him as a civil engineer with the rank of it ok he was sent to Nicaragua to survey for a canal to be built through the country ok just how deep it didn't happen but also when you do that you just like that works why I write this and be a good place for now what about from their ass that's how it works exactly alright I'm an at home in the digging the footing of the building and now this are now well enough this one but exactly where they serve it but there they started building account couple years ago in Nicaragua that he was sent to do the can now he was there from eighteen eighty flicker the odd lot yet because it separated because no because there's water now I got it he was there from eighteen eighty four to eighteen eighty five and worked as an assistant engineer and then became

had attempted and failed to find a Northwest passage in eighteen eighteen when he was in Greenland he noticed the new it had iron ok now the in the matter are the people yes they are in agreement or less so they aren't and that's the buzz was what they were formally if that's offensive now those Eskimo offensive I thought well I mean shit you know yea i beli I Believe It's Not Okay I think in you it is the eight except for an Eskimo I mean this like Eskimo pies that is a beautiful thing about our cultures are like sorry that we made a product when it was okay oh no sir we made Coon cheese before sorry Redskins is now in school history the Coon cheese yeah it's great they use shards of iron to make her spoons knives and other tools obviously this was a very important in Greenland because there's very little wood there and the only other common substance to make tools with was bone so Ross is very cute curious about where they got there i are ok they told him it came from a faraway mountain but not would not tell him where because they needed it and obviously they didn't trust him yeah I mean look they were from guys here's the call you always make if you're not white don't tell the light where the thing is never tell the white where they don't tell the light with the stuff is that you need if we could go back and tell people in history anything it's Don't Tell the white guy anything don't let the light know a thing ok so Tuesday prospect or I'm wondering with that delightful hires come from why to appease or to show me Mattias man Alec in Ross ended up going back to England with just some of the EU its tools in his report to the British Museum he mentioned that there was meteoric material and the tools at our priority I don't I don't like the game plan this was one of the things that Pete Pier ease curiosity in me want to cut what we call a teary Cleary April eighteen eighty six period wrote a paper for the National Academy of Sciences proposing methods for crossing Greenland ice cap and head off that year ok he wants do it alone but a Danish official explained and convinced Pier E that he would die if he did it alone yeah who wants to go in to the judge of the day at a good life you are the the the of the Danish guy joined him and hear his mom gave him five hundred dollars to buy supplies last ok Mommy I'd like to go to the OU are some of the guys are being mean about the equipment that I got Sarah the actors are good man did it all the of the North Pole anymore the guy I say his home thank you MJ they went taken it about a hundred miles across screen them before turning back because they didn't have enough food how does the like the first time I've heard that how lucky I over pack but I think they're treated like sock the piece so many fail was no gas and home the recipe for disaster and is getting tons of tomatoes it's like when you decide to take the one you like have no gas left in you decide to push the freeway yeah it's like that but with survival and food with your wife in eighteen eighty six pay periods met Josephine the sheets sorry of the dips its baby sheets where he met Justin dip shit i wish its died he sheds I shall die by the die by Shi'ite the you know actually die by God I did what's his name here though and will return home God died it really is died in eighteen eighty six her name is Joseph and I did know didn't marry or choose a very smart progressive woman Dave is going to take me a minute but no names are great die bitch or of that is it's this one that we're going to give the name in America ah what you're there I'd I'd be a shock the ghetto lor she's very smart progressive issues of business school valedictorian believe women should be the of this school the MS died the edge of the women who work in jobs that are just mothers when they met she was working at the Smithsonian Institution she's taken over for her father's position as a linguist Doctor die bitch talk to Mr. Mister Doctor Davis giving this to die bitch yeah they call name is Daisy she resigned from the Smithsonian when she and Perry got engaged that kind of flies in the face the whole yes it should be out of the Hope and working right but right away so they married in eighteen eighty eight and honeymoon Atlantic City oh gosh longer fun out on Perry's mother went on honeymoon with them I was Everett Everett died it's more me as usual we were to put it okay um oh what a super awkward God I mean clearly was connected to his mind his dad yeah we don't have a cot to share the bed with the Army's good sleep in bed don't worry she watched me do my ambitions and Miri was assigned a Philadelphia with the newlyweds oh god strangely Justin appears mom didn't get along yeah I yeah you know that you know the deal you don't even need you know the deal right away the mom I mean talk about a perfect last day for the munchies like Die bitch indeed just being told periods mom should go back to Maine but he'll even better idea to get the situation which was to go back to Greenland which appear he did in nineteen ninety one this time the eighteen ninety was in eighteen ninety when the sun hit a lot of funding from different scientific groups he took a more difficult route heading more to try to determine if he could get to the North Pole through Greenland say Steve is taking a route that's more doable but seems they would work better now the first time when East met the in the woods and found about the iron that was in Greenland he's in the same guy that was the first of four that went there okay I just read about a book gotcha Okay so they're sober man on the Strip including future Explorer Frederick Cook ok he was assigned as the surgeon and he brought Josephine as this is the cook sorry surgeon he has been as the group's dietitian even though she had zero experience as one ok so Cook was a doctor and I that was the cook that's great okay newspapers attacked purity for bringing the trip didn't start well as the ship they were on was cutting through sheets of ice the ships iron Tiller suddenly spun around and snapped both bones in periods lower leg oh shit so I said What didn't start well I really meant it didn't start well how do you keep going on a mission for iron after Iron cuts to your leg it's it's a sign it's that good it's the thoughts of what you guys so they stopped the camp and built him a building and then he stayed there recovered for six months it's okay if they don't have a little recovery say he did it not okay not much for the mission that we're A OK resident Hans and I flew by boat and it just got to know the nearby knew it okay Perry began dressing like you knew it which he he realized based on their last trip that was the way to go so they covered themselves in for a base for right ok the Inn you are curious about the Americans came to visit the camp just of the team did not like the way they smell ok it did not base well that I I I get the smell thing though it's probably from not bathing she's also upset that they had fleas I and she did not like what they ate okay so she's not having a good experience enjoy this an alright Perry's leg was fun the good was your mom now I can she come now for this part Gray's latest on the go in February eighteen ninety two yeah I'm a thirty to ninety two he found headed out on the journey with four and fell on a big thing of I am broken they concluded that Greenland was an island overall they traveled one thousand two hundred and fifty miles Josephine had a baby while he was on his journey well because he was seen doing or sit around a broken leg re do it is okay hot stuff ha why they named her Marie and the GTO Pier E She She was given a new middle name after name you a woman who sewed the baby a tiny for snow suit ok adorable adorable they return home not found the North Pole however peer e still yearned for what he really really wanted which was funny during this time they knew it he had learned of the iron tools they use in figured if he can find it that that would bring him the fame he wanted he achieved that we're talking about him right he still wanna be the first North Pole but he figured if he could come back with some discovery trophy of any kind that might work as well at the time or explorers are heading to Greenland trying to find the North Pole that meant the new it were finding people to trade with which made the iron from their source less crucial okay and that may have been why one very stupid man brought pier E two C location of the of the media writes on periods next expedition of nineteen ninety nope together do this now here he gave him one God hahahs I would see later years out of self I I ah don't tell the light cheery and the trader in you it is and I'm saying he's a traitor yes nod and AIT oh yeah that traveled for eleven days and twenty five miles to get to two small meteorites the eighty would call them the woman and the dog I assume that's because the way they're shaped or sized for a new one one barked and the other one was like Does the condition since I was maternal this is the one that raised me and this is my best friend there is meteorite on a separate island knows not to grab the tent the tent to know God's gonna be this happy in this they're crawling inside we live in you each was surrounded by thousands of hammer stones which the new it had brought for hundreds of years to carve the media writes this was something that the better part of the EU its lives for generations I mean yes go ahead Terry decided to take them yep I am going somewhere and finding a race of people that had rely on something and going I get is at Here it's What it but it's what it's what his street like it's what history is is and always will be is the guy who finally just like was like What if I was a huge prick I do that's the worst thing we know you know I think the problem is that it would have never met a huge ass all get out of here but our generations I know screw them I wanna be famous the disputed against the home are headed back to ship to get around to where the meter is where I got to work the woman was put on an ice flow which was used to transport it to the ship the man the mother one yeah read what woman's home in the face of Mother but halfway there the ice broke and no heater it was almost last season ended very quickly put the safety from the ice cold water can you imagine if they'd just seen by what you are sitting on the shore watching and saying going whoa what's going on not knowing that he was going to take it as you just thinking media rights but he got on the ship and off it went to be a spectacle for white people instead of a viable resource for generations of humans well Dave he quickly returned the next year and took the smallest meteorite called dog but the tent was going to be the hardest one it was more than eleven feet long it's a fuckin Levin for your guests leave it it's a meteor I the base surrounding island that's all I'm learning to say based on the island that Amazon was frozen for the majority of the year so he had a small time window to get in there and steal that he had to wait until the time was me right that's correct the first time he tried to steal tent and yet not do it in time in the time they had and the ship served to freeze and I so had to abandon the attempt the next year came back in eighteen ninety six began with the goal stealing the tent there was a photographer on this trip so the entire things documented he also had kept handwritten notes explaining everything so they had to dislodge the tent and moved three hundred feet men drag the huge meteorite with chains wrapped around it pulled over the rocky shore and across now they built a short rail bridge from the shore to the ship and push the giant rock across and was finally on board an American flag was draped over the ah ah like a corpse coming back from war and dry the wood we found then drag another thing was saying is on as that was actually somebody else well that that's who's going to say what's the what is the inward response is I mean it can't be great they have to belive it I would imagine but that's the prob it's like the I like like you said you don't understand how somebody could so Cavalier Lee be like they think they're so fuckin superior what they its OS I mean I would and I go there be a Gaelic Iraq yet again of different era picture yet but I think picture by the ice and we will be there on the steak and yummy amount of thought was what physicists of okay whoa what if there was no show what they do they actually took a huge meteorite yeah I was called Tree I get real so right so they put American flag on it and peer ease young daughter broke a bottle of wine against the rocks are a bit with her middle name or her name is Mary Perry Mary at and gt tok veri veri veri yet interesting yeah me enough chairs so to make things worse Perry been asked by Franz most at the Natural History Museum York to bring back was living in you it was forced to Dave David Niall no thing for them in this I know if you shut up shut your mouth shut your mouth shut about the needs of the crash at your mouth give me something that I can get me that is what is amazing like now I miss when media rights were being stolen I take what the ends are a you know what you as I was sad that i do wad said they want to bring back one of the human is what it does bring back one time I'll bring you here number Look at What am I looking into eyes that see ears nose mouth and then maybe you know look at his brain a little Yeah no no they're not humans so got everyone knows humans back yet the good looking one till here e apparently didn't think that one would be enough so he decided to make a batch of humans from another place oh my god you can know a man named Chris Epps and his young son Minnick also a chapped and Rama his wife and his daughter and another guy is named the U S Soccer Soccer US sack the sack so the six people come with them how they all they would have quote nice warm house is in the sunshine and guns and knives and needles and many other things and he's taking them to New York right oh yea gotta love it very rustic the gear super sunny we can get you guys back to some hear me right here in our kitchen you love

year okies how to convince them to come well he had stolen their meaty right so they were in need of things now so young Minnick would later give his description of what happened quote Mr period came to us twelve years ago we had never seen a white man at the start Perry was kind enough to my people he made the presence of ornaments a few knives and guns for hunting and wood to build slats ledges but sin has worked but as soon as he was ready to start home his other work began before eyes he packed up the bones of our dead friends and ancestors so he starts digging up bodies cookies like these
