Fiction = Reality ?

We live in crazy times, it seems. Not only did some scientists discover some mineral resembling kryptonite. On the BBC ‘s site it says:

Once the London expert had unravelled the mineral’s chemical make-up, he was shocked to discover this formula was already referenced in literature – albeit fictional literature.

“Towards the end of my research I searched the web using the mineral’s chemical formula – sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide – and was amazed to discover that same scientific name, written on a case of rock containing kryptonite stolen by Lex Luthor from a museum in the film Superman Returns.

It won’t be called ‘kryptonite’, though, but Jadarite. Then, the next thing; earth-like planet discovered! BoingBoing has a short post in this. Nevermind that the surface temperature is about 400-750º Fahrenheit…

And then, as the icing on the cake, a stoned dude dressed up as Capt. America gropes unsuspecting women. That he had a burrito stuffed into his pants doesn’t make things less creepy. The Smoking Gun Website has pictures, a video clip, and the entire story. (link)

When I read these stories this morning I had the eerie feeling that ‘comicworld’ is bleeding into ‘reality’. Creepy. I just wonder what happens next… UFOs landing in Washington and Tehran offering to negotiate in exchange for all our water…?
