    I return to find that you lot have missed the Knights Templar story!

    They have found a significant 700 year-old cave under a field in Shropshire that was once used by the Knights Templar. How cool is that?!?

    EDIT: The story is only 3 hours old at the time of posting this. I checked.

    I did spot it on a news feed earlier, interesting stuff!
    The article wasn’t very in depth though.

    Be interesting to see if there are any artifacts or if it’s been cleaned out.

    Good pub, that. Although, when it comes to selecting your drinking vessel you must choose wisely.

    It’s apparently Georgian according to some historian chaps on the Twitter. It’s been known about for years. Nowt to do with the Knights Templar

    It’s actually Joe Cocker’s tomb

    It wasn’t in the Da Vinci code, which is a renowned historical tract and therefore I call bullshit.

    Why would Joe Cocker need a tomb? Advance planning?

    It is cool in itself. But surely lots of things were used by the knights templar at some point or another? And why are/were they special?

    We’ve got a couple of those christmas decorations that spin round from the heat of tea lights underneath; there is a massive variation in how long tea lights from different places last and how quickly they make the thing spin, so maybe they just found a really good source?

    It seems the caves are more likely to be 18th or 19th century.

    Illuminati, bad Dan Brown fiction and crap Nicholas Cage films, also because they were amazingly wealthy and no one admitted to getting the wealth after they were disbanded.

    The Pope’s hat might have got a bit bigger and more golden and I suspect 🙂
