"Hey buddy you have any LAMPS?!"

“I’d love to smack into it until I die”

The way moths are attracted to light is actually really interesting. The behavior is called phototaxis, positive phototaxis to be specific, cockroaches would be an example of negative, their reaction to light is to seek darkness as a way of avoiding predators. The leading theory is that they do it as a means of navigation.

The majority of known moth species are nocturnal after all, and when they usually fly around the moon is their guide. They use the moon as a point of reference so that they're able to fly in a straight line by maintaining their angle towards the source of light. However, they aren't able to distinguish the moon from an artificial source of light, like a lamp.

This leads to an interesting kind of situation. When they use the moon as a reference, the moon's position is consistent in terms of their field of view. The same isn't true with a lamp because it's a lot closer. Therefore, the moth uses the lamp as a reference, flies, sees the, "moon" has moved in their vision, assumes that they've accidentally flown off course, so they correct themselves, only to see the, "moon" change its position again.

This process continues, the moth keeps turning towards the lamp, constantly correcting their angle. In real time this results in a spiraling flight path that gradually gets closer and closer to the source of light. Sadly, the moth often ends up hitting the source of light, zapping or burning it to death. The process is hardwired into the moth's neurology, there is a tiny but distinct clump of neurons in many species' brains that guides it, this clump is humorously called the, "Icarus cell."

Reminds me of The Gwent card of Wticher 3's Whispess

Pretty cool picture!

Hello, my friend. Stay a while, and listen.

Filipino artist, Gregory Halili, carves intricate skulls into mother of pearl shells.

I really like this.

This is cool! Would love to have it inlayed on some furniture or something. Or a guitar but that might be too much.

I’m almost always disappointed with sculpted skulls because of the inaccuracy of teeth as most don’t even have the right number or types. This is THE MOST accurate depiction I’ve ever seen! Forget just having the right number and type; the morphology of each tooth, the bone level, the root eminences, even the Curve of Spee are done with absolute precision. That much attention to detail on the teeth makes the whole piece much more impressive to me

Nah serial killer.

Uzumaki: Spiral Into Horror by Junji Ito

Uzumaki: Spiral Into Horror by Junji Ito

Just read this recently and it's one of the most disturbing stories I've experienced. Ito is really a master of horror.

Is this the same guy who made that manga about those human shaped holes on the side of the mountain?

He's also the same guy who was supposed to work on the now cancelled, Silent Hills game alongside Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro.

Fuck Konami.

Man, Naruto got a lot weirder than I thought.

In Victorian England, it was common to take photos with the corpses of the recently deceased. The girl in this picture is dead

Technically speaking, all the people in these pictures are dead.

It's a way of remembering them. Photos weren't so commonplace, but memories still sucked. It seems morbid now, but those were very different times.

Ralph Waldo Emerson opened his wife's coffin after she'd been dead for over a year.

Dead man talking

I don't know man, maybe its modern techniques for keeping the deceased preserved or the make up jobs but I always find looking at relatives at the Wake is really uncanny. I'll view them and know that is absolutely not them.

I've taken to not viewing the bodies as it almost feels like an impersonation of my relative. I couldn't imagine even being forced to view a dead loved one after a year.

Can confirm, sorry for your break up I though you guys were going to marry.

Looks like the girl from the end of The Cabin In The Woods.

Would still put my dick in it

Capuchin Crypt

Capuchin Crypt

According to Wikipedia, "As monks died during the lifetime of the crypt, the longest-buried monk was exhumed to make room for the newly deceased who was buried without a coffin, and the newly reclaimed bones were added to the decorative motifs. Bodies typically spent 30 years decomposing in the soil, before being exhumed."

So I'm kind of interested, was there's a certain job back then to take all of the flesh off bones to do this with them? Because all of the skills are missing their jaw is seems like they would take all organs off, polish them and put them on display, however the skeletons on both sides with the robes look like that still have rotted flesh on them

I read this as Captain Crunch and became very confused when I maximized the picture...

I've always wondered about peoples fascination with Memento Mori's.

Huh, interesting. How we've gone to throwing bodies in pits for 30 years and digging them back up for display, to now burying them and celebrating their death.

Perfectly preserved tattooed skin

Perfectly preserved tattooed skin

Is there a back story or is this just a back story?

If there's no story, it's no skin off my back.

"moisturize me!"

"One of the specimens was of a piece of tattooed skin, off a sailor’s chest. I’m certain I wasn’t meant to take photos, but I just couldn’t help myself. Look at how fine those lines are! Pretty nice piece of work- usually you see these old piece on old people whose skin has blurred the lines over time. Seeing something looking like it did back then is really  interesting, the tools they had then were quite crude compared to our today, but this is nice quality considering."

“Hey buddy, did you hear that?! I’m scared can I sleep next to you tonight?”

And the monster looks like something from Spirited Away.

It's weird to think that skull once belonged to someone who walked and talked and probably deeply contemplated life went for a shit on a Sunday morning and stuff, and now his skull is this

+17 dark damage and also a +12% physical damage transformed to dark damage to all ally weapons while the instrument is being played
