I've seen things like this before written up. Its never been all that clear what they did with the batteries, but it is interesting.
They used the batteries in their secret weapons of mass destruction program.
I heard about this a while ago, at least i assume it is the same one. They conjectured that it might have been used for electroplating objects with gold and silver.
I have you never seen the upper lip on a Iraqi woman....early form of electrolysis....
Apples holding back the release of the new iPod to incorperate the 2,200 year old battery found in baghdad. It is claimed it will allow 100 hour of playback Apple were unavailable for comment.
I saw this story, was interested - whent over to slashdot looking for some geek perspective - found what may turn out to be the Iraq flamewar of the week.
link, please?!!! this has got to be great! i swear, the people at slashdot can argue over anything.
Now here's the kicker...
INT. ANCIENT TEMPLE - DAY
A LONE MAN struggles against a large stone slab. Sweat trickles down his forehead. He grabs a crowbar and with a GRUNT manages to yank the mighty stone aside.
There is a GROAN of stale air exploding into the room. The lone man covers his face with a clothe. He waits. The dust clears as he enters the room.
INT. ANCIENT TEMPLE - ANTECHAMBER - DAY
The room is filled with large ceramic jars. The lone man lights a torch and enters. The light is not strong enough to illuminate the room, however he presses forward.
His foot catches something.
He trips. The room reverberates with the echo of his footsteps.
He presses forward.
Suddenly, he stops. He GASPS.
Before him is a glowing object: something square, no, rectangular. It's about a foot and a half tall... has a small square design in front, and a small rectangular line about three inches wide below the design.
He pulls out his book. It's filled with hieroglyphics and suddenly notices that there are walls in this chamber that happen to have the exact same symbols.
His eyes follow the different faces of the different figures plastered across the wall. Some look egyptian. Others look familiar... Some look like two characters in an epic battle.
The lone man (hereafter known as "PROFESSOR") turns around.
A younger man, NEWTON, walks in.
So, you've finally opened the vault.
Yes. And I think I've found something.
All the prophecies are true... see these
symbols on the walls? Those are
what have been...
(point to another wall)
And those are where we are now.
Newton freezes as he examines the figures in the dim light.
Professor, that man there -- I know his face.
Him? You should. Steven Jobs. The other one --
the one cloaked in darkness -- Gates.
And these ceramic jars?
Wow. So, even back then those ancients
had an idea about things to come...
Yes. We are living in an age of darkness
right now. We are also at a junction point
where the armies of Good must combat
the armies of Darkness...
Yes. We are living in the end times.
Even now there are forces amassing
around the world over the next
But you won't live long enough to
see it, I'm afraid...
Ouch... (That'll leave a mark...)
