Re: Island Saga ???

I simply am getting tired of this ... bullshit. It does not become truth by writing an fictitious article in a local newspaper, repeat on internet or Wiki.

Yes, I know the origin of this story, once researched by several researchers but then dismissed (no evidence found, circumstantial as some would say)

http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showth...ght=Gudbrandur

With full respect, I suggest thread be locked.

The spreading of fake news is not merely the domain of the White House...
