Quote from: ziznak on December 09, 2015, 01:41:23 PMI may have to check this show out to see what some of you are talking about. I was drawn to the "booby-trap" aspect of the money pit. I had read or watched something somewhere that claimed that dye was poured into the pit and was seen to flow out from a number of places around the island implying that there was some sort of tunnel system installed or there naturally.
Quote from: Rix Gins on December 09, 2015, 02:01:58 PMHere is a diagram that shows those tunnels, and this has fascinated me also...how those long ago pirates (or whomever?) were able to dig such marvels of engineering with such long ago tools. They should locate one of these side tunnels and send a mini robot cam down it. But as Kongfish has pointed out, I don't think its within the powers of the two brothers to do something like that..
Quote from: ziznak on December 09, 2015, 02:19:00 PMNice I've seen a few maps like this one. This one looks great though!! Has that old treasuremap feel. Wasn't there some sort of coconut matting found in one of the levels? or some sort of "non-regional" plant material? There was also some connection with the coded stone writing in the pit to the "kensignton runestone?" writing
Quote from: Kongfish on December 09, 2015, 01:47:09 PMI really was intrigued at the start of the show, I read that same article and it had always interged me as well. I moved down here to the Florida keys to hunt for treasure in my spare time I have the fever so bad. But, I can say this with no regrets. The first two seasons I stopped watching after that. I tuned in at the start of this season just to see where they were. When they had the producer on I knew right then, this show is a fucking joke. It gives treasure hunters a bad name. The show went from hunting for the Oak island Treasure. To the filming of the show being the treasure chest. They were showing the hunt for the treasure and then this season they have spread the hunt out to six or seven different hunts that they show a small piece of each hunt in the show. Segment 1.) the hole Dan Blankenship dug where they thing there's a room at the bottom of. There showing such short segments of each area of the island that their hunting in, that in week #1 they started out by showing the scuba diver putting a glove on. Now in week 5, the scuba diver finally got his fifth finger in the glove.#2) where they are digging with their million dollar Tonka truck toys. They have gotten so greedy, that they devoted one entire show to a segment that showed them dig 5 scoops of dirt, the whole show. It's a fucking joke.3.) the curse of Oak island says 6 have died , & 7 must die before the mystery is solved. At the rate that they have slowed the TV show down to, 15 fucking people are going to be dead before they get back from the next commercial break, their going so slow.4.) I could have walked to Oak island from here and started digging with one hand and made more progress then these morons have made. They let their passion for treasure hunting get totally destroyed by letting that TV producer talk them into slowing everything way down. Now their passion is filming a TV show of them talking about wanting to treasure hunt, not ever actually hunting for treasure anymore. He show now officially Sucks. I stopped watching. I could find more treasure picking my nose then those clowns will ever find.

Quote from: zeebo on December 11, 2015, 05:08:39 AMThe show's kinda become like Gilligan's Island. "Wait, this week, are they really going to do it? They're soooo close! Oh man, darn, I guess not. Well what's their next chance then?"There was a guy early on that had a pretty good idea about those marker stones and they spent a whole episode building it up and then a minute dismissing it at the end ... and then, wait!, next theory!, forget all that rock formation stuff, there's something weird in the swamp!
Quote from: BellBoy on December 11, 2015, 05:56:36 AMI just wish they'd add a new member to the crew, a Mary Ann type maybe... in a really tight sweater.

Quote from: coaster on November 19, 2014, 04:04:36 AMI am really interested in Oak Island, but the History Channel is garbage. Remember, this is the same station that had staged fights between lumberjacks on the show "Ax Men" and overweight actors on Pawn Stars. Forget learning anything on that channel. The brothers seem ok, but they have the folks at History Channel urging them to do stupid shit for ratings. Planting a coin for instance. Fuck I hate what that channel has become. You can thank Nancy Dubuc, the President and CEO of History, who also owns LMN and a slew of other garbage stations. She would rather get a paycheck making cheaply produced scripted "reality" shows than make an honest genuine television show. /rant
Quote from: The General on December 11, 2015, 11:23:34 AMMakes me sad how the History channel just does weird vaguely historical reality shows now. I remember 20 years ago it was really cool educational TV, a refreshing blast of informative documentaries 24 hours a day. At least that's how I remember it. It had a big WW2 documentary bias, it seems. It was great. You're lucky to get any history at all on there now. Fucking "Swamp People", are you kidding me?
Quote from: onan on December 11, 2015, 11:28:47 AMHey man, good to see you. It is a shame, I am starting to think public beheadings might be a good thing. I mean, how did Honey Boo Boo become a household name?

Quote from: Roswells, Art on December 16, 2015, 10:55:06 AMI caught one episode. What happened with the diver they were going to put in a cage and lower down?
