    For me it has to be the tale of D.B cooper.

    en.wikipedia.org/wik…per

    i first come across him when i watched prison break, i found it a pretty interesting storyline. i didnt actually realise this was an actual event which took place back in the 1970's.

    he is still on the FBI's most wanted list today and for me, i personally think he didnt survive. but still a fascinating tale.

    Take it you've seen without a paddle then?

    Only knowledge of it I have is that film and prison break.

    I would like to know more about American History (mainly as there's not a lot of it X)), specifically the black rights movement, just finding time to read though

    The Holocaust. I just find it absolutely unbelievable that that type of thing could, and did, happen.

    I will quite easily spend an evening just on Wikipedia reading about things.

    I find Roman History extremely interesting lol

    I just randomly started reading stuff about the OJ simpson trial the other night because

    1. I watched an episode of keeping up with the Kardashians (lol kinda sad but Kim and Kourtney are fittt)

    2. Realised the next day that their dad was one of the lawyers in that case, so did some reading on it pretty interesting stuff.

    Hardly an historic event though lol.

    WWII stuff is pretty interesting, read up some stuff after I watched Valkyrie and Henry the 8th time is pretty cool and Romans

    Falklands and the speedy destruction and rebuilding of sarajevo



    Used to love going to Sarajevo when I was in FYR with SFOR, dodgy CD's before you could get them from the internet, and a huge American camp with popeyes.

    I would love to have the sort of mind that remembered dates and times and significant figures and so on but ... I don't .
    I think it is brilliant to see an original copy of the Magna Carta in Salisbury Cathedral..
    I am interested in all aspects of history and love visiting renaissance cities and greco-roman ruins.
    I watch the history progs on the telly and find them fascinating. The series on the TV about the History of Scotland was stunning.
    Seeing the hieroglyphics and the huge Egyptian temples on the Nile reminded me that I was stunned by the ancient Egyptians in history lessons when I was 11. I had a rubbish memory then, as well.

    Mysteries.................
    The inability of most men to look past the strength of their arsenal,
    together with,
    the inability of women to rule the world despite being blessed with the powers.

    Never been able to fathom why and probably never will.
