"...we should pass over all biographies of 'the good and the great,' while we search carefully the slight records of wretches who died in prison, in Bedlam, or upon the gallows."

Weekend Link Dump

Strange Company isn't saying it's aliens, but...

Behold this week's Festival of the Links:

What the hell is this skeleton?

What the hell are auras?

What the hell are dead people trying to tell us?

What the hell crash-landed in Australia?

What the hell crash-landed in Florida?

What the hell is creating African Fairy Circles?  Oddly, "African Fairies" doesn't seem to have occurred to anyone.

Who the hell was the Man From Taured?

Watch out for those breathtaking witches!

The strange case of the Malahide Murders.

The death of Samuel McAleese: murder or accidental homicide?

21st century Fire chief?  Or Civil War General?  Or both?

Forget calling this place a mere "library," I want to live here.

The Hoodoo House of Washington D.C.  No, no, not that big White one.

"Quoth the Granny, Nevermore!" doesn't have quite the same ring, does it?

A mysterious cave filled with "bowlders of gold."  All thanks to the Devil, of course.

Bird Millman, who really knew how to walk a thin line.

Here's your really depressing thought for the day:  What if Giorgio Tsoukalos winds up having the last laugh on us all?

A Soviet-era ghost town...in the Arctic Circle.

A peek at an ex-Kaiser in exile.

Ernest Case: a sad Man of Visions.

A look at the Gypsies of Georgian England.

The tomb of an ancient Egyptian child star.

In search of Belle Gunness.

The lowdown on Piltdown.

Grandison Harris, Georgia Medical College's personal grave robber.

And so we come to the close of yet another Link Dump.  Happy reading, and I'll see you all on Monday, with the saga of San Francisco's weirdest family.
