I'm pretty sure the predator guys are from Nibiru?

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of New York City, New York scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years.




Unfortunately the claim is unprovable now, because shortly after the story aired, the site was invaded by a gang of homeless drunks who stole all the copper so they could buy Thunderbird and Mad Dog 20/20.

I must get myself to the library. I thought Nibiru was a car made by Daewoo, and "Aspergers in Paradise" was a Jimmy Buffett song.

At any rate, I hope those Nibiruists were as technologically advanced as the Sumerians claim, because one thing they would've had to conquer early on would've been the most energy-efficient home heating system ever created!!!

I've never heard this story; honestly when I saw the title of the thread I thought it was about some new Japanese refractor maker. I DO remember something about a planet called Nemesis(?) which was supposed to come near Earth once in while and wreak havoc.

Nemesis is the name of a now debunked hypothetical red dwarf companion of the Sun.

Yup, but Nemesis is also a Star Trek movie from 2002! Maybe those conspiracy guys got the planets mixed up when they were watching Star Trek and drinking Romulan Ale! (Or Klingon blood wine)Hmmm... Instead of pink elephants, runaway secret planets?

You wouldn't recognize the area now! It's become the second-fastest growing area in the region. The Richmond Astronomical Society's observatory with its nice 7-inch refractor was built out here in what was "out in the country" in the 1960s; now it's in the heart of midtown and virtually useless for anything but solar observing and planetary work. I hope they'll get enough bux to move it someday; it's a wonderful telescope. I remember observing there as a teenager in the late 1970s when it was still surrounded by woods and you had to take a dirt road about 100 yards off the main road to get to it. Now that 100 yards of space is a shopping center, and trucks at the supermarket's loading dock sometimes block entry to the observatory. At least they were nice about coming to an agreement with the club about the kind of lighting they used behind the shopping center. But now there's a major regional shopping mall within a mile, and several dozen car dealerships within that same mile -- along with a major hospital, restaurants, gas stations, you name it. Suburban sprawl! I'm about 10 miles west of that, and I still have to drive about 25 miles farther west to get out of the light pollution. If you remember where Brandermill was when you lived in the area, then you'll be surprised when you learn that the suburbs extend about five miles west of Brandermill now.

Why do people follow the Branch Dividians, Jonestown or Heavans Gate? Theres no shortage of gullibility out there.

This is due to the depletion of the Bozone layer, first documented by Gary Larsen in the '80's. It is composed of clowns, sitcom writers and second-rate standups, and shields (or used to, sometimes) the earth from stupidity rays emanating from space. Maybe from planet Niburu, which means it may ultimately destroy the earth without colliding with it.

Isaac Asimov's book Nemesis was about this hypothetical red dwarf companion...

This whole thing reminds me of a certain 1951 thriller. Here's the trailer. Remember this?

Up until that movie, I was of the theory that bad Star Trek is better than no Star Trek.

Oh yeah, I remember Brandermill, I built about a hundred houses there, I remember a lot of Texans came out there in the '80's when Texas ran out of work and now, I live in Texas! One thing I can say about Texas, just north of Huntsville, (south of Dallas, on I-45) there is almost zero light pollution and the milky way sure is a sight to see! And to stay on topic, even with no light shining in your eyes, there still isn't any sign of Nibiru!

Nibiru is an alloy comprised of Ni, B, Ir and U.

I've been blowing off this thread, but I just had two door to door religion types knock to tell me about the impending Doomsday. Sigh.

Props to the Greg for bringing up Asimov --though that book had a terrible ending!
