What are your favorite internet mysteries?

Asked by DrasticDreamer (23996points) March 9th, 2016

Mine is Cicada 3301, partially because it’s been going on for so long and there’s so much speculation about it.

Are there any other really mysterious things on the internet that you know about, that you feel like sharing with me?

Not really an internet mystery, but I have this theory, which some on the internet also share, that Baba Vanga’s predictions are made up by the internet. In reality it is very likely that she was just a blind woman who happened to be chosen for conspiracy theories. The evidence is that most of the time it was not clear when she made her predictions, and if she said that at all. No one could phrase her exact words on the long list of future predictions either. I also happened to find a site that posted a documentary in Hungarian, and she didn’t seem to believe in the things the predictions said.

^^Oh, god. That’s embarrassing.

@Espiritus_Corvus What’s embarrassing? So even someone that was (apparently) recruited for it doesn’t know what it is to this day. It’s all really interesting to me – regardless of what it is or who made it.

How, despite the current flowing against, has Fluther kept going this past year?

@DrasticDreamer Not that. It was embarrassing that I posted the same mystery as you did in your details. It was embarrassing because I’d obviously not read your details in my zeal to get CICADA out there first. Kinda dumb.

@Espiritus_Corvus Oh, okay! That’s alright, great minds think alike! Nice to know that someone else is just as intrigued as I am.

I’m perplexed. I thought I stayed up on all the high strangeness that goes on, but lately I’ve been obsessing a little too much on the Mandela Effect crapola. And don’t go there with the Jiffy / Jif Peanut butter thing. But I’ve never heard of this CICADA thingy. My Inquiring Mind wants to know, so give me the real poop, the straight skinny, the 411 on this thing.
