The Dyatlov Pass incident

1 The Depths Of Wikipedia Are Endless…

I’m sure everyone’s heard of this Russian group of hikers that were found dead and undressed in the snow, miles from their tent. Between government conspiracies and missing journals, no one know’s what happened.

The latest theories are pretty wild, though.


List of Micronations

2 The Depths Of Wikipedia Are Endless…

Let’s start off with something a little off-kilter; micronations. This is when self-proclaimed entities declare themselves to be sovereign nations, but aren’t officially recognized.

Like Sealand, for example .

Still safer than driving though.


List of premature obituaries

7 The Depths Of Wikipedia Are Endless…

This is a creepy one. Sometimes, an obituary is written in anticipation of a death, as a hoax, due to misidentification or a misunderstanding. In any case, it’s fascinating and creepy to be able to read what people’ll think of you after death, but while you’re still alive.

This happened to Pope John Paul II on 3 separate occasions, for example .

Evolutionary Anachronism

10 The Depths Of Wikipedia Are Endless…

This is when a living species that has co-evolved with another species, only to have that species go extinct. Now, without the second species, it invests a lot of energy, with no apparent benefit.

A prime example is avocados. Such a large seed, and no natural way to disperse those seeds by the animals that eat it. It’s just too big.

Language deprivation

11 The Depths Of Wikipedia Are Endless…

This is when children are deliberately not taught how to speak or communicate. It can happen naturally, with deaf individuals and feral children, but it’s also been done on purpose. Known as “The Forbidden Experiment,” the earliest experiment was done by a Scottish king who placed babies on an island with a mute nanny to see if they’d develop their own language.

They didn’t .


Feral Children

12 The Depths Of Wikipedia Are Endless…
