I found this is one of todays newspapers - makes for interesting reading<br /><br />H_C<br /><br />After being lost for more than 107 years, any collectors or fan's of the British author Herbert George Wells will be delighted of an amazing find in a local residents attic. While during a loft conversion, Mr J Smith from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands came across some old note paper, wriiten in 1897 by H.G. Wells during the time that his classic science fiction story 'The War Of The Worlds' was being penned. Without realising the nature of the find, Mr Smith contacted us about his find and below can be seen an excerpt from a chapter that was never to be published<br /><br />Observing The Martians (later changed to What We Saw From The Ruined House)<br /><br />The Martians were the most incredible creatures I had ever imagined. After there long journey through space from their planet, and after the daunting time of entering our strange atmosphere here on Earth, the Martians were able to to construct a scale model of the 'Cutty Sark' from various splinters of wood from a fractured tree that hung over the edge of the pit. As time pasted on and night fell, the Martians camp took on a new meaning. After there feeding of baked beans, the Martians, lined in a row of some six, began a hour long ritual of burping and farting in a style similar to the music of Elton John. Amazed at this specticle before us I crouched closer to the peep hole only to be forced back by an eye watering stench that drfited from their vicinity.<br /><br />The next morning at the sun peaked above the fractured tree on the edge of the pit, I could see through the broken window a dozen Martians working out along to a exercise video by Caprice as a group of four squarels looked on in disbelief.

By the way... I hope you (Horsell Common) realized that the text you found was a joke or something like that.... I don't think Elton John existed so many years ago... Hehe.. :D

"Gathered arround the pit that night, for the first time I saw the way in which the Martians made use of the insidious red weed. The nimble handling machine would stride through the vast growths, gathering the tallest stalks and returning with them to the camp. The martians would then grind the weed into a fine powder, wrap it tightly in a roll of paper, and set it alight with a glaring flash of the heat ray.

As the roll slowly burned, it released a think green smoke, like that which I had seen rising from the pit at Horsell Common on the night after the cylinder first opened. The roll was passed from martian to martian, and each would raise it to their wet lipless mounths and with a deep breath inhlae the vaporous clouds. They would then sit arround the pit, and begin to hoot and quiver, erraticaly whipping about their tentacles and at time stoping to carefuly examine the whiplike appndages before resuming their strange ringing cries. The peircing "Ullas" would ring through the dead of night, like grim peircing laugh as our conquerors mocked the fallen empire of man.

Odly, the event would always be shortly folowed by feeding on the blood of captured men..."

I'll explain for him.

When he writes *Falls down Animie style* he means that he has basically fainted because something that has been said has caused this reaction. So it is a cartoon-like over reaction to something unexpected.

In Manga cartoons characters often just fall to the ground, if confronted by something challenging or as a sign of embarressment, etc...

So basically you have flawed Oever when he writes this, you have bouled him over, for a more English expression.


Bah bah black sheap April diamond spheres, Rigsby, Rigsby, Eight sided Pears.

"With the red weed burning steadily, and their veins filled with fresh human blood, the Martians would then proceed to... draw. The strange shapes and outlines they would etch into the sand arround them, or write out on papers left behind from before, twisted figures that resembled their own. Beings with massive, shimmering eyes, angular faces, odly coloured skin, and greatly exagarated features. Though clearly alien, I cannot help but feel the emotions expressed by these bright and colourfull immages which the martians pain out with such precision..."
