Mysteries What is it about the bizarre and mysterious that piques our curiosity? It entertains our sense of wonder and excites our imagination, for sure. Luckily for us, history is marked with strange, logic-defying occurrences to amuse us.

In 1992, former hacker Jeff Moss invited a bunch of hacker friends he'd met primarily on electronic bulletin boards to come to Las Vegas to party in the desert. That party grew into a legendary conference that's become one of the premiere gatherings for hackers from around the world - as well as for undercover intelligence agents who want to spy on them (or recruit them). More than 7,000 hackers and security professionals attend annually. Other hacker conferences have tried to copy DefCon's secret sauce throughout the years, but none have been able to match its successful mix of smart talks, organized chaos and hearty parties.

Martin Handford's Where's Waldo books have been adored by kids the world over since the absent minded candy striped hitchhiker first made his debut in 1987. That being said, this is not an effort to defame the Waldo (or "Wally" depending on where you're reading this) books because frankly, life would be much less cool without them. Instead, our ambition is to point out some of their most noteworthy peculiarities -- things that we didn't necessarily find mentioned on the scrolls and postcards adorning each map, or on the checklists in the back of each book. No, these are the images and concepts that stayed with us long after we found Waldo, and for probably the wrong reasons. 9 Strange Things Found While Searching for Waldo - Topless Robot
