If you were wondering might happen to that massive legendary cache of unopened E.T. game cartridges for the Atari 2600… apparently you’ll have the chance to own one via the New Mexico Museum of Space History.

But the fact is that a New Mexico state trooper is in hot water after being caught on tape fucking a woman on the hood of a car. And that’s usually frowned upon.

Supposedly discovered hidden in the deserts of New Mexico in the 1880s, the ancient stone you see above is carved with the writing of ancient Greece.
