To whom it may concern,

Let me first say that as an annoying intellectual type who gets a boner every time she hears the words "lost civilization," I have enjoyed nearly all of your documentary efforts thus far.

I appreciate that in your zeal to bring the past to life that you sometimes feel the need to throw in recreations to liven up what some may consider to be dry content. I completely understand this, there are teenagers all over this country being forced to watch these during history class and you want to make it a little sexier for them.

That being said when dealing with the enigmatic first ruler of the Mayan city of Copan (Yax Kiuk Moi) I believe it is best that you simply allow our own imaginations to breathe life into this long lost king.

Because your recreation looks like Flava Flav just ripped the beating heart out of some dude and it really sort of ruined the overall feeling of antiquity.


Yours truly,

Those goggles look like they're designed to have the Urim and Thummim installed in them.

I am completely in love with you for whipping those names out - I have been recently obsessed with the Hoshen and the gems contained therein.

Yeah boyeee. Yax Kiuk Moi knows what time it is!

You've inspired me to write a follow-up letter to the Destroyed in Seconds people for their excellent breakdown of why water doesn't put out magnesium fires.

I saw this years ago, and I thought he looked just like Elton John!

I also passionately love Nova.

There is no TV up here because my Dad sent all of his worldly posessions to Florida when Mom got sick. So it is just me, alone in the dark with Fancast everynight. I actually blew through all of the Novas already, so I started re-watching "Cosmos."

I love the mouth (on the clay version). It makes him look like a frog.

I have always loved that statue, I always expect his eyes to suddenly open.

What you are seeing is a small brain. Flava Flav is a zombie! Your explanations make life so much more understandable.

You know that would explain so much.
