Ancient Aluminium

In the news today was a story about a chunk of metal found in Romania in 1973.

To some, if the metal was 43 years old it would be ancient!  In fact, the metal is much older.

The chunk of metal was found below a riverbed in the town of Aiud along with two large rocks that turned out to be fossils from a large extinct mammal that died 10,000-80,000 years ago.  The metal was also unidentified until it was determined to be an alloy containing 90% aluminium and appeared to have been manufactured given that it has concavities and would, therefore, be part of a larger instrument or mechanism.

Nothing too suspect yet.  Man first started making stuff out of aluminium 200 years ago apparently.  Only the chunk of metal was dated as being a little older than that – a mere 250,000 years old.

Of course, the only reasonable explanation is that the chunk of metal is evidence that aliens visited Earth.  Gheorghe Cohal, the Deputy Director of the Romanian Ufologists Association, told local media: “Lab tests concluded it is an old UFO fragment given that the substances it comprises cannot be combined with technology available on Earth.”

I’m not sure the Swiss lab did say it was from a UFO.  I suspect more news outlets than the Birmingham Mail and those Bastions Of Fine Journalism The Daily Mail and The S*n would be reporting the wreckage of alien craft if they did.

Another thought from local historian Mihai Wittenberger is that the object is actually a metal piece from a World War II German aircraft.  He believes that it is a piece of the landing gear from a Messerschnmitt ME 262.  However, this does not explain the age of the artefact, claim the investigators.

I had another theory (from the facts presented) that maybe, just maybe, it’s really old piece of metal that someone stumbled across and over the years it might have just been used for a few things.

I guess that’s not so much of a good story though.

I pronounce it aluminium
’cause there’s an I next to the U and M
Now write it down slowly
And read it out fast

She’s got eyes
Propostrious eyes
I’ve never had a lover who’s my sister or my brother before

I’ve been counting on the wrong things
To make life feel alright
You can be
My icy queen
’till the end of time
You can have it all
You’re stuck in the middle
Reason one and all
I was born on a horse thats all

I like to think im just a thorough bread
Open name with no horses flesh
We’re galloping slowly
Through this broken glass
Shes got hoofs
Proposterious hoofs
Ive never had a lover who’s my sister or my brother before

I’ve been counting on the wrong things
To make life feel alright
You can be my icy queen till the end of time
You can have it all
You’re stuck in the middle
Reason one and all
I was born on a horse thats all

You can have it all
You’re stuck in the middle
Reason one and all
I was born on a horse thats all
