Sounds fishy

  1. Jun 1, 2003 #1
    I stumbled over this article (I'm not sure how) and I'm curious as to whether anything at all similar to this is even remotely possible? Doesn't sound right to me but I thought I'd check.

    from the article:
    I never trust vague references like this.

    Also the measurements in the last paragraph
    I mean it is a little too exact (to the nanometer scale). Let's get serious. I'm not saying it is impossible but it's not easy for a tibetan tourist to do this. And I understand the whole story is happening in 1939???? Correct me if I misunderstood something...

    "A little fishy"?!

    The dumpster out back of the local Sushi Palace doesn't smell as fishy as this article!
