Mapping redheads: which country has the most?


@Nick Danger

does anyone know of a good documentary (not mainstream BS-- conspiracy truth only) about the spread of genes like this? id like it to be in the same vein as the atlantis information and the catclysm of 9500 BC, as described by allan and delair.

does anyone wear teva sandals in here? (this applies to mens sandals; maybe womens sandals as well.) i read a review that theyve changed; i bought a used pair at a flea market a year ago but the sole separated. i had an original pair that was great for many years, but one of my dogs chewed it up, so i dont want to buy the "un"-improved version if its going to fall apart.
shoe goo (shoe glue) doesnt hold, btw.

Isn’t red head an irish trait?
The spread of those genes has to be spread with irish background. Could also be scottish

Okay I got a few-
1- In WW2 did German U-boats in the Atlantic also attack empty merchant ships returning to America?
2- How did animals first get onto tiny islands in the middle of the Pacific?
3- In oldtime sailing days, did the captain and officers get scurvy as well as the crew?
4- How did the gigantic Ayers Rock get into the middle of Australia on a flat plain?

1. i dont know for certain.
2. the theory is that they were marooned there after severe storms/typhoons. "science" says they couldve traveled across land bridges when the sea level was low. alternatively, they could have been stuck there after the cataclysm of in 9500 BC.
3. i would imagine that the captain and officers ate better than the crew. if the captain had a stock of homemade marmalade or jelly that contained vitamin C (gooseberry jam?), he wouldve been unknowingly safe.
4. theres a theory that it is the stump of a giant tree. before you dismiss the idea, take a look at the video. it raises some interesting points.

look at the web page. theres a bizarre pocket of redheads in the middle of present-day russia. further, there are redheaded "elongated skull" humans or aliens in south america. i am curious if there is a tie-in to that.

Yeah I looked at it more in depth. Kinda shocking

10 minutes or shorter. It gets boring after awhile

Agreed, in fact 2 minutes is my maximum tolerance level, I mean, if we wanted to watch longer vids we'd go to youtube..:)
A good compromise for people who post longish vids in VC would be if they firstly told us in a few words what the video is about, then we can decide whether it sounds interesting enough for us to want to look at, and if it hasn't grabbed us in the first couple of minutes we can always exit and say-

Good questions! I think the criteria and length might go hand and hand so for me, it’s difficult to say. It is said that the average attention span for an individual is 20 minutes, which may be why TV shows would have commercial breaks in 20 minute segments of a show. I think for anything to be longer than that, I would personally need to have a sincere interest in the topic that is either challenging my beliefs and/or information with credible sources, or is giving new and resourceful information altogether.

That said, if after 15-20 minute mark, I haven’t learned anything new or not intrigued, I usually stop watching it.

when i post a video, i try to include a brief synopsis as well as the running time.
if it is long, i will include the minute marks so others can skip ahead to relevant points in the video.

i encourage others to follow this protocol.

Iam more of a text-person than a visuals-person so i only have about 3hrs a day for visual media (and that has to include my network news, yes, i still watch network news :) ) which is just about the amount that my brain can handle. So i don't have alot of brain energy to expend watching video after video. What is posted on here, i tend to copy and save the links to watch later (could be a week if they are longer).

I'm more inclined to watch a video if there is depth to a person's work. I find that alot of popular youtubers in the conspiracy world lack that IMO. An example would be; the few videos of Jason A posted on here that i've watched don't inspire me to watch again if a person posts a video of his. But he has 1million subscribers, so i guess iam just an outlier who can't see what those 1million people see. :)
