"an expedition that he hopes will result in the discovery of the lost island of Atlantis...when the scientists submerge a copper canister with the flags of Cyprus, the EU and a specially designed Atlantis flag five hours out at sea from Limassol port...where he believes was the plain of Atlantis"
"This discovery is the holy grail of all archaeological discoveries...The world could never be the same after this discovery. We celebrate the joining of Cyprus with the EU with this flag ceremony and we are going to sail over the area where we believe the cities of Atlantis were located...we hope some day in the future the world will once again find it and remember this day long after we hopefully discovered the temples of Atlantis.
Totally, irreversibly, hopelessly, nuts!
Also, apparently rich enough to hire a boat to prove it.

No kidding. What's the point of the flags? What, is he expecting to make contact with the ancient Atlanteans? He better be careful, because last time I checked, they're hostile to surface dwellers.
