This is clever manipulation over real footage. These rides do not exist in real life, but oh man, could you imagine if they did? Just seeing it makes me queasy. Thank you angrynerdyblogger for posting it on the sixpenceee tag and bringing it to my attention. (Video)


A friend of mine told me this story last year when we were discussing studying abroad. It’s been an urban legend that supposedly has true roots:


A couple went to visit China. They went to a shopping mall. The woman, who had auburn hair and a tattoo of a rose on her hip, picked out a couple of dresses and tops and went to the fitting room to try them on. Her husband waited outside for her. 

20 minutes passed.

She still wasn’t done. He shrugged it off. 

30 minutes.

He started to get worried.

40 minutes.

He knocked on the door of the fitting room and no answer. He called in an employee, and the employee opened the fitting room door for him.

There was no one in there.

Confused and upset, the man spent hours looking for his wife but to no avail. The hours turned into days, and the days turned into months. He eventually gave up hope and went back home.

4 years later, the man returned to China. He went to visit a circus. He enjoyed it, except for the last moments where they had a sort of “human freak show.” There was a person with all of her limbs cut off. Her face was mutilated beyond recognition, and she was missing a tongue and eyeballs. However, he could distinctly make out a rose tattoo on the hips and bright auburn hair. 

Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.

What if they were all this size?

We don’t speak about painful irony, like seeing a doctor smoke or hearing about the school bus that ran over the child. We don’t want to remember the torment of how you get cut by the one who was supposed to throw away the blade.
Other people are not medicine.

No just no.

Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.
