Hey visitor, lemme tell you one thing - medical at that particular time was poor, his medical and surgical skills were amazing - he was amazing, my favourite - Ananya

Actually he wasn't smart, it was just that the people back in the 1890's didn't have the technology we have today. I know he was evil, though.

The Crystal Skulls were thought to be carved by the Mayans or the Aztecs for a long time. However, more outlandish theories have emerged over the years. Some theories: that they were created by aliens, that they came from Atlantis or Lemuria, or even that they were left behind by a society that now lives in the hollow center of the earth. Claims that they were carved with technology well beyond the reach of the Mayans and Aztecs have added to their mystery. - Irina2932

12Did Anyone Escape From Alcatraz?
13The Amber Room

Some people believe that the Amber Room was destroyed by the bombing and lost forever. However, several other theories have been formulated: that it is still hidden in an underground bunker at Konigsberg, that it is buried in a mine in the Ore Mountains or that it was aboard a submarine or ship in the Baltic Sea that was sunk by the Soviet Navy. In 1997, one stone mosaic that had decorated the room was discovered in Western Germany, in the hands of a family of a soldier who had helped disassemble the Amber Room. The rest of it has never been found, despite several claims to the contrary. - Irina2932

15The Assassination of John F. Kennedy

Many of the conspiracy theories that surround the assassination began the day that the Warren Commission�s results were released. The most prominent theory is that there was more than one shooter, either somewhere else in Dealey Plaza or on the grassy knoll. Other conspiracy theories include cover-ups by the Federal Reserve, the CIA, the Secret Service, Cuban exiles, CIA agent E. Howard Hunt, the Mafia, Lyndon Johnson, the American Fact-Finding Committee, the Soviet Bloc and the Israeli government. - Irina2932

16The Tomb of Vlad Dracula

The most widely accepted theory about Vlad�s tomb is that he was buried at the island monastery of Snagov. However, after several archeological excavations of the island, Vlad�s body was not recovered. The other speculation is that Vlad�s body may have been originally buried at the Comana Monastery, however, the monastery was rebuilt in the seventeenth century and no body has ever been found there, either. Another option comes from superstition, because of tales of vampires running rampant in Wallachia at the time- Vlad could have been moved anywhere to protect the monks from being killed in their sleep. - Irina2932
