As a result of David Tennant not carrying the Olympic Torch, we were all plunged into an alternate timeline that threatened to destroy Earth.  Acting quickly, we were able to send Matt Smith back in time to carry it, which prevented the Earth's destruction, but as it was not close enough to the original space/time continuity we've all been denied the eventual enlightenment and immortality that would have been bestowed upon us right after the closing ceremonies.

Did you know that the binary equivalent of an pulsar's negative atmosphere is able to support 27 forms of genetic stasis?

What came to be known as 'Jim Henson's Muppets' were actually simply copies of a group of gods worshipped by ancient Mayan children.  This astonishing fact was recently discovered in some of Jim Henson's private papers.

In Mr. Henson's papers, he describes a visit to Central America early in his career.  During this trip he was privvy to previously untranslated Mayan texts.  In the translations, which he helped with, he learned of a particular 'Muppet' god that was particularly prized by Mayan children.  This god governed the migration of Mayans into their holiest of cities, and children would pray to this god that they could move into that city.  Thus would the population there be maintained.

However, with the effigy of this god not being produced by the high priests until years into the Mayan's domination of Central America, a terrible 'Muppet famine' plagued the Mayan culture the year the smaller 'home effigies' became available.  Scholars now believe that the decrease in prayers to this god starting that year was responsible for the ultimate collapse of Mayan civilization.

Further details in the translation described how the inability of each child to be able to pray to the god of their choice came about.  Because the children were expecting to have an effigy at home that they could pray to, children ceased going to the temples to pray to this god.  And so less prayers were made in this god’s name.  Because of this, gradually the population of their holiest city diminished to nothing.

Though many effigies were produced, there were still an inadequate number of representations of this god to get to every child who wanted one.  That was because, for their Winter Solstice gift in the year it was first produced, every young Mayan child had asked for the same thing:

When a limb "falls asleep", it's not really sleeping, just hypnotized.
