    [–] Archaeologists of Reddit, what are some latest discoveries that the masses have no idea of? DefinitelyAverage 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Very true! We are in a constant battle with St. Augustine to claim who was technically the first city lol. Unfortunately, much of sixteenth-century St. Augustine has been destroyed. Most of the artifacts found in excavations date to the eighteenth century. I can only hope that one day they'll find an intact early settlement site!

    So he brought about 1500 people (Europeans, Aztecs, and mulattos) to the Pensacola region to gain a footing in this region because every other explorer failed to do so (short story, they all died). Anyways, they had about 12 ships and a couple months after landing a hurricane came through a decimated them. They tried trekking to nearby and faraway native villages for supplies. All in all, only a couple hundred people survived. They were basically stranded for 2 years.

    Well de Soto came through about 20 years prior and fucked them over. So I'm sure when Luna sailed by they were not stoked. Haha.

    I think it will gain more popularity in the coming decades. I mean, the settlement was only found 3 years ago. There's no maps of the settlement to show where anything was, so we are just blindly reconstructing everything. And hopefully more ships will be found as well -- this summer fingers crossed!!! The Pensacola public is already obsessed with it, as is Spain, so I think it will spread in the coming years :)

    I'm surprised at the mass amount of people that haven't heard of the Luna Settlement in Pensacola, FL. It was the first European multi-year settlement in the country and dates to 1559! The story is tragic and we have the unique opportunity to not only investigate the land settlement, but also the shipwrecks right off the coast.

    Additionally, I am working on a Native American site across the bay this summer. We are trying to see if natives were present during Luna's time here because it appears that the natives just peaced out when they saw his ships rolling up through the bay, which may explain why they didn't help him and his company. Very cool history here. Highly recommend looking it up.

    I'll be so pissed if their story line continues to be ignored. I think that ship has sailed though :(

    [–] [SPOILERS] Post-Episode Discussion - Season 8 Episode 4 DefinitelyAverage 17 points ago in gameofthrones

    Thank you! My boyfriend and I got into a fight over this. That plot just ended after being built up for 7+ seasons. He says it's because the show is about the "Game of Thrones," not white walkers. I call bullshit. Just feels like a memory of a side plot now, which is super disappointing.

    [–] [SPOILERS] Post-Episode Discussion - Season 8 Episode 4 DefinitelyAverage 3 points ago in gameofthrones

    Right? Their story lined was completely dropped off. I get that it's the "Game of Thrones," but Jesus......give us something. I mean, I get who he was and whatnot, but I need more. Is he really dead? Are there more white walkers in the north? If so, his death didn't actually kill them all. That's probably my biggest tiff with this season. I just feel like that entire story line was just unimportant or moot. Maybe the books will give more information. This season just feels way too rushed.

    Same! Every kid got to hold the DARE bear, but it somehow missed me every time. I'm still so salty about it.

    [–] TIFU by catching my dad perving on my girlfriend in the shower DefinitelyAverage 166 points ago in tifu

    I mean I get that he's your dad, but I agree with other people. You can't dismiss it because he's socially awkward. I've had a peeper/stalker spy on me in my family and it's fucked up. You don't know what could happen in the future, he could completely change gears for the worst. Sit him down and keep your girlfriend safe.

    [–] Dangerous drivers DefinitelyAverage 3 points ago in Pensacola

    I've seen people watching YouTube videos and streaming TV shows and movies! I just don't get it. One guy had his TABLET on top of the steering wheel and he'd peek around it to see the road. I don't get how this stuff slides with the police. And it really frustrates me when they're so preoccupied with their devices that they just don't move when the light turns green. I never used to be a honker, but I am since I've moved here. It's ridiculous.

    [–] Dangerous drivers DefinitelyAverage 8 points ago in Pensacola

    You're the first person I've seen that mentions phones. Every bad driver I see is phone related. Just recently I saw a girl on her phone as we were trying to turn left on campus (UWF). The light turned green, we start going and she drives straight onto the sidewalk and into an embankment. She just put it in reverse and acted like nothing happened. Imagine if a student had been walking there. I just moved here in the summer and I've never been so scared to drive anywhere else in my life.

    [–] looking to move to Pensacola DefinitelyAverage 2 points ago in Pensacola

    Actually, I take my previous answer back. The Fountains near UWF are nice (at least the one floor, one bedroom units are) and they're $625/month I think. Maybe call some local real estate agents, too. They may have more of an in on what might not be shown online.

    I live in a one bedroom for $700/month. It's terrible. You can't find anything nice for that cheap around here in my experience.

    [–] I moved from Pensacola to the mountains DefinitelyAverage 4 points ago in Pensacola

    I just recently moved to Pensacola from Missouri. I miss the rolling hills and beautiful rivers from time to time. But now I'm on a vacation in Alaska, and while the mountains are so beautiful, I miss Pensacola. It's so much warmer!

    [–] Best volunteer opportunities for solo helpers DefinitelyAverage 4 points ago in Pensacola

    Open Books is a great program that I volunteer with occasionally. It's ran through a local library. They basically send books to prisoners all over the state. The prisoners will mail them a letter requesting specific books or a genre and you will try to fulfill their request to the best of your abilities. It's not hard. You either pull the books or you will get them ready to be mailed.

    [–] maybe-stupid question about conference attire? DefinitelyAverage 7 points ago in GradSchool

    I am also in the humanities field. When I've attended conferences, I just wear a nice pair of jeans, a nice top, and flats. When I've presented a poster or whatnot, I wear dress pants and nice top with flats. Where I'm from, other people would wear all sorts of things. Some will be dressed up, and others will be wearing worn out jeans and a t-shirt -- it really depends on the person! But it sounds like you already know what you're doing! Don't stress. Good luck :)

    [–] What's an 'oh shit' moment where you realised you've been doing something the wrong way for years? DefinitelyAverage 2 points ago in AskReddit

    If it makes you feel any better, I was too afraid to tell my mom that I had started my period, so I rocked the wadded up toilet paper for maybe a year. And then I thought I'd try tampons, but I didn't know you were supposed to push them out of applicator.... Luckily this only lasted a couple months. You can imagine my face when I accidentally pushed it out, thought I broke it, and then realized that that would be much easier to use.

    [–] People who aren't dog people, why aren't you? DefinitelyAverage 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Dude. I'm dog sitting for my friends for the next week. They have 2 huskies. Today is the first day and it is just so exhausting to go over there and let them out 3 times a day. They have to keep them in one room or else they'll destroy the house and this morning there was pee and poop all over the floor. And there's no way in hell that I'm going over there at 6 am to let them out. I'm already so tired of this haha. I am a cat person through and through.

    Yeah. I've done a few small things, but it's still just not enough. I need to get out of my funk. Thanks for commenting though and also making this post :)

    [–] What's a movie you refuse to watch for one reason or another? DefinitelyAverage 1 points ago in AskReddit

    My boyfriend's friend refuses to ever watch Titanic simply to just be able to say that he's never seen it. I don't get it.
