    Default TA's Big List of Ridiculously Interesting Things

    Today, Alien Hand Syndrome

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_hand_syndrome

    The ability of the human body to freak itself out is something that will never cease to amaze me.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubbly_Creek

    Bubbly Creek, a creek that was filled with animal entrails and blood now emits large amounts of methane gas to the point that it's toxic to fish and produces a terrible odor. The government is planning to spend upwards of 2 million to try and solve the problem. I find this ridiculously interesting.

    Robert the Doll

    This would normally just strike me as an oddity, but look at it.



    The ridiculously interesting part isn't so much the strange happenings surrounding the doll but the downright obsession of the artist.

    Something Mario and God might wanna scout for next time they're in Filthidelphia. Turns out that city has the most tiles of any in America.

    Operation Northwoods

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Northwoods

    A plan proposed by the CIA to commit a false flag attack in 1962. It involved CIA jackals performing acts of terrorism in the USA to bolster public support for a war against Cuba, including highjackings and bombings followed by false evidence that would blame Cuba for the incident.

    Few things boggle the mind more than trying to comprehend what is right before us.

    Out Of Place Artifacts

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out-of-place_artifact

    Just think, they were probably made by the Einsteins of the ancient world. Aliens may be a stretch though.
