Sawney Bean
As the legend goes, Alexander “Sawney” Bean grew up in a town just outside of Edinburgh, Scotland. With no interest in making an honest living, he ran away with a woman to a one-mile-deep cave in the mountains. There they would produce their infamously large, incestuous family of cannibals.
The family supported themselves by robbing and murdering travelers, and even the locals. They would butcher their victims and pickle the flesh to be eaten later. Unwanted limbs were thrown into the sea and occasionally washed up on nearby beaches.
After nearly 25 years of killing and eating innocent travelers, the Beans were discovered when a man and woman traveling from a local fair were ambushed by the family. The woman was quickly murdered and had her innards eaten by the females. The man, however, fought back and was saved when a larger group of fair travelers passed by and came to his rescue.
The travelers reported to King James IV what had happened. The King then sent nearly 400 men and bloodhounds to the Beans’ cave, where they found barrels of pickled flesh, limbs hanging from the ceiling, and piles of money collected from the victims. The Beans did not fight back upon being found and were taken to Edinburgh where they were to be executed. 
The death of the Bean family was brutal and gruesome, much like the way that they killed their victims. The men had their arms and legs cut off and were left to die in agony. The women were forced to watch the execution of the men and were burned alive afterwards.

  • So, for example, I'm a Mage of Space. I could be a black dog that appears to herald someones death, and gets larger the closer the death is, or an oddly patterned owl that predicts relocation. Personally, I'd pick a doppelgänger that can move from A to B without traveling thru the intervening space. The potential to screw with people would be unearthly, and I wouldn't necessarily portend *bad* luck.

Women dressed as mermaids in Disneyland 1960

HOLLERS NO U DON’T UNDERSTAND!!!! Disney hired teenagers in the 60’s to literally be mermaids they held open auditions and the only requirements were that you had long hair and were a strong swimmer and they gave them mirrors and other props and they literally spent their days swimming and waving I heard a story once about sailors visiting the park and one of them jumped in with the mermaids THIS WAS JUST„ SO COOL I WANT TO BE A MERMAID! YELLs

I know someone whose Mom was one of the mermaids, it’s all very cool.

They had to stop because of the chlorine affecting the girls and because of men trying to jump in to get to them.
I would have loved to see Disneyland mermaids today though!
