Did they ever find the Nazi gold in Poland? Maybe the aliens took the Union gold and the Nazi gold and stashed it in the secret compartment in the Great Pyramid, then dumped the grain into the Marianas trench.

Well, if they do find it…we know exactly what our illustrious El Presidente will be requesting for the Oval Office makeover…

The fools! Don’t they know it’s hidden underneath Trinity Church! I found clues leading to this site on the back of a Civil War era cereal box!

FBI spokeswoman Carrie Adamowski wouldn’t say what the agency was doing there, only that FBI personnel were “carrying out court-authorized law enforcement activity in Elk County.” She declined further comment to CNN.

Well, that’s a fun new twist in the idea of civil asset forfeiture.

I looked for that. Couldn’t find it. Was buried too far down.
