    I still don't think we really know who killed Kennedy (or was behind it). That was a big event in my 10 year old life.

    My serious answer is the D.B. Cooper case: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D._B._Cooper

    A man using a pseudonym hijacked an airplane, successfully extorted a high amount of cash, then parachuted out of the plane with the money. Nobody knows who he actually was or what happened to him, though some of the money was found in the wilderness nearby years later.

    Now that was well planned!

    Serious answers. What a novel idea. Why Sparko didn't turn OBP into bacon when he had the chance?


    What? Not "serious enough? What could be more serious?

    Okay, okay. Let me thunkinate on this smiley hmm.gif




    How about, who was Jack the Ripper?



    Or for something more esoteric... what in the world is the Voynich manuscript?

    Less esoteric but along the same lines... who invented the Antikythera mechanism and were there other devices like it?

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I've spent hours reading about the Voynich manuscript. That's a weird one, for sure.

    I remember years ago Sparko had a theory on that. He suggested that there is a parallel universe where their clothes hangers are what go missing, and they are always finding extra socks in their dressers. Whereas in our universe, we seem to somehow always have extra hangers in the closets and our socks go missing. They are somehow being swapped between the universes.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    What? You are still fretting over an incident that happened to you a million years ago?
