The Children Who Went Up In Smoke


Billboard about the Sodder children, who went missing on Christmas Eve, 1945. From

So, I was up late last night reading Reddit threads about creepy unsolved mysteries. I do this routinely, usually on nights where I need to actually wake up at a decent hour in the morning. (Sometimes I end up reading about solved crime stories or watching disturbing and disconcerting videos. Ya know, anything that makes me run to the bathroom while flicking all the lights on.) This weird routine of mine typically results in me watching Archer reruns while attempting to smother away my now paranoid and overactive imagination.

Anyway, people usually share the same mysteries — Hinterkaifeck, Tara Calico, Taman Shud, D.B. Cooper, The Original Night Stalker, etc. But, for whatever reason, I had never come across the story of the Sodder children who mysteriously disappeared on Christmas Eve over 60 years ago.… Read the rest

Perfectly accurate clocks turn out to be impossible

Clock face
Faculty of Physics University of Warsaw via EurekAlert:

Can the passage of time be measured precisely, always and everywhere? The answer will upset many watchmakers. A team of physicists from the universities of Warsaw and Nottingham have just shown that when we are dealing with very large accelerations, no clock will actually be able to show the real passage of time, known as “proper time”.

The ideal clock is merely a convenient fiction, as theorists from the University of Warsaw (UW) and University of Nottingham (UN) have shown. In a study published in the journal Classical and Quantum Gravity they demonstrate that in systems moving with enormous accelerations, building a clock that would precisely measure the passage of time is impossible for fundamental reasons.

“In both theories of relativity, special and general, it is tacitly assumed that it is always possible to construct an ideal clock – one that will accurately measure the time elapsed in the system, regardless of whether the system is at rest, moving at a uniform speed, or accelerating.

‘This Goes All the Way to the Queen’: The Puzzle Book that Drove England to Madness


Jess Zimmerman via Hazlitt:

There were more and more signs every time Ron Fletcher went to Rodborough Common. First, he found empty bottles of Haigh whiskey under a hawthorn bush—Haigh, like Haigha, the name of the March Hare in Lewis Carroll. Hare. There were more in the trash bin, along with bottles of Idris lemonade—when he took them away, they replenished themselves as if by magic. Of course, someone could be a heavy drinker of whiskey and lemonade, but everyone knows Idris is an ogre in Welsh mythology, and he plays a harp, and the trash bin was near a bench dedicated to one Fred Harper. It all connected. Ron found nothing in the hole in the tree with the blue ribbon—a blue ribbon just like the one on the Penny-Pockets Lady’s apron in the book—but on the bench he found a letter. It seemed to be a love letter from a man to another man, but that was only a front.

Missing 24-year-old found alive and well 30 years after man confessed to her murder

petra 1

Well this is bizarre.

Louise Kelly via Independent:

A 24-year-old woman who went missing from her home in 1984, sparking a 31-year-long murder mystery, has been found alive and well.

Computer science student Petra Pazsitka vanished without a trace from her home in Germany three decades ago and was officially declared dead in 1989.

Her disappearance led to an extensive investigation, with nationwide appeals, searches and video reconstructions of her last known actions.

It is understood she left her student flat in Braunschweig and went to the shop and the dentist.

Friends claimed she then boarded a bus with the intention of going to visit her parents – but never arrived at their home.

A man who had previously been convicted for the rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl in the area confessed to Petra’s murder.

However, he later retracted his confession and Petra’s body was never found.

Johnny Depp, Hunter S. Thompson and the Illuminati?

Who’s ready to get weird? Strap on your tin foil hats and let’s go exploring — Illuminati Hollyweirdness Celebrity style!


This time around the intrepid investigators at IlluminatiWatcher go down the Johnny Depp (and by extension Hunter S. Thompson) rabbit hole and bump into Damien Echols of the West Memphis Three along the way:

While many of you may think the lovable Captain Jack Sparrow from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean couldn’t POSSIBLY be into such dark forms of evil worship, I beg you to take a look at ALL of the evidence below and come to your own conclusion.

Perhaps Johnny Depp is a great guy who would never do such things and I have no idea what I’m talking about. Or maybe he falls in line with the many other closeted Hollywood occultists that pursue their own beliefs behind the scenes while the public is presented an entirely different image…

They say you can judge someone by the company they keep, so judge I will…

Regarding His Friendship with Hunter S.… Read the rest
