On July 12, 1993 the flood waters that were ravaging the Missouri River Valley topped the levee at the south entrance of the cemetery and dug a “blue hole” in the center of the cemetery 90 ft. deep and destroying two-thirds of the cemetery. When the water receded two-thirds of the cemetery was destroyed. It was determined that 793 of the 1576 burials were displaced. With the help of the Missouri Funeral Directors Association, under the leadership of Dean Snow, Ray County Coroner, 645 remains were recovered. 120 of the recovered bodies were identified and reburied. The 525 bodies that were not identified were buried in a section of the cemetery now referred to as the Unknown Section. A Memorial Service was held December 5, 1993 to remember these loved ones.

Koska olemme aivan hulluna vanhaan ja outoon tavaraan emme voi olla mainostamatta hieman

suosikkikauppaamme Götan Maailmaa.

Kävimme visiitillä Helsingissä tässä muutamana viikonloppuna, ja olihan meidän käytävä hieman ihastelemassa

Thomasin outojen tavaroiden kokoelmaa.

Matkaamme lähtikin uusi lemmikki, ja monta upeaa ideaa.

Tässä vielä kuvia kaupalta

hivelemään mielikuvitustanne ;D

Ajan taakseen jättämiä tavaroita, meille
merkityksettömiä, ehkä yhdentekeviä.

734599_434745756599833_1769482957_nAjattele mitä ne kätkevät sisälleen, patinoituneen
pintansa alle, monien käsien kertoman.

Tummaa lämpöä ja läheisyyttä, pysähtynyttä
hiljaisuutta. Ehkäpä pieni palanen kotiin vietäväksi,
muistoksi menneitä ajoilta.

Tämän kun näin kirppiksen nurkassa niin hyvä etten lähteny juoksemaan sen kimppuun. Vanha, mutta todella hyväkuntoinen  Suokukko-asetelma missä pojat esittelevät soidinpukujaan kaulukset pörhöllään. ”Tres Amigos” 😀

Saimme käsiimme aidon sikiönkallo replikan josta kyhäilemme nyt innokkaana hyvin toden tuntuisia kipsivaloksia.

Ispiroiduin heti tekemään kirppariltä löytyneestä suloisesta tyttönukesta

1800-lukuisen surupukuun asustautuneen sikiönkallo nuken, söpöä 😀

Nuken asulle ei juurikaan muuta tarvittu kuin sipaisu maalia.

On a dark and creepy island in the canals of Xochimico near Mexico City sits what might be the world’s strangest and scariest tourist attraction ever.

However, this sad island was never meant to be a stop on tourists’ holiday itineraries.

The Island of the Dolls was dedicated to the lost soul of a poor little girl who met her fate too soon.

The Island of the Dolls (Isla de las Munecas) sits in the canals south of Mexico City and is the current home of hundreds of terrifying, mutilated dolls.

Their severed limbs, decapitated heads, and blank eyes adorn trees, fences and nearly every available surface.

The dolls appear menacing even in the bright light of midday, but in the dark they are particularly haunting.

Not surprisingly, the island’s origins lie in tragedy. The story goes that the island’s only inhabitant,

Don Julian Santana, found the body of a drowned child in the canal some 50 years ago. He was haunted by her death,

so when he saw a doll floating by in the canal soon after, he hung it in a tree to please the girl.

He hoped to both appease her tortured soul and protect the island from further evil.

One doll in a tree, however, was not enough to ease Santana’s troubled mind.

He continued to fish dolls and doll parts out of the canal whenever he saw them,

hanging each one carefully on the island.

There weren’t enough canal dolls to satisfy Santana’s tortured spirit,

so he began scavenging more from trash heaps on his rare trips away from home.

Later in life, he began trading his home-grown fruits and vegetables for dolls.

Many stories have been associated with the island over the years.

A popular tale was that Don Julian had gone mad and believed the dolls to be real children who he pulled from the canal and tried to revive.

But the truth, as told by his family members who now run the island as a tourist attraction,

is that Don Julian simply believed the island was haunted by the spirit of the little girl.

For reasons only known to Don Julian himself, he believed that he could make the dead girl happy and keep evil at bay by hanging discarded dolls in all of the island’s trees.

The story took a particularly sinister turn in 2001 when Don Julian drowned in the canal just like the little girl.

Many people said that the dolls, inhabited by tortured spirits, conspired to murder the old man.

Others believe that Santana’s death was an accident and that since his passing,

the dolls have taken over his role as the island’s caretaker.

Although the island did not receive much tourist attention during Don Julian’s lifetime,

it has become a well-known attraction since then.

International television crews have filmed there several times, including one show that claimed to find proof the island is haunted.

Aokigahara is a woodland at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan that makes The Blair Witch Project forest look like Winnie the Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood. It probably has something to do with all the dead bodies scattered around.

What Niagara Falls is to weddings, Aokigahara is to suicide. How many suicides does it takes for a place to get that reputation? A dozen? Fifty?

More than 500 fucking people have taken their own lives in Aokigahara since the 1950s.

The trend has supposedly started after Seicho Matsumoto published his novel Kuroi Kaiju (Black Sea of Trees) where two of his characters commit suicide there. After that-always eager to prove they are bizarrely susceptible to suggestion-hundreds of Japanese people have hanged themselves among the countless trees of the Aokigahara forest, which is reportedly so thick that even in high noon it’s not hard to find places completely surrounded by darkness.


Also skulls.

Besides bodies and homemade nooses, the area is littered with signs displaying such uplifting messages like ”Life is a precious thing! Please reconsider!” or ”Think of your family!”


”If you commit suicide here, bears will poop on your corpse.”

In the 70s, the problem got national attention and the Japanese government began doing annual sweeps of the forest in search of bodies. In 2002, they found 78. But who knows how many they missed? In all likelihood there probably is a hanged person somewhere in Aokigahara on any given day.

By the way, if an entire dark forest full of hanged corpses wasn’t bad enough, a few years ago some people noticed that a lot of the dead in Aokigahara probably had cash or jewelry on them. Thus began the proud Japanese tradition of Aokigahara Scavenging where people are running around the Death Forest, looking for dead guys to loot.

Very very sad.
