because the network wants me to attract more 18 to 34-year-olds with disposable income and nuclear weapons. so glorious leader, here is give up your dreams of developing an h-bomb -- the hydrogen bomb gets its destruction force not from fission but the fusion of atoms and helium, so when you drop this, this will be helium in then this birthday balloon which i have because it's your birthday and even if you successfully b, all that helium would make it impossible for your glorious birthday speech to be taken serials because you would sound like this -- hail me your
12:09 am
victorious, eternally glorious to the people's revolution.the atom we have flown like a winged tiger and burned the american bandits with the heat of a million suns. h-bomb! foiled again!

12:13 am
differences in vegetation health, which you are not able to see visibly, we're able to map >> stephen: is this like chemical checkcal spectrum that we can't see.ng for chlorophyll which indicate vegetationre less healthy and we pick up the differences and the outline is clear. >> stephen: this is one of the most extraordinary things you've found. this is in egypt, i think. so this is just a bit of desert. this is just a field of sand, right? >> yep. >> stephen: but, in fact, what did you use to find this?the same locale,
12:14 am
(applause) pretty good right now, aren't you? >> so what we're seeing here is the ancient site of tanis, north. >> stephen: from indiana, from raiders of the lost ark. this is where they find the thing that wasor a thousand years wiped off the face of the earth by a vengeful god, you found tanis! is? this is the tanis right there? >> what you're looking at is the outline of a no one has seen and you can clearly see the outlines of buildings and city streets. dig it yet? >> no one's yet. >> stephen: when you see something like the amphitheater,

12:17 am
and that has not changedbeen human.
