Even before the invention of padding, contractors were padding their bill.
impressive – the hypothesis that is!
Contractors……..A license to steal! UNTIL you catch them!!!!
I thought I had seen this before! Copyright 2014!
The absence of a skeleton impaled by the spear implies the contractor got away
Makes sense to me. We do have remnants of high tech lying around all over the world. One hypothesis is diffusion of a single large global civilization that fell apart and some of their more durable constructions like iron pillars that don’t rust remain, while they disappeared.
Probably that Michelangelo guy they hired to do the ceiling.
Sad to think how much more advanced the world would be today if it hadn’t been for religious fanatics basically banning science for centuries. Sadder to think that it still goes on today.
Any bear sign around there?
Just happens, all the time. Star Trek had an episode that presupposed that a race of dinosaurs reached intelligence, technological advancement and civilization, and went off to the stars, just before the meteor hit 65 million years ago. Those who stayed on Earth … the rest, as they say, is history. And who can say they’re wrong?
Agree on the contractors, with one exception. The current one is a jewel. He and crew worth every penny. Correcting many past botches. Once in a milennia one good person appears and restores hope in mankind, if not in contractors.
Must be located in Florida; never had so many contractor ‘issues’ as we’ve had here.
Lost civilizations. I really miss Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Between the contractors and the HOA, surprising anything gets done.
First time I’ve seen a cave with uvulae.
But don’t worry. I am assured that the contractor shall be able to work us back into his schedule by Tuesday.
What?! One hundred thousand years ago Homo sap couldn’t hold a pencil, much less a chisel, and had to ask a Neanderthal for help with the harder math problems! Romanesque barrel vaulting wasn’t even a gleam in an architect’s eye that long ago. Anachronism, I cry, anachronism!
The snakes await their encounter with you..
Nah…the contractors just didn’t show up for 100,000 years.
Complements to Wiley’s artwork – brilliant use of perspective in this really tall panel.
