They always forget to subtract the one kadam.

They didn't know who they were, or... what they were doing...

It was a test pit.

"You're digging in the wrong place!"

"They say we are digging in the wrong place?"

"They're drunk. How do they know where we are digging?"

I find it amusing that you posted this in a thread about people digging in the wrong spot.

There's a Raiders of the Lost Ark joke here, but I just can't seem to find it.

Isn't it illegal to dig in young brains?

I am in 100% agreement with your comment about the skim milk thread that's 3 stories down from thIs one.

Rev. Skarekroe: They didn't know who they were, or... what they were doing...


Well, at least they weren't in danger of being crushed by dwarves.

A mile away from Carn Meini, or a mile away from Stonehenge? Moving the stones a mile is still different than moving them about 150 miles.

Came to ask the same question. The writing in the article was terrible.

Bah, need to watch the movie again.

From the slideshow accompanying the article - is this what they mean by "British hot"?

Why ? Because they didn't find the Pandorica yet ?

A little Googling turns up that it's the former; it's in the Preseli hills, they just had the wrong one.  So, still 150 miles.

I find it amusing that you posted this in a thread about people digging in the wrong spot.


I find farking with multiple tabs to be...difficult sometimes.

I should just stick to one tab, and fark the heck out of it.

Well, there were some exceptionally large dwarfs.

Did they finally find where the daemons dwell? Where the banshees live, and they do live well?
 
2013-11-21 01:01:25 PM
Anyone have a link to an article that's more..well, science-y? I did some googling myself, and can't really find anything short of this Bevins guy going "I said so."

The link for "our findings have been verified" takes you to a category search on the Mirror, where the first link goes back to the article, and most of the rest have nothing to do with Stonehenge.

Well that explains why all the Gelflings were wiped out.

Just as well, you know the chamber will be full of snakes.

Oddly enough, I thought he was making a joke in that he was "digging in the wrong place" for the joke.

I knew I'd be too late as soon as I saw more than five one comment, but Jonathan Rhys-Davies is so hilariously happy and amusing in that movie, I just had to post the picture anyway.

Me too, but I think it was +8 Culture in IV.  Would you care to make a joint Declaration of Friendship?
