In Ridley Scott's recent film Prometheus, humanoid aliens called "Engineers" are depicted at the dawn of time, wearing long gray hooded robes. One of them disrobes, and, wearing only a loincloth that bears more than a passing resemblance to this blog's own beloved fundoshi, ingests a seething black globular substance that breaks down his DNA rapidly, sending his dissolved remains plummeting over the edge of a waterfall and into the waters of a planet we can only assume was Earth.
So in the universe of Prometheus, the fundoshi has an ancestor/architect just as humanity does! A fun thought for today. There are a few more pictures of the loincloth-clad Engineer after the break.
