Aliens? Really?

Okay, I have a serious crush...on Giorgio Tsoukalos.

Never heard of him? Obviously you've never seen Ancient Aliens on the History Channel. He's the co-founder of Legendary Times magazine and promotes the theory that aliens visited Earth in ancient times and helped build the pyramids, among other things.

The proof, according to Giorgio and the other experts on the show, can be found in ancient Egyptian temples, Mayan tombs, Indian literature and medieval manuscripts.

I love this series for how it pushes the limits of traditional archeology. The skeptics can argue all they want about how the theories posited by people like Tsoukalos and David Hatcher Childress and Graham Hancock are totally off the wall. But...traditional archeologists still can't agree on how the ancient Egyptians built the pyramid so who's to say the Egyptians didn't have help? They certainly can't disprove it.

I'll be glued to the History Channel tonight from 10 to 11 to watch "Ancient Aliens" as it premieres its second season, because not only do I love the show, but have you seen that picture up there?

Oh, I think he's cute too. I was watching it tonight. Interesting. They had Erich von Daniken on the show and talked about his book Chariots of the Gods. Very interesting.

I agree. Here's a little story about him called "Pecs Appeal" from Ithaca College:

O.k. I'm in too.... Crushin' big here on the superlatively intelligent, -highly impassioned about his work,-Gorgeous Giorgio. And that photo you found of him with the biceps showing; that just sealed the deal for me...Wow, a genius AND a cutie...That's paranormal. Could he be an Alien Hybrid -like Hercules!? ;)

Eh..he's nothing special. Just an oddball with bad a spray-on tan.

Seems as if "attractive" and "genius" are terms that are far
too frequently abused.

There is something so awful that he is charmingly adorable. I have a wee crush also. He definitely makes watching ancient aliens more interesting!

Hey Jason, thanks for the link. Very interesting.

Arika, he's adorable and that accent is just too much. Yes, he definitely makes the show a must see.

I always thought Giorgio was a bit eccentric and cooky, but after watching every Ancient Aliens episode I've fallen for the guy! He is hyper-intelligent, and states some rather sound theories. I don't care much for the spray on tan or crazy hair but that just adds to his quirkiness. It's adorable..and rather sexy. Love ya, Gio!
