DATELINE: Nanny Midol or Nan Midal?
You never know when there will be a new season of Ancient Aliens.It looks like the swallows have returned to Capistrano, and Season 15 begins with a visit to Nanny Midol.
No, this little islet built on corral reefs won’t cramp your style.
Leave it the show to find the eighth wonder of the world that no one ever heard of. The Venice of the Pacific was first spotted by American pilots in World War II. It is a series of enormous basalt walls built on coral in the middle of the ocean, far from anything, like even a primitive civilization. Its name is Nan Madol, and our intrepid explorers are Giorgio and David Childress (looking like a crisp tortilla from the sun).
They dismiss regular scientists again and insist that the area was built with tons of stone before the Great Pyramid. And, they have a point. It hardly looks like people on bamboo rafts could carry 15-ton rocks, but no one knows when it was built, some think 1000 years ago.
Micronesian officials think it was people from outer space. That’s one way to inspire Giorgio to make the trip. It is an amazing place, for sure, and the US government has done recent LiDar surveys. Gone are the days of digging up vegetation to get to the bottom. However, they learn there is a second city a hundred feet below this, which had to be built 12,000 years ago before the last ice age.
We love it when they claim these electro-magnetic lava rocks are man-made by aliens.
What is most surprising is that Trump didn’t cut the Lidar budget. Maybe next year. One scientist, Dr. Henry Burton, sheepishly listens to extra-terrestrial theories to what he cannot explain.
We don’t know how soon the luxury hotels will go up nearby, but it won’t take long now that Ancient Aliens has put it on the map. It is doubtful because locals will not stay overnight in the area: too many ghostly demons.
There is still no explanation why History Channel has moved this show to the Twilight Zone timeslot on its weekly schedule.
