500 years old is not very old

so this one guy discovered 3 inca mummies that were perfectly preserved in ice. this happened yesterday or today or something. read about it on yahoo and watch the related video to see the 15 year old girl mummy who i thought was alive when i first saw her. i have issues with all of this.

1. they are calling these mummies "ancient incas" even though they are only 500 years old. 500 years old is not ancient. i am practically 500 years old.

2. these children are not really even mummies because they weren't mummified, right? they were just left to die and then preserved in ice which is why they look like they're still alive.

the first picture is the inca girl that guy found yesterday or today. the other two pictures are mummy mummies. there is a difference.

It smells like mummies in my car. Ancient ones. Did you watch the director commentary on Season 3 of the Office yet? Jim's hair is fake! That's why it looks so weird. The official line is that he was shooting a movie and had to wear a hairpiece. I believe that he is actually an albino.

oh my god jim is losing his hair and that is why he is wearing a hairpiece. i kind of think steve carrell has hair plugs.

Jim's hair

I think Michael Scott's hair is 50% spray paint baldness cure, 50% Aqua Net. I think Creed made his hair out of stolen paperclips.

Jim's hair makes him look like a driven career woman.

let's all be fake-mummies for halloween.

also, how do you mummify someone? why hasn't there been a serial killer who has mummified his victims yet? i think that would be awesome. let's ask don delillo if we can mummify him.

Excellent idea. About Don DeLillo. I still really want all of us to be Dr. Manhattan for Halloween.

It's actually my new wallpaper at work, that last photo. How unprofessional of me.
