If you are into the bizarre and museums like me, than one place you NEED to visit is the Mutter Museum in Pennsylvania. 

It’s a medical museum filled with oddities.  Some things it has are

  • the body of the soap lady (1st picture). she’s called the soap lady because her body turned into a soap-like substance called adipocere
  • a wax model of a woman with a horn growing out of her forehead 
  • the tallest skeleton on display in North America
  • numerous preserved organs and body parts


10/10 a must see spot for any bizarre/creepy fan

Those Poor Bastards - Forgive Me Matilda

Every word was spoke in whisper
Every dream was dreamt alone
Firelight it burned so dimly
Underneath the hungry moon

Forgive me Matilda, dear
Forgive me Matilda, dear

Summer came and so did Autumn,
Falling leaves of red and gold
Starving men and wounded daughters,
Crawling husks of blood and bone

Forgive me Matilda, dear
Forgive me Matilda, dear

Lakes went dry and crops were failing
Corn turned black and hearts turned cold
We thought your blood would soothe God’s anger,
It only made the sickness grow

Forgive me Matilda, dear
Forgive me Matilda, dear

I romanticized you

to the point where

the knives you

into my skin

began to look

 Cupid’s arrows.

Imagine this:
Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.

Imagine this:
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.

Imagine this:
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.

Imagine this:
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.

Imagine this:
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.

The siphons at either end of the Makassar Salp (Pegea pacifica) can dilate sufficiently to allow other animals to crawl or swim inside the body (1). Typically such an intruder is ejected during propulsion, but occasionally may become lodged. In these circumstances, the salp’s usual recourse is to expel all water and contract at both ends, suffocating the creature in a vacuum (2). The salp may itself die in the process, and then harden — resulting in an attractive, semi-opaque object shaped like a bird’s egg (3). “Mermaid grenades,” as these floating trinkets are often called, are commonly gleaned by Coelobonese fishermen and sold as souvenirs.
