Thought you guys would find this interesting.

Update: The ethics of this website are considered questionable. But the pictures are interesting.

Every mouse click you make on this questionable (monetized) site earns revenue to this person who owns it and several other websites.
Anthropologist Andy White is very critical of this person, and writes, "If I wanted to argue for the existence of giants and I wanted to still sound like a reasonable person, I would avoid basing my arguments for giants on racial typologies that went out style along with slavery, eugenics, and World War II-era Nazism."

"(I)t's the Myth of the Moundbuilders all over again (i.e., the notion that white people, not Native Americans, were responsible for building the earthen monuments of eastern North America). What's new here is the attempt to use discredited racial "science" to somehow bridge the gaps of space and time between the New World and the Old, and between a "race of giants" and normal human variation. Haphazardly invoking antiquated racial typologies doesn't make the case stronger," as White ends his entry on his blog post.
