If you came across this message embedded into the asphalt what would you think? Is is some kind of religious fervor? Maybe some kind of science fiction viral media campaign? The truth is that we may never know but that doesn’t mean we cant get close to the truth. Remember when you’re sightseeing looking down can be just as interesting as looking up.

062-Tesla?

Play

Nikola Tesla was a Serbian born inventor and genius whose creations are in almost every electrical gadget we use today. Although he had an amazing mind capable of engineering feats unfathomable by lesser men, he did not have a mind for business. Consequently he passed away almost penniless, being the last of many devastating tragedies in his life. It almost caused him to largely be forgotten in history books. It would take until the internet age where his legacy has taken on a second life being universally hailed as a technological (and nerd) icon.

042-Jack the Ripper?

Play

Jack the Ripper is the first sensationalized serial killer. His reign of terror was in the Whitechapel district of London, England over several months in 1888. His victims were exclusively prostitutes who were mutilated after death. Several letters were sent to the police supposedly penned by the Ripper most discounted as hoaxes. One of the most intriguing aspects of the case is that is has never been solved. Some recent clues have been brought to light having to do with DNA found on some of the articles near one of the crime scenes.

041-Ouija?

Play

From spiritualism to demonic possession and creepy sleepovers the spirit board or talking board has a long and sorted past. Some use the Ouija to talk to angles, spirits or their own subconscious. Although the visual ascetics might change from board to board the components of yes, no, the alphabet and numbers as well as the sun and moon generally stay the same. The planchette or “little plank” is of course used to roam around the board at your fingertips giving you messages from beyond. So if you’re deciding if you should listen to this episode the Ouija points to “Yes”.
