When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro....
Oak Island show on Discovery.....
I just saw a commercial for a show on Discovery about two guys going after Oak Island. I've always wondered what might be in the bottom of that hole, but I have a feeling whatever it is was probably destroyed by years of being flooded and people drilling holes through it... Thoughts? Think they'll actually find anything?

It'll be like all if the other shows. They will find nothing!

There was a show on a few years ago that said the location has been dug so much they have no idea where the first shaft was anymore. I'm sure they will find nothing.

I'm with you mangum, a bunch of hype.

Every attempt over the years apparently allows the shaft to fill in more and more.

Ha ha, I probably watch until the smell hits the screen.

It will be on the History channel. It is a docu-series that will begin at 10pm on Jan.5, called "The Curse Of Oak Island."
I'll watch it... don't know for how long but i'll give it a shot. I think the history channel should be renamed the Fantasy Entertainment Network.

The last time I saw something on Oak Island was an episode "In Search Of" hosted by Leonard Nimoy.
I can't help but cringe on today's docudramas.
"Hollywood" handling of gold pans, seeded gold pans, exaggerated compensation.
I remember being featured on a local Los Angeles prospecting piece, on the day of filming, all sorts of characters showed up. some of these folks have never been seen
before "ever" on the east fork. We are talking 30 year every day of the week/ weekend veterans saying, "who the hell is that guy"
Yet, some managed a speaking part.
Nothing has changed in the industry.
(I will post the clip only if someone claims B.S.)

over the years they say a number of well healed celebrities have sunk much coin into trying to get to the bottom. I believe "the Duke" was one of them.
I'm sure it will make great tv fodder.

Mike Rowe,from "Dirty Jobs" is at the bottom ,pitching another show for the Discovery Channel.

Wonder if they'll put a disclaimer at the end stating "all facts edited for entertainment purposes"...

The latest theory is that if they ever get to the bottom of the pit the will discover the Arc Of The Covenant. I think they may find John Gottie, Elvis and JFK living down there in luxury.

I've been on Oak Island many times, I even have a chunk of wood from Borehole 10-X that I was able to salvage...I'll watch it just for fun!

Old Tom Cat.
It will be of some interest to me .
"In Search of " was one of my favorite shows back when I was 13 years old , I likely still like it , just have not seen it in years.
So I loving today's Bigfoot, UFO, Ghost ,Paranormal type Shows , Don,t really care for Mediums and such tho.
Don't get me wrong .( I do not believe everything I see & hear on TV & elsewhere for that matter)..

I deal in reality
The big question is, is this the final curtain call for Oak Island? For many years I have read the story and seen the TV shows. The last one I watched, they drilled a hole parallel to the original, but for some reason they didn't use liners. The whole area around the estimated original pit collapsed. So the actual location of the original pit is not really known. But I am sure they can come up with it. lol Frank...
The original tower over the pit.
PS: If you believe that, I have a bridge in brooklyn to sell to you cheap. lol

The only thing that lack of success shows the faithful is that ..... doh ...... it must be deeper! See how deeply the human mind wants to believe? Why do you think Tnet has all those subsections on the various legends and superstitious lore on the myriads of supposed treasures out there? Why do you think the goofy stories in all the old treasure magazines of the 1970s sold so many editions? It's the psychology we all have ingrained in us to believe "lest we be left out". And no amount of counter-evidence convinces them otherwise.
When I was hunting all over Mexico, I came to one village with my host. A certain boy in his young teens ...... who found out that some americans in town had metal detectors, came to me asking to go check a certain cave. I followed him out into the canyons near town, to a cave. It went in a certain short distance, and opened up into a room sized cavity. I turned on the detector, and heard nothing. Scanned the entire floor. Switched to all metal, still nothing. As I turned to tell him, I could tell he was in dis-belief. So I removed my headphone jack and let him hear for himself. He still couldn't believe it, and said that what we needed was a a) machine that goes deeper, and b) a machine that finds only gold. And thus he started asking about other type detectors made in america. He was convinced there was a treasure there, because he'd seen sparkles in the ground, or smoke coming from the hills, or had a vision, or some such nonsense.
I saw this same scenario, with different twists and tales, all over mexico. It was never that a treasure wasn't there, or that there 10th hand stories passed around for 5 generations wasn't iron-clad fact and true, it was always that the treasure was deeper.
So too is it with this oak island thing.
Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!
