Someone Has Reportedly Found Forrest Fenn’s $2 Million Rocky Mountain Treasure

People love searching for treasures. Pirates fascinate us (even though they mostly didn’t bury their treasures), metal detectors can always be found on beaches around the world, children love to go on treasure hunts…

So it’s no surprise that, in the decade since writer and artifact’s dealer Forrest Fenn hid a treasure in the Rocky Mountains, people have been poring over his book that contains the poem he promised would lead them to the metaphorical ‘X’ over the spot.

The cryptic, 24-line poem was published in Fenn’s memoirThe Thrill of the Chase. It alluded to a canyon and “home of the Brown,” and included a warning that there will “be no paddle up your creek…just heavy loads and water high.”

An estimated 350,000 people have gone out to the Rocky Mountains with the express purpose of hunting the treasure, according to The Washington Post, and their searches have not been without controversy. At least five people have lost their lives in pursuit, and others have been charged with damaging the environment or cultural artifacts accidentally.

The deaths, along with a lengthy list of safety concerns, led New Mexico State Police Chief Pete Kassetas to ask the treasure be retrieved by its owner in 2017.

“He’s putting lives at risk,” he said in a statement to The Associated Press at the time.

When Fenn hid the treasure, it took two separate trips, seeing as it weighs an estimated 42 pounds. Now, he’s reporting that it’s been found on June 6th by a man from “back East” who prefers to remain anonymous for the time being.

He’s also not confirming quite yet the location of the treasure, saying only that “it was under a canopy of stars in the lush, forested vegetation of the Rocky Mountains and had not moved from the spot where I hid it more than 10 years ago. I do not know the person who found it, but the poem in my book led him to the precise spot.”

Fenn says he confirmed the discovery was legitimate using pictures sent by the man, though no outside source has seen them, the treasure, or officially confirmed.

Still, it seems the search is over – for this treasure, anyway.

“I congratulate the thousands of people who participated in the search and hope they will continue to be drawn by the promise of other discoveries. So, the search is over. Look for more information and photos in the coming days.”

And remember, the beauty of nature is there to be explored all of the time, and it contains treasures that you don’t have to dig up, or get in trouble, to find.

Snoop Dogg Listens to Frozen’s “Let It Go” as a Coping Mechanism

Everyone has times when they feel down, even the great Snoop Dogg. Like so many others, he also has unique coping mechanisms.

Twitter was delighted to find footage of the Hip-Hop star listening to Frozen’s Let It Go.” This Twitter user brought up the topic, which shows Snoop listening to the famous song in his parked car.

Now, some people expressed that the famous rapper is also a stoner, and he was just having a moment.

Others commented on Snoop’s looks. They’re right to comment on this though.

In these rough times, we sometimes wake up on the wrong side of the bed. This clip was therapeutic for people who needed a mood booster.

People wanted to dissect exactly what happened. They needed a full understanding!

Stories about moments with Snoop, and of course they were heartwarming in the stoner way.

Others appreciated Snoop’s lifehack and decided to make it a part of their future arsenal as well.

Fans of Snoop Dogg even suggested that he might be a great counselor. After all, he’s a pretty chill dude, and seems like a great listener.

And of course, others were happy just to relate to Snoop Dogg. If he can have a bad day and need help, then we’re all stronger for admitting that we need to have happiness rituals like this one.

You do you, Snoop Dogg! Thank you for sharing your adorable moments with the world.

Are there any songs that soothe you when you need to relax and make the world stop just a bit? Let us know in the comments! We might need to give these songs a listen, too.

Movie Fans Talk About the Villains and Evil Characters Made Them Turn Against the Hero

Sometimes you root for the bad guy in a movie.

I used to think I was maybe the only person who did this, but it looks like I’m in good company with a bunch of folks who occasionally get enamored with the villains in movies and forget about the good guys and gals.

Do you do this, too?

AskReddit users weighed in on the movie villains that made them forget all about the heroes.

1. Interesting…

“Rumpelstiltskin in the “Once Upon a Time” TV series.

Depending on your viewpoint, his plans failed because 1) In that universe, Good Guys Always Win™ or 2) suckage of writers.

He was smart, tricky, beautifully manipulative, had a solid backstory that justified almost all of his actions (except for a few bits due to reason #2), and was one of the few who saw through the massive BS built around the show and its characters and could plan around it, only to have his plans fall through at the last minute, usually because of a hand-of-God last minute random thing (again, reason #2).

He should’ve been able to get everything he wanted and live happily ever after; he certainly worked harder than anyone else in that show.”

2. Oh yeah…

“Shere Khan in the live action Disney remake.

He wants to murder Mowgli because he’s afraid Mowgli will burn the jungle down. Mowgli then burns the jungle down.”

3. Hook.

“Captain Hook in the movie Hook, particularly at the end when he tries to get the kid to stay instead of going home with Peter Pan.

Like, I get it, dudes a bad guy and he’s just trying to steal the kid away when he says, “Remember how your father was never there? Look at all the things I’ve done for you.”

I came from a very neglectful home, and in rewatching this movie I remember how I would have wanted to stay with Hook so bad as a kid. In fact, if we didn’t know Hook was a villain, he looks like a much better father figure than Peter Pan until that point.”

4. This might cause some debate.

“Top Gun, Ice Man.

He’s right, Maverick is dangerous.

As I’ve gotten older…the more Maverick looks like a villain.”

5. The witch.

“Wicked Witch of the West.

We hate her cause she looks a bit gothy. But ditzy Dorothy killed her sister and went on to meddle stuff that’s none of her business. I’d be annoyed too.”

6. A great movie.

“Roy Batty in Blade Runner.

Batty wanted to gain his freedom and lead the other Nexus-6 models to safety. Instead, his dwindling ranks were hunted like rats. Although the Nexus-6 Replicants had a pretty bad reputation, Batty never gave any clues that he meant harm to the human race.

There may have been blood on his hands, but Batty only went for those directly involved with the Replicants or that were pursuing him. At the end of the day, he was just looking for answers from his creator.”

7. Poor guy.

“King Kong.

Dude’s minding his own business, living on a tropical island, and men show up, capture, and enslave him.

Fuckers deserved everything they got.”

8. A different take.

“Dinosaurs in Jurrasic Park.

The villain of Jurassic Park isn’t the dinosaurs; they’re just nature doing what comes natural. The villains are the creators, who put desire for profit and accomplishment above others’ safety. (“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should” isn’t just a meme, it’s the message of the movie.)

By the way, I used to roll my eyes at the sequels because it was unrealistic that people would put a desire for profit and fun above the safety of other people and of their own family.

Recent events have made me change my mind. People would take their children to the park that killed a large percentage of those who go, saying they “refuse to live in fear” and “have a constitutional right.”

It turns out the cheesy dinosaur movies understood human nature better than I did.”

9. Give Benny a break.

“Benny from Rent

He offered all his friends, struggling bohemians in NYC, free rent in-exchange for cancelling Maureen’s protest.”

10. He’s a villain, no doubt.

“Q from Star Trek.

Not that I hated the heroes but you just gotta love Q.

And he certainly is a villain, he kills members of the Enterprise crew and tortures entire species.”

11. The evil one.

“Dracula.

In the 90s version with Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder.”

12. Gremlins.

“The evil Gremlin.

He knew how to run a gang and party. Gizmo was a frigging pussy!”

13. Never thought I’d see this.

“Principal Rooney.

Ferris Bueller is a dick.”

14. A great villain.

“Hans Gruber from Die Hard because Alan Rickman was hot (RIP) and because Hans was so much smarter and more sophisticated than any bad guy I’d ever seen.”

15. Definitely a victim.

“Frankenstein’s monster.

The poor guy was literally born yesterday when his college-dropout, god-complex father abandoned him. Everyone hated and feared him and he had to learn everything from basic survival to human speech to reading on his own.

He was, unlike the movies, a genius and decently handsome, minus the dead eyes and paste-y complexion. He was still like 8 feet tall, and his height and haunting gaze were apparently enough to terrify everyone who saw him into a murderous frenzy.

He hid under a family’s house, and listened to their interesting and enviable life stories. He got sick of listening to people’s happy lives while he hid in fear, and befriended the family’s blind grandfather.

And then, he was attacked by the family of the man whom he had been able to call a friend for only a short time, getting shot for trying to find a friend. Then he immediately met the nephew of his father, who threatened and mocked him.

He snapped, because he realized no one ever did anything but hate and hurt him, so why should he do anything different? He killed the nephew, and framed the nephew’s maid for the murder.

What does our hero, Frankenstein, do? He lets the maid get executed because he doesn’t want to face consequences. Yeah, some hero.

Now, the monster doesn’t take it farther, he just asks Frankenstein to give him a wife/friend/someone who loves him. He knew he might have happiness and was more concerned at that point with being left alone to have a family.

What does Frankenstein do, when he hears his monster will leave him alone and they can both be rid of the anger and fear he created by playing God in the first place? He gives up halfway through and destroys the monster’s half-made wife.

Frankenstein’s Monster goes apeshit, as could reasonably be expected, and killed Frankenstein’s friend and his wife as revenge, and then fled to the north pole and offed himself because life is cruel.

So yeah, not the best guy, but between the fake doctor who has more ego than spine and systematically let all his friends die, and the monster who didn’t choose to be born and wasn’t given a bit of kindness that didn’t stab him in the back later, I pick the big guy.

The Monster wasn’t a good guy, but at least his bad actions had a reason, besides “I don’t care about other people,” and “I’m afraid of owning up for my mistakes.”

Well, there you have it.

Now we want to hear from the readers out there.

In the comments, please tell us about movies where you ended up rooting for the evil characters.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Elmo Is on Instagram, With Mom and Dad’s Permission of Course

Parents are looking for ways to entertain their kids right now. As the parent of two kids under four, I can tell you that we’re definitely on the hunt for age-appropriate entertainment…and also that we’re way more willing for that entertainment to come to us via a screen than we were a few months ago.

And listen. I know Elmo can be a little grating and he’s a Muppet and all of that, but toddlers love him. All of them, no exception, and do you know why?

Image Credit: Instagram

Because Elmo is them. Unapologetically. And everyone loves to see themselves on television right?

I’m guessing that’s also going to hold true for social media, and that kids everywhere (with their parents permission) are going to love following Elmo’s exploits there, too.

Image Credit: Instagram

As of today, you and your kiddos can follow @Elmo, though so far he’s only posted six pictures…that added up to one big picture of his face.

“Yaaaaaat Elmo’s first picture is done! Elmo is excited to be on Instagram!”

Elmo is the first of the Sesame Street friends to join the social media platform, and we can expect to see him connect with loved ones and celebrities all over the world.

He’s also expected to post about his new talk show, The Not Too Late Show with Elmowhich is set to premiere on HBO Max at the end of May 2020. On it, Elmo will interview celebrities, play music with his friends, do comedy sketches, play games, and highlight Elmo’s bedtime routine.

Don’t worry – if your kids ask why Elmo is allowed an Instagram account and they’re not, his bio clearly states that he’s running it “with the help of Elmo’s mommy and daddy.”

I think we all know how well things would go if three-year-olds ran Instagram.

I mean…probably not that different than it is now. If we’re being honest.

Have fun following @Elmo – I know we’re going to!

Artist Creates IKEA Instructions on How to Make Horror and Sci-Fi Characters

As a big fan of all things horror and science fiction, I have to say that I LOVE these illustrations.

They come to us from an illustrator named Ed Harrington who lives in Virginia.

Among other artworks, Harrington draws characters from horror and sci-fi movies as though they were instructions from IKEA.

The end products are totally awesome and also pretty funny, if you ask me.

Let’s take a look at Harrington’s work…you might never look at Freddy Krueger the same way again…

1. Don’t move, dirtbag!

RoboCop for the win!

2. Avoid this Alien at all costs.

Or else you’ll regret it…

3. One, two, Freddy’s coming for you.

Three, four, better lock your door.

4. For all the Star Wars fanatics out there.

Will he ever escape from this?!?!

5. And then there’s this guy…

Build your own Darth Vader!

6. Beware of zombies!

Especially those from The Walking Dead!

7. I heard you’re looking for Candyman…

Definitely not someone you want to run into…

8. Creepy Carrie! Creepy Carrie!

One of the movies that ruined my childhood.

9. This also ruined my childhood!

Damien from The Omen.

10. Hannibal the Cannibal.

Hello, Clarice…

11. The creepy kid from Pet Sematary!

Also known as Gage. If you haven’t seen it, you’ll never look at a scalpel or an Achilles tendon the same way ever again…

12. Cool! He-Man rules!

Masters of the Universe!

Those are awesome!

And what an amazingly original idea, right?

What other characters would you like to see Ed Harrington illustrate in this fashion?

Anthony Hopkins Did the TikTok ‘Tootsie Slide’ Challenge at 82 Years Young

The brains behind TikTok must be loving its new quarantined audience. TikTok users have exploded in number in recent months, probably due to limited access to live entertainment and socializing.

Whatever the reason, we’re loving the video platform and all the cooking demos, tricks, hacks and, especially, the dance challenges. On TikTok, nothing is too mundane that it can’t be turned into a challenge. We’re competitive even when ordered to wear masks!

Here are a BUNCH of those TikTokers doing the Tootsie Slide… on YouTube. Because that’s how things are these days.

And, as the title of this post clearly states… we had an unexpected celebrity take on one of these crazy challenges.

The latest famous person to make a splash in the TikTok dance challenge pool was Anthony Hopkins who recently uploaded a video where he tried his hand–and footwork–at the viral Tootsie Slide dance challenge. The 82 year-old star of Westworld showed us all the groovy ways he can still move in his adorable clip.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B_5–jjAA0C/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

He also challenges fellow veteran actors, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone to upload their own dance videos by quoting their lines from Terminator and Rocky.

Yes! We need to see Arnold and Sly take this on. It’s to save the world, you guys. Come on! Do it!

And Sir Anthony, we’re so glad you got bored enough to join the TikTok nation. Welcome!
