Labyrinths, Skyscrapers and Sewers

I found this fun science website when searching for the name for the half-bull, half-man creature who roamed the Minoan labyrinth in ancient times. Why did I need to know the Minotaur's name? Long story, bloated metaphor. Anyway, the Museum of Unnatural Mystery is a treasure for people who are captivated by weird science, like me.

Who wouldn't want to know how Jules Verne predicted submarines and skyscrapers long before the scientists of his time or the truth about alligators roaming the sewers of New York City? From geology to UFOs to ghost ships, this site tackles them all. Great inspiration for paranormal stories or those of us who love weird science.
