The Wyoming Incident

The Wyoming incident was the 2006 high jacking of a news station that broadcasted to all of Niobrara County in northeastern Wyoming. The transmit ion lasted just under six minutes, the footage showing disembodied heads making strange faces, cryptic text, and eerie music.

This incident might have come and gone, had it not been for complaints coming in from the people who witnessed the transmission. The claims of the effected were nausea, vomiting and headaches. Some even claimed to have hallucinations. The broadcast appeared to be causing these effects, as it was transmitted at 17 and 19 Hz, a frequency that is said to have similar effects on the senses.

The people who transmitted this broadcast have never been caught…and that’s because it was a hoax… to be more specific, it was a hoax that was an ARG. If you don’t know what an ARG is, it is basically a game that uses the Internet as a platform for a type of scavenger hunt.

If you want to know to know more about this Internet myth, I have included link to a statement by the creator in the info box. You can hear the makers of “The Wyoming Incident” explain themselves in their own words. Enjoy.
