The only thing about them that fascinates me is why people believe them.
The same response + the reason of were living in the universe.
I'm a complete skeptic as far as the paranormal, but solving them, that's an idea I think would be fun.
Werewolves, and Vampires... Seems like back in the day, all kinds of people claimed contact with them, or were victims of them. Now? None. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Nothing...
Did they all die off? Now it's all UFO abductions, and aliens... Hmmm...
Could all the above be total B.S.? I suspect the answer is yes. The only real question is,"why did people believe this nonsense to begin with"?
The Bridgewater Triangle.
Inside the Bridgewater Triangle
A lot of what has happened within the Fall River/Freetown State Forest is NOT in any way paranormal. It's a dumping ground for stuff like safes stolen from businesses and ripped open. For druggies to shoot up and maim/kill each other. In my younger days I frequented "The Ledge" - rarely after dark. These days many of the fire roads have been allowed to deteriorate to the point where going in there in anything other than a big-tired 4WD vehicle is pretty much impossible. Even the paved roads (Copicut Rd., Bell Rock Rd.) have become near impassible. I was through there last October in a mid-sized car and spent nearly 2 hours navigating less than 3 miles of the paved roads mostly dodging craters cleverly disguised as potholes.
The willful ignorance of the left.
Specifically as it pertains to the left's ability to deny / dehumanize rights and personhood to children in the womb 0 even as they demand rights and protections for fish, whales, spotted owls and even trees.
Did you get lost here in USMB? Take the political crap to the political forums please.
Not lost at all and I wasn't even being (intentionally) political.
I gave my most honest answer to the op. The first one that came to mind.
"What paranormal mystery fascinates you?
And that you wish you could solve?"
Paranormal is a name given to things that can not be explained by science.
In my opinion, everything can (eventually) be explained by science. Even if science doesn't have the ability to do so, yet. So, I would use "paranormal" as only a temporary descriptor.
That said, from what I can tell, scientists have not yet been able to fully understand how magnets and magnetism actually works, why it works, etc.
This is remarkable given we all use magnets in hundreds of ways every day of our lives.
I would really like to understand how magnets work.
