Post Apocalyptic Calendar – May Days 
Unabomber: A Revolutionary Recluse’s Promising Beginning
In 1958, 16 year old Theodore Kaczynski graduates early from public high school in Evergreen, Illinois and begins his studies in mathematics at Harvard. Though categorized in the media as a tortured genius from birth–  a stereotypical, problematic “loner”, the health-services doctor who interviewed Kaczynski for the medical examination Harvard required of incoming freshmen observed:

Good impression created. Attractive, mature for age, relaxed…. Talks easily, fluently and pleasantly…. likes people and gets on well with them. May have many acquaintances but makes his friends carefully. Prefers to be by himself part of the time at least. May be slightly shy…. Essentially a practical and realistic planner and an efficient worker…. Exceedingly stable, well integrated and feels secure within himself. Usually very adaptable. May have many achievements and satisfactions.

        – Alston Chase, Harvard and the making of the Unabomber, Part 1

Twenty years later, in May of 1978, Ted mails his first bomb, beginning 17 years of domestic terror by delivering a series of increasingly sophisticated explosive devices that killed three and injured 24.

A gem from the X-Files episode Jose Chung’s “From Outer Space”. A character who says he saw an alien abduction is named ‘Roky Crikenson’. I had to screenshot this just to check and see it wasn’t ‘Roky Erickson’. Ah, so close.

'Eyes' in the Cave
Phantoms and Monsters received this from Sean Forker on April 8th, 2014. What do you think these are?

This photo was taken in 1895 by an amateur spelunker/photographer named Oren Jeffries while exploring an unmapped section of Grand Caverns, in Southwestern Virginia. At the time it was taken, Jeffries was conducting photographic experiments, using super long exposures to see if anything at all could be captured in the total absence of light—otherwise known as “cave darkness.” He would situate himself on level ground, extinguish his lantern, and then open the lens of his homemade box camera for as long as he could stand the darkness. During one of these experiments, he heard something approach from the deeper recesses of the cave. Frightened, Jeffries abandoned his experiment and set off one of the Blitzlicht flashes he used for taking traditional photos underground. According to the report he later gave to a local newspaper, Jeffries saw three “humanoid” creatures staring at him from the shadows and took off running in the other direction and didn’t stop running until he was topside. Several days later, he returned with three other men to retrieve his box camera. This is the image that was recorded on the film inside.
