The Hinterkaifeck Murders

Wikimedia Commons Wikimedia Commons

I love reading about unsolved mysteries, especially weird/creepy ones, and the Hinterkaifeck murders is one of most fascinating to me.

A farmer in Germany back in the 1920s had noticed mysterious footprints in the snow around his house. There was also strange stuff happening around the farm. Footsteps in the attic, a newspaper that no one in the family had bought, and eventually the house keys disappeared. What makes it stranger is that the housekeeper had left a few months prior, swearing up and down that the farm was haunted.

The family suddenly went unseen for a couple of days. Their neighbors went to check on them, only to find the entire family as well as their newly hired housekeeper had been murdered. Most of the family had been lead into the barn one by one and slaughtered with what’s believed to have been a…

I Found A Box Containing The Story Of A 19-Year-Old Girl Who Killed A Random Person For No Reason

Read it.

Thought Catalog

box

So this is a box I found that was hidden in a mall for presumably ~6 months by now. Aside from the latch, there were rubber bands keeping the box shut. Inside the box is a bundle of tightly-folded pieces of paper. It is a story/recollection written by a 19-year-old girl who has apparently killed a random person just because she was wondering what it would be like. According to the paper, she wrote this just a few hours after the murder and that I am the first person to read it.

So yeah, I doubt I’ll be able to sleep tonight.

Anyway, I typed up the entire story because I seriously need to share this. Here it is…

If you found this note in a small wooden box with a heart on it, then *congratulations!* You are probably the first person to read this. I didn’t really plan on…

Repost Series #6: Is That Really True? We Investigate Common Beauty Myths

Beauty Myths

“I’m trying to wash my hair less so it stops being so greasy.”

“Don’t put makeup on that zit, it’s gonna make it worse!”

“Once you shave it, it grows back twice as thick.”

Persistent and timeless, passed down from generation to generation, beauty myths dictate lots of our daily beauty routines. We’ve all heard them, we’ve all come to believe they’re true, but… are they? We took a closer look at five common beauty myths.

MYTH: You can “train” your hair to be less greasy.

This persistent hair myth that your locks can get “addicted” to shampoos has followed us around since middle school. The thinking behind it all is that your hair will produce more oil, the more you strip it of oil, thus forcing you to wash it more and more. That you can “break the cycle” by not washing it as much. But most hair experts agree that matter how much you wash your hair, whether it’s every day, every other day, or once every two weeks, your scalp pumps out oil at the rate your body tells it to. You cannot “train” your hair to produce less oil by shampooing your hair less. This will never happen. If you have fine hair, it’s going to get oiler faster than hair that is thicker or textured. And it will look better when it’s freshly washed. And this will probably never change.

Verdict: NOT TRUE

MYTH: Chocolate, pizza, and French fries cause acne.

Hang on a sec, that’s the pizza guy downstairs. Okay: Chocolate, pizza, and French fries themselves don’t cause breakouts, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. It’s not like you eat a French fry and BOOM!—get a zit. No. However, a diet based heavily on junky foods can definitely trigger breakouts, because the skin isn’t getting the nutrition it needs to keep its oil production regular, fight infections and bacteria, and be clear and glowing. And other dietary factors (including sensitivity to sugar or gluten) can impact your skin. So the moral of the story is: random pizza night? Chocolate binge? Your skin probably won’t care. Pizza every night? Chocolate all day every day? You may pay for that with a breakout.

Verdict: NOT TRUE

MYTH: Hair grows back thicker after you shave it.

Would someone like to call my Nana and tell her this is a total myth? I’d do it, but she moves fast for someone her age and wears a lot of rings. Here’s the truth: the hair shaft tapers at the end. When we shave, we’re cutting into the middle of the hair shaft, creating a flat edge, so it feels thicker and stubblier when it grows back. We notice the stubbly regrowth a lot more than we did when we had a virgin forest of soft, long, tapered-at-the-end hair on our heads, crotches, or legs. Yes, I said a virgin forest of leg hair.

Verdict: NOT TRUE

MYTH: Putting makeup on zits makes them worse.

Depends on the makeup, darlin’. If you’ve got a big zit and are trying to cover it up with an oil-based or heavy cream concealer, it might piss the zit off even more. But if you’re using a noncomedogenic, nonacnegenic product, you should be just fine. Stage makeup and grease paint = bad. Light, acne-fighting coverage = no problem!

Verdict: SOMEWHAT TRUE

MYTH: Split ends can be repaired.

I know there are lots of shampoos and serums and conditioners out there that claim to “banish split ends!” but (I hope you’re sitting down) these products are telling you tales. There’s only one way to get rid of split ends, and that’s to cut them off.  Products that claim to banish split ends are misleading, promising that they can help prevent split ends from forming with special moisturizers and nutrients. Split ends are a natural part of life—the ends of your hair are the oldest parts of your hair, and they have gone through months of sun exposure, hot showers, and heat styling. Now, you can put serums and creams in hair to help it look healthier, but there is no product under the sun that can actually heal split ends. Hair is dead, friends. You cannot heal the dead.

Verdict: NOT TRUE

17 Signs You’re a Low-Maintenance Girl (Totally Me!)

Just can’t help re-posting this article from Female Network.

 								17 Signs You're a Low-Maintenance Girl

Low-maintenance girls are probably enjoying life more than anyone else. Not to be confused with being lazy, these ladies simply prefer a clutter-free life—may that mean actual items or personal drama. Are you one of them? Check out the signs below!

1. Your beauty essentials consist of not more than five products, and that already includes shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste. “Because they are, indeed, enough!”

2. You’re okay with sleeping in old t-shirts. “No one will see me anyway,” you always say.

3. You think shopping is a chore. “I go to the mall to buy stuff I need to replenish. It’s never a pastime, okay?”

4. No-makeup look? More like no makeup at all. “Applying makeup takes so much time. Always!”

5. Okay, so you do wear makeup when you have time and on special occasions. “Of course, I still like to prettify myself.”

6. You’ve never lifted a muscle to blow-dry your hair.

 								17 Signs You're a Low-Maintenance Girl


 “OMG, people. The air outside is free.”

7. Speaking of hair, your favorite hairstyles are lugay, ponytail, or a bun. “It’s not like I’m in a beauty contest where people will judge me if my hair is not a perfect 10.”

8. Salons are for haircuts and dye jobs, not for hair spas and other rejuvenation shizz. “Waste of time and money, friends.”

9. You don’t mind seeing roots when you lack time to get your hair color retouched. “There are other ways to hide it until I remember to visit the salon.”

10. You’re also not bothered by a chipped mani, or you’re okay with a set of freshly-clipped nails you trimmed yourself. “It’s just nails. Jeez.”

11. Owning an uso piece of clothing does not move you. “If it doesn’t look good on me, even if it’s the hottest piece in the world of fashion, I shall not buy it.”

12. Your superhero strength? You can get dressed in under 10 minutes!

 								17 Signs You're a Low-Maintenance Girl

“Shower. Check! Top. Check! Bottoms. Check! Shoes. Check! Bag. Check! Okay, I’m ready!”

13. You don’t need a fancy dinner to enjoy a romantic evening with your man. “DVD marathons and unlimited boxes of pizza at home are splendid! As long as I am with my beau, it will always be the sweetest thing!”

14. An awesome Saturday night doesn’t need to happen in a bar or club. “A quaint coffee shop trip with my BFFs is all I need to make my weekend amazing.”

15. You don’t mind commuting to get to your destination. “I can still get there in one piece.”

16. You totally appreciate the gesture and the thought more than a gift’s price tag. “Awww…You remembered!”

17. And the best part: You’re totally rocking your personal style without feeling the need to please others. Kudos to you!
