Here’s a Site for Fans of the Weird

I was trolling through Google for new research sites a few minutes ago when I found this blog. It’s got a lot of fascinating little tidbits about such things as 13,000-year-old pottery from Japan, 20,000-year-old oil lamps and other fascinating artifacts. This blog is a potential gold mine for collectors of information about enigmatic places and ancient artifacts. Visit this site. You’ll be glad you did.

This story isn’t quite unbelievable, but it was memorable, to say the least. Coincidences happen after all. If you’d like to find out what can happen to a fleeting thought, read the story here
