    What "unexplained" phenomena or incident captures your imagination most? At the moment, due to a podcast I listened to recently, I'm a bit obsessed with The Dyatlov Pass incident. Lots of conspiracy theories around this one, and the small details of the story are very, very creepy.

    What really happened to Madeleine McCann - I don't think we'll ever know the truth about that.

    The mysteries surrounding constructions like the Sphinx, Pyramids, Gobekli Tepe just fascinate me... how mainstream historians try to fit them into pre-existing narratives but some pieces of evidence might contradict things... it's just really interesting... I'm not sure how much I believe it... but yeah it fascinates me.

    I'd like to know why Chris Grayling hasn't been sacked.

    I read about this a few years ago, sounds just like an avalanche and overactive imaginations to me.

    I'd also like to know where my life went.

    Probably not actually spontaneous at all, I presume you mean of people?

    More like a slow burn of incapacitated people, dead from heart attack for instance and ignited by a nearby source. The body fat melts and is wicked towards the flame by clothing over a period of a couple of days or more.

    ...or whoever it was that thought the manufacture of Garibaldi Biscuits was a good idea

    I think the avalanche theory was written off by experts in the field
    . There's a good podcast about it (a three parter) on the Unexplained podcast.

    This frightens the bejezuz out of me. But I'm wondering if it's the thought of the tartan slippers that are usually found in the remains that actually worries me the most.

    Knowing the truth doesn't actually make it better.

    Why it is that no matter how much my income is, I always seem to end up skint.

    Along with many others I am still genuinely wondering why we seem hell bent on destroying ourselves in this country.

    Sometimes I can't sleep at night for wondering why Donald Duck wraps himself at the waist in a bath towel when exiting the shower and yet when clothed and going about his normal business he is devoid of either trousers or underpants.

    A mystery which besets me is why would any sentient human being find Mrs Brown's Boys amusing?

    I assume you mean spontaneous human combustion.

    Why I saw a black panther walking across a field on the edge of the town when I was on my way to school one morning. I later met two other people who'd seen it in different places.

    Why someone at the far end of my workplace's car park apparently vanished when I briefly walked behind some trees in their general direction whilst keeping a close eye on their only feasible way out.

    If JFK was shot not only by Lee Harvey Oswald, but accidentally by a panicking member of the secret service in the car behind who was handling an assault rifle that he hadn't been trained to use. To my mind the most feasible explanation so far.

    Why nobody ever sees ghosts of stone age people.
