Search For Atlantis: Ep. III -Can We Get Started Already?
By, Grey Exploration (continued from ep.
The quest to find Atlantis has take a turn for the mediocre recently
with what many in the team are considering a concerted effort to destroy
the expedition. That would be really funny because aside from sitting
around, drinking cola and arguing the expedition hasnít really done anything
of worth or note.
I mean really, the most exploring weíve done so far is finding the best
pizza place in Seattle.
Okay, maybe Iím being a bit unfair. There has been a lot of data collected,
and we do need to sort out likely locations before we go anywhere, itís
just smart. Comparing continental coastlines is dull work, and comparing
the coastlines of various islands is not much more interesting.
However I should mention just what happened to make everyone think weíre
under attack by mysterious, conspiratorial forces that want nothing more
than to prevent Atlantis oriented secrets from getting out.
A building collapsed while we were in it.
Itís not as bad as it sounds, we were in Italy to go over some historical
records that couldnít leave the country and there was a Star Trek convention
Well, since weíre probably the biggest concentration of nerds this side
of Silicon Valley itís hardly surprising that everyone attended. It was
fun, if difficult to understand for those of us not fluent in either Italian
or Klingon, however Star Trek conventions are almost universal things.
Including gimmicky stupidity.
For some reason that I still havenít learned the ceiling was made out
So now you know why Iím less than sympathetic to the idea that someone
was trying to assassinate us.
Nevertheless the seven core members of the team, myself unfortunately
included, have opted for codenames in an effort to protect them, ourselves.
I donít know how this happened, and itís really frightening when you consider
that some people are sure we started out with eight members, and others
six. That sort of argument just cranks the paranoia wheel.
So now, as we begin going over sonar readings for the Mediterranean, weíre
known s Fox, Hawk, Batman, Kirk, The Captain, Warbucks and Mister Negativity.
That last one is mine because I said that this whole codename idea was
just ridiculous. And it is.
Every day Iím here I wonder just what Iím doing. However there is hope
that something, anything will happen soon, because the petty squabbling
has moved to the ďput your money where your mouth isĒ stage and excuses
of assassination attempts are beginning to lose effect.
So please, stay tuned to this glorified ďSurvivorĒ episode consisting
of nothing but nerds, because Iím sure that someone is going to be fed
to sharks very very soon.
