I was reading some cool stuff about the Iceman today. And no, I’m not talking about some hitman for the mob (although…he does have a certain “look” about him).
Oetzi was about 159cm tall (5ft 2.5in), 46 years old, arthritic, and infested with whipworm.
But he still netted German hikers Erika and Helmut Simon $216,000.
The discovery of Oetzi in 1991 in the Northern Italian Alps is old news, but I had never heard the amount that the people who found him actually received before. Wow. It pays to keep your eyes open when you’re hiking.
Here’s the article the picture was taken from: Oetzi the Iceman’s nuclear genome gives new insights
I swear I’ve seen that guy before…
