    Sure, sounds like fun.

    I'll even give it a start. Bermuda Triangle. Flight of Navy ac go missing? Where did they go?

    I read the book, many years ago.

      That's a great one to start this off.

      That ship was top of the line back in the day, the largest and quickest. It could haul 12,500 tons of coal at a time and was equipped with huge buckets that could load two tons of coal at a time. The ship also served during World War I, it was outfitted with 50-caliber guns and delivered medical staff and supplies to a French hospital.

          Roanoak colony, fate thereof.
          Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

              Probably because the thread for requesting a new forum topic is in here. I'm guessing if approved, it will move to the correct forum for the topic.

                The only clue to the colonists' fate was the word "Croatoan" carved into a post of the fort, and the letters "Cro" carved into a nearby tree. Before John White left the colony for England to resupply, he instructed them that, if anything happened to them, they should carve a Maltese cross on a tree to indicate their disappearance had been forced. There were no cross, only the word Croatoan.

                    There's the San Saba mine in Texas. Jim Bowie searched for it, among hundreds of others over the centuries. It is supposed to be a near-surface gold vein first discovered by the Spanish, who lost at least one expedition to the Comanche trying to exploit it.

                    And of course Oak Island, which has cost millions of dollars and several lives in a search for treasure. FDR was a major investor in the 1930s.

                      Oak island isn't an unsolved mystery.

                        Really? What's at the bottom of the hole, then?

                            Can you prove it? Nope, just your opinion.

                            So it's a mystery.

                              A lot of other people have been there, and they have proven numerous times that the stories don't hold up.

                              It's been knocked on the head as far back as 1867 but people just wont listen, or learn.... as for the purveyors who peddle the "mystery" of the place, you're their target audience.
