A Hot Lead
Wed Apr 4, 2018 3:32pm

The San Vicente pair could have been the Skipper and Gilligan. Anyone looked into that? Its a hotter lead than it being Butch and Sundance. :)

    Be on the look out for a white tall fat male with a turned up nose. His accomplice is a white short ugly guy with a turned up nose...... Sounds like Penn and Teller not Butch and Sundance.

        It could be Lloyd and Harry.

          Brett, I can't believe for years people fell for this garbage of a story. The inquest papers are there for them to read, the descriptions, etc. Anyone with half a brain can see it is not them. Yet... more

            Part two: Let's look at the medio ˝ato question from another angle, etymology and usage of the word ˝ato. Warning, there's no simple answer. An 1875 dictionary says ˝ato origin is Quechua, ˝anppi,... more

            Chris, Let's look at the bright side, the "medios natos" question is an excuse to brush up on our nasal morphometrics. At the time we were translating the Expediente, a bi-lingual Bolivian rendered... more

              In Roger's version he says a Rubio is a light skinned Spaniard. So it could be a spaniard with blue eyes and lighter hair plus a shorter nose than the indian natives. Or andeans. Since Pero did not... more

                Pat, The Expediente was compiled November 1908 to March 1909 by the Tupiza district attorney. That's the original, the document we are working off of, the one I am quoting from. There is no mention... more

                  Excellent comments. We have the same problem in trying to translate some fine points in Biblical texts. This has led me to wonder if you can comment on the point Christ brought up about the word... more

                    Vince, biblical translations have fueled disputes for hundreds of years, and will for hundreds more. Of course, in that case we trying to understand the word of God (supposedly.) Here we're trying... more

                      Again, good reasoning. And I definitely understand the issue w/regional dialects. (There were like 30 regional dialects of Aramaic so when someone asks a question like, "How would that translate from ... more

                      Dan, I dont normally rate guys, but I think that both Sundance and Butch were both in the category of handsome guys. To judge one a little uglier, to me doesn't make sense if it were the outlaws. You ... more

                    Christ wasn't white and blond either or hanked a pug nose.

                      You were there and saw what He looked like? Other than supposing He looked something like the guy on the Shroud of Turin, I have mo idea what Jesus looked like or what color His hair or complexion... more

              Dan, Thanks for chiming in, however, Im not buying it. The nose is but one description that is dissimilar to the two outlaws. The only thing these two deceased hoodlums had in common with Butch and... more
