The Russian Sleep Experiment of the 1940s

Watch this video first. It’s just fascinating. For people with an imagination and who tend to be gullible, you might find this experiment to be feasible. Of course, it was not.  For one thing, a gas that fully occupied an enclosed chamber would have suffocated the prisoners by significantly decreasing oxygen levels. For another, since the prisoners… Continue reading The Russian Sleep Experiment of the 1940s

Murderous Men and Macabre Madness

Every hour and a quarter, 24 hours a day a murder is recorded on a U.S. police blotter. Men shoot and stab each other. They crack each other’s skulls with sash weights. They poison. They use fists.

Spiteful Spirits and Sacrificial Souls Suffer in Sinister Silence and Sincere Sorrow

We’ve heard many urban legends about murder victims and people who die quite by accident, yet remain tied to the place where they have met their untimely demise. Personally, I believe that’s a bunch of nonsense, but it is fun to entertain the possibility of ghosts, particularly those on a mission of vengeance. Ghost stories… Continue reading Spiteful Spirits and Sacrificial Souls Suffer in Sinister Silence and Sincere Sorrow

Damnable, Devastating, Distressing Decapitation

Decapitation.  First thing that comes to mind?  Do you think of the Headless Horseman?  Marie Antoinette and the infamous guillotine?  The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland bellowing, “Off with her head!” Anne Boylen and King Henry’s hunger for a son? I got onto a decapitation kick after my Marie Antoinette and the brioche blog. Naturally, anything… Continue reading Damnable, Devastating, Distressing Decapitation
