Sounds like a great idea, and I am an Archaeologist too. It would just be one of those things you’d have to laugh at!

Interesting Thought

Assuming:
1) superstitions are culturally bound syndromes
2) therefore they are only valid within that specific culture

Question:
Despite superstitions being culturally bound syndromes can one culture apply them to a person of a different culture. For example the aborigines in Australia have social death; if a witch doctor points a bone of a specific animal at you you die instantly, therefore you are cast out and denied food and water cause you are “dead”. This is a cultural thing but can such things be applied to non-aborigines?

Reason fire trucks are red

Fire trucks are red because they have 4 people in them and 8 wheels and that makes 12. There are 12 inches on a ruler and Queen Elizabeth was a ruler. Queen Elizabeth is also the name of a ship. Ships float in the sea and there are fish in the sea.fish have fins and the Finns fought the Russians. The Russians are always red and because a fire truck is always “Russian” around it is therefore and properly red in color. Simple as that.
