30 Days of the terrible things that live beneath the skin of the world – A Summary

30 days ago I decided that I would disseminate a selection of the various weird subjects I had come across on Facebook and Twitter. For two main reasons, the first being that I think most of these things are genuinely interesting or intriguing and its always good to know more. The second being that I wanted to give myself some impetus to read or re-read the rather large amount of material (literally thousands of pages) I had amassed. The second reason has borne fruit and I’m hoping that the first did likewise for anyone who has been following along. I’ve collected all of the “entries” in the “series” here.

Day 1

I’ve amassed a giant backlog of odd shit to read through. The real world is fucked up. So each day for the next month I’m going to post a link to something odd or interesting (more in order to force myself to read them than to illuminate you guys). So I’ll ease in gently – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phaistos_Disc

Day 2 – Link the second – http://www.miaminewtimes.com/1997-06-05/news/myths-over-miami/

Day 3 – One was rather short and one was more real and depressing than weird, so its a two for one Sunday special http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babalon_Working & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_731

Day 4 – I cant imagine anyone isnt familiar with the first so I added the second (who is quite possibly my second favourite historical figure) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MKULTRA and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilles_de_Rais

Day 5 – The first ones again rather common knowledge but he is my favourite historical personality bar none – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Count_of_St._Germain. The second is tragically nowhere near as cool as it sounds – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Thetford_flesh-hook. The third one arguably is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demon_core.
