The Water Cooler – Unsolved Mysteries

October 16, 2020 12:47 pm · 49 comments

The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it.

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday at noon.

Today’s question:

Are there any mysteries that you think will one day be solved? (Who killed JFK? Is Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster real? Do UFOs exist? etc….)

Also, what are the unsolved mysteries that interest you the most?

Talk about it.

Who killed Vince Foster, and how over 1,000 FBI files on political opponents ended up in the White House living quarters when Clinton was President?

bdml October 16, 2020 at 2:07 PM

Nice, I have often wondered how they managed to dodge more questions on this.

Doh October 16, 2020 at 4:05 PM

Vince Foster was a suicide. The starters of that rumor confessed to it and many other rumors they started to make Clinton look bad.

Snappy97 October 17, 2020 at 1:27 PM

@Doh – Vince did not commit suicide/worked for corner who looked at pics and said it was impossible
A.body position does not match shooting oneself in head
B, Lack of blood

My seven year old neighbor Janice Pickett was kidnapped in 1973 and was never found, We were the same age. I saw her on her bicycle as she was heading to get her butterfly. I said hi but told her I couldn’t go with her because my mom was taking me with her to go grocery shopping. It was very scary for me as a young child. I think of her all the time. Still hoping we get answers some day

Wow. How awful that must’ve been.

Future Catlady October 16, 2020 at 1:47 PM

I am sorry to hear this. How sad it must have been to lose a friend at such a young age and under those circumstances.

Roz October 16, 2020 at 2:12 PM

Sad to hear this,….and it is something that stays with you. In Junior High, a neighborhood kid, friend, shot himself in the head and died. I always wondered why he did,….he was well liked.

Simonpure October 16, 2020 at 3:00 PM

Sad indeed.

Roz…same thing happened to me in high school. He called his mother at work, said good bye, I love you and went to the backyard and took his life. One of the worst things that has ever happened to me.

There are things that were made in the past, thousands of years ago that defy belief that ancient people could have built them. The pyramids in Egypt for one. There is a wall in Peru that has fifty ton boulders in it yet it fits like a puzzle and a sheet of paper doesn’t fit between the boulders. Built without metal tools. On top of that there are no tool marks on it. There is another stone wall down there that has perfect right angles recessed in it that looks like it was machine made. There are many more mysterious things from way back. Something very strange went on thousands of years ago and we will never know what.

Roz October 16, 2020 at 2:05 PM

That would be interesting to know “How it was Made”.

Steve October 16, 2020 at 1:20 PM

The government has already admitted that UFOs are real – the remaining question is what are they? Aliens, foreign governments, natural phenomena??

Doh October 16, 2020 at 4:24 PM

Unidentified is unidentified. It could be anything. Aliens from outer space would have to have extremely advanced science in order to travel to here. 1 light year is 5.8 trillion miles. Our Milky Way Galaxy is 100,000 light years across. Outside of our Sun, our solar system’s nearest star is Alpha Centauri. This isn’t a single star, it’s actually a triple-star system — three stars bound together by gravity. It lies 4.37 light years from the Sun. If that solar system is where the aliens are from then they would have to travel the speed of light to make it here in 4 years and almost 5 months. I don’t think it is likely we have been visited.

If any make the trip I do wish the aliens would stop by and say “Hi.”

Cowellian October 16, 2020 at 1:30 PM

If something is in the air and you don’t know what it is, by definition, it is an unidentified flying object.

JJ October 16, 2020 at 1:32 PM

Where do all the taxpayer dollars go in the City of Walnut Creek?

Ash October 16, 2020 at 1:37 PM

heck why is the state of kalifornia always asking for federal dollars (no such thing btw) when we have/had a $5B surplus

Aunt Barbara October 16, 2020 at 4:05 PM

Big time audit needed to expose

Concord74 October 17, 2020 at 8:40 AM

Ever hear the term “Sanctuary City/State”? Well, I believe SF, Concord, WC, San Jose and OKLD are in that pot usurping our tax monies!

S October 16, 2020 at 1:58 PM



Zodiac Killer (for sure, not the speculation)

foothillsguy October 16, 2020 at 8:38 PM


anon October 16, 2020 at 11:06 PM

Ted Cruz is the Zodiac killer.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 17, 2020 at 8:53 AM

Ted was born in 1970.
You could try blaming his Dad.

chuckie the troll October 17, 2020 at 10:48 AM

Splat on island

Concrete in New Jersey

Died of old age

Momof2 October 17, 2020 at 8:38 PM

Same. Zodiac Killer.

Bella October 16, 2020 at 2:22 PM

Two. I’m with S.about the Zodiac Killer. JonBenet Ramsey for me also, as we had just arrived in Cherry Creek, sub of Denver two months before the killing, 1996. CBS Doc had the best I’ve seen on it-2016. Burke Ramsey sued them over it.

Ano October 16, 2020 at 10:52 PM

Brother did it. Parents covered it up

Bob October 16, 2020 at 2:27 PM

– Deep State killed JFK to prevent an investigation into CIA black ops

– Bigfeet are 100% real

– Loch Ness Monster was fake from the start

– TWA Flight 800 was shot down, which was inconvenient for the Clintons during an election year.

Sandy G October 16, 2020 at 2:30 PM

Who took Amber Schwartz (Garcia?).
We lived in Pinole at the time. One exit away.
If affected the neighborhood children.
Nobody wanted to play outside any more.
They didn’t feel comfortable walking home from school any more. October 17, 2020 at 8:33 PM

Yes!!! I too was a child about b her age and it always scared me a bit growing up and I believe it was her case that made me “aware” of kidnappings

Antler October 16, 2020 at 3:55 PM

Terrific Water Cooler topic, Mayor!

I would like to know why military aircraft failed to deploy and shoot down the second and third liners which impacted the Twin Towers…… Richard Clarke had given the command from the White House operations room!

Also, after United States air space had been ordered completely closed down, why was a plane carrying members of the Saudi royal family permitted to take off and fly back to Saudi Arabia?

And why did inspectors find many pieces of demolition detonators in the wreckage of the Twin Towers? Why did the buildings collapse beautifully and tragically STRAIGHT DOWN?

Why were airline cleaning crews not apprehended and interrogated re having planted box cutters in airplane restrooms…… all at the same general scheduled departure times? Why was the flight school staff at the school which supposedly only taught about light aircraft 1. Teaching men (non citizens) how to fly commercial aircraft OUTBOUND but not teaching them to land? (The instructor mostly shrugged and said he thought it was “a little strange” that they weren’t interested in landing procedures, yet the instructor was not jailed nor seriously interrogated re passing them)

Why did it take SO MANY WEEKS before fully automatically armed military personnel were stationed at commercial airport check-in and security check areas?

Just part of the monumental questions still unsolved about those multiple tragedies….

Sam October 16, 2020 at 6:39 PM

It’s a mystery to me how you can question 9/11, but you’re buying the coveed.

FPN October 16, 2020 at 5:26 PM

I want to know where we came from and how we were created and what happens when we die.

Roz October 16, 2020 at 6:26 PM

Wouldn’t that be cool to know!

CAtoTX October 16, 2020 at 8:47 PM

Read the Bible.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 16, 2020 at 9:08 PM

The unsolved mysteries that interest me the most?

Well…… when I was a teen working late at night at a restaurant I saw a cup with a soft drink in it, fly horizontally off a shelf and hit a wall about 6′ away…. all by itself… and the shelf it was on was mounted up high on a solid wall.
It wasn’t just me either, a few of us saw it happen…. yes, we were pretty freaked out by it…. I’d kinda like to know how that happened.

Ancient Mariner October 16, 2020 at 9:15 PM

Just wait a bit – you’ll find out!

ZZ October 16, 2020 at 10:00 PM

@CAtoTX exactly!

Sam October 16, 2020 at 6:35 PM

Hunter Biden’s 3.5 million from Russia. The 10 million a year from China and his 50k a month no work/job in Ukraine. It’s a mystery how him and pops pulled it off while smoking crack and filming himself with underage girls.

Fab October 16, 2020 at 7:59 PM

Who killed Tupac

Dr. Jellyfinger October 17, 2020 at 11:25 PM

It wasn’t me……… but I did just kill 6 pack.

Frank October 16, 2020 at 8:10 PM

Why do people who should know better continue to vote Dems into positions of power?

anon October 16, 2020 at 11:11 PM

Where did Covid come from? Did a test bat pee into a scientists mouth/eyes/mucous membrane, did the scientist pretend nothing happened and go about his daily life, thus spreading it?

Did China spread fake videos of bodies piled up in the streets and complete pandemonium during the beginning of the pandemic in order to destroy the economies of its enemies?

Did AIDs really come from a guy having sex with monkeys?

The moonlanding seems awful suspicious.

That Denver Airport is awful dubious, what’s underneath it?

Why did Israel pull out dozens of agents from America the day after 9/11?

Justifiable languor October 17, 2020 at 7:12 AM

There was a tandem story about unusually high activity in the crematoriums at the same time when the Chinese government was still lying about it. A satellite photo showed intense heat at three sites. Maybe they were just burning rags.

jose October 17, 2020 at 4:48 AM

Right after Flt 800 happened, one of the first news stories that came on the tv showed a short video clip taken at a party in someones backyard out on Long Island. In the video you could clearly see an object or missile doing a corkscrew climb up from the horizon to the aircraft. That video clip was never shown again that I remember.
I have seen numerous ‘heat seeking’ missiles fired at targets in the air and the ground to air ones do the corkscrew flight while they are homing in on the target. So the frayed wire in the fuel tank/tanks was the cover-up storey.
Just my opinion and observation.

Bob October 17, 2020 at 10:01 AM

Never a good look when NTSB access to evidence is restricted, or flat out denied.

Rolaids October 17, 2020 at 6:10 AM

Who killed Mark Coon?

Antler October 17, 2020 at 11:35 PM

Rolaids, I wonder, too.

Rolaids October 17, 2020 at 6:14 AM

To paraphrase the old real estate maxim, “Building 7, Building 7, Building 7.”

inmotion October 17, 2020 at 10:07 AM

IF you believe qanon, today JFKjr. will make his presence known to the world, he’ll replace Pence as trumps running mate.
