The Unexplained Trivia Questions

1. Since 2007, disturbing discoveries have been made along a beach in British Columbia. What has been washing up on shore that's far out of the realm of the ordinary?

From Quiz
Pass To The Unknown

Answer: severed feet

Amazingly, the human feet are found wearing running shoes. Coroners have been able to match up some of the feet that have washed up on shore in the same general vicinity. Forensic anthropologists believe that natural disasters explain the mystery. Why the coast of British Columbia? The pattern of tides and currents that occur along this Canadian province explains the proliferation of misplaced human feet.

2. The Sailing Stones: In a remote dried-up lake in the Racetrack Playa of Death Valley, California, stones seem to move across the lake by themselves. Why are these stones "sailing"?

From Quiz Unsolved Mysteries - Solved at Last?

Answer: sliding on ice that had formed underneath them

Large rocks appear to have glided along the once-lake floor with "drag marks" of their path. In 2006, scientist Ralph Lorenz found that when Death Valley temperatures drop, enough water and ice forms under the rocks to cause them to "float" or "sail" across the river. Time-lapsed video in August 2004 reportedly has confirmed the activity.

3. Disappearances have always been mysterious. This recorded one was in 1694 in Hanover, Germany, involving a Count. Who was he?

From Quiz Mysteries

Answer: Philipp Christop, Count Konigsmarck

Georg Ludwig, Crown Prince of Hanover, was married to his cousin, Sophia Dorothea. It was not a happy marriage and Sophia was never comfortable at their castle. Philipp and Sophia were childhood friends and it was not long before they became lovers. After receiving a letter from Sophia, Philipp went to see her but discovered the letter was not from her. During their meeting Philipp and Sophia planned to start a new life together and made plans to run away together the next day, but Philipp never returned for Sophia and was never seen or heard of again.

4. Who or what is Black Shuck?

From Quiz The Psychic and Paranormal World

Answer: Spectral dog

Before the Hawaiian settlers arrived the area was said to be occupied by the Menehune. Believed to be between four inches to two feet high, these creatures inhabited the island according to folklore for centuries and were at first thought to be dwarfs.

5. Why did John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan, disappear in England without a trace in 1974?

From Quiz We know they left, but where did they go?

Answer: He was suspected of murder

After a bitter divorce John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan, was suspected of murdering Sandra Rivett, the nanny of his children, and assaulting his ex-wife, Veronica Duncan. When the body was discovered Lord Lucan had fled in a borrowed car. The car was found later in East Essex but no trace of Lord Lucan was ever found.

6. In 1845 an inventor had a dream that cannibals were trying to kill him and kept thrusting spears at him. When he awoke he solved the problem of making his invention work. What invention was it?

From Quiz Perchance to Dream

Answer: sewing machine

Elias Howe was trying to invent a sewing machine. He had solved everything but how to attach thread to a needle. He had been using a needle with the hole for the thread in the middle but it wouldn't hold pieces of cloth together. In the dream, the natives were preparing to boil him alive; as he tried to get out of the big kettle they thrust their spears at him. He noticed that the spear points had holes in the ends. Thinking of the dream later, he hit upon the idea of putting the hole in the tip of the needle, rather than in the middle. And so, Mr. Howe invented the sewing machine.

7. Originally a small one room school house, what did Waverly School reopen as in 1910?

From Quiz Waverly Hills: Kentucky's Most Haunted

Answer: Sanatorium

The Waverly School was originally built by the property owner as a school for his daughter. At the turn of the century, the Jefferson County area of Kentucky was beginning to see increased reports of tuberculosis. The little schoolhouse, then known as Waverly School, was rebuilt to house TB patients. The Waverly Hills Sanatorium opened its doors for the first time on July 26, 1910.

8. The Montauk Project was alleged to have investigated many subjects from psychological warfare to time travel. In which US state is Montauk?

From Quiz Secrets and Lies

Answer: New York

According to the theorists, all sorts of wild stuff took place at Montauk AFB on Long Island. Scientists created teleporters and could travel anywhere in time and space meeting aliens along the way. The US government has always denied that Montauk AFB was anything more than a radar station, but after the base was closed and the park opened to the public, the military building remains strictly off limits.

9. Near what town is the Myrtles Plantation located?

From Quiz The Myrtles Plantation

Answer: St. Francisville, Louisiana

Located in St. Francisville, Louisiana, the Myrtles Plantation is sometimes called the most haunted place in the United States. It is an antebellum plantation that has survived the turmoil of war and time.

10. Who is commonly believed to be the first person to actively try to create a machine to record the voices of the dead?

From Quiz The ABCs of EVPs

Answer: Thomas Alva Edison

Many people believe that in the 1920s, Thomas Alva Edison was reportedly building a machine to achieve spirit communication with the dead. A few years later Edison stated he was joking about the device, and that he had not been working on any spirit communication inventions.

11. This person, who was the most famous resident of Heard County, was known as being a soothsayer and witch.

From Quiz Weird Georgia

Answer: Mayhayley Lancaster

Mayhayley is said to have put a hand on her head and a hand on her feet and given everything between her hands to the devil for the gift of prophecy. The non-fiction novel, "The Murder in Coweta County," is about the murder in which Mayhayley helped to solve with her ability. Her tombstone today is said to be cursed. People who steal it or part of it encounter bad luck, or even death. Several people who have stolen it have died in a car accident several days later.

12. The story of Atlantis began with the dialogues of "Timaeus" and "Critias", written by whom?

From Quiz Lost Continent of Atlantis

Answer: Plato

These two elements of Plato's "Dialogues" were the first accounts of the lost society of Atlantis. They made up the latter two-thirds of Plato's eighth tetralogy, "Clitophon", following the first book, "The Republic".

13. The "Curse of the Billy Goat" began in 1945 when William Sianis and his goat "Murphy" were ejected from the stadium by order of the owner of which team?

From Quiz A Curse Be Upon You

Answer: Chicago Cubs

Sianis had two tickets to the 4th game of the 1945 World Series between the Cubs and the Detroit Tigers. He decided to bring his goat with him, and they were allowed to enter Wrigley Field and sit in the box seats that they had tickets for. However, Phillip Knight Wrigley had the two ejected because of the goats "objectionable odor." Sianis was outraged by the ejection, and placed a curse upon the Cubs, that they would never play in a World Series at Wrigley again.

14. Leatherface from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" movies, Norman Bates from the "Psycho" movies and Buffalo Bill from "The Silence of the Lambs" were all loosely based on what man?

From Quiz Monsters, Maniacs, and Mysteries

Answer: Ed Gein

Ed Gein was a grave robber. He usually stole the bodies of dead women and liked to experiment with their sexual organs because his mother would not let him have any contact with women. This is where we get the "Norman Bates" model. He also wore a mask made of human skin and his furniture and his dishes and other such stuff were made from human bones. This is where we get "Leatherface". It was reported that Gein also made a woman suit from the skin of the dead women that he dug up. This is where we get the character "Buffalo Bill" from. According to the movie of his life ("Deranged"), he dug up his mother but she would not talk to him, so he figured she was unhappy and started to dig up her bridge club in an effort to lift up her spirits. When he saw no one was playing cards he surmised that they needed fresh skin so he killed and skinned a waitress. Then he tried to put her skin on his mother's. It was the killing of the waitress that led authorities to him and his activities. He also killed his best friend's fiance and tried the same thing.

15. Doctor, sometimes when I concentrate, I can move objects with my mind. What is going on with me?!

From Quiz You're the Parapsychologist

Psychokinesis or telekinesis is the ability of the mind to move objects.

16. In the autumn of 1994, a 60 year-old Dutchman by the name of Cor Stoop took a cruise on the North Sea. He became seasick during the trip and lost his false teeth overboard. How was Mr Stoop reunited with his teeth?

From Quiz Just a Coincidence?

Answer: A fisherman caught a cod with Mr Stoop's teeth inside it

After hearing on the radio that a fish had been caught with a set of false teeth inside, Mr Stoop realised what had happened and was reunited with his teeth.

17. This island supposedly sunk under the sea. The civilization was extremely advanced. Plato was the first to write about it. What island was this?

From Quiz The Greatest Mysteries

Answer: Atlantis

Theories as to where Atlantis was located range from the Atlantic Ocean to the Island of Crete.

18. What happened to the lost continent of Atlantis?

From Quiz Atlantis

Answer: It remains unknown

All of the above answers are theories, however this "legend" remains just that... a legend. It is not in our history books.

19. In 1772, in France, the Academic Francaise investigated the fall of a large rock that landed with a loud explosion in Luce. How was this hot, smoking rock explained by the Academie to the scared peasants who reported finding it?

From Quiz Strange Things That Fell From The Sky 3

Answer: The stone had been struck by lightning, tossed up, and fallen down.

The committee, who investigated the still warm rock, came to the conclusion that there was no way a rock could exist in the sky. Their theory was that lightning had struck the ground, exposed the rock, heating it up and hurling it up into the sky, and what the peasants saw was the rock coming back down. It was commonly thought in the 17th century that stones that fell from the sky were hoaxes. Actually, in all probability, it was a meteorite that put fear in the peasants of Luce, in the province of Maine.

20. Thousands of creatures fell in Sacramento, CA in August, 1870. These creatures covered the roof of the local opera house and the surrounding area. What were they?

They covered the roof of the opera house and were scurrying over the pavement in the nearby vicinity. Several hundred survived for several days in a partially dug earthern basement. This article appeared in the "Sacramento Reporter" on Aug. 6, 1870.

21. In France, during the reign of Charlemagne (ninth century AD), what fell from the sky?
