Stuff Not In Our History Books, Why

Incredibly mysterious piece of history unknown to most of us. It was just on at Public Station in the Austin/San Antonio, TX area, KLRU at 2 freakin AM. Has this not been on The History Channel, The Discovery Channel or National Geographic? Makes you wonder what else you don't know about the history of world around us.

Check out another, more recent, piece of American history that's missing from our history books at the site in the 'submitted by' line or burnelli.com.
