This must be fake.

Have I been asleep?

I found this page while looking for Sedna/X/Tyche/Nemesis...trying to solve the mystery in our solar system.





Is skunk works a safe place to post this?

Site in question

Apparently, this went down last month.

I must admit that I enjoy sleeping ALOT.

The news is always better when it is viewed on the insides of my eyelids.

Exactly what mystery would that be?

Why do you think it is a satire site? You didn't say why in the OP, and the videos would mean I'd have to see them from your perspective, which I cannot without your opinion.

A whois of the site shows whoever owns it is a paranoid person, no details I can see and it's locked. However they do appear to be Australian, or are using an Australian registrar. PrivacyProtect seems Australian.

No content on the site appears to be out of order, like TheOnion for instance.

???!

It seems to be a legit site.

The owner is Raghav Bahl

Maybe the site posted the news due to a translation error.

There have been many cases of the news media jumping on twits posted without verifying the authenticity.

Maybe this is one that managed to slip through the cracks.

How did you find it was Raghav? I didn't look a lot into it, but the domain registry was not open to the public.

ahh either way, doesn't appear a shonky site!

no need to doubt ATS's inclusivity

if ish happens, it WILL be on ATS,

but usually in perspective, ie not the ammo dump being the coverpage of Raghav's site

Thought you were talking about ATS itself.

It does feel like ATS has taken on a ton of satire over the past few months.

It's the invasion of the GLP trolls.

If you look at the bottom of the web pages....there is a reference to WEB18.

This in turn led to Network18 and a bunch of companies that fall under its umbrella.

Follow it to the top and Mr Raghav owns 51% and controls it himself.

That was my first thought as well, when I read the title.
My second thought, was that it's reflective of the world these days, which seems to be turning into one big satire.....
