The Mysterious: The Philadelphia Experiment

          This month’s mystery takes us back to the strange world of conspiracy theories. What we’ll be discussing today is perhaps the most gruesome and more enduring legends surrounding the United States Military. Did the military truly cause a ship to teleport in a misguided attempt to develop invisibility technology? Did poor souls truly end up [...]

The Mysterious: The Titanic Switch Theory

          For this month’s mystery, we’re dipping our toes into the world of conspiracy theories. For this first venture into such a....widely varied (and often sinister) topic, I wanted to cover something that is not destructive and somewhat debunked. This month, we’ll look at whether the Titanic was actually the ship that sank on April 14, [...]

The Mysterious: Shugborough Monument

          This month’s archeological and historical mystery - the first of the year! - is a strange one. Reading about it has pushed me to the edge of a migraine, mostly because there are many, many people who believe they have solved it.

Who Were the Maya?           We’re going [...]

To celebrate here at the Morbid Library, we’re going to cover one of Michigan’s most interesting and lesser-known mysteries. If you haven’t realized (or didn’t read the author page) - I’m from Michigan [...]

The Mysterious: Kentucky Meat Shower

          Before we get into this month’s mystery, I have to warn you all: this is a gross one. I strongly advise against eating while reading. Especially when we get into examining just what exactly fell from the sky on that strange day in Kentucky. Ready? Buckled in? Let’s explore the mystery of the Kentucky Meat [...]

The Mysterious: Mystery Hill in New Hampshire

          Mystery Hill is often referred to as “America’s Stonehenge.” Why? I have absolutely no idea. Stonehenge is made up of giant monoliths that defy any attempts to find meaning. Mystery Hill is a series of short stone walls, stone structures, and an acre of granite with ruts dug into it. The similarity to Stonehenge ends [...]
