In certain cemeteries in Guatemala, the family of the deceased is required to pay a rent to allow the body to remain entombed. If the family is ever unable to pay, the cemetery “evicts” the body and deposits them into a mass grave elsewhere, making room on the cemetery grounds for a more wealthy class of stiffs.
This series of pictures shows a great cat-tastrophie as a car traveling 75 mph down the highway accidentally kit a cat crossing the road. The drive assumed the animal had been killed and was shocked later to discover that the feline’s body was stuck in his bumper… and was still alive! The cat was extracted and, surprisingly, suffered only a few injuries. We are assuming that it will be using its eight remaining lives to plot revenge.
On March 21, 1947 New York City police were called to the home of Homer and Langley Collyer due to complaints about a strange odor. When they broke inside, the police were confronts with over 150 tons of hoarded books, newspapers, furniture, musical instruments, and many other items. Not only was the home loaded with junk, but there were several booby traps in the halls to ensnare any would-be intruders. It wasn’t long before police found the body of Homer Collyer. Homer, who had been paralyzed, had been dead for about ten hours. His hair was matted and his bathrobe was in tatters. He had apparently died of starvation and heart disease. Rumors about Langley swirled for a while. Some claimed that they had seen him on a train, others said that it was Langley himself who had called the police in the first place so that he could abandon his brother and move on. The fate of Langley Collyer was finally put to rest when his body was discovered less than ten feet from where Homer’s body had been. Police figured that, while he was crawling through a tunnel in their hoarded belongings, he had accidentally tripped one of his own booby traps and was buried in books and newspapers. He suffocated to death while his bother, unable to take care of himself, died of starvation.
