i just read this neat article in rolling stone (issue 940, january 22, 2004) about this monstrous 200-year treasure hunt on this island in nova scotia. there are all these intricate booby traps and secret markings all over the island. people theorize that the treasure maybe be pirate or spanish gold, the holy fucking grail or proof that francis bacon wrote shakespeare's plays!
i'm tempted to reserach more about it, but apparently a lot of people get obsessed with this place, losing their fortunes, minds and even lives.
still, cool stuff.
i'm TL to look for good websites about the place. a cursory glance showed this
to be the best looking. there are plenty more out there, with great paint illustrations to go with them. =)
so, if you're bored, look into it.
