Hmmm, sounds really interesting and really lonely.
that is a great story, thanks for sharing
hope he stays safe and if/when he has a choice to filter in to society i hope he chooses to say where he is, its cool the government is behind him, he doesn't even know what the government is i bet
31 square miles? Damn! That guy's a land baron.
pretty neat. reminds me of the tribal people who looked up and saw a huge bird.. which was a plane.
indians get the shaft everytime.. wtf.
^^^ They have to sadly, otherwise you and I would still be rubbing one out to cave paintings by firelight.
This is a truly fascinating story.
I wish I had something profound and intellectual to say about this...
But all I can think about is this could be for a new sitcom: A jungle man moves to new york city, learns English, and becomes a lawyer! Similar to the caveman lawyer, but more plausible.
If we can't make contact, how are we 100% sure he still exists?
^Satellite imagery tracking his whereabouts?
Great story. They should parachute a woman in for him. (Of course with cooking utensils)
hate to say it, but i agree with you.
i dont think they were very good at procreating either. Either their genetics killed off their babies asap, or they just werent horny enough human beings to procreate. I dont think they were eager to "advance" as a civilization either. They just wanted to sit in their teepees all day and smoke herbs. lol. thats a mean generalization.
otherwise, we'd be either rubbing out to cave paintings or they'd have land dominance in north/south americas.
I just read about the Lone Woman of San Nicolas the other day after google map exploring (yes it is what it sounds like... im a nerd).
How'd you like to miss that bus? All alone for 18 years.
I don't mean to be a grammar Nazi, but I noticed this thread title is "And than there was 1...", as I recall than is used when quantifying like More than or Less than; Shouldn't it read "And then there was 1..."?
And, it also deserves a "One" instead of "1", but I love reading about these instances of solitude too much to notice.
Points taken, grammar was never my favorite subject in school and I always mix up than and then. official ruling is - "Than is used only in comparisons, so if you're comparing something use than. If not, then you have to use then."
"Lie" and "Lay" are the two that drive me crazy, esp. when you get into the past-tenses (conjugate).
i lol'd hard.
blame text messaging!!!! oh the horror!!!
