Some of the More Bizarre Funerals

Entertainment

In our morbidity, we think about death…a lot. Probably too much, in fact. But what does it matter, in a hundred years we’ll all be dead anyway, right? Unless…life extension? We found ourselves talking about the trippiest possible funerals, viewing funerals as epic final goodbyes. Hunter S. Thompson had his ashes shot in the air […]

E.S.P

In a recent post for our friends, the Immortalists (they’re going to live forever), GD writer Jake Anderson speculated as to whether we’ll need life extension and augmentation in order to travel to the nearest star Alpha Centauri.

Adam Lanza’s Eerie Voice – One Year Before Newtown

E.S.P, Entertainment

In our morbidity, we find few things more engrossing than the minds of killers. We’ll probably never know what precise neurochemical demon haunted Adam Lanza before he killed 26 people in Newtown.

Photos of Chilling Mysteries From Centuries Past

Unexplained

We love old, creepy photos. And there is nothing more creepy than old photos of unsolved mysteries, or the final photos taken of people before their mysterious disappearance.
