Chronicling the Unexceptional.

A collection of things I love. Pinup, vintage, BDSM, lingerie, beautiful humans and literary quotes.

There are nights
where dread fills me
and keeps me from sleeping.
Formulating my thoughts into words
is damn near impossible
but the pick up of my breath,
the pulling,
the scratching,
the silent tears
are all manifestations
of what I cannot say.



WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN

it means that some people think they are that worthless that they will settle for abusive love. they attract the people that treat them how they think they deserve to be treated. others may have their sense of self-worth so won’t settle for anything below what they deserve. how you view yourself is how you’re going to be treated is what it’s saying. so, if you think you deserve more for yourself, that’s what you’re going to get, but if you don’t think you’re a good person, you will settle for much less than you really do deserve. don’t depreciate yourself, because one day you’re going to find someone who will give you everything you deserve and more.

hey guys! here’s a compilation of the creepiest facts I could find (obtained from this reddit thread)
To deal with all the deaths during  the French Revolution, the government allowed for their bodies to be skinned and for that skin to be made into various items like books. SOURCE
The bobbit worm is a predatory worm that lives in corals. They can grow up to 10 feet long and their jaws can chew through coral and split a fish in two. SOURCE
Your body can sometimes think that its own healthy cells are bad, and will start to attack itself. SOURCE
A reddit user claimed that people around his country stopped eating seafood because after a tsuanmi, crabs and other sea creatures gorged themselves in corpses. 
Tourists staying at an LA hotel bathed, brushed teeth and drank water from a tank in which a young woman’s body was likely decomposing for more than two weeks (SOURCE)
Mattresses gain weight over time as they absorb dead skin , colonies of dust mites, oil and moisture. (SOURCE)
If you ever go climbing Mount Everest, you will come across over 200 dead bodies. (SOURCE)
Cannibals claim that human flesh tastes similar to pork. This may be why the idiomatic culinary term for human flesh is “long pig.” (SOURCE)

If you donate your body to science:
They can use you as a real crash test dummy 
They can cut your head off and use it in refresher courses for plastic surgeons 
They can leave you in a field and study how your body decomposes under different conditions (how would you decompose in the trunk of a car?)

Fecal bacteria is on 72% of shopping carts (SOURCE)
Bamboo grows really fast (1m per day) and can actually grow through a person. This was possibly used as a torture method. (SOURCE)
Cubone is called the lonely pokemon because it constantly wears its deceased mother’s skull like a helmet. (SOURCE)
