DMV: We Used to the Waiting

Poveglia: 'World's most haunted island' up for sale...is anyone brave enough to buy it? →

lotrlockedwhovian:

The island Poveglia, in Venice, Italy: It is supposed to be one of the most haunted places on earth because plague victims were taken here to die. They estimate the number of bodies that were burned here to be in the tens of thousands. They say the soil is make of human ash and bone and the place is referred to as straight up evil. Later, it was turned into an asylum for the mentally insane where patients were often driven to fits of insanity because they reported seeing ghosts of the plague victims….

And someone is going to buy it and there is talk that a good idea for the property would be to turn it into a hotel…horrifying yet somehow my eyes widen in morbid delight.


Impressive SNL — I expected the first fart joke a lot sooner than this. Rogen and Aidy Bryant show off their physical comedy here as a couple who have trouble communicating. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but hearing Bryant call her breasts “flying saucers,” watching Rogen apply lipstick, and seeing the stars trying to contain their laughter after the aforementioned fart joke is good enough to elicit laughter.
