The mysterious Shugborough Inscription, which has baffled scholars for centuries, may have finally been decoded. The inscription, which consists of a series of letters and symbols, is located on a 18th-century monument in Staffordshire, England. One theory is that it is a code that leads to the location of the Holy Grail. However, the most likely explanation is that it is a masonic code that has yet to be cracked. Italian police say they were able to catch a mafia member with the help of Google Maps. The police were looking for the man in a remote area of Sicily and were able to find him by looking at the Google Maps images of the area. - - -
