According to the famous American writer H. P. Lovecraft, “The oldest and strongest emotion of humankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” Just the same, our thirst to quench curiosity has helped us conquer this fear.
Being a not-so-big part of the vast universe, humans encounter a plethora of mysterious phenomena every other day. No matter how much we uncover, there’s always a long stretch of mysteries lined up. When an ordinary human discovers such an unexplainable phenomenon, they post it on the internet, expecting answers from an expert. Luckily, thanks to scientists and travelers, most of the mysteries that have been discovered up to this day have been answered.

#4 The Infamous “Blue Lagoon” With Blue-colored Water
The most acceptable theory surrounding this lake suggests that the unusual color of the pond is due to the minerals deposited at the bottom. Surrounding legends say that the blue color disappears when you pour this water into a glass. Another of the legends says that those who swim in it, die soon after.

Almost all people tend to acquire this superpower during the winter. It’s nothing like the powers of Thor, but it’s something that can be explained within the realm of science.
