Stonehenge Not Set In Stone
Stonehenge. One of the most visible and enduring enigmas of our time has been solved by archeologists who claim that the structure was moved after being set up originally.
A larger circle called Waun Mawn was recently unearthed in Wales, and archeologists want the pieces of the Stonehenge we know to fit into that other circle like misplaced puzzle pieces of history. One of the stones of Stonehenge fits into a hole at Waun Mawn, which archeologists think is proof that Stonehenge started out over there.
Why Stonehenge and why Waun Mawn at all? Light. The best reason modern humans can give for those circles is that they were built in relation to the Summer Solstice. The center of each of those circles was lit a specific way on Summer Solstice. If you were to stand inside of Stonehenge on Summer Solstice, the light would not look right. This is because some of the stones fell over and are no longer set up with the original care.
So, what does Stonehenge moving even have to do with writing?
Writers are everywhere. Archeologists are writers who find ways to make their stories more believable then others because they pair up their suspicions and ideas with rock solid evidence. At least there are stones in evidence that need writing about.
Take a page from archeology and come up with your own mystery around stones in your neighborhood or stacks of stones just about anywhere.

Steven, Alone & Lonely wrote: Look, the way the world is right now, what will probably happen is the mummies come back from the dead and start to attack people in order to spread the curses of Egypt until Brendan Fraser can save us all, because the man is a Goddamned legend. However, despite all the destruction they'll do and the countless lives lost, three things will happen:
1) a huge chunk of RWNJ Trump supporters will say they don't exist, then when ta number are killed by them, will admit they exist, but claim that Trump has defeated them;
2) a large number Leftist Loony SJW types will demand equality for mummies and go to join them and, even as they're being ripped apart, will blame the Right for their predicament; and
3) the mummies and their curse will fade into the background of white noise that is 2020 until all we come to think of it not as 'the Mummy Apocalypse (Mummocalypse)' but as: "Last week sometimes."
What? Cynical? Me?
