Buried up to their neck all those years. That must have sucked.

The statues on Rapa Nui, which is known commonly as Easter Island are referred to as Moais.

Funny kinda related story -
A few years back I got back in touch with an old bass player friend who was in my first real basement band back in high school.
He is still into music as well, and has a home studio.
When we we catching up on old times he was telling me about his studio, and gave me a business card that had the Easter Island statues on it, and the name was, "Moai Studios".

He asked me if I knew what Moai meant, and I just rolled up the sleeve of my shirt to show him the tattoo of one I have on my arm.
He looked like....:shock::shock::shock:

:D

I always laugh when I read that...However,how they came to be there has never been explained. Not fully....ya know?:hmm:

Sure they have. The whole process is well understood, and has been reproduced by archaeologists aided by the natives. The statues were carved, supine, in the extinct volcanic crater which served as the quarry; they were then transported to their locations using log rollers, and erected using levers and heaped-stone fulcra. Basic Neolithic engineering, and less complex than Stonehenge.

I think these things have some sort of mind control on you guys or something because this keeps getting posted here over and over and over.

It's a trap designed to see how many times the same people will comment about them being reposted.

My comment was geared towards the funny/haha,light sarcastic bend....shoulda been more clear.....:laugh2:

When they dig down to the bottom of it all, I bet they are all wearing Crocs.

I always figured they just floated them into place with Zardoz-head technology.
