Tempting advert

I went to see the film Atlantis and was not surprised to see lots of excited youngsters in the audience.

On the following evening, I saw a McDonald's TV advert, using the Atlantis movie to attract youngsters to eat the restaurant's products. Get your Atlantis toys here, and so on.

'Crushing' McClure

The Sphinx's hidden message

THIS has been keeping me awake at nights so it might as well worry you as well.

I have been reading a book by one Graham Hancock called Fingerprints Of The Gods. The title and the design of the cover are clearly intended to appeal to fans of that genre pioneered by Erik von Daniken in which ancient artifacts and ruins are scrutinised for evidence of visiting spacemen.
