Todd hid dog toenail clippers in the Mystery Box today – congratulations to Lorena of Mount Liberty who wins the $5 certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley.
There used to be a popular TV show called “Unsolved Mysteries” and when I was a kid, another one called “In Search Of.” I loved watching those shows and thinking about solving those mysteries…
Today Todd shared some stories of some of the more recent mysteries that are still confusing the experts. The first deals with an unexplained tremor. Read more here from Reader’s Digest:
On November 11, 2018, low-intensity seismic waves were detected around the world, from Africa to Chile to New Zealand to Canada to Hawaii, according to National Geographic. No one knows what caused the waves, which were the type that would normally be observed at the tail end of a significant earthquake. The theories so far: Was it a meteor strike? A submarine volcano eruption? An ancient sea monster rising from the deep? The investigation continues. Here are more of the biggest unsolved mysteries about Planet Earth.
On August 20, a leading Dutch cybersecurity expert, Arjen Kamphuis, checked out of his hotel in Norway, telling friends he was flying back to Amsterdam. He was never seen again. In September, his ID card was pulled from nearby Arctic waters. Yet Kamphuis’s phones had been turned on more than 1,000 miles away in a small northern Norwegian town on August 30. Because Kamphius was an outspoken advocate for online privacy, some speculate he was assassinated. Others believe he’s become a spy.
Thanks for listening!
