Well, "researchers" are crawling all over the old landing site in Nazca, so the Chinese are kindly building a new one.

Re: are the Chinese doing?

You know, Sid, I really like bananas... I mean, I know that's not profound or nothin'... Heck! We ALL do... But for me, I think it goes much more beyond that.

They're probably building those newclear weapons Herman Cain was talking about.

And you guys thought he wasn't fit to be President.

Re: are the Chinese doing?

So, is this supposed to be scary or something? Can't see how this makes any sense at all

Spoilerized for size

Spoiler:


A couple of things sorta match up, but there's no real rhyme or reason to it. Seems like a real stretch.

Who cares what the Chinese are doing. Obama has much more important things to worry about on the home front...like Cash for Clunkers and something about medical insurance for everyone.


Oh yeah...and the war on drugs.

Re: are the Chinese doing?

That's an interesting object, and there's a lot more stuff nearby. Mrs Danger found a large abandoned town.

I think Erich von Daniken could tell us what they are.
