    When people discuss "reality" and Civil War Ice Road Gold Loggers (or whatever show they're currently flogging) in the same sentence, I want to slap my head.

    Some of the shows are scripted. Others are not, but the people behind the scenes guide the action. A few are probably allowed to play out naturally, and then the editors take over, leaving us with something that does not accurately reflect reality. In the case of "reality television," "reality" is largely a marketing term. It's entertainment. Don't get too wound up over it. Or do get wound up over it if you enjoy that, but remember that it's no different than getting wound up over professional wrestling.

    yeah we need to start a 'Could it be' thread just in honor of 'Oak Island' yarns.
    Hey I found this lock! Could it be to a pirate's chest? Perhaps Templar Knights were on this exact spot where it was found!

    I enjoy watching the show i guess Iím not so emotionally wrapped up in it as some. In reality some people search their entire lives for something and never find it whether it be love a fortune. Any search for some fortune Iíll give it a shot except Searching for Pablo Escobarís money. I lasted 4 mins on that one.

    Everybody has an opinion - this is mine. Humor will be part of that opinion. I've found things - some can only dream about. Some was pure luck, some was pure knowledge and skill. After 40 years at MD'ing (off and on), I know a few things about finding treasure lost in the ground. As a retired software engineer, I now have unlimited time on my hands. Maybe I'll find something amazing, maybe I'll find some clad coins and beer bottle caps. It doesn't matter as long as you are true to yourself and in your dealings with other people. When you need incentive, remember as Mel Fischer said, 'Today is the day!' That's posted in my kitchen on an index card. HH!

    Im not sure how much these people have made from the show but it looks like someone has finally figured out how make a fortune off the story. So...in some ways you might say the treasure has been found thru advertising and bogus TV

    You never know, it was curious as to how and why they were starting to introduce Aliens into their sister program. Are they trying to spark interest from the Alien side into The Curse of Oak Island or are they trying to kill The Curse of Oak Island by now casting Aliens into the plot ? If so, then ratings go down and History Channel can exit Oak Island based on viewer ratings declining and appear to bow out gracefully ? Who knows what the end game is ?
    Kevin Knight was gracious enough to extend his expertise in codebreaking from Oak Island's "Le Formule" Ciphers........ to then carry over into the Hunt for the Zodiac Killer....LOL

    Here are the faint hints at the Z340 ciphers that are "On The Way" in their season 4 timelines and season 5 runups

    But he who knows forms, is able to grasp the unity of nature beneath the surface of materials which are very unlike. Thus is he able to identify and bring about things that have never been done before, things of the kind which neither the vicissitudes of nature, nor hard experimenting, nor pure accident could ever have actualized, nor even human thought dreamed of. And thus from the discovery of the forms flows true speculation and unrestricted operation.
