Starting at some point after 2003, China began constructing some odd things in the Gobi desert. Gizmodo has a post that details a number of them. Most are in the same general area. Most appear to be surface level, as if the ground was painted or paved with some material. You can see in some images and in Google Earth historical imagery that it appears that disturbed earth has been blown or tracked across some of the things. The bulk of the construction seems to have been completed around 2005. There are many conjectures as to what these could be – the prevailing theories circle around some sort of military target training as some areas have destroyed vehicles captured in the imagery. Other areas are painted odd or possibly filled with water. Other tin-foil guesses include some odd QR code for aliens. Whatever these items are, they are readily visible in satellite imagery so one early theory was that they were some sort of calibration mechanism for their surveillance satellites. While some “structures” (as much as you could consider them structures) could be that, I seriously think that the military targeting theory holds the best. One could think of this as any one of our military targeting ranges but likely on a much larger scale. Hmmm, maybe we shouldn’t be cutting back on that intel & military budget quite yet.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
