In our daily lives dictated by a never-ending and dull cycle of work or studies, we never really pay much attention to the large and mysterious world around us. There have been many a mystery that no one has been able to crack yet, and if you want to step out of your monotonous routine, then we’ve got a treat for you because these events and facts are going to leave you scratching your head in wonder.
The Malaysian Flight: MH370
Perhaps the most vexing and worrisome mystery that we’ve had in recent years is the plane that disappeared without a trace. Hundreds of people were aboard the large plane — 227 passengers to be exact — and they have never been seen again. No one on earth has been able to provide an answer to exactly what happened to it. From the looks of things, the entire plane was teleported somewhere no one would ever think of looking. GPS tracking hasn’t helped at all, and the plane’s radio stopped working the moment it disappeared. To date, no wreckage has been found, even though multiple countries from all over the world have done all they could in order to locate it.
Even a black-box from the plane would have been enough to connect the dots as to what caused this tragedy. The ominous nature of this event has led to all sorts of conspiracy theories on why the plane (or its wreckage) hasn’t been found yet, and some people even think that this plane was put under the rug by some very powerful people; however, that’s just a conspiracy theory without evidence to back it up. Regardless, MH370 is a vexing mystery that has eluded us even though thousands of people struggled to find the passengers or plane wreckage for years.
The Mysterious Booms In The Air
Although these haven’t really caused any real damage like the MH370 tragedy, they have no explanation whatsoever. You might not have heard of this, but all around the world, people have been reporting extremely loud sounds that originate from the sky. There are pieces of footage showing explosions in the sky which seem to cause the sounds, but nothing official has been reported so far. The sounds are said to be so loud that they rattle windows, trigger car alarms to go off, and make houses shake. If this had happened once or twice, it might have been something to ignore and to chalk up as a random incident that doesn’t warrant exploration. However, there have been hundreds of these booms all over America and in other countries as well! Even police officers have talked about them, saying they have no idea what the source of the sound is, which makes those explosions all the more elusive. With that said, it makes us all the more curious as to what they could be. From secret weapon programs to aliens, people have all sorts of theories, but we’re going to have to wait for proper evidence to arrive before we can jump to conclusions. Until then, these booms show no signs of stopping or slowing down, and people seem to be showing an increasing interest in what they are.
The Devil’s Pass Incident
In 1959, a group of nine young adults went hiking into the mountain ranges of Russia. They chose one of the most ominous places to go — Mount Otorten. The place where they chose to camp at night was called Kholat Syakhl, which roughly translates to “Dead Mountain” or “Mountain of Death”. This alone would be enough of a reason for most people to turn away, but these people made the unfortunate decision to press on. When they went missing, authorities came looking for them and stumbled upon a horrifying and perplexing sight. The hikers looked like something had scared them into ripping their way out of the side of their tents and running without much concern for anything else, including the fact that it was a painfully cold night in Russia and they weren’t clothed. Their bodies were found with traces of radiation and physical trauma, and forensic scientists weren’t able to determine their cause of death. To this day, no new answers have been presented to explain what horrendous things might have happened during that night.
It’s pretty frightening to think about these incidents, but we can take comfort in the fact that we’re extremely unlikely to come across any such thing.
