So the BBC news website had this article.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4600379.stm

It has a list of mysteries yet unsolved. Apparently the emergence of the real "deep throat" led to this musing. Anyways i picked out my favorite mysteries on the list.


This one i love just cause i am a geek.
WHERE IS LORD LUCAN?

The 7th Earl of Lucan vanished in November 1974, a day after the murdered body of his children's nanny, Sandra Rivett, was found at his London home.
Over the years numerous people have claimed sightings of the aristocrat, whose body has never been found.
The investigation reopened last year, with detectives examining existing police evidence and using new DNA techniques to try to solve the case.

This one is just kind of cool to me. The notion of a magic trick shrouded in mystery is neat.
THE FLOATING LIGHT BULB

American magician Harry Blackstone Jr is thought of as one of the greatest ever.
His 1977 version of the Floating Light Bulb, first performed by his father, is regarded by many magicians as perhaps the best illusion ever performed.
The lit bulb appeared to defy gravity by levitating above the audience.
There are modern versions of the trick, complete with instructions, but perhaps only Blackstone's widow Gay, who was also his assistant, knows exactly how he did it.
