The Found (?!) City of Atlantis

14 Mar

Yahoo (okay, really Reuters) is reporting that a team of scientists may have found the lost city of Atlantis.  Apparently it’s in Spain, and not really underwater, but in a marsh.  (?!)  They’re saying that Atlantis is so far inland (and not actually in the ocean as we’ve all been taught to believe) and that it was destroyed in a giant tsunami that reached it’s location 60 miles from the coast.  (Coincidentally, they waited until this week to release this information.  Hmmmm.  Can you think of any current event on which this might be meant to capitalize?)

I found this story via The Mary Sue.

MaggieCakes is a blog about culture, social media, and what’s new on the Internet. Every day (okay, I try for every day) I comb blogs and news outlets for the news about Internet culture and social media to bring them to you (with my commentary, of course) here on MaggieCakes. MaggieCakes is hosted by WordPress and often draws upon Slate, Jezebel, The Hair Pin, and SocialTimes for links and inspiration. My post Social Media and the Art of Storytelling was featured on Freshly Pressed, bringing a whole new readership to my blog. Find anything interesting in the worlds of culture or social media that you’d like to see a post on? Leave a comment or send me an e-mail at
