I love reading about unsolved mysteries, they fascinate me!

Here are a few of my faves ...

sommerton man

number stations - this one has noise!

the Beaumont children - imagine 3 of your children going mising

What are yours? Stonhenge, UFOs, The Kennedeys ...?

I'd forgotten all about her CWWM

Or that poor girl that got killed in Italy by the students, suppose thats not really a mystery though

One day the facts of the Dr David Kelly "suicide" will become clear - I am sure of it.

I watched a programme about the bermuda triangle recently, they managed to explain most of it, something to do with dodgy localised weather systems and an extremely strong current moving planes and boats hundreds of miles away from where they went off radar.

That number station thing is very weird. Are the numbers broadcast on the radio or something?

Hello PBM .

I did too but I was reminded of her recently when DS turned 13 and I couldn't believe it was all so long ago.

I have to get sorted for the school run but this is a brilliant thread hope I come back later to loads of links and strange stories .

Those number stations are creepy - mostly because it sounds like something from the Jackanory-from-Hell with the music and the twee woman's voice....

My iPhone headphones

I leave them neatly coiled up in my bag overnight and literally the next morning they've uncoiled themselves and snaked their weird little forms through my keys, pens and even each other forming a tangled, semi-alien structure.

Everyone else is asleep overnight in the house. The doors are all locked. No one has had access to my bag. This happens night after night after night.

Quite frankly, the obvious possibility (that they're some how sentient) is so troubling that I don't like to think about it. I'm planning to throw them in the bin but I've got this horrific image that I'll find them crawling their wiry way back up the garden path.

I know it's a long shot, but has anyone else ever had this happen to them?

stillbobbysgirl havent they been sealed for 70 years or soemthing silly?

WTDDT Yes, they are shortwave radio signals that no-one admits to sending out!

I read in Alison Weir's book "The Six wives of Henry VIII" that someone had had the theory that Anne Boleyn was Rhesus negative, and that was why she had had one child with ease but was never able to have another and kept miscarrying. I'd love to know if that was true sad

The number stations are short broadcasts on shortwave radio to pass information to spies (or so it is widely recognised). They are broadcast from all countries and have increased at lot in the last 20 years. There is lots of online info on them, but no country has ever admitted to thier existance.

OMG, cestlavie grin what a creepy image!

MortBlacksand Mon 18-Oct-10 13:49:32

Balloon slayer - you've reminded me that as a child i also had an unhealthy obsession with the Romanovs - not that i thought Anastasia survived but just the darkness of it all. i was quite a dark child....i'm normal now though grin

something weird just to me (probably)

i googled my son's name and got a picture of a boy scout who was (is) the complete double of my son. but picture was taken thirty years ago.

freaked me out so much, i've tried to contact him but no luck. i emailed the bloke whose website it was to tell him too, but after a few emails i think he just thinks i'm a bit loopy.

SoutheastAstra - It's THE STIG!

ooh yes I read about Kaspar Hauser as a child, scared me stupid!
What is the number stations thing? Or do i have to wait until tonight and see it??

ah thank you sbg

southeast, that is really spooky.

A friend of mine had a boyfriend a few years back who was terrified of me for some strange reason. This went on for a couple of years until one day he showed me a picture of his ex wife. She was absolutely my double shock I did a double take and if I didn't know better I would have said that it was me.

Johnny Gosch I was reading about this one, very strange, mistakenly clicked on some of the links to pictures, Id suggest you dont do that

was she dead?

WhatsThatDuckDoingThere Mon 18-Oct-10 13:53:35

The number station is lots of random countryside images with a woman repeating a chain of about five numbers over and over. Presumably these numbers change when a spy has to do something specific, like kill Princess Di.

Who was the MNer who could see herself in her bedroom, from the garden? Was there ever an explanation for it?

I have goosebumps now, reading all this!

WhatsThatDuckDoingThere Mon 18-Oct-10 13:55:33

She posted pics from her garden, I couldn't see anything!

Was it not PortBlack? Who is on this thread

maduggar Mon 18-Oct-10 13:56:27

Balloonslayer - I love historical mysteries too! The Princes in the tower and the man in the iron mask, would love to know who they really were.
