    An international archeological expedition to Lake Issyk Kul, high in the Kyrgyz mountains, proves the existence of an advanced civilization 25 centuries ago, equal in development to the Hellenic civilizations of the northern coast of the Pontus Euxinus (Black Sea) and the Mediterranean coast of Egypt.

    The expedition resulted in sensational finds, including the discovery of major settlements, presently buried underwater. The data and artefacts obtained, which are currently under study, apply the finishing touches to the many years of exploration in the lake, made by seven previous expeditions. The addition of a previously unknown culture to the treasury of history extends the idea of the patterns and regularities of human development.

    Another cryptic subject line that looked more interesting than it is.

    2500yr old remains found
    The world's oldest man, a 2500 year old Tibetan by the name of Wt (names were shorter back then) was overtaken by a snowstorm on a skiing trip 7 years ago and was lost for six weeks. A massive manhunt ensued. He was found in the spring thaw, having survived the winter on a diet of yeti scat and ski wax.

    Apparently, he has a penchant for this kind of thing, as it has happend three times before. Tibetan officials have long been concerned that their nation's only celebrity would become a liability, and finally took action. Six years ago, he was assigned a security detail to ensure this kind of mishap does not happen again.

    To this day, the 2500yr old remains found.

    Dave - you get an "A" for the joke. But I don't see how it advances discussion - unless your point was that the thread title was poor. Or you are bored silly.

    The latter.

    Apologies to Woolie. It's actually a cool story.
