Where is Erich Von Daniken when we need him?

The picture is a cross section of a furred-up artery; it was included in some promotional bunf I received today from a company called Life Line Screening, asking me to to pay £139 for four vascular ultrasound screenings. Unfortunately for them I live in East Anglia and science is a dirty word just now in these here parts.

Anyway, I recently had it done free through the National Health Service ('free' that is, if you define free as paying exorbitant taxes and National Insurance payments for a lifetime). Topical in the US just now, I understand.

Comment 15 from the link: What REALLY blew the astronomer’s mind was when he stared at the image and asked “How does this happen?”…and a bluish-colored triangle appeared in the center reading “Ask again later”. Heh.

What’s the big deal, I’m sure we could just blame it on some “out of control Russian rocket”.

Mystery solved by Homer Simpson... it's a "doh-nut" in "hex-nut", but in this case a yummy crunchy cakey fits 4 earths inside doh-nut.

Can you tell I've been on a diet?

Could it be a Zionist Conspiracy? Six sided hexagons aren't all that different from 6 pointed stars...and I am sure the Zionists aren't content with Judea and Samaria, but have some sort of nebulous plans for Saturn.
