Nightmare fuel

I'm a pretty tolerant man, but I really really hate this stuff:

This one looks like it was made from parts found in the morgue.


Wait, why does this boy have a hole in his back?!


If there's one thing that gives me the freaking creeps, it's ventriloquist dummies.

They found the other butcher shop clerks buried under Jenkin's sycamore tree.

(Ask me about the one antique dummy at that auction years ago that wouldn't stop looking at me... no matter where in the room I moved to. Brrrr.)

WAIT, HIS LIPS REALLY AREN'T MOVING!

Anyway, HERE'S a Flickr dump of pictures of more ventriloquist dummies than I can safely handle... have fun.

Hold me.

I'll be sleeping in the corner of my room with the lights on and two machetes in my hands...

Texting? They were doing that 100 years ago!


Think texting is a phenomenon of the modern world? Think again:

In their conversations telegraphers use a system of abbreviations which enables them to say considerably more in a certain period of time then they otherwise could. Their morning greeting to a friend in a distant city is usually “g. m.,” and the farewell for the evening, “g. n.,” the letters of course standing for good morning and good night. The salutation may be accompanied by an inquiry by one as to the health of the other, which would be expressed thus: “Hw r u ts mng?” And the answer would be: “I’m pty wl; hw r u?” or “I’m nt flg vy wl; fraid I’ve gt t mlaria.”

I want this

I recently ran across this photo of an astonishing library:


so I did some research and discovered it's the Public Library of Cincinnati, Ohio, built in 1874. I'd love to poke around those dusty shelves... such a wondrous place!

Manager Jared's Avengers!

I drew the Avengers...poorly. But I drew them out of sheer excitement and I thought I'd share with all of you. Iron Man's hand is backwards, but it was overlooked because of the flurry of passion, unstoppable.
