The Mystery of England’s Crop Circles
Bill Strubbe takes us on a colorful tour of crop circle sites around the English countryside, encountering both fellow crop circle enthusiasts and grumpy farmers along the way.
Some enterprising farmers have embraced the work of alien (or decidedly human) crop artists and post donation boxes alongside the circles. Another unexplained mystery rises to the surface with the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster as iO9 tells of the The novella that predicted the wreck of the Titanic.
While mere coincidence and the law of averages can easily explain some similarities, the plot of the 1898 story Futility is so eerily similar to the details of Titanic’s sinking that it is impossible to dismiss as such.
Both had too few lifeboats and both hit icebergs and the names are nearly identical-Titan and Titanic. However, as far as we know the demise of the Titanic had very little to do with angering a sea witch as the Titan does in the book.
