The Untold Truth Of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos

You recognize the man, even if you don't recognize the name. Here, let's refresh your memory — ALIENS? Yep, that's Giorgio Tsoukalos. Ever since he (and his awesome hair) appeared on Ancient Aliens — the show that presupposes that almost all our ancient tech was created outside our atmosphere — Tsoukalos has become an internet meme, highly used to suggest that something seemingly normal was actually aliens. You know the meme, you love the meme, but how much do you actually know about the man...

    The Untold Truth Of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos - Grunge

    You recognize the man, even if you don't recognize the name. Here, let's refresh your memory — ALIENS? Yep, that's Giorgio Tsoukalos. Ever since he (and his awesome hair) appeared on Ancient Aliens — the show that presupposes that almost all our ancient tech was created outside our atmosphere — Tsoukalos has become an internet meme, highly used to suggest that something seemingly normal was actually aliens. You know the meme, you love the meme, but how much do you actually know about the man behind it? Well aside from his name and his hair, there's some stuff we're betting you didn't know...

    In 2009, the History Channel's Ancient Aliens took a far-out concept and rocketed it into the pop culture hive mind. It dared to ask two questions: "Was it aliens?" and "Are we serious?" Unfortunately, eight years later, it's failed to come up with a suitable answer to either. Viewed through an objective and superficial lens, it's a show about passionate people discussing far-fetched ideas. Viewed through the lens of the public eye, it's either hard-hitting science that The Man doesn't want you to know about or a Yertle the Turtle pile of stupidity towering into the heavens. (Side note: Ever wonder how they stacked the turtles so high in that book? Aliens.)

    If you count yourself among the legions of debt-saddled millennials who slashed cable television out of their bills about a decade ago, you probably think of the History Channel as being a continuous 24/7 stream of World War II documentaries. But over the years, a lot has changed over at the big H. While History.com continues to be a well-sourced encyclopedic resource of everything that's ever happened, the website's TV counterpart has become ... well, if the old History Channel was a do-gooder straight-A student, the new History is a cranky old conspiracy theorist who secretly binges reality shows.

    Since its inception in 1995, The History Channel has been popular with TV fans who are fascinated by the secrets of the past. The network is known for its documentary series, which have focused on everything from major turning points like World War II to niche subjects like alleged alien encounters. It has also been recognized for its striking historical dramas, such as The Bible and Vikings. However, it's perhaps most famous for its reality TV programming. Many of its shows, such as Pawn Stars and Ice Road Truckers, give audiences a peek into the daily lives of people with fascinating jobs. Others, such as Alone and Top Shot, are intense competitions that test skills like wilderness survival and marksmanship...
