New details of one of the few 'vampire' burials reserved for social 'deviants' in early medieval Britain have emerged.

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy..."

I wish I had a wife to complain about, L.

I traded mine in years ago for a trumpet.  Sadly, blowing a trumpet on your own ain't great and finding a replacement wife hasn't been as easy as you might think for a penniless alcoholic such as myself.  :(

In the Middle Ages, a person who committed suicide would also be buried under a crossroads with stakes through their body, to prevent them from rising from the dead.

  • Few things do more harm than the belief that life should be Dramatic.
