Why didn't you just sandbox this until you had the start of an article? - π 05:08, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps you are right. We are liveblogging something right now, but will probably get to our stubs afterwards. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 05:10, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
it's a stub. More will come later. There is not a requirement to start articles in sandboxes. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:13, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
No this is a stub. What we have now is less than a stub, the stub of a stub if you will. - π 05:15, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
I would consider it a work in progress. It's not like we just made it to ignore it. We just gotta finish watching this moron on TV, and then we'll get to writing more. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 05:17, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Fuck off Pi. Please put the "new article editing rules" on my talk page so I will know what they are. Is the new rule "sandbox it until you have 30k"? What is your fucking problem, exactly? ħumanUser talk:Human 06:34, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
If this was anyone else but you doing it you would be deleting and reverting there material. However there appears to be one set of rules for you and one for anyone else that tries to help out. You feel perfectly entitled to jump all over newbies poor editing, reverting every single edit they make that does meet your arbitrary standards, but you can just leave what ever shit you like all over the mainspace and we should worship as a great contribution. - π 06:42, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm not asking for worship, I just want to know what the new rules are for starting articles that you are implying. This topic is totally on mission, and now includes a very useful EL for anyone who wants to help. If you doubt it's missiony thing, you're fucking nuts. So it's a stub. It's a completely on-topic stub. And is linked from elsewhere. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:57, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Tsoukalos?[edit]

τσουκάλι (tsoukali) means "pot" in Greek, so this guy is very appropriately named. "Tsoukalo" also means a very specific kind of pot in Bulgarian...--ZooGuard (talk) 14:09, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

In the paraphrased verse of Van Morrison, "He's as sweet as τσουκάλι honey. He's an alien in the first degree." — Unsigned, by: Giggle / talk / contribs

Entry point[edit]

It seems that this article has become quite popular on a search engine starting with G. I've added the entry point category accordingly. -- Nx / talk 22:37, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Removed text[edit]

"This man is nothing more than a simpleminded chimp. He speaks with an authority that is, in fact, unfounded, and undeserved. He is actually derelict, and sub intelligent version, of a fictional character named Sheldon Cooper. A know it all, but with a twist, he knows nothing, and enjoys clutching at straws." inserted by Muaythaijedi--Scream!! (talk) 01:29, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Know Your Meme[edit]

Should we add one of the the picture from Tsoukalsos' KYM page just for shits, and giggles?Ryantherebel (talk) 20:20, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Hell, I'd say rack 'em all up on a randomised template, but that's just me. ADK...I'll condense your furry! 02:17, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Everyone is welcome to their opinions and I am not an Ancient Alien promoter or anything, but let's stick to truth and not resort to lying just for the purpose of slandering someone. He does not believe the Babylonian people had nuclear weapons, he believes the aliens used some kind of nuclear weapon because of the descriptions given about melting skin, the loss of hair and fingernails, etc. — Unsigned, by: 71.194.190.147 / talk / contribs

Almost every utterance Mr. Tsoukalos makes is discussion worthy, without having to resort to false attributions. Here's a recent one (yes, I am compelled to watch A.A., just as I am compelled to watch a five car pile up on I-95): He implied there is a design relationship between CERN's Large Hadron Collider and the Mayan calendar, because they look similar. I assume that is because both are round, and sort of divided into pie-like segments. Now, I don't know what you think, but I think that's one of the most probing, no-B.S. observations a deep thinking science-driven individual can possibly make. In Tsoukalos's own words, "Coincidence? I think not!" Giggle (talk) 09:48, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Giorgio's Hair[edit]

I find it hard to take anyone serious with hair that looks like Giorgio's. It seems to negate the small amount of credibility he may have. If he really would like people to take him seriously he would change his hair style to something less daft looking. By leaving it looking the way it does, is it a subconcious message to say "what I am saying is as daft as my hair!"? — Unsigned, by: 86.157.176.228 / talk / contribs

No, his hair is what gives him the little credibility he has. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:27, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
You have seen Simon Singh and Ben Goldacre's respective bouffants, right? Scarlet A.pngnarchist 12:21, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
His hair accentuates his cranium parietal extension, which we know based on ancient Peruvian and Egyptian mummies, and some present day primitive African tribes, is exactly how aliens look. Coincidence? "I think not!" (Tsoukalos, 2012). — Unsigned, by: Giggle / talk / contribs
