you know that moment when you discover a new obsession and google the hell out of it? The Oak Island Mystery (Nova Scotia) is it. dude this is the craziest thing i have ever heard of and the more i google the crazier it gets.
iN 1795, an 18 year old man observed lights coming from the uninhabited island, and when he investigated, he discovered a circular depression in a clearing, and a tackle block hanging from a branch as if marking a place to dig. With the help of friends, the young man excavated thirty feet, discovering layers of “man made debris" every ten feet.
Since then, a legend has grown around the “money pit" and the hidden treasure that is said to be buried at the bottom. Several expeditions have attempted to recover the treasure over the past two hundred years, digging as far as 180 feet, but not reached the bottom or discovered what treasure may be waiting for them at the bottom.
