    I can't remember where I read it but somebody said …...if you ever decide to murder someone, make sure you bury the body on Oak Island. That way, no one will ever find it

    I don’t know about you but I definitely wouldn’t sail off into the wild blue ocean and leave my treasure behind. “Here! Let’s leave our wealth on this island at an impossible depth and never return for it”.
    Not human nature from my view.

    I have no doubt whatsoever that : The believers could indeed dream up a possible scenario. Where such a desire or need-to-do, could be conceived of.

    And no matter how implausible or unlikely the explanation could be, .. yet the mere fact that it *might-be-possible*, they would then punt the ball back to your court. To DIS-prove that extreme-contingent explanation. Ie.: for you to prove it's IMpossible. And if you can't, well then presto: There's a fabulous treasure there at insane depths.

    having seen a few things in real life that left me wondering "What were they thinking?" The"Reasonings" behind someone doing something that boggles the mind can be endless. Hmmm I said the same thing about my kids and my first wife!

    Hint for you faithful followers. If you're really interested in a program / series, buy or order it on DVD! I was trying to keep up with another program and got tired of the commercials. Only place I could find it was Germany or Australia. No prob. got a zone free DVD player. Here's what struck me as funny. A hour long episode on the disk without all the commercials & fluff runs 28 - 36 minutes. I noticed too some of the show was shaved or edited out to fit another commercial (my assumption). A lot of things in this series are making sense and blanks filled in now. That along with losing the train of thought in the week between.

    You can find real nice zone free DVD players for $40 & up now, so that and being able to watch a program start to finish is worth the bucks! If you decide you don't like the disks you can always sell or trade & make most of your $$$ back. And most importantly!!! You can make a head run & not miss a thing! A big plus for us old farts!! OH!!! take a look or search the catalogs of other countries! You'll be amazed how little is offered in the U.S.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....

    I've been interested in Oak Island since the original Reader's Digest article. I visited Oak Island years ago, but there wasn't much there. I remember a depression in the ground and a wooden sign that said, "Money Pit". There wasn't any active work being done to find any treasure at the time.

    I also have to admit I watch the TV show. I tell myself I'm going to quit watching it after each episode. The most annoying part is when they find a nail, or piece of lead and the announcer says, "A nail? Could this be a nail left by the Templars" or similar. But if you take a normal hour long TV show they have 41 minutes of time to use (the rest are commercials). On this show they've got a minute or more introduction every show. They then recap not just the last show, but what seems to be several seasons. Then when anything is said the announce repeats it, and then after a commercial it's all repeated again.

    I have no idea if there's anything of value to find on Oak Island. At this point the history seems so jumbled up it will be extremely difficult to even figure who did it even if they find anything. It's all speculation.

    I honestly think that it's more about making money off the TV show than it is about actually figuring out what happened. If I was making money off the TV show I'd drag it out as long as possible as well.

    I'll watch it again this week and beat myself up for wasting yet another hour no resolution in sight. If I could classify it as "entertainment" in my mind (which is really all it is) instead of a "documentary" I'd be much more willing to accept it... at least up until I hear the announcer say something like, "A tooth? Could this be the tooth a long ago slave carrying the Ark of the Covenant?". Ugh.

I can understand people being attracted to something like this but heck, it is like someone telling a three minute story with forty minutes of fill added. just venting
    Commercial Free...Watch the day after...Watch when ever you wish to watch!

    And Yes...Even without commercials...the show is over 40 minutes long.

    The fine art of tempting you with a tiny bit of possible exciting stuff to keep you watching. Reminds me of as a kid, watching the old Batman TV series. but it sounds like the tourist part of it has done very well for them. keep dragging in all of these different angles of possibilities.
    we used to call that chasing rabbits which made a story last a lot longer LOL

    THE ADMIRAL (my wife) forbids me from watching "Ancient Aliens" because I get too mad at the content. How insulting to the people who did build ancient structures and civilizations. Just because the host majored in Sports Communication at Ithaca College ('s true) and doesn't understand a lick about anthropology or archeology "it must be aliens". What a joke.
    The ancient aliens followers kill me. They think the pyramids were batteries. There should be a disclaimer that the show has nothing to do with reality.
