Why am I wasting my time?
“Why am I wasting my time?”
Especially when everyone knows Atlantis is mythical and this find is proof of Ancient Astronauts.
I mean, duh.
I believe Electrum is a naturally occurring alloy,
or so I have read.

6th century BC?
People tend to have a bias when listening to the news- usually we think they sound like they know what they are talking about... Because they talk on TV every day about any and every topic that comes up, as if they were experts in everything.
But when they discuss something in your field of expertise, you come to realize what morons they are.
I see this all the time myself- when they talk about computer stuff, I laugh when they are usually ALL wrong...
So what makes people think they are any more competent at anything else?
ESPECIALLY when telling us about liberal politics.
Ummmm... also on Guild Wars...

Re the discussion about how long Atlantis and/or Plato existed. To quote Whats her face Hillary, “What difference does it make?” Plato lived a long long time ago.

Shipwreck looks like a futuristic sports car, possibly made of stainless steel
