Built from a UFO just like this that crashed into the Tiber during the Crucifiction

Rome - (X-Files): An astrologically aligned circular bonking hole, er...banqueting hall! - built for Rome's Emperor Nero bares all the hallmarks of a retro-engineered UFO according to archaeological reports.

The Palatine Hill discovery forms part of Nero's Domus Aurea, built circa AD 60 from salvaged alien craft that crashed into the Tiber during the time of the Crucifiction.

Archaeologists believe the circular dining room used to hover inches above the ground after canny Roman stonemasons retro-engineered the craft's anti-gravity rotors.

Legendary ancient Roman historian Suetonius once said he thought Nero liked to make people feel dizzy.

"It was a bit of a party trick at the Emperor's notorious orgies," Suetonius once commented.

"Of course some people got seasick while others had out-of- body-experiences, usually after Nero's curried goat signature dish.

"But the anti-gravity device apparently really enhanced orgasm. Nero sure loved his little gadgets!"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
