While I may piss off the last editor of this page, I reverted the changes, as I didn't see the need for another Bush bashing, WMD page. There are plenty here, and most are far more entertaining than this one was. Plus, I'm a sucker for giant space gerbils. I also added in a ((stub)), as it could use some minor work, to really shine.

This is obviously a new version of Dark Ages (the comment above refers to an earlier version). Just thought I'd let you know. Still working on this, but hopefully not much longer.--Procopius 20:23, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
- Done. Er, not that this is perfect by any means . . .--Procopius 01:36, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
- Great stuff! I love this peeved tone in an article, every once in a while for flavour. :-) -BaronGrackle 21:25, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
- Could use more giant space gerbils, though...
edit alternative views on the Dark Ages
A cheap joke, I know, but this is what I came up with. Could it be added to the article.
"More recent scientific studies have revealed that the term "dark ages" may indeed have historical meaning. In Circa 500 AD, a planetoid, exactly the size of Europe was flung on orbit around the earth, exactly over Europe. This planetoid blocked most natural sunlight to Europe between 500 AD and 1000 AD, and was the most probable cause of the Dark ages.
This theory is supported by several Muslim accounts, who describe Europeans (who refered to as Goths) as "hidiously pale, vile creatures of the night" and Europe as "the dark north"
The theory is also supported by major American eletronic corporations. These corporations were naturally under Incan ownership at the time, but exact records remain, carved on stone.
The said corporations have reported that they made "big bucks" out of the rapidly increasing demand for lightbulbs in Europe. Apparently lightbulbs were nessecary for survival due to the extremely low levels of natural light, and America was the only source of lamps for Europeans. Crates full of lightbulbs were sold to the European kingdoms with astronomical price tags, and this monopoly caused immense trade deficit for the European powers, except for the Vikings, they purchased cheap Chinese versions, or stole lamps from the British during their raids.
However, the American monopoly over lightbulbs was gradually lost, as the Europeans evantually aquired the lamp production methods circa 940 AD and subsequently the lamp maker's guild was established in Europe. Despite these developments, the price of lightbulbs remained high and lightbulbs were the most cherished treasures of every village.
But this was not to remain, In 1000 AD, another object was crashed against the planetoid, flunging it away to the outter-space. The darkness finally passed, and natural light flooded to the European continent, thus ending the so-called dark ages."
As a result of the impact of these two space objects, large amounts of radioactive debris were thrown into orbit around the earth. These can still be observed in certain parts of the world, and are known as the Northern Lights, a term borrowed from a historical journal written by Wiccan author Philip Pullman.
