Even nearby cows seemed upset by it.

Coordinates: Location of Dyatlov Pass, Russia The Dyatlov Pass incident generally refers to the mysterious deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural mountains on the night of February 2, 1959.
The incident happened on the east shoulder of the mountain Kholat Syakhl (Холат-Сяхыл, a Mansi name, meaning Dead Mountain). The mountain pass where the incident occurred has since been named Dyatlov Pass (Перевал Дятлова) after the group's leader, Igor Dyatlov (Игорь Дятлов).

DefCon: 20 Years of Hackers, Hijinks and Snooping Feds. 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. Next month, DefCon will celebrate its 20th year, by bringing back some of the original speakers that made year one so special.Hackers on Board Jeff Moss (third from left in second row) packed into a VW with his band of happy hacker friends in Las Vegas during the first year of the DefCon hacker conference.
6 Insane Discoveries That Science Cant Explain. We like to feel superior to the people who lived centuries ago, what with their shitty mud huts and curing colds by drilling a hole in their skulls.
But we have to give them credit: They left behind some artifacts that have left the smartest of modern scientists scratching their heads.

Here is the story. "On 23 March 1994, the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald Opus and concluded that he died from a shotgun wound of the head. The decedent had jumped from the top of a ten- story building intending to commit suicide (he left a note indicating his despondency).

No, these are the images and concepts that stayed with us long after we found Waldo, and for probably the wrong reasons. Whether amusing, horrifying, bizarre, or simply too historically accurate for our own good, Waldo's journeys took us down some interesting paths by way of subject matter that Handford has all but wiped from the most recent Waldonian adventures, possibly thanks to pressure from his publisher.
