Also known as the Kingdom of Daughters, the Mosuo Tribe have been in existence for the past two thousand years in the Lugu Lake region of Southern China.
In the Mosuo tribe, women rule. To such an extent that their language doesn’t even have a word for ‘father’. Property is handed down from mother to daughter, and sons are treated as simple inhabitants of the house. Even after they are married with children of their own, the men continue to live in their maternal homes, while children live in the home of the mother. In fact, there isn’t even a concept of formal marriage. Couples who fall in love meet in the home of the woman, and continue to refer to each other as ‘friends’. Vows and bonds have no place in a “walking marriage” system where mutual affection is valued.

The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert of southern Peru. Created by the Nazca culture between 400 and 650 AD, the hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized animals. The problem is, these lines and animals can only be seen from aerial view. That is, the Nazca people had to have the technology to create these figures, and they had to have someone to project them too.

Perhaps the strangest of these lines is the figure of a hominid with two large eyes and a helmet, pictured:
