Second, did you know that Ancient Aliens star Giorgio Tsoukalos sells autographed photos of himself for $45 a pop—$65 if you want yours “personalized.” If that isn’t proof that he’s in it for the cash, I can’t imagine what more you need.
Third, Steve (@GunsnCoasters on Twitter) informs me that making the internet rounds this week is the claim that three “man made ancient pyramids” have been discovered in Antarctica. The story, however, gives scant details and the attached photos are less than impressive.
Here’s a typically gleeful reaction from one alternative believer, giddy at the thought that some of the twelve “world pyramids” have finally been uncovered.
Sadly, however, this is just internet hype, without fact. Assuming this expedition is real (we can’t take anything on faith), even the author of the original “report” makes an important admission:
"The team is currently planning an expedition to physically reach at least one of the pyramids to determine if it is natural or artificial."
That about says it all. The photographs show triangular rocky outcroppings and broken pieces of ice. No pyramids. No Atlantis. Better luck next time.
