The Dyatlov Pass incident

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.

List of Micronations

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.

List of heresies in the Catholic Church

As a former altar boy, it's fascinating to see how pretty much every excuse was used to burn people at the stake.

Amusement park accidents

List of accidents and incidents involving commercial aircraft

Since we're not travelling for the next little while, this might be an appropriate time to read this one.

List of premature obituaries

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

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

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.

Feral Children

When kids end up living isolated from human contact and never learn about human care, behaviours or language, what happens? Nothing good.

List of lost films

This is a really fascinating list of movies that have completely disappeared, with no known prints in existence.

Lost Works

A lost work is a document, literary work or a piece of media that was produced some time in the past, with no known copies to exist. There are a lot, especially since the destruction of the Library of Alexandria.

Pretty much how it sounds, and will pretty much keep you entertained until September-is.

Radiation accidents and incidents

The history of atom-splitting is far more complicated and terrifying than just Chernobyl. This list worries me.
