How about the Piri Reis map?

Quote

The Piri Reis Map is a famous pre-modern world map created by 16th century Ottoman-Turkish admiral and cartographer Piri Reis. The map shows part of the western coasts of Europe and North Africa with reasonable accuracy, and the coast of Brazil is also easily recognizable. Various Atlantic islands including the Azores and Canary Islands are depicted, as is the mythical island of Antillia. The map is noteworthy for its depiction of a southern landmass that some controversially claim is evidence for early awareness of the existence of Antarctica. Some scholars claim this and other maps support a theory of global exploration by a pre-classical undiscovered civilization.

Or the Alaskan Triangle?

Quote

The Alaskan Triangle, a Devil′s Graveyard of lost ships, airplanes and missing people. Since 1988, some 16,000 people have vanished in the Alaska Triangle. Annually, 4 out of every 1,000 Alaskans disappear without a trace. Alaska is thick with magnetic anomalies which can vary compass readings as much as 30 degrees.
On the show, Dan Shaw, an expert on energy vortexes, demonstrates how a simple device known as a ′Golden Vortex′ with just three aligned magnets can alter perception. Shaw says that people react differently when they encounter a vortex, either psychically or even physically.  The team also learns more about energy vortexes and the twelve Devil′s Graveyards, triangular regions where ships and planes are frequently lost. Bill Romberg, an expert in Alaskan search and rescue describes how he has heard a strange buzzing sound at times.
In 1972, one of the more famous disappearances involved two members of the U.S. Congress along with an aide, and the pilot,  were flying in a Cessna 310 from Anchorage to Juneau. Not long after take-off, all contact with the plane ceased. A massive air-sea search and rescue mission was launched. Some 400 aircraft, dozens of boats, including 12 Coast Guard ships, and even an Air Force SR-71 searched for the missing plane and men. After 39 days, the effort was called off. To this day, nobody knows what really happened?

The Piri Reis map is no such mystery:

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

How did they do it?

One of the upper stones is shaped like a parallelogram.  

Was this really bashed into shape like this or was the stone moulded somehow?

That's probably because there is an endless variety of 'reality' to record and people love other people's realities.
COPS, the Real World, Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares, the lives of wealthy unknown people, the lives of wealthy known people, save my bar, sell my house, eat that bug, save my life, chop those trees, survive this, escape that, shoot here, work there, exploit trailer park kid, pawn this, repo that, mine for gold, drill for oil, hillbilly hand fishing, drive on ice, drive on land, fix my lawn, gimme a kitchen, swap my wife, humiliate me, sell your soul for money and many more now and to come.

That's a good point. There might be more supply than demand, though. It sounds like many people are sick and tired of reality shows. Viewers miss scripted programs. It's also a shame when cable channels remove appropriate shows and replace them with reality series. For instance, why is "Honey Boo Boo" on The Learning Channel!? A&E and THC do the same thing with all of these buy/sell/find/pawn/truck shows that take the place of relevant programming. MTV programmers were the first ones to make these kinds of decisions. They played videos when I was a kid. :lol: I have to admit that I loved "America's Most Wanted" and "Cops", and I watched them for years. They started before the reality plague, though. They could break the trend by filming my boring life.

There is one reality with billions of versions.

Well, gosh. There's already a thread about that. I myself discovered what is clearly an artificial mountain there. The Man tries to keep it hidden, though.

It also would take 42 X 10 ^ 806,999 monkeys and typewriters to get War and Peace in one draft.

But significantly fewer monkeys to churn out the average paperback one can buy in a grocery store today.
