Sunday Burst of Weird and Awesome

Oddities and Awesome abound!

:: This is kind of creepy: the library of dust.

“In 1913, the Oregon State Insane Asylum began to cremate the remains of unclaimed patients and their ashes were stored in copper canisters.

After decades in storage the canisters have undergone chemical reactions resulting in explosions of vivid blue-green corrosion. Maisel was granted access to the room in which the canisters were stored to document them for his book.”

The full image of the room, with the cannisters all nicely arranged on the shelves like items in someone's pantry, is particularly troubling to behold.

Well...that's about it, I guess. This week really sucked, folks. We'll get better, though!
