A Former Bricklayer Was Mysteriously Kidnapped After An Attempt to Expose Freemason Secrets!


William Morgan was born in 1774 in Batavia, New York and grew up to be anti-mason. Which opposed the way of the Freemason, a fraternal group within the United States that still exists today.

When Mason announced the book he was releasing, he was then arrested. Then, Freemasons kidnapped him. His disappearance was then presumed a murder in 1826.

When Morgan decided to write a book exposing the secrets of the Freemason world, a New York politician was inspired to create the Anti-Masonic Party. This party went against a president himself! This president was Andrew Jackson. While this was a party on the ballot in 1832, it went out the window by 1835.

Freemasons deny ever murdering William Morgan, as they claimed to have paid him $500 to leave the country. Others in numerous countries claimed to have seen this famous man, but none were ever confirmed. Three Freemasons were however convicted of his disappearance including Loton Lawon, Nicholas Chesebro and Edward Sawyer.

A German abbot wrote a book about magic--or did he? Find out what it's really about!


Ancient tomes scribbled with incomprehensible text, thought to hold thought-provoking insider looks into mysticism and history—or a really awesome secret code.

So, 1499 isn't so much "ancient" history, but that's when an interesting German abbot, Johannes Trithemius, wrote a book on magic, or so they thought. Turns out it was one of the first books on cryptography, the art of secret messages and passwords!

Encryption is all the rage nowadays with computer hackers constantly getting at personal data. Turns out abbots in the 15th century had things to hide too, so they did it in deceiving text. What many thought was a book on magic and using spirits to communicate over long distances, "Steganographia" was actually an early work on cryptography and steganography.

The book was written in three volumes with the first two clearly being on the secret subject after the decryption key was published 100 years later in 1606. Until recently, it was thought that the third volume really was about magic, but the "magic formula" was cracked and shows more cryptology content.

On 20 October 1944 an above ground gas storage tank in Cleveland, Ohio started leaking. The ensuing disaster killed 130 people and left 600 homeless


On Friday, 20 October 1944 residents of Cleveland East, Ohio were going about their business in the usual way, not realizing that by that afternoon 130 people would have died and many would have lost their homes and their life's savings.

By 2:30 pm an above storage tank storing liquefied natural gas, started leaking from a side seam. It was located at the East Ohio Gas Company's tank farm near Lake Erie.

Winds from the lake pushed the vapor into a mixed use section of Cleveland, where it dropped into the sewer lines via the street gutters.

When it mixed with air and sewer gas, the mixture ignited and exploded, and the jets of fire that was sent up from the sewer lines blew manhole covers into the sky. One was found several miles east, in Glenville!

That was not the end of it. At 3:00 pm another above ground tank exploded, leveling the tank farm. Explosions and fires continued to occur, travelling through sewers and up through drains. Many housewives found themselves trapped in their burning homes.

The county coroner estimated the death toll to be 200, but it was actually 130. Six hundred people were left homeless as 70 homes, 2 factories, numerous cars and miles of underground infrastructure were destroyed.

Some awesome lists!

The entire Indonesian Declaration of Independence is only a few sentences long, was written the night before and is signed by 2 people


Indonesia won their independence in 1949, four years after officially declaring their independence.

That declaration is only a few sentences long, though, and was only written the night before it was presented. It was also only signed by two people.

In 1945, Indonesia had plans to declare their independence.

The declaration was to be signed by the 27 members of the Preparatory Committee for Indonesian Independence symbolically representing the new nation's diversity, but the more radical members argued that there would be credibility issues if that were the case.

Instead, a compromise was reached to have only two people sign it: Sukarno and Mohammad Hatta, who signed "In the name of the people of Indonesia".

The reason the declaration was drafted in such a hurry is because they wanted to take advantage of one particular recent event: the unconditional surrender of Japan to the allies after the bombing of Nagasaki.

The entire declaration goes as follows (translated into English):

WE THE PEOPLE OF INDONESIA HEREBY DECLARE THE INDEPENDENCE OF INDONESIA. MATTERS WHICH CONCERN THE TRANSFER OF POWER AND OTHER THINGS WILL BE EXECUTED BY CAREFUL MEANS AND IN THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE TIME. DJAKARTA, 17 AUGUST 1945 IN THE NAME OF THE PEOPLE OF INDONESIA SOEKARNO—HATTA

During WWII a man saved 8000 Jews by faking a typhus epidemic!


Eugene Lazowski's generosity under the threat of execution is another reminder that not all human beings are terrible.

Like many others, Eugene's actions during World War II helped save thousands of Jews that would have most certainly been executed in a concentration camp by the Nazi's.

Eugene Lazowski was born and raised in a small town in Poland. When World War II came rolling around, Eugene, like many other brave young men around the world decided to enlist in the army.

First, he was a second lieutenant on a Red Cross train, later becoming a medical doctor in the Polish resistance.

Eugene Lazowski, with the help of his friend Dr Stanislaw Mateluwicz, created a fake Typhus disease and secretely spread it amongst all the civilians in the town.

The fake Typhus epidemic wasn't lethal, but to the Nazi doctors, it appeared as if almost the entire population of the city had Typhus! As a result, the Nazi's quarantined the city and around 8,000 Jewish people avoided going to concentration camps as a result!

Eugene Lazowski passed away in 2006.
