Sand Tsunami in Ica, Peru

How would you like to have this next to your house?

Erich von Däniken Is Right!

Convicted criminal, proven liar and con-man Erich von Däniken is right! I know for a fact that aliens did visit the earth in the distant past because I have seen the landing site with my own eyes. And now, due to the miracle of modern technology known as the digital camera, you can see the same thing I did. As seen in the following photo that I took a few days ago, there is a clear landing strip in Nazca, Peru that only can be seen from outer space (or a small Cessna from an altitude of a little more than 1,000 meters). There is even the figure of a large bird pointing at the landing site so even the most imcompetent of aliens could find it. See for yourself:

Apparently the local inhabitants actually saw the aliens that came down in the spacecraft. It seems that they looked a bit like earthly spiders as shown below:

Like everyone else in the world (who is not trying to make money off of wild theories), I really have no clue who made the Nazca Lines. But they are huge!

Comida y Cerveza Peruana

Only two more days to go and then this is how I will spend my Christmas vacation:

Drinking and eating and drinking!

And since it is summer in Peru, I will have to do even more drinking!

Victor Davis Hanson Nails It Again

In a recent column about Iraq titled A Moral War, Victor Davis Hanson lays into journalists. I think he is being polite:
How strange that journalists pontificate post facto about all the mistakes that they think have been made, nevertheless conceding that here we are on the verge of a third and final successful election. No mention, of course, is ever made about the current sorry state of journalistic ethics and incompetence (cf. Jayson Blair, Judy Miller, Michael Isikoff, Bob Woodward, Eason Jordan). A group of professionals, after all, who cannot even be professional in their own sphere, surely have no credibility in lecturing the U.S. military about what they think went wrong in Iraq.
