Suicide by Roller Coaster
The Euthanasia Coaster is an art concept for a steel roller coaster designed to kill its passengers. In 2010, it was designed and made into a scale model by Julijonas Urbonas, a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art in London. Urbonas, who has worked at an amusement park, stated that the goal of his concept roller coaster is to take lives “with elegance and euphoria”. As for practical applications of his design, Urbonas mentioned “euthanasia or execution”. John Allen, who served as president of the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, inspired Urbonas with his description of the ideal roller coaster as one that “sends out 24 people and they all come back dead”. As a hypothetical means of euthanasia, the design led to concern from anti-euthanasia associations such as Care Not Killing.
This is the Buckley Family. The children’s names were Susan and John. As a Halloween joke, all the kids in the neighborhood were going to get a dummy and pretend to chop its head off. The Buckley children thought it would be hilarious to actually murder their mother, so when the kids walked up the the door, they got an axe and slaughtered her. Once everyone figured out what they had really done, they called the police, but the kids were long gone by then. The only picture of them was this photo, taken by a trick or treater. The mothers body was later found half eaten.
Haemolacria is a real physical condition that causes people to actually cry tears of blood. The tears of people suffering from this condition may range from being just tinged red, to entirely made of blood. While the exact cause or cure for this condition is not clear, it is known to be a symptom of several blood-related diseases or tumors.
The Monster Study was a stuttering experiment on 22 orphan children in Davenport, Iowa, in 1939 conducted by Wendell Johnson at the University of Iowa. Johnson chose one of his graduate students, Mary Tudor, to conduct the experiment and he supervised her research. After placing the children in control and experimental groups, Tudor gave positive speech therapy to half of the children, praising the fluency of their speech, and negative speech therapy to the other half, belittling the children for every speech imperfection and telling them they were stutterers. Many of the normal speaking orphan children who received negative therapy in the experiment suffered negative psychological effects and some retained speech problems during the course of their life. Dubbed “The Monster Study” by some of Johnson’s peers who were horrified that he would experiment on orphan children to prove a theory, the experiment was kept hidden for fear Johnson’s reputation would be tarnished in the wake of human experiments conducted by the Nazis during World War II. The University of Iowa publicly apologized for the Monster Study in 2001.
A notorious Nazi doctor known as the ‘Angel of Death’ is behind an alarming number of twins born in a small Brazilian town, a historian has claimed.
Josef Mengele was an SS physician in Auschwitz concentration camp where in a bid to create a master race for Adolf Hitler he carried out genetic experiments to find the key to producing twins.
The aim was to artificially increase the Aryan birthrate.
In 1945 he fled the advancing Red Army and made his way to South America.
It is there that the medic, who is believed to have been responsible for up to 400,000 deaths in medical experiments at Auschwitz, may have succeeded in his mission.
Baffled scientists had been struggling to come up with a reason for the high proportion twins in the tiny Brazilian town of Candido Godoi - most of them blond-haired and blue-eyed.
A staggering one in five pregnancies there have resulted in the birth of twins - the usual rate is one in 80
Argentine historian Jorge Camarasa has now come up with an astonishing theory.
In a new book, Mengele: The Angel Of Death In South America, he has pieced together the Nazi doctor’s later years after his flight in the face of the Red Army advance.
The Russian forces liberated Auschwitz on January 27, 1945.
The residents of the Brazilian town claim Mengele made repeated visits there in the early 1960s.
He first claimed to be a vet but then offered medical treatment to the women, providing them with strange potions and tablets and asking for blood samples.
After spending time in Argentina and Paraguay, in 1963 Mengele started making regular trips to the predominantly German farming community in Brazil.
Mr Camarasa claims it was soon after that the birthrate of twins began to spiral.
The Busby’s stoop chair or the Dead Man’s Chair is an allegedly haunted oak chair that was cursed by the murderer Thomas Busby before his execution byhanging in North Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Busby was arrested, tried and condemned to death after he murdered his father-in-law Daniel Auty in 1702. Since then 63 people, who reportedly sat in the chair, died shortly afterwards The execution’s site was said to be haunted by Busby’s ghost.
In 1972 the chair was ultimately hung from the ceiling of Thirsk Museum to prevent occupancy
One day at harvest time, according to William of Newburgh during the reign of King Stephen (1135–1154), the villagers of Woolpit discovered two children, a brother and sister, beside one of the wolf pits that gave the village its name. Their skin was green, they spoke an unknown language, and their clothing was unfamiliar. Ralph reports that the children were taken to the home of Richard de Calne. Ralph and William agree that the pair refused all food for several days until they came across some green beans, which they consumed eagerly. The children gradually adapted to normal food and in time lost their green colour.The boy, who appeared to be the younger of the two, became sickly and died shortly after he and his sister were baptised.
After learning to speak English the children – Ralph says just the surviving girl – explained that they came from a land where the sun never shone, and the light was like twilight. William says the children called their home St Martin’s Land; Ralph adds that everything there was green. According to William the children were unable to account for their arrival in Woolpit; they had been herding their father’s cattle when they heard a loud noise and suddenly found themselves by the wolf pit where they were found. Ralph says that they had become lost when they followed the cattle into a cave, and after being guided by the sound of bells eventually emerged into our land.

Polybius is a supposed arcade game featured in an Internet urban legend. According to the story, the Tempest-style game was released to the public in 1981, and caused its players to go insane, causing them to suffer from intense stress, horrific nightmares, and even suicidal tendencies. A short time after its release, it supposedly disappeared without a trace. Not much evidence for the existence of such a game has ever been discovered.
Omayra Sánchez was a 13-year-old victim of the 1985 eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano, which erupted on November 13, 1985, in Armero, Colombia causing massive lahars which killed nearly 25,000. Trapped for three days in water, concrete, and other debris before she died, Omayra captured the attention of the media as volunteer workers told of a girl they were unable to save. Videos of her communicating with workers, smiling and making gestures to video cameras circulated around the media.
Omayra was trapped up to her neck in water and the debris of her home for nearly 60 hours before she died, either of exposure, gangrene, or hypothermia. Omayra suffered through nearly 3 nights of agony. The teenage girl was scared, and often prayed or cried. On the third night, Omayra began hallucinating, saying that she did not want to be late for school. At some point she asked the people to leave her so they could rest.
This was the last photo taken of Omayra just only a few hours before she died.
When 28-year old Artyom Sidorkin underwent surgery to remove a suspected cancerous tumor that was causing him extreme chest pain, medical staff in Izhevsk in the Urals, Russia, were startled to see a tiny tree growing inside Sidorkin’s lung. The five-centimeter fir tree branch was discovered when surgeon, Vladimir Kamashev, took part of the man’s lung for a biopsy. Dr. Kamashev recalled: “I thought I was hallucinating; I asked my assistant to have a look: ‘Come and see this — we’ve got a fir tree here.’ He nodded in shock. I blinked three times as I was sure I was seeing things.” Doctors think he might have inhaled a seed, which was deposited into his lung tissue. The seed sprouted there, and grew until it started touching capillaries in the tissue, causing Sidorkin extreme pain. The branch was later removed. “It was very painful. But to be honest, I did not feel any foreign object inside me,” said Sidorkin of his strange experience. “I’m so relieved it’s not cancer.”
This case mirrors that of a 2007 incident in which Chinese doctors operating on a ten-month-old girl with breathing problems found a blade of grass growing in her right lung.
So the other night myself, Jessie, and Savannah decided to drink and surf the horror movie section on netflix. That’s when we stumbled upon this little gem. Note the sarcasm. I don’t actually have words to describe how bad this movie was so I’ll just point out a few of the gargantuan amount of things this movie did wrong. For one the inside of the house looked like the set of a high school play. Secondly, if a demon can crawl on your walls what does putting a string with a bell attached to it in the bottom of your doorways do? Honest, within the first hour of the movie the family finds dozens of footprints on their walls and ceiling and what do they do? They fashion a little bit of string and a bell as if its not gonna notice that. Lastly and this is the end all be all of awful…GHOST RAPE!!!! I shit you not this girl gets raped twice, maybe three times by this ghost in the whole movie. How does that even happen? I thought ghost struggled to find enough energy to move a ball across the floor but apparently this mac daddy can get a raging woody and go ham on some young girl. I just, I can’t, this movie was just pure dog shit. Not even laughable. Please head this warning and save your money and your mind and never watch this film.
Katoli World is situated in the Dakeng Scenic area just outside of Taichung, Taiwan. Opened in the mid eighties, it enjoyed moderate success as one of the few theme parks on the island of Taiwan to host a rollercoaster (two). The park was closed after a massive earthquake on September 21st, 1999. Thousands of people were killed during the quake but nobody inside the park as it struck after opening hours. Large areas of the park were destroyed and it was forced to close. A place once vivid with young laughter is now slowly turning to rust.
Serial Killers and Satanism
Most serial murderers who are involved in cult-related homicides do not appear to be particularly advanced in satan worship. Several appear to be self-styled satanists who dabble in the occult, but the extent of their involvement is difficult to measure.
- Donald Harvey, believed to have methodically murdered 58 victims in at least three different hospitals, had books on satan worship in his possessions but refused to comment about the material.
- Richard Ramirez, The Nigh Stalker in California, ardently proclaimed his ties to satanism by displaying his pentagram tattooed on his left palm, shouting “Hail Satan!” when leaving court, and listening incessantly to the AC/DC Highway to Hell album. Part of his ritualistic attacks included inscribing satanic symbols in the homes of victims.
- Henry Lee Lucas, who roamed the southern states, confessed his involvement with satan worship. Allegedly, he and his partner Otis Toole were paid to kidnap children to be used for human-sacrifices, prostitution, and black-market sales. The duo were believed to be members of the satanic group Hand of Death.
- Robin Gecht and three other young men terrorized Chicago in the early 1980s by abducting, mutilating, and killing several young women. In a form of satan worship they were believed to have cut up animal and human body parts for sacrfice on a makeshift alter and then cannibalized some of the remains.
- Robert Berdella of Kansas City publicly admitted in 1989 to the ritual tortures and homosexual murders of several young men but denied any connection to satan worship even though evidence indicated otherwise.
An expert on cults reasoned that:
“…one can see that if a serial killer picks and chooses beliefs that fit his aberrant needs, mixes this with signs, symbols, and machinations of satanism, conceives personal rituals and adds to all of this a liberal use of drugs, a frightening picture emerges: an evil, drug-lubricated butchering machine who justifies his behavior by exalting Satan.”
The fact remains that most serial killers have no ties to satan worship before or during their murder careers. Perhaps offenders mention satanism when they are captured simply to add to the already sensational nature of the homicides. Perhaps the police and the media overreact and refer to satanism when they are confronted by the work of a serial killer. Perhaps there are certain types of serial killers who can be described as cult-driven, whereas others are influenced only superficially by satanism. In the cases off those who do become involved in satanic worship and serial killing, we should determine which behaviour started first.
My older brother Seth has always been especially sensitive to these types of things. One of his best experiences was in the Athens State University’s old theater, where many strange things have been reported happening before. Athens State University was originally an all girl’s college. During the civil war, a woman received news of her boyfriend’s death. She threw herself from the 3rd story and hit an open window on the second floor, horribly mauling her body. In the theater specifically, a young woman was playing piano when her boyfriend- trying to play a practical joke- fell from the catwalk above the stage and onto the piano, killing himself. When my brother was about 22, maybe 5 or 6 years ago, he was in a play that took place in the Athens State University theater. One of his close friends, Jon, Had come to see the play. After the performance they decided to explore the theater in search of a different bathroom besides the already crowded one. They walked up a grand staircase to the second floor of the theater. The second floor is basically a long hallway where there are spare rooms used to store props and costumes. As Seth and Jon walked up the stairs they started to feel the air become cooler. The higher they went, the colder it became. Which is strange considering that it was mid summer and there was no air conditioning because of the age of the theater. When they made their way to the top of the stairs, Seth looked down the hallway to see a white mist collected at the corner end of the hallway. Seth’s and Jon’s glasses then fogged over because of the temperature change. They stood completely still as the mist began to clarify into the shape of a crouching woman. Her hair was shoulder length and curved out at the end like a 60’s style hairdo. She wore a knee length dress with white buckles shoes and an apron. She was crouched in the corner, sitting on her ankles, with her head on her arms supported by her knees. Jon, without saying a word began to take quick steps toward the crouching woman. Seth stopped him before he made it more than 3 steps. After Jon was stopped the woman stood up, brushed the wrinkles out of her apron, turned into a doorway and disappeared, all without making any eye contact with Seth or Jon. After this, Seth and Jon hauled ass down the stairs and into the main lobby. This is a story that Seth has told me many times and I’m glad I now have somewhere to document it.
