How extraordinary the discovery of Iceman

I went to Australian National Maritime Museum to see Iceman exhibition. Iceman is a wet mummy who was alive at 5300 B.C. and scientists discover him at the high mountain at Italy. It's amazing how well his whole body preserve and how much stuff he brought with him. History always can teach us something. Image this, where and when you want to go if scientists invent time machine?

If someone invented a time machine, I think I would spend the rest of my life exploring the past. History fascinates me. I literally have at least 30 history books at home.

Historical mysteries fascinate me too. There are so many unanswered questions that will probably never be answered. I was reading a few weeks back that they're not sure if Edmund Hillary was the first person to reach the top of Mount Everest. There were two climbers who were spotted close to the top but they completely disappeared and were never seen again. No-one knows if they made it to the top or not. People have been searching for their camera, hoping to process the film and see if there are photographs of the top in it but they can't find it anywhere. Not knowing the full picture is more interesting to me than knowing every detail.
