Re: Quebec Teen Uses Stars to Locate Possible Lost Mayan City

It's a super-cool find, even if it'll turn out to be a bunch of rock (and I don't think so, since everything suggests otherwise). What amazes me is the logic he used to track down the site, hard to believe that is a coincidence the fact that exactly where he assumed there was something, there's actually something.

It'll be interesting to see if they ever send archaeologists in there. Love his logic: astronomy + Mayans = possible site.

Poor kid. May have inadvertently found a Mexican pot farming operation.

Can see this being made into a movie - only he doesn't tell authorities, he treks out there himself to uncover it, having great adventures, and befriending a small orphaned monkey along the way.
