Crystal Skull Vodka

Apologies for the abscence, friends! Field work and all that. We'll ramp back up to an actual posting schedule. BUT FIRST! BEHOLD:

What the hell!?! Take a closer look here.

McCain - Starchild?

Apparently McCain is on record saying that the Phoenix Lights were "UFOs". Take a peek.

I'm hoping that he gets the wolloped, just like Kucinich did for his UFO deal.

Apocolypse Never

The Telegraph, an English Newspaper, has a list of 10 Doomsdays that came and went. In honor of us surviving the LHC on-switching, I thought I'd share. Interestingly (or not...) all of the World Enders on the Telegraph's list are crazy cults or nutball religious sects. It's a good list for that sort of thing, but I wonder about the more "secular" apolypsemongers, like the anti-LHCers out there.

Anybody out in the blogosphere know of some non-religious or non-cultish Doomsayers who came and went?

Or not. Check it out!

The LHC has finished cooling down, and is up and running; today, early in the European morning (which has a funny accent and drinks more expensive coffee than our bumpkin-y American mornins) particles were accelerated to 99.99% the speed of light, and sent hurdling around the 17 mile track in hopes of recreating the conditions that existed in the first few seconds after the Big Bang.

AND they did it without blowing up the universe, or creating hellish vortexes for Cthulhu to crawl through, or whatever else doomsday scenarios the nutjob anti-LHCers were talking about. Maybe those scientists knew what they were talkin' about after all, huh?

Anyway, it is an exciting day in the world of particle physics (specifically) and for humanity (more generally). Here's to learning more about our amazing universe!

And better luck next time, insane anti-science kooks!

UFO Tours

Following in the proud, capitalist tradition of creating tourist-trap hellholes for people to visit in otherwise beautiful parts of the world, the town of San Clemente, Chile, has recently opened up it's very own "UFO Trail", complete with it's very own UFO Landing site and, I'm sure, souvenir giftshops full of gaudy alien stuff.

The trail is a 30 km-long stretch that includes El Enladrillado, a flat stretch of basaltic volcanic rock that is a landing site for UFOs.

See, its a landing site, because its so flat; nothing in nature is EVER flat on its own, ergo, it was obviously made by aliens for use as a landing pad. Additionally, this part of Chile was known for a saucer flap that took place between 95 and 96, with hundreds of reported sightings.

Hell, it has to be better than visiting Roswell, right?

Large Hadron Collider is O.G.

The LHC, bringin' it old school style!
