    Elementary, my dear It Is Fake!




    Well, probably I have been reading too many bad novels lately.

    Since last year was light on "big" investigations,
    I caught myself wondering, what if one applied the same skill
    and google-fu to another kind of mystery?

    And since, you guess it, the new Sherlock Holmes movie has me
    dusting off my Conan Doyle, I wonder:

    What about if we good bullies tried to solve some historical mystery,
    for a chance?

    Since I couldn't find any good historical martial arts cases,
    I picked this one here - read about it last summer, and frankly,
    it kind of interests me:

    Suspicious disappearance

    So, what would you say about this?

    Come, come! The game is afoot!

    Let's have a look at the physical evidence of foul play.

    Oh drat there is none.

    Case closed. Where'd you hide the snuff box, Watson?

      If Edison was involved, even tangentially... that's evidence enough of fucking foul play for me. The man was a massive fucking cunt.

        "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently.

        Well, foul play so far as somebody ENTERS a train, but does not EXIT it.
        When I enter a train, exiting it again is an integral part of the traveling experience, as should have been for this gentleman.

        So, what happened?

        Four theories about his demise. Just one can be the true one.

        Which one? Any truth is better than indefinite doubt.

          Can't the man exit the train without being seen?

            Exactly, my dear Rabbit!

            The question is just, where?
            And why would he do it?

            I think I will try and get a roadmap of the route, and about how many stops are made. - Or, better, were, over 120 years ago.

              What the hell is this about again?
              I thought we went over this at least 4 times already.

                Sure.

                A couple of hired thugs pitching him out the window into a large body of water would do the trick.

                  Or he walked off at a stop and vanished.

                  I think it's overly logical to think that it's not possible to prove he didn't in fact, just walk off the train without being seen.

                  People do sneak out the back door, you know.

                    Fair enough, but why?

                    The guy had just invented the movie camera.
                    Which reason would there be to leave that behind?

                    Also, he was there to do a presentation.
                    Chances are people would have been looking for him.

                    But so you get me right - I want to know what happened to him. Exactly.

                    So, whatever seems likely, please elaborate it, based on factual knowledge and evidence.


                    Another question would be, are the police files on the matter publicly available?

                    After 120 years, one would guess so.

                      Since we are speculating...depression...mental illness...fear of fame?

                        He surely did not realize that it could be used for porn.

                          Perhaps he did, and was late to exit the train, hidden in a secluded room pleasuring himself to risque daguerreotypes.

                            Maybe he suffered some sort of "A Beautiful Mind" schizoid delusion and jumped off the train midroute into a river in the wilderness, and his body took a long time to float downstream until it reached a more populated area.

                            He was likely still traveling after the train ride, but he was probably just a corpse at the time.

                              I wonder who had to write dialogue for the early silent porn.
