as mentioned, Oak Island.

the Ark of the Covenant. taken by Egyptians? removed and melted down by Babylon? or, just maybe, still in existence in a cave (or Ethiopea)? if that reappears we will see some big hullaballoo.

Mothman. were ALL those people delusional or misinterpreting owls?

on a lighter note; Worcestershire Sauce. was it really inspired by something from India? or even a long-hidden formula for Roman liquamem / garum?

I wonder about the Flatwoods Monster --it looks so.. Period. I wonder if the witnesses did interpret it based on their own expectations in the fear of the moment. I know in "Blue Book" it turned out to be a bird.
They had a segment on this on some cable tv series. It was a huge barn owl.:)

An alien barn owl! o_O :lol: Ha! I think it might have been, too. There was the weird oil that the witnesses got spritzed with.. Dunno. Owl makes sense.
