Hitler is like UFOs or "life on Mars". Always better to *say* you're looking, but never to really admit you've *found* something.

see Antarctica

It's quite credible that we are not alone in the universe, and that life may once have existed on Mars. But Hitler died in the bunker. His skull is in an archive in Moscow.

How many doubles did Hitler have?

Did they get the skull or dental records reliably on record?

The Russians encouraged the notion that the west helped Hitler to escape.

Having "his skull" would seem to argue against that notion.

Cooper's Treasure takes some beating in the BS stakes.

All those ghost ones on channel 17 or something where they wander around in the dark with night cameras on.

Coopers Treasure - an insane US astronaut mapped out sunken Spanish shipwrecks which he noticed whilst orbiting the Earth. The 'map' has come into the hands of some dude who has dedicated his life to this - I think the most I've seen him find was a cannonball in the Caribbean. But this warranted another series... and another one.

He could see sunken ships from Space? Chinny reckon.

'Shhhh, be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting Hitlers' .

The skull may have been a woman's

He could see unexplained 'dark patches' in the Caribbean

AdonisBlue - 03 Aug 2021 17:37:08 (#13 of 25)

Those would be reefs

Arjuna - 03 Aug 2021 17:39:00 (#14 of 25)

did they hunt him on horseback with a pack of beagles?

or is that banned?

widenation - 03 Aug 2021 17:39:25 (#15 of 25)

This guy knew his shit.

Is the Discovery channel still going strong then?

brooklyn - 09 Aug 2021 21:36:29 (#17 of 25)

let's recall that Hitler was born in 1889.

I think he's pretty dead.

Atticus - 09 Aug 2021 21:49:32 (#18 of 25)

But his legacy remains.

The slave power unleashed on all humanity.

Any doc with 'Hitler' in the title is usually rubbish.

There was an American WW2 doc on Yesterday that pronounced Gen Auchinleck as 'Oshinleck' and referred to Gibraltar as an island.

There was one following a bunch of American fundies stomping around Turkey looking for Noah's Ark.

The earnest group prayers before each day's hunting were cringey enough, but the highlight was when they discovered some huge timbers buried in a hillside.

They were excitedly digging them out one by one and examining them when a couple of Turkish police turned up in a Landrover and asked them why they were wrecking the anti-erosion works.
