24. The Dancing plague of 1518
Not all X-Files are scary – some are just plain weird to the point of funny, yet remain unsolved to this very day, like this one...........
In July of 1518, Frau Troffea of Strasbourg, France (then part of the Holy Roman Empire) began to dance frantically in the streets. Within a month, 400 people began to do the same, eventually collapsing and dying of heart attack, exhaustion, and stroke.

if they had ergot poisoning aka lsd not everybody would be dancing at once, lsd makes everyone act differently not exactly the same.

As for the Texas Hammer (and other artifacts found in rock that don't belong either due to time and/or place), when rock is molten, does that effect dating of that rock? I don't know and I ask because if the rock's age (as far as dating methods are concerned) stays the same, couldn't new items be placed in old molten rock, left to cool and found later? Could this (whether innocent coincidence/mistake or deliberate hoax) explain this type of artifact?
