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: Agatha Christie’s Disappearance

          This month’s mystery is another literary one. Agatha Christie is one of the best mystery writers to have ever lived, creating beloved characters that live on in pop culture today. However, despite the number of mysteries Christie penned, one she lived through has lived on as the most confounding and complex enigmas in the literary …

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. I hope you’re interested in codes and ciphers, because we’re about to wade …

The Mysterious: The “Lost” Maya

          This month’s mystery is a historical mystery with a dash of archaeology. We’ll be discussing what happened to the great Mayan civilization. More importantly, why do all of the impressive, expansive cities found within the Mayan Empire seem abandoned. And why, frustratingly, do people consider the Mayan Civilization lost? Who Were the Maya?           We’re going …

The Mysterious: Michigan Stonehenge

          As promised in last month’s historical mystery post, this month we will be discussing Lake Michigan Stonehenge, what it actually is, what it could be, and why it’s there. Now, that sounds like a lot to cover, but there’s surprisingly not many legitimate sources surrounding this structure under the choppy waters of Lake Michigan. Take …

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: Georgia Guidestones

          There are a lot of things in the United States that are referred to as “America’s Stonehenge.” In fact, we’ve already taken a look at one of them: Mystery Hill in New Hampshire. For most of these things, the designation as something even in the ballpark of Stonehenge makes me roll my eyes. Stonehenge is …

The Mysterious: Sylvia Plath Effect

         This month’s cultural mystery is the strange and disquieting Sylvia Plath Effect. Sylvia is perhaps my favorite author of all time, and I myself deal with mental health issues, so this topic is very close to my heart. Let’s explore. Major TW for suicide ahead. Who Was Sylvia?           In order to understand why this phenomena …

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 …
