Angkor Wat - defining old.

Image
From wikipedia; "Angkor Wat (Khmer: អង្គរវត្ត) was first a Hindu, then subsequently a Buddhist, temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world."
I'm just putting this out there; in every science fiction serial, there's always a point where the the team goes and digs through the ruins of a lost civilization and finds the Eternal 9 Volt Battery that saves the day. I don't know that there's anything there, but we should dispatch a team, right the hell now. Yes, I know we could simply ask the Buddhists that are already there, but even if they admitted they had it, they'd have to tell us it was all an illusion, anyway.
Plus, this gives me an excuse to showcase some really good photos of a cultural and architectural masterpiece that's older than dirt!
