My grandson is an alien. Proof!

You may have seen this image, if you’re at all familiar with von Daniken/Chariots of the Gods kinds of fringe pseudoscience.

Clearly, this is proof that ancient aliens visited the Earth.

I have discovered shocking evidence that they are still visiting!

I expect regular visits once he masters that starship control panel.

    The mildly deranged penguin says that seems to be time displacement controls — you can tell because of all the round things, just like in a TARDIS — and appears to be set for about sixty years ago. She has no idea of the spacial coordinates, but suggests the miniaturized alien is planning to see what happens if one does visit their grandparents and… well, if this blog suddenly goes Spppfffffzzzzzzzt! and no-one remembers it, we’ll have a clew.

    I always thought the K’inich Janaab Pakal I tomb carving meant that ancient astronauts had flatulence.

    Re. hostile aliens, I read the Toxoplasma Gondii parasite seems linked with risky business decisions. Among other things.
    When your cat teams up with Knut, there will be no stopping their spree of destruction.

    The problem is encouraging Knut to keep practicing. In a few years he could be playing two video games at once: One with his hands and one with his feet.

    Clearly, he is part of a group of “Midwich cuckoos” (check it up, it’s by John Wyndham).
    One of the last roles of the Superman actor was in the film version.

    From a friend’s Twitter post:
    “American retiree who served in Korea asked my wife, “Are you a Korean war bride?”. My wife does not appear to be 65+ years old, so unless he’s using it in the “Korea is technically at war, did you marry a soldier?” sense, this does not apply to all Koreans you meet.”

    Anyway, I hope your son, his warbride and whole family are doing well.

    Interestingly enough, the image of Hanab Pakal on the sarcophagus lid was discussed in Linda Schele’s book Code of Kings (p.132). The resemblance between the position of the figure and modern Mayan birth themes in art was noted by the authors who hypothesized a Mayan connection between birth and rebirth at death when a person enters the Underworld.
