What are we, Local Tourism Wiki now? WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:57, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Well, International Tourism. OK, I know I have written it in a tongue-in-cheek manner, but as well as illustrating some of the absurd theories surrounding Roslin Chapel, I did want to touch on some of effects (both positive and negative) that the exploitation of interest in these theories can have. The Chapel has benefited from its increased income which has helped fund the much needed restoration work. However the effects on the local community are not so straightforward.

But why should this website or its readers care? The effects on the local economy of a local site being mentioned in a work of fiction don't really fall within our missions. WẽãšẽĩõĩďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:21, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

The actual conspiracy group[edit]

Is the continuing 'Order of Artistic, Literary and Architectural etc Puzzle Makers' (who wish to ensure that their work is looked after by future generations). Their guiding principle is James Joyce's comment on Ulysses (see [1]) and they are in conflict with the 'X was here' group (who emerged shortly after writing was invented - citation not needed).

Horned Moses[edit]

This may be a mistranslation issue - but there are various websites which claim otherwise. Anna Livia (talk) 12:42, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
