Modern Myths

11:15 AM -- Yesterday's Guardian ran another of its ever popular lists -- The myths that won't die... The "top 10 modern fairytales":
    1. The Abominable Snowman
    2. Nessie
    3. Hollow Earth
    4. Crystals
    5. Elvis
    6. Electronic smog
    7. Telepathy
    8. Fairies
    9. Big cats in Britain
    10. Angels
A very British list, of course ("pumas in Penge?"). Our beloved Bigfoot gets no mention, nor Intelligent Design (or is that an ancient myth?), and the author feels UFOs are a dead letter in the U.K.

It's good to know, though, that Elvis has graced the Sceptered Isle. Long live the King!

re: Modern Myths Just look around San Francisco... not that there's anything wrong with that.
