It really is a mystery. We'd have a hard time doing this with today's machinery let alone straight up man power. The amount of slaves used must have been incredible sight to see.

Today there is a new thread asking if a certain GM part number Tender will work on a Corvette -- if he had done the search on Google it would have shown it with a Corvette Logo on the Cetek Tender and works for GM vehicles. -- Duh! such a mystery as to why every month or week the same question is asked. Friggen Mystery Eh?

Read Karl K.

Also see the interview of the men that built the balloon and verified that it crashed outside of Roswell, N.M. Why the military wanted this fact covered up is the deeper issue. In fact air samples taken by a military crew in a B17 did verify that Russia exploded its first A bomb. The facts cannot justify many books and TV shows falsely claiming a crash of a UFO. The U.S. government is extremely adept at not keeping anything a secret!!!

Never found the guy or his remains and he jumped in 1971.
If you jump out of a Boeing 727 in the winter over a heavy wooded area and at night after choosing a sport parachute and not wearing warm clothing and wearing street shoes, THEN it should not be a mystery that you likely landed with a tree branch jammed up your anus and if you didn't you couldn't withstand the high landing speed of a sport parachute AND not wearing warm clothing and with street shoes that will not allow you any traction in the woods, part of your belt, and wallet, and pieces of the money having identifying serial numbers will be found later and your remains will only be identified in wild animal scat. Further proof is more than one individual claiming to be D. B. Cooper. Mr. Cooper died in those woods, the known facts offer the best proof of what happened to him.

Nearly 40 years have transpired since then, giving plenty of time for further degradation of the body, clothing, and additional bills.
I agree. The money discovered in 1980 (only 9 years after the jump) was badly decomposed to the point of being unusable. It is now 39 years later than 1980 and 49 years after the jump. If there is anything left of DB Cooper, it would be limited to a few teeth a belt buckle, and perhaps a wristwatch or ring.

The story of Rudolph Hess.

Did the third in command of the National Socialist Party really act alone when he stole and aircraft, flew to Scotland and tried to negotiate peace? Or was he actually an emissary of high ranking government officials (including Hitler), who recognized that Krup and other industrialists were making a huge profit and had set them all up to take blame for any and all related to WW2?

If he was a lone wolf, why was he so totally kept from any visitors, held alone in one wing of Spaundu Prison and allowed only 4 sheets of paper for letters a month? Even more, why did his eventual autopsy mention that scars of bullet wounds he had sustained in in WW 1 were not evident on his body? Was it even Hess that served the time and was isolated from the entire world, or a double to cover a global elite organization? You know, sort of like the one headed by Soros today....

I have always wondered why when you take carbon atom and surround by four others in the form of a tetrahedron it forms a very hard sometime perfectly clear allotrope

I think space ends here:

I have heard that Heaven has a fence, a gate, and a gatekeeper to prevent undesirables from entering. I have also heard that Hell has an open immigration policy.

Coincidence? I think not.

Bob Denver and Dawn Wells were very good friends. It was Bob Denver that insisted that they change the theme song to include the Professor and Mary-Ann, instead of the old song where they just said ,"And the rest". And The rest? There was only two more of them!
Dawn Wells opted for residuals instead of a regular paycheck like the others, and it turned out to be a fortune compared to what the others received.
Another reason I would have liked to that!
