10 News Stories That Raise Endless Unanswered Questions
These spiders also often make their homes outside of cars, like in the trees and shrubs of the Americas, but when they do pick a car to settle down in, it’s a 2009 2010 Mazda6. The problem was so prevalent that Mazda had to recall 65,000 cars to decolonize them.
Not only were the spiders gross, but they were also blocking the fuel lines with their webs, potentially causing fuel leaks or even engine fires.
Nobody’s sure why they were choosing specifically the four cylinder Mazda6 of those specific years, especially since the six cylinder version offers considerably more power. An entomologist suggested that an infested factory somewhere up the production line was probably to blame. Of course, Mazda would have presumably looked into such a straightforward explanation, since it would be pretty easy to fix and far less of a PR nightmare than simply implying that, “Yeah, our $13,000 car has spiders.” Which is basically what they’re saying. According to Mazda spokesman Jeremy Barnes, “We really don’t know how they’re getting in. This is a really strange case, right up there with the more unusual ones, this one takes the cake.” So either Mazda has a PR department that doesn’t know what those letters stand for, or spiders just have idiosyncratic taste in cars. In contrast, the much more badass wolf spider drives an STI.
4. Unclaimed Puddle of Blood Found in Elementary School PlayhouseStudents at Sydney’s Riverwood Primary School returned from a summer break to homework, drudgery and 1.5 liters of unexplained blood in the school playhouse. This wasn’t a scrape or nosebleed. For an adult male, 1.5 liters is about 30 percent of total blood volume, which would put them into class III hemorrhagic shock and require a transfusion.
Significantly more than just a flesh wound.
The discovery raised a host of questions, like how someone that badly injured got in and out of the locked school, which was surrounded by a 6 foot fence, without leaving swarovski a blood trail or any other traces.
Probably the biggest question was exactly whose blood it was. DNA tests so far only tell us that it belonged to a human male and the DNA doesn’t match any criminals in the database. The investigative team, known as Strike Force Laundry for some reason, also thinks it was a child because, you know, it’s a pretty tiny house.

Only the vast majority of adults could fit in a building that size.
Since losing 1.5 liters of blood would put an adult male in shock, prospects looked even more horrifying if it was a child’s blood.
That said, children don’t usually get murdered without anyone noticing. If this was a murder, the victim has been gone since about January 13, and to this point, not one person has come forward and said, “You know, come to think of it, I haven’t seen Tommy for a while.”
“Jim’s been wearing the same bag and overalls for months now. Should we call CPS?”
Considering how the public spazzes out every time the phrase “child murder” hits the news, it’s puzzling why they would go straight to tossing that phrase around with no evidence other than the playhouse being small. But who are we to question Strike Force Laundry?
3. Orfield Laboratories’ Quiet Room Is Quiet . Too Quiet

What would happen if you were in a perfectly sound absorbent room? This sounds like a thought exercise that amateur philosophers or potheads would spend way too many words speculating about. Fortunately, you can tell them to shut up, because we can find out, because such a room exists . and what happens is it drives people crazy.

And in 2 percent of cases, it steals their limbs and turns their flesh to plastic.
built this room for some very practical reasons, like doing acoustical product testing on engines and hearing aids, but nobody cares about that. The important thing is how long a person can stay in there, like on a dare or something, and nobody’s been able to last more than 45 minutes.
Expected it to have more tentacles, didn’t you?
Some people freak out, some people even hallucinate. According to lab founder Steven Orfield, even walking becomes impossible after a while, and you have to sit down, because you rely on echoes and sounds to orient you when you walk.
In describ swarovski ing the phenomenon, people who have been in the room talk about hearing the sounds of their own heart, lungs, digestion and even blood running through their blood vessels. While that all does sound pretty freaky, it doesn’t seem like it would be hallucination inducing or run out of the room freaky.
“OH GOD I CAN HEAR MY OWN LUNGS!”
What is it about losing echoes that weirds humans out so much? Obviously, both people born deaf and recently deafened people don’t freak out and run into walls, so it’s not total silence itself that does the trick. It’s when you take away just the echoes and surrounding sounds and leave a person alone with nothing but their own sound. Maybe it’s like putting your subconscious into solitary. Or hey, maybe there are evil spirits in the room attacking people. Who knows.
2. Thieves Steal 30 Worthless Concrete Parking Stops
A lot of us probably don’t know offhand what “parking stops” are, since they are worthless and beneath notice, but they’re those trapezoidal concre swarovski te things put at the front of parking spaces that stop your car from rolling forward or something, since apparently that’s a huge problem in parking lots.
