Xanadu, or more accurately Shàngdū (Chinese: 上都; pinyin: Shàngdū), was the summer capital of Kublai Khan's Yuan Dynasty in China, before he decided to move the capital of the Yuan Dynasty to Dadu, present-day Beijing. The city was located in what is now called Inner Mongolia, 275 kilometres (171 mi) north of Beijing, about 28 kilometres (17 mi) northwest of the modern town of Duolun.
Xanadu is a 1980 American musical/romance film directed by Robert Greenwald. The title of the film is a reference to the poem "Kubla Khan, or, A Vision in a Dream: A Fragment" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, which is quoted in the film. Xanadu is the name of the Chinese province where Khan establishes his pleasure garden in the poem.
AKA Yists, Serpent People
Anti-Xists. Gigantic, super-evolved machines who travel the universe causing death and destruction, just for fun. Offspring of NHGH and Narnini. Currently headed towards Earth! According to the Vatican Codex the Yacatisma, in the guise of Serpent People, "tempted and ****ed" all the female Yetis in "Eden", thereby ruining the "Test Batch" and possibly creating humans by mistake, although this story is at variance with more recent accounts of Yeti history.
My SO and I drove to Orlando Saturday for a day-trip. Visited several Disney Attractions. In TOMORROWLAND, there is a 360-degree-surround-screen movie about "transportation" -- it features a TIME-TRAVELING camera named "Nine-Eye" -- there's this robot at the front who introduces "Nine-Eye" -- he repeats the name frequently -- it SOUNDS LIKE "NHGH" almost. There's a diagram of the "Nine-Eye" camera on dispaly where you enter -- a THERMAL TRANSBOBBULATOR is one of the key components! "Nine-Eye" is POWERED by YACATISMA! It's all RIGHT THERE on the diagram.
The Church of the SubGenius is a religion described by some of its own members as an "insane bogus UFO mind-control cult". SubGenius doctrine combines all the worst elements of self-help groups, UFO Cults, Scientology, and Apocalyptic Christianity with utterly shameless money-grubbing antics.
The central doctrine of the Church is that certain portions of humanity are actually superior mutants known as Yetinsyn, the result of crossbreeding between humans and the superior Yeti, or "Atlanteans".
The ultimate goal of all SubGeniuses is to survive until X-Day, when the godlike aliens known as the Men From Planet X will arrive and Rupture all the dues-paying SubGenii to a never-ending tour of the universe, while converting Planet Earth into the intergalactic equivalent of a greasy-spoon truck-stop.
An early and significantly notable appearance was in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) as the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. Since then a version of that warehouse has been the primary focus of a number of independent fictional works:
The Librarian (2004–2008): A film series starring Noah Wyle where the Metropolitan Public Library is a cover for the group that runs the warehouse.
Warehouse 13 (2009–): A Syfy television series where the warehouse is run by a secret division of the United States Secret Service.
Hangar 18 at Area 51 - the former biggest and still most famous building at the base.
Hangar 18 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base which allegedly houses evidence from the Roswell UFO incident. Often confused with the Area 51 hangar.

Greek goddess of strife and discord, her name being translated into Latin as Discordia. Her Greek opposite is Harmonia, whose Latin counterpart is Concordia.
It is a trans-Neptunian object (TNO) native to a region of space beyond the Kuiper belt known as the scattered disc and has one known moon, Dysnomia. As of 2011, its distance from the Sun is 96.6 AU, roughly three times that of Pluto.
Discordianism is the modern religion worshipping Eris (also known as Discordia), the Greco-Roman Goddess of Chaos. It was founded circa 1958–1959 by Malaclypse the Younger with the publication of its principal text, the Principia Discordia.
It was originally published under the title "Principia Discordia or How The West Was Lost"
The Principia describes the Discordian Society and its Goddess Eris, as well as the basics of the POEE denomination of Discordianism. It features typewritten and handwritten text intermixed with clip art, stamps, and seals appropriated from other sources, possibly in violation of copyright laws. While the Principia is full of literal contradictions and unusual humor, it contains several passages which propose that there is serious intent behind the work, for example a message scrawled on page 00075: "If you think the PRINCIPIA is just a ha-ha, then go read it again."
