The Taliban are easily startled, but they'll soon be back, and in greater numbers.

After they knocked down the door, they cautiously peeked inside. Suddenly a Geraldo Rivera appeared in the doorway grinning. He said nothing and just climbed out of the vault. Then another appeared in the doorway and another and another.

One hundred Geraldos emerged from the temple. This scared one of the Taliban and he grabbed a saber and slashed at Geraldo number one hundred, cutting him neatly in two. From the two halves formed two new Geraldos!

The Taliban were scared. Another fighter took and RPG and shot it at another Geraldo. He was blown to smithereens. And every bit of the Geraldo formed a separate, brand new Geraldo.

They shot at the Geraldos with their AK 47s, they threw grenades at them. Whenever a chunk of Geraldo fell off, up sprang a brand new Geraldo. The Geraldos just stood there, smiling as their numbers doubled and tripled.

The Taliban knew they were doomed and quickly turned their guns on each other. They all died painfully and slowly. The thousands of Geraldos saw that there was no story in this and turned and walked away.

The UNESCO team watched from a distance. They sent in a SWAT team of Archeologists who quickly reassembled the door and sealed the mosque. They then buried the mosque under a mountain of acetate.

The Head of UNESCO turned to his scientist, John McClain. "What about these Geraldos? Even if they don't replicate any more, there are still enough to destroy the world." McClain replied cooly: "Don't you worry, buddy. I got this covered." He then spoke one word in to his walkie talkie and told the Head of UNESCO to watch the Geraldos.

A CH-47 Chinook suddenly appeared over the horizon leaking transmission fluid and shedding parts both of which a healthy shiathook is known to do. Beneath on a sling was a large black box. The Head of UNESCO saw the writing on the box and became relieved. The world would be saved.

The shiathook flew over the Geraldos and the began getting excited and jabbering amongst themselves. The followed the helicopter down the road to the ocean. The shiathook hovered as best it could right off shore and the flight engineer, surprisingly sober for the time of day, released the sling and the huge box fell in to the sea. The Geraldos cried in anguish and ran in to the sea. All were drowned.

The Head of UNESCO shook John McClains hand. "You saved the world. You and Al Capone's vault. John, I want to offer you your UNESCO Police badge back."

"It wasn't the first time I saved this rock," John replied. "But you can keep your badge. I aint interested in protecting antiquities." He then climbed aboard a massive motorcycle and gunned the engine. Shelly O. Gasm suddenly appeared and jumped on the back of the motorcycle. "I'm only interested in proctectin' these titties" John said with a smile.

"Bye daddy" said Shelly to the Head of UNESCO and John gunned the motorcycle and took off down the road.

But down by the ocean, a lone Geraldo emerged from the rocks. He had fallen during the lemming-esque rush to the ocean and knocked himself out. In fact, it looked like he had been hit by a chair. He forgot why he had been rushing to the ocean. He brushed some blood from his face and every speck of blood became another Geraldo. They headed in to the city. Looking for that one big story.

Dirtybird971: theMagni

Dirtybird971: I'd love to know the back story to this Mosque.

Why did it need to be sealed until then?
The last guy in, did he die?
What about the bricklayer who sealed the door?
What did they find?
A shrine to whom?

All they found inside was a book. Weird little thing, leather-bound, had a goat's tongue or something bound to the cover. One guy said it licked him, silly bugger.

You have to pay extra for that in Vegas, lucky guy.

Inside was a 10" plate, about 1/2" thick, sort of a yin-yang / sinusoid symbol, half black, half white, made out of some kind of ceramic. We couldn't get any of our tools to even scrape the surface to get some for the spectrometer. Weird thing is that it was totally clean.

Maybe he found a guyver?

Burn a bible = Fark Cheers
Threaten to burn a koran = Death threats

Christian / Jew killed = Fark nazi cheers.
Islamic terrorist boo-booed = Death threats and "that's rayyyyycist".


Destroy anything from the Judeo-Christian sects = Cheers
Destroy anything from the religion of global terrorism = feigned poutrage.

Wait. I got it.

We take all the rubble from all the destroyed ancient things, and we use them to make on really big ancient-thing-rubble statue/building/whatever.

Then everyone that wants to destroy it will be too busy fighting each other over who gets to blow it up. When the last group is standing, we let them go at it, because let's face it, they really wanted it more.

Then we take the rubble from that ancient-thing pile, and repeat until we run out of terrorists/hate groups/rouge nations/pancake houses/radical religion nuts/etc.

When they're all gone, we use what little bits of these blown-up things to make a nice bed for a walking path, and put some nice trees along it for shade.
