8 Creepiest Places in U.S. National Parks – Some nicely atmospheric photos.

Plush Octopus Backpack – This backpack by Hello, t’is Jen is impossibly adorable.

Why Horror is Good for You – Interesting article which argues that being scared can teach positive lessons. (via xJane)

Steel Hip Design – Etsy shop full of unique (and, sadly, commensurately pricey) steampunk jewelry. I particularly like the mad scientist necklace.

The Tell-Tale Tats – Edgar Allan Poe-themed temporary tattoos.

In Extremis – Subtitled “Bodies with No Regrets,” this photography project depicts people who have died and apparently faceplanted in the process. It’s certainly…unique. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

How To Tell If You Are In A Jane Austen Novel – “You have five hundred a year. From who? Five hundred what? No one knows. No one cares. You have it. It’s yours. Every year. All five hundred of it.”

Giant Isopod Sausages – Turn a boring cocktail frank into a cute li’l isopod!

Museum Selling Viking Ships – Just in case you ever wanted your own replica Viking ship.

    That is an adorable backpack! I almost expect it to slowly change color to match her…

    I want the astrolabe ring!

    “Someone you know has fallen ill. Not melodramatically ill, just interestingly so.” I know a few people who might require this helpful handbook.

    Buy a Viking ship‽ My funeral plans are complete!
