I'm not sure _exactly_ what that figure is doing, but it was worth looking for the laugh I had out of it.

Unless your capitalisation is meant to refer the things in the films (the article was doing it sensationalist headline style,) then it does, actually.

Nah, that would also require italics.

I think he's just pissed because Lewis wrote something that wasn't about disproving AGW and he can't rant about what an imbecilic moron Lewis is.

No it doesnt:

extraterrestrial: outside, or originating outside, the limits of the earth.

alien: a creature from outer space

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the second part of the Pandorica two-parter should take place in Mecca. It was one of the first things that I thought of.

(Note, really - it's what it reminded me of).

Re: What happened to X-files references

Fringe? It made it to a second season? Its drivel and stuffed full of cliches and I couldn't get past two episodes. I watched because someone, who was clearly out of his mind, said it was a cross of the X files and Lost.

Fringe has had 5 seasons, and is a cult favourite. But I guess if someone doesn't like something, it's automatically crap...

Alien origin...

Reading the headline, I was hoping that at last there was proof of aliens, and not just another stupid meteoritic rock carved into a statue... Shame on you for getting my hopes up! :)

Re: Alien origin...

Not to call into question our esteemed Mr Page or El Reg but it would raise more than one eyebrow if the existence of extra-terrestrials was first announced on this site. Though I would rather they get it than the Daily Mail who would undoubtedly title the article "More immigrants may be on the way" ;)

Or do I have it wrong? Is El Reg on NASAs speed dial list?

Re: Alien origin...

If anything, El Reg's headline on this is understated compared to the BBC, who have it on their website today as "Nazi Buddha originally from space" on the "Most Popular" sidebar. Nearly as good as my all time fave (from the Jo'burg Star, back in 1998), "Ex-President Banana, guilty of Sodomy, slips into Botswana"

'Himmler's Crusade' by Chris Hale has the story of this expedition

And what the participants got up to after they got back to Germany (slight spoiler - not a happy ending).

Looks like he's sat in a Time Machine. Maybe the Nazi survivors didn't go to South America after all.

History repeating itself?

"Schaefer roamed Tibet in 1938-9 to search for the origins of Aryanism, the notion of racial superiority that underpinned Nazism."

Rather like people today roam the Arctic looking for evidence of Global Warming, the notion of moral superiority that underpins Renewable Energy ?

Re: History repeating itself?

"Rather like people today roam the Arctic looking for evidence ...." Reminds me of Voltaire's satirical couplet on the French mission to the Arctic to investigate gravitational anomalies or variation:

Those who chose in Arctic wastes to roam

Proved what Newton knew, who stayed at home.

Probably sounded even better in French!

Heinrich Himmler was the Reichsführer SS, the highest SS rank and equivalent to field marshal. The chief of the luftwaffe Hermann Göring had the higher rank of Reichsmarschall since he was the second in line after Hitler.
