Britons welcome our dinosaur overlords

with 2 comments

Kevin Drum via Crooked Timber:

According to a poll done to publicize the new X-Files movie, the #1 conspiracy theory (in Britain, anyway) is the belief that Area 51 exists to investigate aliens … But down at #10, we get this: “The world is run by dinosaur-like reptiles.” What the hell kind of conspiracy theory is that?

That’s kind of … fantastic.

  1. Like that movie, what was it, The Faculty? Where the teachers at this school were all aliens? Or a couple different episodes of Doctor Who that I can remember.

    Britons can be a little ridiculous sometimes, but you have to love them anyway.

  2. I have a feeling this could have something to do with Doctor Who.
