7 to 8 foot tall with a double row of teeth ?

This video represents more of a historical view of Giants and the where and when the skeletal remains were found coupled with the historical documents to back up the claims. Many of us today would be a giant to those who were living in the 17th and 18th century as most men were barely 5'4" as seen by going on any old sailing ship below decks.

The double row of teeth always in my mind added a bit of spook factor to the story but according to the video, "Nope" the teeth were the real deal.

I recall stories of 8 to 8 1/2 foot tall giants with double rows of teeth found in Ohio, West Virginia (Moundsville was one location) and western Pennsylvania.

While it's true that they believe Denisovans came from Hedelbergensis, they also believe the Neanderthals came from Heidelbergensis, and Modern humans from either Heidelbergensis or their immediate ancestors.

The Shawnee had legends of giants with red hair in Kentucky, but I never heard how many teeth they had. The Shawnee called them "Azgens", and claim to have eradicated them.

I've read just about everything that John Smith and Strachey wrote from the colonization of Virginia, and am familiar with all 4 of the accounts of the de Soto expedition, but don't recall anything about giants as the first speaker claimed. I'll have to dig deeper.
“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

A friend of mine was related to "Saginaw Joe".


Quote:Researcher D. Laurence Rogers and Juliana L'Heureux' suggested a connection between Paul Bunyan and the French-Canadian lumberjack Fabian Fournier. From 1865 to 1875, Fournier worked for the H. M. Loud Company near Grayling, Michigan.

    Born in Quebec around 1845, Fournier went to Michigan after the Civil War. He was a large, strong man who was good with a double-bit axe. Fournier was said to be six feet tall and had large, powerful hands. Fournier was a true Michigan legend himself known by the nickname Saginaw Joe. He was large in stature and known to be an outstanding lumberjack. He also was said to have two sets of teeth, and was a tough guy willing to pick a fight. He eventually died in 1875 after a bar fight in Bay City Michigan.

Those French Canadians were always mixing it up with the natives back in the day. Perhaps Saginaw Joe had some of those giant genes in his blood line. My friend had normal teeth by the way.
