    We cannot confirm or deny that. It is hush hush after all.

    Right there is a really good example of why I don't own a welder. I would get into so much trouble.

    Acorns were a dietary staple for Native Americans in California for thousands of years. Acorns were gathered inf the fall of the year and stored for long periods. Processing was very similar to the methods already described in this thread - separate the hulls from the meat, grind up the meat, leach it a time or two (different varieties of oak have different degrees of bitterness), dry, and consume and store for long periods. Even today, you find an oak grove in a valley with a flowing stream, and chances are you will also find bedrock mortars (cylindrical holes ground into rocky outcrops) . I have never eaten acorn meal, but evidently it was substantial and filling, but rather bland, much like oatmeal.
