Australian History June 8th Vaginas in caves!

Look what I found in my archaeology news items....
World's oldest cave engraving is a Vagina - world's first porn.
You will probably have no interest in anything further....

Archaeologists might have found Captain Cook's Endeavour click HERE.

On this day back in the dim dark past of 12 months ago (2011 for those without enough fingers and toes to count) we banned live cattle exports to Indonesia following the footage of cruelty at an abattoir.
Anyone remember that?
Nope, me either.

Sydney and Newcastle were shaken and very stirred in 1942 when the Imperial Japanese Submarines shelled the two cities.

1984 saw not the legality of  George Orwell's Big Brother but the legality of homosexuality in NSW.

On this day in 1888 The Gippsland Times told how Professor Brown Sequard had distilled a poisonous vapour from human breath and used it to kill some rabbits.
Imagine, getting a nice serve of underground mutton by breathing on it...

I'm afraid my concentration on the rest failed after the first item.

Darn strange vagina ... I bet the Sun God is now offended (unless she is a she ...)

I'm sure I've heard somewhere that Stonehenge and similar man-built rock thingies had something to do with matriarchal histories. At full moon the light shines through an opening etc though unlike the shrine of remembrance no allowance was made for daylight savings.

Some say if a horse shoe is upside down all the luck will fall out, but I'm sure I've also heard somewhere that they were originally considered lucky when placed the other way in which case would more closely resemble the cave carving.

So not just a vagina but more of the whole 'box and dice'.

Around 10,000 years ago [depending on whom one believes] agriculture was discovered. People finally saw the connection between the planting of seeds, waiting, and the appearance of food/children. So maybe not porn ? [despite the french location of this particular graffito].

FruitCake said...

oops i meant to include the idea that matriarchal religions died out around the time agriculture developed.

Jayne said...

I rather thought it may, Andrew.
Hope you're not too badly scarred!

Jayne said...

Aren't all Gods she, Lisa?!
Says something about the archaeologists' minds...!

Jayne said...

So, it was sort of "have vagina, rule the world" type of thing?
Or the males' obsession with figuring out we did that trick with the sperm and magicked up a mini-human after almost 12 months?

Us and the Kiwis could very well end up ruling the world because of the crippling financial woes of other countries :-).

River said...

A few of my customers have breath bad enough to leave a sick/bad taste in MY mouth should they stand to close and breathe on me. Luckily I keep my water bottle and a tiny chocolate on hand to take the taste away, although that doesn't always work.

I've tagged you in a challenge scheduled to appear at my site tomorrow.

Professor Brown must have had really, really bad breath. And he may have killed them - but did he stop them breeding.

Jayne said...

I say we divide the world up, Windsmoke and take turns making the 'world leaders' herd cats.

Jayne said...

I find strong mints work best, River, but sometimes there are bottom-of-budgie-cage mouths out there that not even a nuclear accident could clear up!
Thanks for the challenge!

Jayne said...

EC I'm glad Prof Brown didn't breathe on too many other things or our extinct animals list might be a tad longer than it currently is!

Kath Lockett said...

Read every link and my brain is full. Of what I'm not entirely sure....

Janine said...

okay clearly I am no archaeologist but that did not look like a vjj to me. But what would I know lol....I will confess I kinda skimmed through the rest of the post as my thoughts went back to that article.....

Bill said...

Well aware of the animal abuse and the exports should have remained banned.

Jayne said...

Kath, you should sit down, put your feet up and imbibe of a hot cuppa or a strong beverage immediately.
It may help with the mental jumble ;)

Jayne said...

Didn't look like one to me at all, either, Janine, maybe those archaeologists are just hoping if they claim enough of them as vjj's then they can make us believe it?

Jayne said...

Bill, I think it's sad that the media were making awful jokes about those poor sheep who fell off the overpass when the truck overturned recently, yet they've forgotten about the stand they took for the abused cattle :(

Bill said...

The media may have the memory of a pot-smoking goldfish, but some of us don't. ;)

Jayne said...

Bill, pot smoking goldfish could run rings around some in the media...except for Wendy Deng's right hook.
