Bettie Page’s mugshot from October 29th 1972. Many of Bettie’s fans don’t seem to know that she left the pinup world and became a religious fanatic. Years later she was diagnosed as schizophrenic and eventually spent over 11 years in a state mental institution because she stabbed three people. A husband and wife the first time, and her 66 year old roommate the second time because she said “God inspired her to do it”.
A preserved “Rat King”. Rat kings are phenomena said to arise when a number of rats or mice become intertwined at their tails, which become stuck together with blood, dirt, ice, feces or simply knotted.
