5 mysterious stories and simple explanations
Our world is full of mystery and the unknown, and all the mysterious charms and tortures our minds. But sometimes we ourselves bestow simple phenomena and events mysterious halo. Just because it is so interesting.
1. The Dyatlov Pass Incident
In January 1959, 9 young tourists - students and graduates of the Ural Polytechnic Institute, we went hiking in the north of the Sverdlovsk region. Led campaign fifth-year student Igor Dyatlov. The ultimate goal of this campaign was a mountain Otorten (translated from the Mansi language means "do not go there"), which the tourists had to win and come back. However, tourists have not returned.
February 26 tent tourists cut from the inside, it was found on the slopes of Mount cholate-Sjahl slope ( "Mountain of the Dead"). Judging by the contents of the tent, it was suddenly abandoned by all tourists - there are things, shoes, money and leisure products have been found. Later the bodies were found all 9 participants of the tour.
It turned out that some of them died from hypothermia, while others - from the numerous injuries. Most of the bodies were found badly dressed and without shoes. In addition, one of the tourists was missing language and some clothing items containing radioactive substances. The criminal case was closed with the conclusion that the cause of death of tourists has become a "force of nature, to overcome which they were not able to."
In recent years, this story has become Internet sensation. There was a lot of versions, with many home-grown "researchers" are inclined to such exotic causes of death "dyatlovtsev" as aliens, ghosts and even a snow man.
A simple explanation:
7 mysterious factors in this story excite the minds of people: lack of language from one of the corpses, strange orange tinge to the skin from the corpses, cut inside the tent, the lack of warm clothing of the deceased, injured, have been found in only three tourists and, of course, traces of radioactivity on the clothes of the dead. In addition, according to some accounts, the same night that killed the tourists, balls of fire appeared in the sky, which saw more than one person.
Recall that tourists bodies were found a few weeks after the death of (presumably, judging by found diaries "dyatlovtsy" were killed in the night of 1 to 2 February). Four bodies were found in May, after the snow began to descend. Wild animals begin to eat the corpse with the softest parts - in this case the language. Orange hue bodies could be formed from the fact that the body in the snow surrounded by long time lying in the sun.
Injuries tourists and cut the tent can be explained by the fact that the tent went avalanche. Tourists cut the tent and ran away from her, unable to put on shoes and dress. In addition, freezing people sometimes, instead of dressing, undressing - it is due to the fact that the freezing of human brain activity is disturbed. As for the radioactivity and "fireballs" in the original documents of this says nothing. It looks like it was hit upon by people who love sensation.
In general, there is no indication that a "dyatlovtsami" was anything more than an accident. Supporters of the mystical and conspiracy theories do not want to put up with it and are looking for new evidence that "dyatlovtsev" kill not "force of nature", but something else, much more interesting.
2. The disappearance of the Roanoke colony
colony of Roanoke was either the first permanent settlement in North America or well thought unkind jokes. Sir Walter Raleigh, at whose expense was founded colony, dispatched to the settlers, and left them there to fend for themselves without any food supply, most likely, simply to see whether or not they survive.
However, there was something nobody expected - a colony simply vanished. The second group of settlers found only a skeleton and a mysterious word "Croatan" carved in a tree.
What happened to the colony? Maybe settlers stole the aliens or other mysterious creatures?
A simple explanation:
UFOs or ghosts here at anything. Simply abandoned to their fate guys acquainted with the natives of the tribe, "Croatan", which is much better settlers knew how to get food and how to do to live on this island. So they took a very reasonable decision - to quit the colony and join kroatoantsam.
3. Mysterious creatures in Hopkinsville
In 1955, the Sutton family dined on the veranda of his house, along with a family friend, Billy Ray Taylor. Billy moved to drink water from the well ... This is where it started, and mysterious events being talked about so far. Billy ran back onto the porch, shouting that the sky blazing strange lights, and Sutton suggested to look at this miracle. Sutton ran into the yard, but instead of the heavenly lights they saw in the yard of the strange glowing creatures with a large head, large ears, glowing eyes and long arms. Seeing humanoid Sutton tried to kill them with a gun, but the creature rather than perish, simply disappeared in the darkness.
A simple explanation:
Sutton is not only described the creatures, but also to paint them. It must be said that the heads of these creatures are surprisingly reminiscent of the usual night owls head. And when you consider that Sutton that evening quite drunk and afraid, you can imagine that drew their imagination.
4. Crazy gasman
In the early 30-ies of the inhabitants of the two American towns were subjected to strange attacks: a man nicknamed subsequently "insane gas fitter" poisoned the homes of people with poison gas by spraying it through the window, sometimes at the same time even the roadblocks to victims are not able to get out of a poisoned room. The victims of these attacks, complained of weakness and pain in the throat. These events have sown a real panic among the population.
Of course, it began a formal investigation of these events. Some of the victims claimed that they were able to see the "gas maniac", but they described "mad gasman" in very different ways. Someone said that it was a man, someone - a woman, someone maniac seemed thin, someone full of .... In general, if you collect all descriptions together, it is unlikely that on the ground there is a man who would not have fallen at least under one of these descriptions. "Mad gasman" never caught, but the story has acquired a huge number of rumors and versions, sometimes completely implausible.
A simple explanation:
Two weeks after the initiation of the investigation, Thomas Wright, a member of the Commission for Health, said: "There is no doubt that the" gas maniac "actually exists, and that he actually carried out a series of attacks. However, many of the statements about the attacks are nothing more than a manifestation of mass hysteria. The whole city is sick hysteria ". But the local police chief said that no gas maniac does not exist. Just some people heard a noise outside the window, opened the window, felt a strange smell, and dismissed rumors of gas maniac. It's worth noting that in the city there are many companies that pollute the air.
However, these statements do not reassure people. Reports of gas attacks kept coming, however, none of them has not been confirmed.
Most likely, "the gas maniac" actually existed. Researchers say that in the end maniac identity was established, it proved to be a student of the local medical school, which is actually a couple of times sprayed gas through the windows, which led to mass hysteria. When asked why he did it, he replied that he was just crazy.
5. Starchild Skull (Star Child)
In 1930, the unusual shape of the skull was found in a disused mine. The experts found that the skull of about 900 years. Fans of all paranormal immediately declared that the skull belongs to an alien, or other mysterious creatures. This skull did not discuss just lazy, and of course, to many it seemed much more interesting to consider this part of the skull of a mysterious creature, than to look for simple explanations. However, a simple explanation does exist.
A simple explanation:
Most of the UFO for some reason believes that the aliens are like people (two eyes, mouth, nose), with minor differences (well, for example, they may have a different color or a different size of the eye). But why beings from other planets, the terms of which are not similar to the earth, should be similar to humans? However, some researchers agree that aliens do not have to be like us, so they claim that the "Star Child", whose skull was found in the mine, is the fruit of the love of the dugout and alien. Yet, researchers are not inclined to search for the mysterious and the paranormal, they say that the skull belonged to a young child aged from 3 to 5 years. Obviously, the child suffered malformations, which are the cause of the strange shape of the skull. There are many diseases that lead to deformation of the skull - why lovers of puzzles forgot about it?
