Mountain of the Dead: The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Mountain of the Dead: The Dyatlov Pass Incident
One of the most bizarre, not to mention flat out terrifying, mysteries of the modern age concerns the enigmatic deaths of nine Russian mountaineers whose cross-country skiing trip ended in a tragedy so ghastly and perplexing that it has mystified experts for over half a century. Excursions into nature can be serene for some and exhilarating for others, but for an unfortunate few these sojourns into the untouched wilds of our world can be tragic. Still other such journeys into the unknown end in such unfathomably frightening circumstances that they become the stuff of legend. The proof of this tragedy exists not only in the plethora of photographs that have been preserved, but also in the extensive records (many of which are still allegedly classified) of the Soviet military who investigated the odd case and were manifestly unable to reach any definitive conclusions despite an overwhelming amount of physical evidence. The date was January 28, 1959. Related:  Horror stuff, Including halloween, and funny-scary thingsMysteries

Three Dumb Ways to Committing Suicide Without Hurting Yourself It amuses me till this day why some human beings would opt for suicide because they are confronted with depressing situations. I don’t view suicide as option considering the fact that it is a sin against God. But if you must do it, then these are three ways you can achieve it without hurting yourself 1: Get a loaded gun and lock yourself up in a bathroom. Next, say your last prayers, let the prayers be short because you will be going to hell anyway. After saying your prayers, your next move should be going to stand in front of your bathroom mirror. After shooting at the mirror, go and have a cup of coffee before calling the police to come and pick up your corpse from your apartment. 2. 3. Confusing? Then let him stand in front of you while you use the tip of your left big toe to touch the tip of your left ear.

Oak Island Nova Scotia Money Pit A young man named Daniel McGinnis, 16, was exploring the island in 1795 and stumbled upon a strange depression in the sod beneath some oak trees. He began digging and, with the help of a couple other friends (John Smith, age 19 and Anthony Vaughan, age 16,) the three boys began using picks and shovels and having grand visions of pirate treasure. Four feet down they found a layer of flagstones not native to the area. Then ten feet further down they found a platform of oak logs closely set together, embedded in the walls of the shaft. The boys never found anything of worth except more and more mysterious circumstances. Now that you have some background on it, I want to bring up something new. 10 places of myth and legend - travel tips and articles Even though we can get to the other side of the world in less than a day, there are still places that resist becoming everyday.

The 32 Rules of Zombieland The new Zombieland TV Series just premiered on Amazon Prime for FREE and for the most part I enjoyed it. I think that the series will definitely find an audience if they play their cards right and don’t skimp on the production because episode 1 may not have been perfect but it was 30 minutes of unique zombie themed entertainment.

Researchers now able to stop, restart light By William J. Cromie Gazette Staff "Two years ago we slowed it down to 38 miles an hour; now we've been able to park it then bring it back up to full speed." Lene Hau isn't talking about a used motorbike, but about light – that ethereal, life-sustaining stuff that normally travels 93 million miles from the sun in about eight minutes. Less than five years ago, the speed of light was considered one of the universe's great constants. Hau, 41, a professor of physics at Harvard, admits that the famous genius would "probably be stunned" at the results of her experiments. "It's nifty to look into the chamber and see a clump of ultracold atoms floating there," Hau says. She and her team continued to tweak their system until they finally brought light to a complete stop. Inspired by Hau's success at slowing light, researchers working on a wooded hill a few miles away at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) used a similar technique to stop, then restart, a light beam.

Anything You Say on Facebook Can & Will Be Used Against You in a Court Of Law Facebook may seem like a harmless hobby, but make no mistake: The blunders you post on the site can come back to haunt you. In March, a Michigan man was charged with polygamy after he shared photos from his second marriage on Facebook. The wedding was a surprise to his first wife, from whom he was separated, but not divorced. More recently, a Virginia court fined a widower and his attorney a combined $722,000 after trying to pull a fast one on the legal system. After a truck overturned and killed his wife, the widower filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the trucker and his employer. But when the defendant asked for a copy of the widower’s Facebook page as part of their discovery request, the widower and his lawyer deleted the widower’s account instead of producing it. With increasing frequency, people are finding that their Facebook posts can be used against them in the court of law. A Lot of Incriminating Evidence But it’s not just the pictures that can get you in trouble. Jennifer E.
