macabre collections







Somewhere in the archives of the Bibliotèque nationale de France is this collection of ever-blooming sound-flowers.

And in the tower Great St. Mary's Church, in Cambridge, England, someone has stashed a collection of hangman's nooses! Or so it seems, but actually those are the bell pulls, for ringing the church bells. Still. Who knows what nefarious things may have happened in the tower while the bells were being rung?

I hope that during Halloween, they put fake skeletons in the nooses.

I get fooled by my screen, which shrinks or expands the image depending on how wide I've made the window. But I need to look at the original size!

It happens occasionally to everybody. Feels kind of unpleasant to complain, but sometimes the Friends Page can be out of whack for several days. Whatcha gonna do?

Nah, it's **Definitely** good to speak up. No one wants to be That Person.

ETA: meaning, nobody wants to be the person breaking the friends page!

Maybe on some styles. I have a real old LJ and sometimes my friends page is expanded to three or four times the screen width - usually from community posts, but sometimes individuals too. Maybe older styles don't have more modern features in hopes we will upgrade.

And then tell legends and ghost stories. I'm getting creeped out just thinking about it!
