- The Pyramids. I mean look at them. They're huge. Definitely not made by people. My friend Pete who lives up the road couldn't build something like that, and he has one of those engine block cranes and everything. Such mystery. Also, accurately used the measurement of π like 2,500 years before anyone calculated it. So they had time machines, too.

- The Mayan Calander. Only lost like a day or two in the span of 6,000 years, and predicted the end of the world to within 4 years of Trump taking office. Pretty good accuracy if you ask me, especially for a bunch of savages who didn't know what wheels are.

- Baalbek. Look up the Trilithon blocks, srsly, your mind will get blown. Who could do this? Nobody, that's who. But somebody did do it anyway. Ask anybody, they'll tell you it was giants. Or the Romans, but who are you going to believe. The Romans couldn't even build a wall big enough to keep out the Goths.

- Macchu Picchu. Just look at those gigantic blocks, fit together tighter than a Republican butthole. Also, way up on top of a mountain, where nobody noticed it until the 1930s, except for all the locals, who say it was built by gods. I mean, I don't know what your standards for evidence are, but to me this is obviously the work of some superhuman technology.

- Stonehenge. This is famous of course, but English people building something like that? No sir. Have you met English people? Nice try, "Science".

I'd like to nominate this for an entry in the new testament, whatever that ends up being.

Did you intend for this to stay at 5? I have a couple ideas percolating.

For example

-The Yonaguni Monument. This is actually a new-wave ultra fresh sushi and sashimi restaurant that emphasizes freshness to the point that the fish haven't even been removed from the water yet. The structure is in fact modern with an ancient rock facade but entirely filled with sea water. The entrance is a VERY closely held Yakuza secret and both customers and staff must either wear SCUBA gear, have hereditary or bio-constructed gills or have the mastered the ancient secret arts of underwater breathing.

i know this is quite a bit more silly than the OP, but I had the idea because of it and figured I'd share. A more serious example might be.

- Tunguska. On June 30 1908 an immense aerial blast leveled approximately 770 square miles of forest in a remote part of already remote Siberia, Russia. It's estimated that the blast was as powerful as 10-15 MEGATONS of TNT. By way of comparison the "Fatman" plutonium bomb dropped nearly 40 years later at the close of WWII was a wimpy 21 Kilotons. Many theories abound about an asteroid exploding in the atmosphere, but no impact craters or meteorite fragments have been so far discovered despite several costly investigations under horrible conditions. The local ancient tribal peoples say that one of their gods woke up and flew into the sky to stop a meteor from making impact, but of course "Science" sees no need to investigate that shit when just talking to them requires something like a 100 miles of walking through the hellish Siberian wilderness after you get off the last train station stop.


Personally I blame TGRR's "cooking" and his transtemporal garbage disposal device under his kitchen sink.. er... I've said too mut

I only made a list of 5 because that's what I came up with at the moment. If you want to add to I. That's fine with me. The only guideline I'd prefer is making sure whatever you add to the list is actually a real thing you're making fun of, not entirely fictional. But rules are made to be broken, anyway.

Ok. Both of those are real things I'm making fun of. Tunguska I make fun of factually, but it's more like an event AT a real pkace Yonaguni I make a total fiction of because there's no confirmation that it's actually a sunken monument, but it LOOKS artificially constructed. Feel free to edit or drop whatever I may post. I'm just trying to participate for the funsies. :)
