Thanks to Peter Brusoe, a prospective member of Ubar Grotto, for sending this article our way.
Cracked.com – yeah, we know, it’s not a very reliable source – recently posted a humor article about The 5 Most Extravagant Ways Cities Have Been Wiped Out. What was number 5 on the list? You guessed it! Ubar!
It’s actually a pretty good history on the city and region and gives some plausible explanations as to what may have happened to our namesake. The article is pretty entertaining and worth a read. Enjoy!
