After the Battle of Belchite in the Spanish Civil War the nearby town of Belchite was completely destroyed. Franco ordered that the ruins be left untouched as a “live” monument of war. A new town was constructed near the former. Filmmakers frequent the monument. The holes and caves in Lobo Hill south of Belchite from where the Spanish Republican artillery positions fired towards what is now Belchite old town have been preserved and are open to visitors.
so happy i get to carry this around with me always.

In late December of 2003, security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, a huge tudor castle near London, captured a startling image. Security guards were unsettled to repeatedly find a fire door open when no one was apparently around. Upon checking the security tape, they were shocked by a ghostly figure, closely resembling King Henry VIII (who died in the 1500s).
Vikki Wood, a spokesperson for the Palace, said “We’re baffled too—it’s not a joke, we haven’t manufactured it. We genuinely do not know who it is or what it is.” They aren’t a ppc company, or even a company looking to gain from this oddity; they are just as baffled like most people who look at this footage.
A security officer, James Faukes, called the incident “unnerving,” and said they’d ruled out their costumed guides. “In fact, they don’t even own a costume like the one worn by the figure on the video. It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn t look human,” Faukes said.
Before getting this tattoo I asked my daughter if she would be afraid of the skull and she replied, “No! Of course not. I have a skull in my head, why would I be scared?” Love the wisdom of four year olds.
