 Hello! Today’s rabbit hole subject: Kaspar Hauser.

 If you’re interested in bizarre stories about mysterious people, Kaspar Hauser is a good one. Was he a savant? An imposter? The truth is out there, somewhere. Aside from that, he was a fairly good artist, which I didn’t know until I saw this Public Domain Review’s post. (Also, Kaspar has inspired many songs, like Suzanne Vega’s “Wooden Horse.”

As a spinoff, Hauser’s Wikipedia entry links to a List of Unsolved Deaths throughout history, which is also fascinating stuff.
