The island known as the “island of madness”, “hell” and “the most haunted place on Earth” is being sold!
Here’s a quick, history behind it:
The plagued people were shipped off to Poveglia Island, a small, secluded land mass that floats between Venice and Lido. There, people lived out the last of their wretched lives together until they died.
Since the island already reeked of death, the next time an epidemic came along, barely alive bodies were dumped there and burned in mass graves.
In the 20s, a mental hospital was built to welcome the island’s newest “guests,” or anybody that showed symptoms of any sort of sickness, physical or mental.
Basically, if you had an itch, away you went to Poveglia where you’d sink your feet into the soil (half dirt, half human ash) and be in the company of over 100K diseased ghosts.
It didn’t help when the place was converted into a hospital for the mentally ill in 1922. Rumor has it, the hospital was home to a number of crude lobotomies, performed by a doctor who’d been driven mad by the ghosts. He later flung himself off the bell tower.
The Italian government is now offering a 99-year lease to whomever’s brave enough to take it over. The italian government thinks it would make a great hotel destination!
"Build a hotel" they said. "It will be fun" they said.
Photo of a real-life zombie?
Nope. But still interesting.
This is a photo of one of the ‘zombies of Toraja’. Toraja is small Indonesian village whose funeral practices include the belief that certain magical persons can make the dead walk again. This is considered a benefit as funerals are often expensive. There is often a lengthy gap between an individual’s death and their formal burial. They are often placed in a temporary grave. Once the proper funeral arrangements have been made, the corpse can be raised and made to walk to it’s final resting place.
This is a photo from the ritual, where a corpse has been posed before it’s “walk” to it’s new grave. A lot of people are sharing it (like this FearNet article) and claiming it’s proof of IRL zombies. It’s not. But it does show a very interesting and unique funeral practice. And that, to me, is more interesting than zombies.
AU The Fault In Our Stars where Hazel Grace succumbs to the cancer and dies and in the last scene all you see is Augustus standing out side with a cigarette between his lips and a hand slowly reaching up to light it.

so my art teacher assigned us to do a chalk pastel still life of fruits n shit and I was like “no”
so I drew a banana instead.
and my teacher came by like “you need to have more than one fruit in your still life”

and so I put that cherry on top of the banana and titled it “Banana Split Without The Ice Cream Because Life Is Full Of Disappointments: By Fall Out Boy" and I turned that shit in.
My art teacher just started laughing out loud in the middle of class
