Hi, Kyrila!

>That depends. . . does Behe resemble Adonis?

I was briefly considered for the leading role in the film "The Love God," but the director said that my three-legged pants just didn't match his image of the film's stalwart hero. :)

All my best,

George

Ta for that cold bucket of water there, Geoff - I'll work on not being transported in rapturous contemplation of either KFC (Kentucky Fried Cook) or poetry spouting actors who revive W H Auden (Stop all the clocks...)

Mr Behe tells us that he was considered for the leading role in "The Love God" - what he fails to mention is that he was also offered the lead role in "Lassie Come Home"! - The Love God my ****, is that Pat Behe I can hear screaming with laughter?
You'll be telling us next that Cook was offered the lead in "An American Gigilo"!!

Hallo Jeremy! Yes, that is a rather good debunking of the Mummy myth. It's a good idea to reference websites you cite, however - particularly when you're quoting such a lengthy section! - as this material is copyright. For those wondering, the passage Jeremy quotes is from the legenday Snopes.com site:

And since it is copyright, the post has to be removed from the public board...which I've already taken care of.

Sorry about that, but leaving it up like this could get the Editor and your friendly moderating team sued by the copyright holder.

Was there a mummy on the Titanic ? I read about it on the Metro... I also read in the same article that Yoko has sorted out her burial arrangements & is to be mummified and put into a real egyptian mummy case when the time comes. Anyway is all this true? I have never heard about the mummy on the Titanic ? Article said whoever moved the mummy would die. I will try and post a scan.

Hiya, i was recently reading an article about an Egyptian mummy that was making its way to America aboard the Titanic, it talked about a curse,i looked into it further and found that there was in fact an ancient Egyptian coffin lid aboard, i was just curious whether anyone had any further information on the subject and if in fact this was actually true and not just a myth?

Sorry, but there was no mummy, no curse, and if there was a coffin lid of any kind aboard, it never made it on the manifest. (I've seen it.) You might want to check out This Hotlink for the facts on this tale. The coffin lid that you mentioned was in the British Museum and is still there.

Thanks for clearing that up, i'm new to this hopefully i will learn how to separate the facts from the myths!

I know this is an old thread, but I recently came across a site that suggests that there may be a grain of truth in the mummy story. Looks like a reputable Discovery Channel site. Any opinions?
