Wife watched a TV program on "Mystery Hill" in Blowing Rock NC.

"There's something weird in this mountain. Objects roll up hill. Water flows uphill."

Bull.

Shit.

Tourist trap with some clever optical illusions.

But noooooooo, science/physics be damned, it was on TV and she saw it with her own eyes so it must be true.




Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

? I've seen it. The car rolled one way and the water flowed the other....

It's close by- Take the wife it'll be a hoot.

Magnetic Hill (Moncton)

The Magnetic Hill is an example of a gravity hill, a type of optical illusion created by rising and descending terrain. It is located at the northwestern edge (In the Magnetic Hill Area) of the city of Moncton in the Canadian province of New Brunswick.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

There's one here in Florida, too. Somewhere near Winterhaven.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

There is also one near Burkittsville, MD aptly named "Spook Hill" where "ghosts of Civil War soldiers" push cars up the hill. Burkittsville was the supposed setting of the fictional "Blair Witch Project". There are a few shots from the town in the film.

But just think, if it weren't for gullible people you wouldn't get all those bullshit calls and emails.


I'm not completely useless. I can be used as a bad example.

My wife is very gullible even being highly educated but I love her dearly. Her problem is she trusts pretty much everyone. I am the opposite.

We have one in the upper peninsula, the Mystery Spot, I believe it's called.

I expected the thread to be some kind of "The fact that all of you are reading this just proves my point" sort of content, but risked being grouped with the gullible to check it out anyway.

There’s one (gravity hill) off Hwy 21 in western NC before the mountain to Sparta.

I’ve done it half a dozen times.




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

The "Mystery Spot" in Santa Cruz is a good one. You're not really a cool cat unless your car has a Mystery Spot bumper sticker.

Pennsylvania has Gravity Hill
http://www.gravityhill.com/

My wife and I toured Bedford County covered bridges and came across Gravity Hill. Basically a country road, no cost, no sales pitch, just a few lines and instructions painted on the road.
Clearly an optical illusion but it's fun and it does appear that the car is moving uphill.
