Buddhist Statue Found By Nazis Came From Outer Space

A Buddhist statue brought to Germany from Tibet by a Nazi-backed expedition has been confirmed as having an extraterrestrial origin.

Known as the ‘iron man’, the 24-centimetre-high sculpture may represent the god Vaiśravaṇa and was likely created from a piece of the Chinga meteorite that was strewn across the border region between Russia and Mongolia between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago, according to Elmar Buchner, of the University of Stuttgart in Germany, and his colleagues.

    Wait, is this an actual article or did someone run across part of the script for the next Avengers movie?

    No, I'm fucking serious. I just read "iron man", "Nazi steal religious artifact with extraterrestrial origins" in the same article. That shit better be about the next Avengers movie.
