We are finally back to live status after a far-too-long hiatus. At this point, most new material is being added to the Critical Condition Blog , so please be sure to navigate to that part of the site. There you'll find articles on everything from "Land Battleships" to Premature Burial and the dawn of Standard Time. I encourage interested users to register and discuss topics of interest, or to suggest new areas for research!
For those following the Oak Island saga, very little of note has been happening. At last report, the "Michigan Group" were still attempting to get a Treasure Trove License in order to continue digging. I've heard no new reports as of late, and presume there's nothing to report. If you hear of any news, send it here along with any relevant links.
I also encourage interested parties to visit Paul Wroclawski's excellent Oak Island Theories site, where you can find links to many primary documents Paul has uncovered in Nova Scotian archives over the years. Unsurprisingly, most evidence points to the Money Pit being a hoax concocted by local landowners to cover up smuggling activities on the island.
The only recent OI activity we've conducted was a presentation to the Cape Ann Skeptics group in July 2012, which detailed the history of the legend and the fallacies or inconsistencies it contains. The audio quality is terrible due to large amounts of background noise, but a video of the presentation is on YouTube if anyone is interested in viewing it.
