Back in the old days, people played Tic-Tac-Toe to past the time, and those who lived in the 80s-90s probably moved onto Minesweeper and Space Pinball. Well, then came Nokia phones with the ever so basic, yet extremely addictive, game called "Snake". Today, it seems as if social media has managed to combine all of those time-wasters - mainly chatting and games - into one.

Love conspiracy theories and / or unsolved mysteries? Here are a few to whet your appetite. Starting off, we have the Aluminum Wedge of Aiud, which is basically a wedge-shaped object found two kilometers east of Aiud, Romania, on the banks of the Mures River in 1974. The object was reported to be unearthed 35 feet under sand and alongside two mastodon bones. A mastodon is an extinct large tusked mammal species. The alloy of the wedge is composed of 12 different elements and considered strange because aluminum was not discovered until 1808 and not produced in quantity until 1885. Aluminium requires 1,000 degrees of heat to be made. The fact that the wedge was found in the same layer of earth as mastodon bones would make it at least 11,000 years old. Many people have claimed that the artifact is proof that aliens visited Earth and engineers say that the object resembles the foot of landing gear, not unlike the technology used on spaceships.

The ring remained there for around three minutes before disappearing completely. This event took place near Leamington Spa on Friday evening and has stumped officials.

Believe it or not, astronomers have found an enormous void in space that measures nearly a billion light-years across. This void is empty of both normal matter - such as galaxies and stars - and the mysterious "dark matter" that cannot be seen directly with telescopes. One of the researchers said: "If you were to travel at the speed of light, it would take you several years to get to the nearest stars in our own Milky Way galaxy; but if you were to go to this hole and enter one side, you'd have to travel for a billion years before you would get to the other side."

The expression cosmic irony or "irony of fate" stems from the notion that the gods (or the Fates) are amusing themselves by toying with the minds of mortals with deliberate ironic intent. Closely connected with situational irony, it arises from sharp contrasts between reality and human ideals, or between human intentions and actual results. The resulting situation is poignantly contrary to what was expected or intended. The image above just may be a perfect example of cosmic irony. Continue reading for more.
