Cicada 3011

I've been following the latest round of Cicada 3011 this year, and have become a bit fascinated with the whole thing. If you aren't familiar with it, it's sort of an online scavenger hunt. It's not paranormal, but no one seems to know who runs it or what the prize is for winning, which means it falls under the 'mystery' category, and I like blogging about things that are mysterious.

Part of what makes Cicada 3011 fascinating is that it's incredibly difficult to solve. You have to have pretty extensive knowledge of computer programming, obscure literature, mathematics, Latin, steganography and a wide range of other topics to figure out the clues.

For people who have no idea what they are doing, a bit of googling will let them follow along with the progress of other people who are playing the game. It's fun and a bit addicting to see how the progress has been moving forward.

There are lots of theories about who is responsible for Cicada 3011. Some people think it's a recruiting tool for a government agency like the CIA or some sort of think tank. Others believe it's a group of hackers who are trying to develop something or accomplish some goal.

Whoever is responsible has brought a lot of intrigue into the online world. To everyone who is playing- good luck!

Are Ghosts Affected by Temperature Changes?


Right now, where I live, it’s currently 1 degrees out. The entire section of the country I live in is caught in an icy weather spurt, which got me wondering if ghosts would act differently in cold or warm weather.

I haven’t got enough experience ghost hunting to have a solid opinion on this. I’ve always avoided ghost hunting during cold temperatures, and it doesn’t get extremely hot where I live, so I’m not sure if a spirit might behave differently in extreme temperatures.

Personally, I’m more inclined to think that ghosts don’t actually feel temperature changes as many of them tend to hang out outside in the elements. They certainly aren’t hiding out just in the warmth of nice toasty houses with indoor heat and plumbing. In fact, many of them are drawn to old, empty buildings. Several of the places I’ve investigated had no heat at all, and still seemed to be a beacon for paranormal activity.


What do you think? Can ghosts feel changes in the temperature?
