Welcome To The Most Haunted House In New York State

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); When we think of haunted buildings, we typically consider places like old hospitals, prisons, and asylums to be the creepiest of all. However, that’s not always the case. Take, for example, this old farmhouse in the town of Hinsdale, New York. It’s widely considered to be the most haunted structure in the state. It’s unclear exactly how the Hinsdale House (as it’s now known) came to be as haunted as it is now, but this story begins in the early 1970s when the […]

How They Used To Do Perms In The 1920s and ’30s Seems Outrageous By Today’s Standards

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); When looking through vintage photos from the 1920s and ’30s, you’re bound to come across a few odd-looking images. It’s easy to forget just how different things were back then. But in some cases, things weren’t just different. They were downright horrifying (at least from our modern-day viewpoint).

Asthma is a terrible condition, but luckily, we’ve gotten pretty good at helping people cope with it. Nowhere in the scientific literature does it say, however, that swallowing a live fish will help you with your breathing problems. Despite that, an estimated 100,000 people gathered at India’s Hyderabad’s Exhibition Ground earlier this month to do just that. This yearly tradition sees those with breathing problems pushed together to swallow live fish stuffed with herbal paste. The paste is created by the Bathini Goud family, and its ingredients […]

For most of us, it’s simply a matter of time until the stress of life drives us to the spa. Don’t laugh! More people do it regularly than you might think.

I’m specifically talking about the exotic (and occasionally dangerous) things that go on in “fish spas.” No, a fish spa is not a spa for fish. It’s a little weirder than that. iStock The […]

It Looks Like Water, But If You Touched It, It Would Probably Make You Very Sick

Mercury, as we all know, doesn’t do great things to the human body. Enough exposure to the substance can cause some serious damage, which makes it all the more shocking that an artist in Barcelona decided to construct this breathtaking fountain. While it looks pretty normal at first, this thing spews out liquid mercury. (source: mercuremiro) That really is some fine engineering work. The fountain is fortunately housed behind some thick glass to prevent the fumes from killing passersby. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/mercury-fountain/

The movement resulted in the brutal killings of 20 women before all was said and done. While the whole town bears the marks of these trials, one building in particular deserves the title of being the epicenter of evil. This is the Joshua Ward House. During the late 1600s, it was […]
