Best wishes to Robert Bauval on his 60th birthday. Greg interviewed Rob about his most recent book The Egypt Code (Amazon US or UK) in Sub Rosa issue 6.

Quote of the Day:

“There is no intimacy; [computer games are] not live. It’s being translated through a computer, and your imagination is not there the same way it is when you’re actually together with a group of people. It reminds me of one time where I saw some children talking about whether they liked radio or television, and I asked one little boy why he preferred radio, and he said, ‘Because the pictures are so much better.’”

Gary Gygax on ye olde roleplaying games.

  1. Moses on Dope
    The funny thing is that Benny Shanon, the alleged “researcher”, admits to being on drugs himself when the theory came to him. So at least we have proof that someone involved in this story is a stoner. Dude!

    Shanon writes that he has “partaken of the … brew about 160 times in various locales and contexts.”

    My apologies go out to all who were just offended by this hostile, confrontational and completely unreasonable post.

  2. Tax on Air
    With big government’s love of taxes, don’t discount it. On the one hand they tax the crap out of certain things to discourage their use, but on the other they become dependant on the revenues those taxes provide. Tobacco is a great example. I don’t put it past politicians, especially those on the left who are always looking to expand government and control the populace, to tax “air”. In fact, the whole GW charade essentailly does just that:

  3. UFO over Mezcala.
    Well, the video is sure of not much use, what’s more interesting is the accounts of witnesses describing the object as “big as the Moon”, with its glow illuminating the contour of the mount where it —apparently— landed. They also tell that when the object appeared, a very strong draft of cold wind was felt, which is strange because the climate in that area is semi-tropical and VERY warm.

    And also of note was the ridiculous “official” explanation that the light was the result of an electrical short circuit; which is dismissed as impossible by the witnesses, because there are NO electrical equipment installed over that mount. Also, I personally believe a short circuit would have provoked a light of a more warm (yellower) hue, whereas the video shows a very white glow; so other explanation must be found.

    It’s not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me…
    It’s all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!
