String Theory
I have challenged Fenn many times to the point where searcher's feel threatened/uncomfortable with the possibility that a lie equates to a hoax. I am not here to debate the likely hood of a hidden chest, but rather bring to light the known lies.

Fenn said he made a big ball of string that was so big it couldn't get through the bedroom door. Assume the doors were 32 inches, and that the string he collected was wool. Then the ball would have to be at least 10 ft^3 which equates to over 820 lbs.

Now I know nobody took the time to figure this out before because they trust everything Fenn says but I am sure there will lots of people checking my math now. Funny how that works.

Oh, gotta thank Sharpsburg for sending me to sped reding course, I graduated top of the class and I am on to math for dummies.

Now how many feet long is that string? I will let you think about that first.

Ok times up. Assume that string weighs 2g/m then that 820 lb string ball contains 2,440,590 feet of string or over 462 miles of string. Still think Fenn made that ball?

If you still think so, then that would require Fenn to acquire 1000 feet of string per day every single day for nearly 7 years. Still think Fenn made that ball?

RE: String Theory
I agree that it is a metaphorical ball. So.... not a lie.

RE: String Theory
there may be someone who is really good at lying trying to convince us the treasure is not at that final location

it is possible this is a hoax, but also possible that is a lie

in any case, i would drive my car there and look just to be sure

It is a lie until you can prove it is a metaphor

If you say so.

RE: String Theory
It could also be an exaggeration of truth. He did say he likes to do that. Maybe the ball of string was only as big as a basketball? To a child with all the time and work put in, it would seem huge!

Exaggeration of truth? Oh maybe the treasure is actually a kids pirate treasure chest toy?

RE: String Theory
What if the ball of string wasn't actually string at all? Maybe it was meant to represent something more... metallic?

Or, no one was interested enough to comment.

Missing metallic ball, makes sense to me!
