Well I mentioned last update that Warsaw Wally was checking in here for material, and now I can add that his visits are increasing with each passing day. I am thrilled and honored to have such a well known archaeolologist become a regular here. It would be even better if he were not well known for being the laughingstock amongst his peers.
In his recent post he refers to Stout Standards as an “anti-archaeological blog”, apparently itimating that his is not “anti-metal detecting”? Jeez, could have fooled me… ROFLMAO!!
I see too where he brought up archaeologist Lisa Hume MacIntyre’s name again, and thought it appropriate to hurl crafty insults at her, but then I would expect nothng less from such a “small” individual.
And he wonders why no one likes him…..
FMDAC 2013 CONVENTION
Just learned that the FMDAC Convention/Hunt will be held this year in Knoxville, Tennessee, in conjunction with the Smoky Mountain Artifacts Research & Treasure Society. The dates: October 25, 26 & 27. Please see the following for more information….
For the record I have removed three links from the Stout Standards website. The first is “Scattershooting”. It was intended for my daily thoughts or brainfarts, but after starting this blog the the brainfarts stopped. I also removed the video and product review links. I was not keeping up with adding new videos, and the product reviews stopped coming in a long time ago.
Thanks to those of you who did send along product reviews in the past. You are appreciated.
One photo from the Scattershooting link mentioned above I do not want to disappear….do you remember these detectors?

AN EMBARRASSING MOMENT
Dr. Epstein was a renowned engineer who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees in his home town and then left for New York where he quickly rose to the top of his field. Soon he was invited to deliver a significant paper at a conference, coincidentally held in his home town. He walked on stage and placed his papers on the lectern, but they slid off onto the floor. As he bent over to retrieve them, at precisely the wrong instant, he inadvertently farted. The microphone amplified his mistake resoundingly through the room and reverberated it down the hall!
He was quite embarrassed but somehow regained his composure just enough to deliver his paper. He ignored the resounding applause and raced out the stage door, intending never to be seen in his home town again.
However, decades later, when his elderly mother was ill, he returned to visit her. He reserved a hotel room under the name of Levy and arrived under cover of darkness. The desk clerk asked him, “Is this your first visit to our city, Mr. Levy?” Dr. Epstein replied, “Well, no, it isn’t. I grew up here and received my education here, but then I moved away.”
“Why haven’t you visited?” asked the desk clerk. “Actually, I did visit once, many years ago, but to tell you the truth an embarrassing thing happened, and since then I’ve been too ashamed to return.” The clerk consoled him. “Sir, while I don’t have your life experience, one thing I have learned is that often what seems embarrassing to me isn’t even remembered by others. I bet that’s true of your incident, too. Was it a long time ago?”
“Yes, many years.”
The clerk asked, “Was it before or after the Epstein Fart?”
