Today, let’s talk about ghosts.

Ghost nations: For a brief few years after the Bolshevik uprising, there were several dozen new nations in the former Russia. Here’s a look at many of them, complete with flags! 

Ghosts on campus: There are a few at the University of Vermont. 

Possible ghosts of ancient history: Archaeologists have discovered what looks like a mass child (and young animal) sacrifice in Peru, and are trying to figure out why the sacrifice occurred.

Ghost chickens! Well, not really. This is all about the Chicken of Tomorrow campaign, which aimed at (and succeeded in) getting more Americans to eat chicken. It also led to a delightful documentary. (Clicking on either link is not recommended for vegetarians, however.)
