery. This bone fragment features an engraving of either a mammoth or a mastodon, and is at least 13000 years old.
