Like Istanbul or St. Petersburg, Russia, the city of Tampa once went by a different name. According to the following YouTube clip and its accompanying book, Atlantis Was America: Tampa Was The Royal City, the humble little town I’m living in was once the lost city of Atlantis. This according to author Dennis Brooks and his 30 years of research on the ancient writings of Plato.

And in the words of the nearly-as-wise modern-age philosopher Scarface from the stirring cinematic masterpiece “Half Baked“, “I believe him, yo. I don’t know why, but I do.”

Oh, by the way, if I am out of the loop for the next few days, it’s because this weekend I am moving from the ‘burbs smack dab into the middle of Atlantis’s former Royal City.

Moving sucks.
