I always figured that the Norwegians would get there first





MacReady:
I dunno, it's like this: thousands of years ago this spaceship crashes, and this thing, whatever it is... gets thrown out or crawls out and it ends up freezing in the ice.
Garry:
So, the Norwegians find it, and they dig it out of the ice...
MacReady:
That's right, Garry. They dig it up. They cart it back to their base. It gets thawed out, it wakes up, probaly not the best of moods, and... I don't know, I wasn't there!
Childs:
How could this motherfutter wake up after thousands of years frozen in the ice?
George Bennings:
And how can it make itself look like a dog?
MacReady:
I don't know. Because it's different then us. Because it's from outer space. What more do you want from me? Ask Blair!


 

I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death.

Recent occurrences of madness in Arkham MA and the discovery of horribly mutilated library books at the library of Miskatonic University have followed the news of the Russians tapping an enormous lake under the Antarctic ice cap.
Those aware of the Cthulu Mythos or the recent movie The Call of Cthulu should check out the news of the Russians tapping a "Gigantic freshwater lake hidden under miles of ice for millions of years"(AP)http://universe.byu.edu/index.php/2012/02/09/ap-in-scientific-coup-russians-reac...
Looking at the Wikipedia article on H.P. Lovecraft you will find that, "Eventually, as Antarctica became uninhabitable even for the Elder Things, they migrated into a large, subterranean ocean."
Be afraid

I just interviewed Garen for a piece about the Marathon scheduled for this week's Somerville Journal (I think it's published on Thursday). He was erudite, or something like that. It'll also be somewhere on this site: http://www.wickedlocal.com/somerville

"He was erudite, or something like that" would make one hell of a gravestone epitaph.

The Truth is Out There!


Eisenhower Met With ETs Says Ex-Government Consultant

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/14/eisenhower-met-aliens-says-timothy-good...

Quote:
Whether you believe this story or not, an interesting related side-story reared its head in 2010. A retired New Hampshire state representative, Henry McElroy Jr., taped an intriguing video announcement in which he revealed seeing a secret briefing document intended for Eisenhower.

This document, according to McElroy, contained information that aliens were in America and that Eisenhower could meet with them


I also know for a fact that Chief NASA Rocket Scientist Werhner von Braun was an alien*. -RF Smiley



*Alien n. An unnaturalized foreign resident of a country. Also called noncitizen.

Bad news:

The Razzies are yet to be announced but critics are busy compiling the year's worst; eager, in Roger Ebert's words, to take one more crack at films that robbed precious hours from their lives:


From Time:
And the Worst Film of the Year Is Officially...

Quote:


Yes, it wouldn't be a proper worst-list without the usual suspects: "Twilight", Michael Bay, Nicole Kidman, Adam Sandler.. Wink.

I think there might be a movie in this...

Goat Accents

Quote:
The scientists believe the goats are displaying the first stage in the evolutionary development of language. The next stage would be imitation, which some birds (hummingbirds, parrots and songbirds), bats, whales and dolphin have exhibited.

The study concludes that animals could one develop complex language like humans:

“This suggests an early step in the evolution of vocal communication, leading to the advanced and unique vocal-learning abilities found in humans, which allow us to speak.”

Alien Invasion Threatens Antarctic Ecosystem

SYDNEY (REUTERS) - In the pristine frozen continent of Antarctica scientists fear an alien invasion -- not from outer space, but carried in people's pockets and bags
