"Early humans wore jewelry and likely practiced cannibalism, suggest remains of the earliest knownHomo sapiens[/i] from southeastern Europe.
The remains, described in PLoS One[/i], date to 32,000 years ago and represent the oldest direct evidence for anatomically modern humans in a well-documented context. The human remains are also the oldest known for our species in Europe to show post-mortem cut marks."

this article is pretty interesting for me. It applies pretty well with our book my group has been reading, whether it be 2 men like in this article or a group of guys like in Jamrach's managerie stuck at sea. What really surprised me was that one of the men actually died on their boat while the other man lived. He said he lived off eating raw fish and drinking rain water. When there wasnt any rain water he said that he would drink turtle blood which i find crazy because i didn't know you can live by consuming blood. This man stuck on the boat did everything he could to survive and thats basically what Jaffy and everyone else on the boat did as well in our novel. They took extreme measures to live which eventually end up with canabolisim which is definitely an extreme thought. Thankfully the real man in the article didn't have to come to that insane thought but still did what he had to just to live.
Brooks Bonham's comment, February 27, 2014 4:54 AM
This article describes what being lost at sea was like for some people. It shows how smart us humans can be when needing to find food and water to survive. The guys that got stuck out at sea figured out every thing they needed to do to survive. Jaffy learned the same way as the people who were lost at sea in the article. He adapted in the heat of the moment to survive. Jaffy and his fellow sailors had to learn how to immediately adapt to there shipwrecked life or else all of them were going to have problems. The only differnece is that Jaffy and his fellow sailors chose to go with cannibalism, while the guys in the article figured out other ways to survive. Cannibalism was an extreme measure that jaffy and the sailors had to result too because no water and food was available. The guys in the article could of resulted to Cannibalism but had luck in finding other resources.

The art of whale hunting was very interesting, yet could get very boring at times as said in this article "the business of whaling was filled with long hours of boredom, although the moment when the whaleboats were launched and the chase began was filled with the frenzied excitement of a hunt". Jaffy got to experience many of these feelings while he was along for the ride. Whaling was a confusing thing to catch on to. Jaffy was forced to watch and learn very quickly and it was very difficult. Jaffy was not able to get one of the better jobs in this era, but he still had the job of "taking care of the creature once it was caught" (Birch 104). Although, this was not quite the job Jaffy wanted, he had to deal with it. The relation between this article and the chapters I have read in this book, is very similar. Jaffy has to endure many of the same complications and events that seems to be explained in this very article. He learns much from his experience and realizes that the hunt he had signed up to go on, was a very challenging experience. Jaffy was not properly prepared for the adventure that was yet to come from him.
tyler carolan's comment, January 30, 2014 3:21 PM
Whale hunting was an extremely dangerous job for anyone but it had its own reward in money. I can relate this to modern time king crab fishing in the freezing Alaskan water, although many get hurt, sick, or possibly face death, the crew is rewarded greatly for a successful trip. what surprised me was that it is only the owners or agents that get rich whale hunting. although only the owners and agents usually got rich, Jaffy seemed so grateful to have this job. I feel like Jaffy was so grateful because he really didn't have anything to his name and although the chances for a worker to get rich whale hunting, it was the best opportunity he had at the time. Jaffy was not prepared at all for what he was going to do on the whale hunting exploration. Although its nothing new to Jaffy, he had to learn very quickly on the boat. He was a young boy with a bunch of older men out in the middle of the ocean. His age really held him back from the other co-workers treating him like an adult and also a fellow crew member. He is used to get moved around alot as a child so he is very used to adapting to his surroundings. This is very useful for being out on the open water whale hunting, like the article says the requirements, skills, and knowledge it takes to whale hunt is very important. Jaffy went onto the boat with little or no knowledge of the ocean and the different types of whales there are. its interesting how they hunt whales also because whales eat small fish and shrimp so the crew has to hunt for a location where they could find stuff like that which makes their job even harder.
Brooks Bonham's comment, February 27, 2014 4:22 AM
Whale Hunting is an art that takes much courage and skill. Whale hunting can be very dangerous as experienced by Jaffy and his father. Everyone who went to sea knew they had the chance of not coming back. Jaffy faced many problems at sea such as sicknesses, mental disorders, and non stop hard work all day that included hunting creatures. It took Jaffy great courage and strength to not give up while at sea. He had to learn new skills very quickly and adapt to his new life. It was the life jaffy wanted to live, not just because of the money, but because it was an honor to work hard for him and his mom so they could live a good life. Jaffy was very behind when it came to knowing his boat skills. He was willing to do learn anything because of the fact that he was getting paid and it was the best opportunity to be successful in his life. Jaffy was waiting his entire life for the chance to live a life at sea. Little did Jaffy know that the sea was filled with many problems that he would have to face. It was a good thing that Jaffy was good at adapting to different environments or else he wouldn't of been prepared for life on the ship. Jaffy quickly learned the skills it took to stay alive at sea but when their boat went a float, Jaffy and the sailors had to learn how to survive off of each other. Jaffy faced multiple problems that are mentioned in this article and still came out a live. Overall whale hunting taught jaffy how to be a real man, survive with nothing, and face his fears.
