Weird Wikipedia articles

Tuesday, 13 April 2010

My previous Wikipedia post was about interesting articles and categories in general.

My favourite creepy incident is what happened at Dyatlov Pass in 1959:

The lack of eyewitnesses and subsequent investigations into the hikers’ deaths have inspired much speculation. Investigators at the time determined that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot in heavy snow. Though the corpses showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue.

This post will list all the weird and creepy articles on everyone’s favourite encyclopaedia.
