    What happened to the picnic at Hanging Rock?

    It was a work of fiction I believe.

    Yeah Pinic at Hanging Rock is fiction. I remember it featuring on some myth busting thing as a story that people believe is true but it's got no basis in fact at all.

    That was great actually. Really interesting read.

    I'd like to think he's in Mexico, spending those bills in places that are unlikely to save it anywhere near a bank.

    But since not one bill has ever surfaced, save for the bundle near the drop site he's either dead or that money has been stashed and never reclaimed.

    I reckon hillbillies got 'im. He's somewhere holed up in a remote woodland region being ridden like a stuck pig :)

    Ace story though, keep 'em coming.

    Great read! Really enjoyed that, what a tale.

    It's some sort of fort type thing found in Sibera that is said to be 1500 years old.

    I do wonder if it's a photo shop knock up though as I remember hearing about this a couple of years ago but nothing new seems to have turned up since then.

    It's working again. Couldn't get the Spontaneous Human Combustion page to load before. They must've ironed out the flaw.

    I always quite like the Flannan Isle missing light house keepers story.

    Edit: its about a third of the way down that page I linked.

    Yep, that was brilliant.

    Zodiac is also a good story, and it's one of the most famous mysteries due to a couple of films being about it.

    Other parts in the description

    Quite freaky some of them, could all be staged for the show of course, probably.

    Was there any conclusion to the Cypriot plane that crashed into the side of a hill in Greece a couple of years back. The one where they found everyone inside frozen solid? Someone managed to text a friend to tell them they were cold, yet the pilots didn't have time to descend?

    They did the Baghdad battery on Mythbusters a while ago. It was confirmed to work, but you needed a whole array of them to get something that would produce enough electricity to light a tiny LED.

    I know it's not really a mystery, but does anyone know the name of that woman that tortured kids in her house in the US, years ago (couple of centuries ago, maybe). She kept them locked in her attic and did horrible things to them, and was discovered when there was a fire at her house. I don't know enough details about it for Google to help. :(

    I've seen quite a few of their shows and normally they seem to find either nothing, or nothing conclusive. They're pretty thorough on trying to debunk anything they do find and they've managed to clear up a few 'ghosts' with just a bit of detective/recreation attempts as purely natural phenomena.

    It's possible that they were being used to electroplate things which doesn't need high power as long as you have the time to wait.

    Sorry, but I laughed at this:

    Inside the crawlspace attic was the stench of death.

    Just reads a bit melodramatically. :D

    actor Nicolas Cage bought the LaLaurie House through his Hancock Park Real Estate Company LLC.

    I knew he'd have something to do with it.
