"One of the most interesting things about Elizabeth Turner was her Kiss of Death. Throughout the trilogy, all of the men she locked lips with has died - including Sao Feng in At World’s End, and (if you want to be petty about it) her father, Weatherby Swann. Usually they would die moments after kissing her for the first time. This excludes Will Turner who has kissed her several times before and beat the odds every time. However, even he succumbed to her kiss and died as well minutes after the two were hastily married by Barbossa.

This is most likely a just coincidence and not something that was intentional, but years later it’s still fun to point out to friends and watch a dawn of realization hit their face when they realize that Pirate Queen Elizabeth may have also been the Grim Reaper.”

In a groundbreaking study, researchers reveal a host of new genes involved in schizophrenia, making it possible to develop desperately needed treatments

It took 80,000 genetic samples, seven years and the work of 300 scientists from around the world, but scientists now have the most complete dossier on schizophrenia ever.

In an historic paper published in the journal Nature, the Schizophrenia Working Group of the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium identified 108 new regions on the genome linked to the psychiatric disorder, which is associated with hallucinations and psychotic episodes and affects about 1% of people worldwide.

Scientists begin to crack the code on schizophrenia, identifying 108 genes involved in the disorder. Complement with the relationship between creativity and mental illness, with a special focus on schizophrenia.  (via medicalschool)

I don’t even live in Japan but I’m a little freaked out right now.

I didn’t compile this list, I got it from here

Here’s the Tomino’s Hell poem for those of you brave enough to read it out loud.

Also the original Cow’s Head story, which supposedly makes you die from fright is said to have no known copies around. 

I used the slit mouth woman story as a plot line for an rp. It was fun researching it. I love urban legends. I was terrified of La Llorona growing up.
