Rotating Egyptian Statue In London Museum Baffles Experts [AUDIO / VIDEO]

Egyptian Mummy

 

From the strange but true category – is it “friction” or is it something else that’s causing an Egyptian statue to rotate on its own?

Staff at England’s Manchester Museum are baffled by what’s been happening to an ancient Egyptian statue.

The statue has been slowly rotating on its own, which has some staff members wondering who – or what – is behind the phenomenon.

The director of the museum says some of his staff members are convinced it’s “something else.”

Some staff members think it’s the curse of the Pharaohs.

Others argue it has to do with differential friction between the stone and the statue itself.

ABC News has more on the story.
