There really is nothing like a good well structured mystery, conspiracy theories and cold cases have long been studied. Depending on your mentality, you either believe that some of these are already solved or you have never heard of them. Read on dear reader, and join us on a journey through history and mystery!
Note; some of these entries/videos contain graphic descriptions of adult material, you have been warned.
The Potomskiy Crater
What would you think if you were walking around a forest, and suddenly you came across a crater with a large sphere in the center of it? If you were anything like the man who stumbled across such a sight, you’d be extremely confused.
Such is the case when such a sight was discovered in Potomskiy forest. A large tract of ground was scattered and shifted, and in the center of an impact was a massive sphere.
Weighing over 1 million tons, theories are wild on what exactly this could possibly be. The first guess is that it is a meteorite that went unnoticed, but the impact left too little damage.
Conspiracies surrounding supposed Nazi superweapons have been rolling around for almost 100 years now. With no shortage of these conspiracies, one has some disturbingly real logic and witnesses to back it up.
Weapon in question is that of Die Glocke, or ‘The Bell’. A bell shaped device that produced an electronic field/vibration so strong that it liquified organs and created crystals in bloodstreams.
Normally, this would be the part where we say ‘this absolutely did not exist’. However, there were blueprints, witnesses and documents backing up that the technology did actually exist.
Four scientists did indeed escape to an extremely remote island off the tip of Europe called Gavdos. They built a small home and were determined to live out their late stage cancer in peace, only to be mysteriously healed. Theories range from Atlantis, the Fountain of Youth or just pure luck.
The Mattress Store is a Front
A few years back, a Redditor made a post, asking people what conspiracy theories they believed without a shadow of a doubt. One Redditor had an answer that nobody had heard before.
He/She went into great detail about how the stores are always empty, they’re everywhere and the employees are beyond useless. The theory caught like wildfire, even getting far enough to prompt a response from the CEO of Mattress Firm.
This theory may seem like a pretty wacky idea, but it has become one of the most studied theories by internet sleuths.
9/11 Was an Inside Job
Sometimes tragedy is nothing but a breeding place for paranoid people to take advantage. Which is where most people start and stop with the 9/11 theory that it was a planned attack by the American Government.
We’re not here to convince either side, there’s information that supports one side and some that supports another. Ultimately it comes down to what you believe as an individual.
Cicada 3301 is a CIA Recruitment Tool
You’d be forgiven for not even knowing what the hell Cicada 3301 is or where it came from. Truth of the matter is, we still technically don’t know the answer to either of those.
Originally discovered on the Dark web, which is a conspiracy of itself, Cicada 3301 is a massive world spanning puzzle game. Consisting of locations, mathematics, geography, science etc.
Winners of Cicada are not named, disappear and as such people are never given any closure to what the hell this point is. Any one of us could’ve won, and you’d never know.
Who Killed Elisa Lam?
In February of 2013, after residents of a hotel complained of foul smells, and murky water, a horrific discovery was made by janitorial crew. The body of a young woman was stuffed into the water reservoir on top of the building.
Several of the hikers were found either naked or near naked, clutching at something and in some cases missing their tongues. Things got even weirder when the campsite was searched and investigators saw that some tents were ripped open from the inside.
What exactly happened to the nine hikers is still up for debate. Some say that it was an extreme case of group hysteria, others say they were attacked by a cryptid or murdered.
In October of 2002, two men carried out a series of vicious attacks seemingly at random throughout the D.C. area. Despite extensive searches, raids and set ups, the men were not captured for ten whole months.
So what exactly was the logic behind the theory of a set up? Well, due to both of the men’s mental fortitude, physical fitness and history that was recorded by the military, it just did not add up. People found it hard to believe that there was any reasoning behind it outside of something higher up. You be the judge.
Northwoods is just one such, a proposed False Flag attack that would’ve prompted the US in an open war with Cuba. The Operation would have seen the US Military staging random terror attacks on the American people that would’ve been tied to Cubans sent by Fidel Castro.
There you have it! Some of the more less known and distressing conspiracies/mysteries from around the world. While the rabbit hole can sometimes only go so far due to lack of knowledge, there are several ways to investigate.
