I think the chances this thing can fire lightning out of its butt are the same as flying monkeys coming out of mine. But hey, no danger in a wild goose chases in the desert armed with explosives.

On one hand, there's a really high chance that they won't find anything.

Still, a small part of really hopes that the guys walk back to some city with acid and electricity burns and say something like "It's real..." before collapsing. They wake up in the hospital weeks later with no memory of the experience, but when the tape is reviewed there is a strange blur in a frame or two...

Ah well. A man can dream, can't he?

Mongolia in the news

Okay, so Mongolia's marketing department is really churning out the press releases.
Quote of the day, about the new Genghis Khan theme park and monument:
“He was a cruel man but he led our country to greatness,” said Toguldur Munkochir 25, a bank teller unwinding at the Chinggis Khaan bar later that night. “If you look at Lincoln, Hitler and Julius Caesar, it’s kind of the same thing.”

Yes, it's kind of the same thing.

I really want to meet this Mongoloid marketing man. I bet that dude could write one kick-ass scam spam, drabble, or Super Animal Death Match. Remember that name, folks: Toguldur Munkochir!
This will not be the last you have heard from him.
