Just short stories, thoughts, and such from my mind. Beware! I tend to disappear at times on end and just pop up out of no where.

I remember seeing this short film a long time ago. Basically, this little machine sees a television with a pretty doll face. She wants to be just like what she sees on t.v, and changes her appearance. The standards get higher and higher (literally), but she tries earnestly.

You can see what happens in the end.This video leaves a powerful message about how our standards of beauty are too high and soon it becomes out of reach.

As one of the comments of the video says

"She was original but she died a copy."

WAVERLY HILL SANATORIUM

I have received so many messages requesting me to make this post. After looking into it, I realized why. 

The hospital was always dedicated to the treatment of tuberculosis patients, a disease that was fairly common in the early 20th Century.

It is estimated that as many as 63,000 people died as the sanatorium. Those deaths coupled with the reports of severe mistreatment of patients and highly questionable experiments and procedures are ingredients for a haunted location.

One of the most famous things about is the death tunnel. So many people were dying because of tuberculosis, that this tunnel was used to carry the bodies out without other patients having to see them. 

In room 502 (episode feature in ghost hunters), it was said that there was a murder/suicide of a nurse.  

Legend says the nurse found out she was pregnant by the owner of the sanatorium without being married and had contracted tuberculosis, so she hanged herself with a light bulb wire outside the room she was in at the time.

Ghost investigators who have ventured into Waverly have reported a host of strange paranormal phenomena, including voices of unknown origin, isolated cold spots and unexplained shadows. Screams have been heard echoing in its now abandoned hallways, and fleeting apparitions have been encountered.

There is nothing on God’s earth that could persuade me to set foot near an abandoned hospital or sanatorium. Nothing, ever.

It’s really not that bad. The architecture gives it a creepy-as-fuck vibe, but the greenery around it is very lush and alive for most of the year.

There’s a company currently trying to turn it into a hotel.  http://www.whas11.com/news/local/Metro-Council-clears-the-way-for-Waverly-Hills-to-become-hotel-247837171.html

Because that will end well.

VICTORIAN MOURNING JEWELRY 

During the Victorian era, it was common to wear “mourning jewelry”. This jewelry typically included hair from deceased loved one.

The deceased loved one’s hair would be carefully arranged within the brooch, often creating intricate pictures or designs.

Hair was considered to be an ideal keepsake, since it does not break down over time.

What’s the right way to face an elevator? 

Obviously this is a ridiculous question. There is none. But in the experiment above, an entire group faced the back of an elevator, making it the “right” way to stand. 

When an individual such as this man walked in, he feels awkward and so adjusts his position.

This is one of the experiments of the Asch Conformity Experiments, which demonstrate how much an individual’s actions is influenced by a group.
