Please welcome another imaginary friend

    Please welcome another imaginary friend!!!

    This time, he's a renowned Prehistoric Archaelogist, also considered America's most hated Archaeologist because he stands up against unfounded personal theories (fits right in here).

    He was compared (in a 1999 article in Scientific American) to Brad Pitt in "Fight Club". He has a book out with Cambridge University Press and is working on publishing his second, and is very well known and regarded in archaelogic circles. He can be found in National Geographic as well as many peer reviewed journals.

    Let's all give a warm welcome to DrPaleo.

    He is currently on a dig, but promises to say hi. Really. :uhh: He promised. :blushing: I'm not making him up. :frown:

    He explained it to me, but I'm too tired to remember. (surgery, meds and all that) Perhaps he will explain. Perhaps a bit headstrong? :tongue:

    I did not mean to offend, neither did I mean to spoil Fight club to anyone who has not seen it. I look forward to read from such an interesting new member of PF ! I don't know if we already have an archaeologist.
    My imaginary girlfriend is in Tadjikistan. What are we doing ?

    Welcome to PF, DrPaleo!

    What's the difference between imaginary and virtual?

    Is that your way of telling us he's old? :uhh: :biggrin:

    Welcome DrPaleo! What type of fish do you like? Did Evo explain this to you yet?

    Let us know if he finds your other imaginary friends while digging. :biggrin:

    Why did I type Bread instead of Brad? Is he really imaginary in fight club? I never noticed.

    Cool - what's she doing there? My (actual) parents lived in that part of the world for a while - in Kyrgyzstan. They loved it (except the food - too much horse meat :yuck: ). The mountains are beautiful!

    *Meanwhile, back in the thread...*

    My hubby's best friend is an archeologist...if he and his archeologist pals are representative of the breed, they tend to be a bit strange.

    He'll fit right in here :smile: .

    I think "virtual" refers to something which exists in reality but does not have actual physical support, whether "imaginary" is not real.
    Never mind, I was confusing with a cartoon I saw the other day :uhh:

    When Red Rum didn't turn up for days after I introduced him, everyone said he was my imaginary friend. :cry:

    He's my age, so <cough> yeah. :blushing:

    Ooops!

    I was hoping someone would tell me!

    I wish I knew :rolleyes:
    She did not go for the eclipse, since she did not even notice...
    Anyway, it does not appear to be too close to the Afghanistan border, neither to Pakistan, nor China... :surprised

    How about Coelacanth ? Seems appropriate for a specialist of prehistory.
