    The "fatum project" seems to be urban exploring / geocaching with a paranormal twist:

    https://github.com/fatum2/fatum-en/blob/master/docs/fatum_theory.txt

    As someone given to aimless wandering, and also as a fan of Robert Anton Wilson-style experiments, I was thinking of giving this a try -- though I'm leery of retrieving coordinates from a remote server which could be running any code whatsoever. I doubt it's more malicious than "Pokemon Go," however -- in the worst case, a simple waste of time, and at very least a way of going to locations I haven't discovered on my own.

    Anybody done any experiments along these lines or have any thoughts about geolocation algorithms like this?
