  2. So Irish Jack-O-Lanterns Used To Be Horrifying (And Still Kinda Are)


    Hey, you know how most carved pumpkins this time of year are kind of light-hearted and cute? Because the Jack-O-Lanterns of 19th century Ireland—carved out of turnips, because nobody who lived in Europe had heard of pumpkins yet—were horrifying monster vegetables.

  3. This Game of Thrones Performance By “Brutal Ballet” Is The Most Metal Ballet Ever

    In the Game of Thrones ballet, you fouetté or you die.

  4. A Ghost Ship Filled With Cannibal Rats Is Headed for Britain, Because Real Life Is Crazy Sometimes

    No, that's not the setup for a 28 Days Later sequel but a real thing that's happening.

    The Lyubov Orlova is a cruise ship that's been floating around the ocean without its crew, and it has built in defenses in the form of zombie rats. Well, they're actually cannibal rats, but I'm going to go ahead and consider any angry horde that eats its own zombies. Better safe than sorry.

  7. NASA Satellite Takes “Extremely Rare” Cloud-Free Picture of Ireland

    Here's a belated St. Patrick's Day present courtesy of NASA: The space agency recently took this beautiful image of the Emerald Isle using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on its Aqua satellite. NASA says the picture is "extremely rare" because there's not a single cloud above the island: Ireland is cloudy at least somewhere almost all of the time, and according to the Irish Meteorological Service, "the sky is entirely cloudy more than 50 percent of the time."
