    So far, most of the places I'm finding references to him describe him as coming from Ecuador. If one wants to understand an object, it's good to start by getting the culture it is from right. What makes you think it is Mayan?

    I think it's Mayan because I typed "Mayan Spaceman" into google. It's called "research".

    Trolololol. Hahahaha! Were those the famous Mayan spacemen of Ecuador, perchance?

    Sorry. Concluding from the fact that something comes up when you type "Mayan spaceman" into Google that it is Mayan is pretty much the antithesis of research. I've found a website identifying it as from Peru and a couple saying it was excavated in Ecuador, but what I'd like is a reference to whoever found it or whatever collection it's in identifying it. So far, no go. Sadly, we missed the sale of a copy on ebay from Spain (for a mere $25), but no real info was given there, either.

    Just for laughs, I repeated your Google search. Your picture showed up on the fifth page of images, by which point the relation to the search terms is usually very weak. Neither the name of the picture, nor anything on the website identifies it as Mayan. It is a new age pseudo-science site (crystalinks.com), so it calls the picture "ancientalienspacesuit," but nowhere on the site does it say anything about where the figure is from.

    In short, not only do you not know what research is, you don't know how to use Google, you muppet.

    I actually used Bing, but I was too embarrassed to say...I thought it might discredit my research.

    You need to lighten up, Chuck.

    At least I manage to amuse Doofaloofa.

    At least we can all agree on this. Skip to about 0:30 for the relevant / good part.

    Maybe a little Mayan space magic would spice things up. Or some cocaine.

    Or we could fight? We're a long way from each other but I've always wanted to see Motown.

    It all went wrong, Chuck. My first posts were actually supporting you. Just because I train Taiji doesn't mean I'm a hippy. You misunderstood goddam it. You misunderstood...

    I was afraid I was misreading a troll / sarcastic post. Then I bit. Sigh. That'll learn me. Next time, it's Sheena first, Bullshido second for late night fun.

    You got me, man.
