Stunning photos of Poveglia - the most haunted place in the world - which is now up for sale by the Italian government. Photos include the mass graves of plague victims, the skull of a “vampire” with a rock shoved in it’s mouth to keep it from biting people, and the collapsing ruins of the insane asylum.

"A quarantine station, a dumping ground for plague victims, more recently a mental hospital — the tiny island of Poveglia in the Venice Lagoon has served many unpleasant purposes over the years, but today it stands empty, a crumbling collection of abandoned buildings and weeds run riot just two miles from the glittering palaces of the Grand Canal. Legends and rumors about Poveglia are nearly as pervasive as the weeds, and they read like a horror story: that so many people were burned and buried there during the black plague that the soil is 50% human ash; that local fishermen give the island a wide berth for fear of netting the wave-polished bones of ancestors; that the psychiatrist who ran the mental hospital was a butcher and torturer who went mad from guilt and threw himself from the island’s belltower, only to survive the fall and be strangled by a "ghostly mist" that emerged from the ground."

Apparently I’m 91% psychopath, it explains a lot


21%! Phew

52% psychopath. Oh dear.

39% “everything in moderation, including moderation” has me down perfectly :)

I think I took this test a few months ago but I don’t remember the result. In any case, I took it again, and… 61% psychopath. Should we be worried?? (I wonder if the results vary a lot depending on one’s particular mood at the time of taking the test? Maybe I should take it every day for a month or something and then take the average and perhaps some other statistics of the scores.) Wait… do I seem psychopathic to you, at least?

33%

45% fuck

33 percent… I thought I’d be more. Huh.

18% aw yis 

52% psychopath …Well, that explains a few things."Though your conscience is in the right place you also have a pragmatic streak and generally aren’t afraid to do your own dirty work! You’re no shrinking violet - but no daredevil either. You generally have little trouble seeing things from another person’s perspective but, at the same time, are no pushover. ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’ might sum up your approach to life."

"You don’t have to wait for anyone’s approval to do things. You don’t have to try to get a job and go through set steps before you start a career or start your life. That’s what I want young girls to know - you can do anything you want. Just start."

(via Mob moll, 1931 - Mob molls of New York City: Female companions of Mafia men - NY Daily News)
Not sure of the significance of the timing, but today’s NY Daily News digs into its archive to make a slide show dedicated to “Mob molls of NYC” (circa 1920s-1960s).

Behind every great man is a great woman, and behind every great gangster is an equally great mob moll! Take a fascinating look at the female companions of the New York City Mafia, who not only put their lives on the line being associated with some of the most dangerous men in the world, but who also acted as their accomplices in some of the most deadliest crimes

The show includes images of Virginia Hill, Janice Drake, and Lottie Coll. Wish the captions probed a bit deeper into how these photos were staged for journalists by law enforcement to promote the prosecution’s POV on those depicted.
