I would say you need to know enough you do understand it. One word in an ancient text translated wrong can make a difference in the message.

It goes over the top. Anything else is unsanitary and wrong.

And the egg came first because all chickens, by definition come from eggs.

There's no mystery here.

The dinosaur came before the chicken, or the egg. ;)

Well, okay, the dinosaur egg came before the chicken... etcetra, etcetra. :)

They missed the biggest real mystery of all, the Nazca lines in Peru. While creating a code or a bunch of gibberish is not all that hard, the Nazca lines are a true mystery. Even if you buy into the idea that the Inca could see some of the drawings from foothills or fly in hot air balloons or alien spacecraft, why bother?

Awesome page, cheers.

That Taman Shud case is also very interesting. From what I've read he was most likely a spy. No records of him anywhere in Australia, even all flight/cruise records show that every person that visited Australia had also left or permanently moved here.

The forensic team say that he was most likely poisoned, either by himself or someone else and that the poison would have been hard to come by.

There was also a top secret missile launch and intelligence gathering site near Adelaide that apparently had a security breach.

From wiki:

The poem's subject led police to theorise that the man had committed suicide by poison, although there was no other evidence to back the theory.[44] The book was missing the words "Tamam Shud" on the last page, which had a blank reverse, and microscopic tests indicated that the piece of paper was from the page torn from the book.[45] "Tamam Shud" (meaning "the end") comprises the last line of text in the book.

In the back of the book were faint pencil markings of five lines of capital letters with the second line struck out. The strike out is now considered significant with its similarity to the fourth line possibly indicating a mistake and thus, possible proof the letters are code:

OK so what would you consider the 10 greatest then? I know about most of the ones used in the article, and some are genuinely inexplicable, others are cyphers of a great difficulty.

I dont about about a womans butt being cold.... but Ive never met a woman yet who doesn't have icy cold feet. Just snuggling up nice and warm and you happen to touch your leg or foot, against her feet! Cold! Icy cold. Like touching a corpse :w00t:
