1 Cicado 3301


When it comes to internet mysteries, it doesn’t get more mysterious that Cicado 3301. The hype all began on January 5th, 2012, when a 4chan user with a concealed identity posted a strange and cryptic message which read:

“Hello. We are looking for highly intelligent individuals. To find them, we have devised a test. There is a message hidden in this image. Find it, and it will lead you on the road to finding us. We look forward to meeting the few that will make it all the way through. Good luck.” Of course this sent the internet into a frenzy as numerous people tried to crack this intriguing message. Those who followed the clues even found themselves being led off the internet as they were required to find posters that popped up on all ends of the globe.

A month later another message was posted by the 4chan user, stating that they had now found all the individuals they were looking for and that their search had come to an end. However, to this day no one knows who these individuals are or what became of them. Many believe Cicada 3301 is a recruitment method used by the CIA or another global spy agency. Others believe the post sought out the most intelligent individuals to take part in some type of new world order. Every year since, Cicada 3301 has posted a new message on the 5th of January; to this day, no one has ever heard from any of the winners.
