Pastime


For the historical record, I have never done this. However, when dementia sets in, it's one of half a dozen potential scenarios.

Rost in Transration

When you leave the "west" and travel, you begin to note that "we're" not the only ones who wear t-shirts with sayings on them. 










The shirts below offer both cautionary advice - and suggestions for more meaningful romance.

The Perils of Grave Robbing



There aren't many of this class of old firearms from the 18th Century above ground. That's because they are firearms designed to take on grave robbers.


Grave robbers worked at night so as not to be seen, but this also meant that they may not see these guns mounted on a grave, and would probably not see the trip wires. 


Several trip wires could be fitted to the trigger mechanism, running in different directions. This not only covered a wide area, but it also meant that any one of these wires could swivel the gun in the direction of the intruder. (h/t)


They were referred to as "Grave Guns" or "Cemetery Guns".

Party?

Sometimes there is weird and sometimes weird takes on an entirely new meaning.
