Another follow-up post...
To continue in the inappropriate and disturbing vein, check out these sites and crazy issues.
1. Lizzie Borden' home is a bed and breakfast! Go on, book a vacation. Stay where a young girl's parents were killed with multiple hatchet blows. In the morning, "
Mütter Museum, College of Physicians, Philadelphia. We aren't supposed to stare or question when we see someone with a physical deformity. (In truth, we should treat them like a so-called "normal" person (what is that, anywa?) but not pretend the deformity isn't there.) But do we need an entire museum showcasing medical specimens from conjoined twins, the brain of a murderer, and full skeletons of giants and dwarves. Go ahead, click and look. That's why it's there now, isn't it?
3. Bog People--bodies of murder victims thousands of years old. This one actually has archaeological and historical value. Were they sacrifices? Murder victims? Gallows bodies?
4. Cemetary Statues--creepy ones. This one is harmless because the images were put there to be seen. They are memories of someone. And what that says about those "someones"...well, I don't know. Go see for yourself.
5. Another fascinating one in a morbid fashion: hearses over time. How did Elvis get to the cemetary? What beautiful wheels used in 1900! Ronald Reagan's was (surprise!) conservative.
