Few clues add to the mystery of a found wedding ring

Albert H and Sara E.

This wedding band was found in a Brooklyn sanitation garage sink. The inscription inside reads “Albert H and Sara E. Sept 2nd 1913”. Please share with all of your contacts. It appears the couple have been deceased for some time, but many are still looking relatives. It would be cool to find their children or grandchildren. Let’s see what we can do.  Here is a discussion taking place on the ancestry group page.

Video: Artifact in museum moving on its own

Eygptian statuette
This time-lapsed footage captured on surveillance camera shows a 4,000-year-old ancient Egyptian relic of Neb-Senu gradually spinning in its display case over the course of a week.

For the last eight decades, the statue remained stationary until caretaker Campbell Price noticed a shift in its placement that would return each day after being adjusted.

While Price speculates the artifact’s movement might be explained by the disturbance of an “ancient spirit,” physicist Brian Cox believes that the rotation may have been caused by a process know as “differential friction,” in which subtle vibrations can make an object turn on its axis.

I think the statuette being inhabited by the soul of a centuries dead Egyptian mummy is more logical conclusion. 🙂

Reddit Users Decipher Mystery Code – Things get weird

THERE’S PLENTY MORE MONEY TO MAKE FIGURE THIS OUT AND PREPARE TO MEET JULY 19 FIFTY SIXTH AND SIXTH HOT DOG STAND OUTSIDE RUE57 CAFE ASK FOR MISTER INPUT.

After being handed a $50 bill along with this note by a “raggedy dressed man” on a train, Redditor delverofsecrets turned to Reddit to decode the note, which was quickly identified as using a Bifid Cipher. The translated message reads:

THERE’S PLENTY MORE MONEY TO MAKE FIGURE THIS OUT AND PREPARE TO MEET JULY 19 FIFTY SIXTH AND SIXTH HOT DOG STAND OUTSIDE RUE57 CAFE ASK FOR MISTER INPUT.

After discovering the fact that the note had been spread around the Reddit community, “Mister Input” sent a message to delverofsecrets under the name hoboman (which was apparently sent from a US Department of Defense Network IP address), stating the following:

You may not believe me, but I will remind you of your personalized backpack [personal information redacted] You have recruited the help of friends, the offer is now on the table for them too. I cannot have strangers inquire about me, rather we will use a proxy. Here is the next step: DWY JLRR QUBPKSJ IL NDLM OQD OUCEQMW KGXI CSH RFRM XL WEZUXKJ. YME QLPRBAZ OQD TPVJG HPM UK CQJS H. PPVD BFSRST NJYT KR. BFPU EWP BMHY BTK WL VGB FXK R PXFE DTC GPBQL QWHKI JFA QRPE EJW EYC KLJ HCB JHGN.

This coded part of the message, which was also translated by the community, reads:

YOU HAVE MANAGED TO FIND THE MESSAGE WITH THE HELP OF FRIENDS. YOU CHANGED THE RULES NOW SO WILL I. JULY TWELVE FOUR PM. FIND THE BLUE JAY AT SIX AND A HALF AND FIFTY SIXTH AND TELL HIM YOU ARE THE LAST.

In an interesting twist, a contributing Redditor discovered that a Google Street View snapshot of that location shows a UPS delivery man with what appears to be a blue jay tattoo on his arm.

The debate rages on in regards to whether or not this is some clever viral marketing scheme for The Dark Knight Rises (whose release date coincides with the date in the original message), or BASE Entertainment’s upcoming Spy exhibit. Regardless, the story is an interesting one and continues to develop at the original post.

UPDATE: Original poster has his life threatened.

Mysterious Noises Rattle Wisconsin

The city of Clintonville, WI has experienced unexplained booming and rattling noises the last two nights. Crews have checked for possible gas or water leaks and found nothing.

The sounds — variously described as rattling pipes, clanging metal, thunder or firecrackers — have continued on and off since early Sunday night in just one part of the small town of 4,600, located about 180 miles northeast of Madison.

The sounds were loud enough Monday morning that a CNN journalist could hear them during a cell phone interview with city officials.

Watch the news story here.
