The 40 Most Breathtaking Abandoned Places In The World

I think you mean locations for the next silent hill.

I want to live in that little red house, accessible only by the long, silent wooden bridge, with my monster cats guarding the end.

Lizzie Borden House Bed and Breakfast

The house where the grisly Borden murders took place is available to rent as a bed and breakfast or for tours. The furniture is all of the time and you can get a close up view of the crime scenes.

The famous mummy of 2-year-old Rosalia Lombardo is often called the “blinking mummy,” because when the light changes in the room it can appear as though her slightly-opened lids are blinking.

JACK THE RIPPER IDENTITY FINALLY REVEALED AFTER 126 YEARS THANKS TO DNA EVIDENCE

DNA evidence has uncovered the identity of Jack The Ripper, and it’s none of the romantic suspects – such as the Queen’s surgeon Sir William Gull, or artist Walter Sickert.

The most infamous serial killer in history has been identified as a relatively underwhelming Polish madman called Aaron Kosminski, who was committed to a mental asylum at the height of the Ripper hysteria.

Kosminski was actually a suspect at the time of the murders, even named by Chief Inspector Donald Swanson in notes the policemen made, but as the myth and legend of the murders grew over more than 125 years, so too did the list of more fanciful suspects.

The breakthrough came when a scientist, using cutting-edge technology, matched DNA evidence on a shawl found at one of the crime scenes with descendants of Kosminski.

Dr Jari Louhelainen, a Finnish expert in historic DNA, was brought in to study a shawl found with Catherine Eddowes, the second-last ‘confirmed’ victim of the Ripper, whose body was discovered in Mitre Square on September 30.

Dr Louhelainen is quoted as saying: ‘It has taken a great deal of hard work, using cutting-edge scientific techniques which would not have been possible five years ago.

‘Once I had the profile, I could compare it to that of the female descendant of Kosminski’s sister, who had given us a sample of her DNA swabbed from inside her mouth.

‘The first strand of DNA showed a 99.2 per cent match, as the analysis instrument could not determine the sequence of the missing 0.8 per cent fragment of DNA. On testing the second strand, we achieved a perfect 100 per cent match.’

Witches

Witchcraft (also called witchery or spellcraft) is the use of magical faculties, most commonly for religious, divinatory or medicinal purposes.

The belief in and the practice of magic has been present since the earliest human cultures and continues to have an important religious and medicinal role in many cultures today.

"Magic is central not only in ‘primitive’ societies but in ‘high cultural’ societies as well…"  X

A woman who discovered Ikea bags packed with skulls and human bones in the Klackeberga church in Sweden. The church is reportedly using the durable bags to store the remains of around 80 people who were once buried under the floorboards. They were dug up when parts of the church were remodelled to allow wheelchair access.

I don’t even live in Japan but I’m a little freaked out right now.

I didn’t compile this list, I got it from here

Here’s the Tomino’s Hell poem for those of you brave enough to read it out loud.

Also the original Cow’s Head story, which supposedly makes you die from fright is said to have no known copies around. 

Teke teke will sometimes be sitting in a window, but once she catches you staring, she will jump out and chase you. Run as fast as you can.

Kuchisake Onna is a dead-end if you keep saying yes. When she asks you if she is pretty, you can say “You’re average,” “You’re so-so,” or “Am I pretty?” And escape when she is confused.

Teke teke makes my heart race. I dunno, just imagine it slowly crawling towards you in the middle of the night. Yikes.
