Spooky stuff from the past: watch Franz Reichelt attempt to "fly" off the Eiffel Tower in this silent 90-second clip from 1912. He didn't succeed, and his non-success is rather spectacular. The French police helpfully measure the crater he created upon impact with the ground, which is probably not exactly what he was hoping for.|
The New York City underground is explored and documented via Netherworld. Watch out for snakes! And CHUDs! And LARPers!
Spooky stuff from the present: Teflon is evil and is going to kill us all. Oh, great.
Not really spooky, but interesting if you're into this sort of thing: The website for the DaVinci Code film has all sorts of puzzles and cryptograms and whatnot to solve.
Not spooky, just cool: The ViaReggio carnival in Italy begins this weekend! Check out the descriptions of the floats - they're very intricate.
