This week on Hashtag History, we are discussing Santa Cruz's infamous Mystery Spot. The Mystery Spot is roughly 150 feet of WTF? It is this small location hidden up in the redwood forests where the laws of gravity don't appear to exist. It’s where you can stand on what appears to be a level table but, once you are standing on top of it, your body takes on a 45 degree angle. Or you can place a ball on what - again, appears to be a level surface - and this ball will mysteriously slide upwards and off of the surface. OR you can be standing next to a five year old who is clearly shorter than you but, once you step onto what appears to be - AGAIN - a level plank, you are suddenly the shorter of the pair.

So what's the deal? Listen to this week's episode to find out.
