I'm not saying HOAX, but...
 Egypt has it's share of easily duped people who'd eat this up as OMG Egyptians get their technology from aliens.


The Scots figured they can increase tourism with the Lochness monster... and they did... capitalism win!

It's just vibrations from the foot traffic causing that statue to rotate very subtly over a period of time. This is obvious from watching the time-lapse video: it's perfectly still at night, when the museum is closed. Nothing to see here (though the video is definitely amusing).

The question I saw from another site with a video is why it suddenly started happening. It sat the for 80 years without foot traffic causing it to vibrate in a circle. I mean, I know it's not aliens, but that solution poses its own problem. I was wondering about something like a new HVAC install causing the vibrations. Or maybe there's an underground tube station under the building or something, and it just opened or got a ton of new traffic, and nobody's tying it to that, since they probably didn't notice the rotating for awhile.

That's OK. I once photographed an extraordinary episode on a case in Redlands. It was a child's toy, a very small Matchbox vehicle. Rolled seven feet across a linoleum surface. Took seven hours for the vehicle to complete the distance. Of course, this would never register on the naked eye. But I have it recorded on a time-lapse camera. It's fantastic.

Probably did it in the left lane too, the prick.

Alien butt? Is that why they use probes all the time?

On a case? Like a ghost hunting case?

Also a woman who worked at the museum said that even when that room was totally empty it was still moving.  Foot traffic alone can't be the only solution.

But hoax is a more likely solution than aliens obviously.

Personally, I think the statue is just bored off its tits. I'd be spinning circles, too, after 80 years in the same spot.

Aliens could be moving it, sure. Also, The Littles could have been based on real life, but they evolved an invisibility gene that allows them to move the statue. My yorkiepoo could also be moving it using the power of his mind in an attempt to scam a treat. There could also be a civilization of fairies that live underground who fly in circles all day long to make it rotate.

There is no way, NO WAY, anyone could do that with a time lapse camera

A beer did that to me once, because of the moisture under the can.
