somewhere a tenured, 40-years-at-the-ol'-University historian will argue you that back in the day, the Chinese would elongate the bones of the highly revered royal families from birth. the Chinese were also cannibals and there are known writings that say they wore roman-style loin clothes under their robes. and the lil boys fiddled with big boys. in public baths. women sat home and begged for a war to take their husbands away...

In 1520, the explorer Ferdinand Magellan spent the winter in Patagonia. According to the story told by Magellan’s chronicler, Antonio Pigafetta, the natives they encountered were extremely tall - Pigafetta estimated they stood between 9 and 12 feet. A hundred years after Magellan, Sir Francis Drake’s chronicler confirmed Pigafetta’s account, but reduced the giants’ size down to a "mere" seven and a half feet. - Princeton University

I remember in school studied about Patagones tribe, now it seems to be converted in a "mitical tribe" and instead the Magallanes encounter was with the Tehuelches and Onas, but they were really tall, not mitical tall :)

And the photographic evidence! Most stories I've read of giants describe 6 fingers and 6 toes. I tried counting digits on your posted pics but most of the giants had their hands covered. A few did not and they only had the usual 5 & 5. Not a debunking, just an observation.

Now you mention it, i see some anomalys in the Onas feets, maybe is my imagination

Also i can see 6 fingers o this Tehuelche (i'm at work, seeing the pics in Paint) maybe somebody can see it better with another software.

Was reading about the Smithsonian ordered by SCOTUS to admit and reveal their hidden giant fossils/artifacts. Seems that is a well-debunked bit of fake news.
American Institute of Alternate Archaeology spokesman, James Churchward said:
"There has been a major cover up by Western archaeological institutions since the early 1900's to make us believe that America was first colonized by Asian peoples migrating through the Bering strait 15,000 years ago, when in fact, there are hundreds of thousands of burial mounds all over America which the Natives claim were there a long time before them, and that show traces of a highly developed civilization, complex use of metal alloys and where giant human skeleton remains are frequently found but still go unreported in the media and news outlets he explains."

Doing a google search on this topic will give you several pages of sources for this oft-repeated story. A little research will reveal that the original source of this fantasy is World Net Daily who, according to WND is a "website for information and entertainment only. WNDR shall not be responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information. WNDR assumes however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content.” At the very bottom of the page is revealed, “New World Order Media @ Copyright 2016.”

The above picture is a sculpture of a reported but not seen bone said to exist but never produced as evidence. WND reports that the American Institute of Alternative Archaeology (a fictional entity that does not exist on any search engine) was sued for defamation by the Smithsonian. The SCOTUS records show no such case ever existed. The imaginary lawsuit alleges that AIAA spokesman, James Churchward was vindicated by the non-existent SCOTUS ruling in his favor. Since there is no AIAA, they have no spokesman.***Although there was a historical person named James Churchward (1851-1936) whose bio on the net makes him seem interesting enough to read up on). As much as I'd like this story to be true, it just isn't. There IS plenty of evidence, photographs, current news reports, Native American legends, journal entries of pioneers/explorers, etc. to strongly suggest that giants did at one time exist and, no doubt, some were sent to the Smithsonian, the museum denies having any giant bones and no lawsuit has forced them to reveal the bones they say they don't have. Sorry.

In Genesis 6:4 we're told that "There were giants in the earth in those days....". There's also the Biblical story of David and the giant Goliath and the one of Og, King of Basham, whose measurements are not given but his bed was 13-1/2 ft. long. If you think everything in the bible is fiction, there's also the reports by the New York Times, the Huffington Post and others with accepted bonafides. And there are modern day examples.

Of Giants - Rumors, Myths and Reality
The Tallest Man - Kurt Zehe

First reported in the 4 May 1912 issue of the New York Times the 18 skeletons found by the Peterson brothers on Lake Lawn Farm in southwest Wisconsin exhibited several strange and freakish features.

Huffington Post Weird News Executive Editor Buck Wolf poses in 2009 with Sultan Kosen of Turkey. Kosen, tallest man in the world, was one of a handful of people who were measured at over 8 feet tall.

Man-Eating Giants Discovered in Nevada Cave
(San Diego Union news 1947) Turns out these mummies were only 5'9 but the medical doctor who studied human anatomy and physiology for 8 years mistook them for 8-9' tall giants. Perfectly understandable. He was retired and probably half blind anyway. The fact that they were red-headed upset the BLM who insisted on burying them as Native Americans so that happened. Sacred Native American land...no trespassing. As far as I can tell Dr. Viola Pettit never inspected the remains although others did. More interesting to me is the hieroglyphics chiseled on carefully polished granite as well as the devices and markings similar to those now used by the Masonic order. What are the odds of finding something like that on remains estimated to be about 80,000 years old?

Nevada Historical Society in 1948 received 31 mummies found in a cave and purported (and measured) to be giants. Being ever so grateful, the Nevada Historical Society promptly "misplaced" 31 mummies but not before analyzing them and determining that they were 5'5-6'1 (not giants). They did manage to retain the fiber sandals which measured over 15" long. Since the donor of the mummies, John T. Reid, was only a mining engineer and amateur archaeologist he can be forgiven for not noticing that his "giants" were about his size although when he measured them they were much taller. It's a well-known fact that all giant mummies and skeletons shrink when they enter a museum. Keep that in mind as it happens a lot. You have to read several different articles from different sources about this story before you find the relevant tidbit of there being human-sized bones found at the entrance to the cave which had been cannibalized for their marrow (as is the legends of the Paiute Indians who claimed to have trapped the cannibalistic giants in caves and suffocated them with fire/smoke). Most of the articles don't mention the deep soot on the walls of the cave or the many Paiute style arrows also found in the cave. My question for the Nevada Historical Society is.....which bones did you measure-the Paiute cannibalized victims found at the cave entrance or the big guys huddled in the back that choked to death on smoke?

As of 1945 giant skeletons were on display in some museums. In 1682, a giant 7ft. 7in. was exhibited in Dublin. A Swede 8ft 6in.
Fix was in the bodyguard of a king of Prussia. A human skeleton 8ft. 6in.' is preserved in the museum of Trinity College, Dublin. (now hidden in the anatomy department rather than in their museum)

Bombed at the Age of 4841 Years
Ra Nefer, Egyptian noble 4811 years ago, was bombed in a recent raid on London. His mummy, oldest in the world, was the show piece of Royal College of Surgeons museum in Lincoln's Inn Fields. Bones of Queen Berengaria, Richard Couer-de-Leon's consort, and skeletons of a giant and a 19in. dwarf were also in the museum. Skulls of murderers are among hundreds of specimens destroyed. Most of the famous Hunterian collection, built up by Dr. J. Hunter, founder of modern surgery, was buried under fire-swept debris. (July, 1941) Isn't that always the way? Burned, bombed, bankrupted, or bought out and hidden away.

Antediluvian Giants.
Remains of what is believed to have been a prehistoric race of American giants were discovered not long ago by divers who descended to. the bottom of Silver Springs, near Ocala, Florida. The human skeletons, found in submerged burial chamber, were so large that persons who viewed them expressed the belief that the men of the primitive race attained a height of seven feet. Along with the bones, said to have lain undisturbed for 2500 years, were discovered, many tools, weapons, and ornaments. Among the finds were clay pots , and idols, bone needles, flint arrow-heads, and fragments of jewelry. The springs also yielded one relic of more recent date a seventeenth century flint-lock musket that may have been used by a Spanish explorer.***Those artifacts do not sound to me like the accouterments of a master builder race.

From the descriptions of some of the stories of giants, it sounds like there might be 2 different sorts of giants...the technologically advanced master builder guys on one end of the spectrum and these lumbering, sloped forehead cannibalistic cavemen on the other end of the spectrum. At any rate, there's plenty of them around even as late as 1900. Now they're gone, their artifacts and hieroglyphic writings are gone and no official source has ever heard of them.
I've been to the museums in my area(s) and even asking nicely will not get you in to see any giant fossil remains. It will get you your own security escort for the remainder of your tour, though, so there's that. :)

Interesting that there are like two pictures of this device only. @Hardy, lol, you should have started a separate thread for this thing.


And the same story continues.

The company which had organized in 1886 to build the telescope declared bankruptcy after the Expo, and the telescope was put up for auction in 1909. No buyer was found and eventually the components were scrapped.

Since it was built for exhibit purposes within a large metropolis, and its design made it difficult to aim at astronomical objects, it was not suited for scientific use. When the year-long exposition was over, its builders were unable to sell it. It was ultimately broken up for scrap;
A focal lenth of that size you should be able to see the big bang. Built for exhibition and of no use? Lool :)
