    I agree with Fiend4Halloween. This week’s roundup was particularly good.

    The one about having sex with demons piqued my curiosity. I’ve read various old documents warning against it, but I’d never thought about someone seeking such a thing out willingly.

    I also liked Pictures of Death. Some of the pictures in that link were strangely beautiful despite their dark subject matter.

    Rats are lovely. The poor little things get a bad rap, when mostly they’re just cleaning up after filthy humans.
