Les Vampires - The Deadly Ring/La Bague qui tue (1915)
Only in Indonesia (especially Toraja), a corpse is usually being carried up to the grave, but in Toraja, the corpse is woken up letting it to walk to its grave (it is rarely performed anymore).
The corpse is woken up using black magic. This is done because in Toraja the graves/cemetries are placed above limestones mountains.
The corpse walks by itself, and it’s guided by an expert in black magic behind it. The corpse then falls down and isn’t able to walk again.
Hold the fuck up what is this shit.
WHOA WHOA WHOA
NO. WHAT. NO.
“Girl wake up we aint feeling like carrying yo ass, walk to yo grave please!”
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS REAL AHSJFHAHLSKHFKL
V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon) is a red variable star in the constellation Monoceros about 20,000 light years (6 kpc) from the Sun, and possibly one of the largest known stars. The previously unknown star was observed in early 2002 experiencing a major outburst. Originally believed to be a typical nova eruption, it was then realized to be something completely different. The reason for the outburst is still uncertain, but several theories have been put forward, including an eruption related to stellar death processes and a merger of a binary star or planets.
Rapidly brightening objects like novae and supernovae are known to produce a phenomenon known as light echo. The light that travels directly from the object arrives first. If there are clouds of interstellar matter around the star, some light is reflected from the clouds. Because of the longer path, the reflected light arrives later producing a vision of expanding rings of light around the erupted object. In addition, the rings appear to travel faster than the speed of light.
In the case of V838 Monocerotis, the light echo produced was unprecedented and is well documented in images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

I’ve only recently learnt about a light echo - but this image is simply amazing. You have to understand the distances that ‘dust’ is travelling - and to be able to see it in our lifetime is absolute madness.
