Your Daily Giant 3/5/2013

Today Daily Giant is brought to you by the Smithsonian Institution. The book pictured above is the Annual Report of the Bureau of American Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution 1883-1884. These reports often described their trained scientists carefully measuring and reporting giant skeleton finds. These accounts come from several different states, years and scientists. This has never been adequately explained by the Smithsonian or skeptics alike. Here are some of the accounts found in their reports.

"No 16 was an uninclosed squatter of unusually large size not less than 7 feet high when living."
" a skeleton measuring 7 1/2 feet in length and 19 inches across the shoulders, was discovered… Each wrist was encircled by six heavy copper bracelets… "

" lying at full length on its back, was one of the largest skeletons discovered by the Bureau agents, the length as proved by actual measurement being between 7 and 8 feet."

"Excepting one, which was rather more than 7 feet long, these skeletons appeared to be of medium size".

"In the bottom of this, among the decayed fragments of bark wrappings, lay a skeleton fully seven feet long, extended at full length on the back, head west. Lying extended on the back in bottom of this, amid the rotten fragments of a bark coffin, was a decayed human skeleton, fully 7 feet long, with head west".

"An unusually large skeleton, the length being something over 7 feet. Although very soft, the bones were sufficiently distinct to allow of careful measurement before attempting to remove them."

"The length from the base of the skull to the bones of the toes was found to be 7 feet 3 inches. It is probable, therefore, that this individual when living was fully 7 1/2 feet high."

"Not one carious tooth was found among the hundreds in the mound… In some the second set was
observed, I came upon the largest sized stone ax I have ever seen or that had ever been found in that
section of the country. Close to it was the largest and most perfect cranium of the mound...Anticipating a
perfect specimen in this skull, I was doomed to disappointment, for, after taking it out of the earth and
setting it up so that I could view the fleshless face of this gigantic savage, in the space of two hours it
crumbled to pieces... According to the measurements of the bones of this skeleton its height must have been
quite seven feet"

Careful measurement, exact measurement, perfect teeth, giant skull, double rows of teeth (second set was observed), giant stone ax: these guys could work at the Daily Giant. The next time someone tells you this is a hoax or mastodon bones, cut and paste this on their ass.
