The Search for Atlantis V: We’ve
Actually Done Something!
By, Grey Exploration (continued from ep.
Believe it or not for once we actually have something to report that
involves Atlantis and not some geek related squabbling, bickering or nonsense.
We seriously have evidence of Atlantis.
Now, brace yourself because this does start with some insipid geekery.
We were in Miami chasing down three cast members of Babylon 5 and rumors
related to Serenity . . . Yeah, I’ve been with these guys too long when
I know exactly what it is they’re trying to do.
Anyway, we were doing some celebrity hunting, because everything about
Atlantis is science fiction related, when we came across this silly little
shop selling antiques. It was very much like a scene from some stupid
movie, which is why we did it, going inside was so corny it appealed to
No I’m not using the code names, I’m calling them by my code names, they’ve
changed their own names often enough that I’m just tired.
So anyway we go in. Trekkie was keeping an eye out for the slightest bit
of memorabilia, spending most of the time staring at a giant ball of lint
that was either a used Tribble or one of Shatner’s hairpieces.
Solo actively looks for anything George Lucas or Mark Hamill might have
touched, all while eyeing up some statues creepily.
Goth Wannabe is the one who actually sees it. Amazingly she knows what
she’s talking about when pointing out an ancient hunk of stone that shows
both African and South American elements.
It could have been a knock off but Trekkie shows his stuff by pointing
to indicators of age. We’d need to test it of course.
Moneybucks buys us this thing and all of a sudden we’re on the trail of
Now objects with elements from both major southern continents are frequently
considered indicators of Atlantis, presumably located somewhere in the
Atlantic ocean, the theory being that refugees spread in both directions
and ultimately bought their own styles with them, hence things like pyramids
in both locations.
Now Trekkie has been a proponent of this theory from the beginning, however
until now there has never been any motivation to actually do anything.
We’re actually coming up with a plan for searching the three most likely
Atlantic locations for a sunken island with some sort of satellite.
We need more evidence of course and D&D comes up with the idea of
searching certain areas of Mexico, partly because it’s a logical starting
point and partly because the terrain is more hospitable.
Moneybucks still wants to consult a psychic, and we probably will at this
rate, but I’m actually seeing these people do real scientific work.
After cornering several actors that is. That sort of thing just had to
Nonetheless we’re making progress, it’s amazing. For once I don’t utterly
loathe these nerds for wasting my time, I still don’t like them, only
now I feel as if there might be some sort of story here!!
Someone warn me if I start sounding like Grey Space did in the end, please.
