FTFA: The tales are incredible and written in the era when journalism meant whatever sold papers, truth be damned.

So, not any different from today?

Today's journalism is so yellow it resembles the water at the local YMCA pool.

Coal miners, sinking a shaft 360 feet deep, broke into a cavern revealing "a wonderful buried city," the article claimed. Lava arches stretched across the roof of the cavern, looming over the streets of an ancient city "which are regularly laid out and enclosed by walls of stone, which is cut and dressed in a fairly good, although rude style of masonry

Uh-huh.

Why can't we just mine it from the Christmas Stockings of politicians? It's an endless supply.

How bad was it to live in those times that they imagined so many "buried" cities? Was it so bad they wanted to hide from up top?

It's a government conspiracy to suppress secret ancient knowledge!

Actually, the folklore of the US is pretty rich. It was only relatively recently that the supernatural (or, I guess, non-rational) became verboten in US news.

So, Weekly World News was just upholding classic journalism?

What a strange story. Were the authors serious? So I started looking around the web-site. Definitely a lot of fringe stuff. Maybe they weren't totally wacko I thought. But there was a pigeon hole being formed. Then I saw this headline:

 "7 Signs Your Exorcist Sucks at His Job"

Yep, a few fries short of a happy meal over there.

Interesting read. At the time, anyway. Not sure how it holds up now.

Did giants once live in giant buried cities across America?


No.


There, I just saved you ten minutes of worthless reading. Also, Mr. Rogers was never a Navy Seal and the Life cereal kid is still alive.

Well, now I'm curious.

My wife and I listened to their podcast a few years ago during an all night drive. They were at season one, maybe two at that time, and they had some pretty good creepy stories. Good enough to keep us awake on the deserted interstate, anyway. I tried listening to it again last year and I guess they just sort of fully embraced the Weekly World News type stuff since then, with frequent statements about how this next story is obviously bullshiat but they just had to share it anyway because it's so damned crazy.

Up until a couple of years ago, it wasn't; I'm not sure if it's legal now in all fifty but at least most of them, IIRC.

It was legal until what, 100ish years ago, or maybe during Prohibition? Then it was banned for 'causing madness'. I'd have to do some research for particulars. It's an interesting subject.

well, just remember, Gulliver's Travels was originally published as a travel guide... (and, purportedly, some people didn't realize it wasn't a legit travel guide)
 
2013-11-25 06:54:28 PM
Now that I think of it, I sort of remember reading about the big mounds in the midwest being the graves of giants. You can google midwest mounds to find out more about them.

The US didn't always use to be like this. As they say in american gods (and some other book I don't remember), at some point America got all secular about its holy sites.
