If the Cheerleader is American and sees the altered photo; who is responsible when she sues for $millions? Is the photographer responsible for causing mental anguish, even if s/he has relinquished copyright, or is it the person who Photoshopped the "shit"?

As well as the cheerleader hoax, I think this attempt to hit the 'brown note' is a hoax too. Well, not hoax exactly, but it's impossible to hit the _sub-harmonic_ 'brown note' when using the 20-100 Hertz _harmonic_ range produced by _audio_ speakers, no matter how big they are. In the mean time, I've read that the military-industrial complex is working on developing the _sub-harmonic_ range (<20 Hertz) into a weapon, and I suspect that isn't a hoax.

For decades coral snakes had a captive mortality rate of 100%. They simply do not feed in captivity. Force feeding them is very tricky since they have small heads, and are difficult to hold, and the venom is really super toxic. When the pharmaceutical industry decided that coral snake venom might have components worth exploring a means had to be devised to keep them alive to extract venom from them. A keeper devised a "sausage stuffer" that you thread into the snake's gullet through its mouth, and then inject chicken baby food into the stomach of the animal. You can see this in action if you like on You Tube, Search: "Eastern Coral Snakes, Care & Venom Extraction ". The video posted by "Viperkeeper" shows the feeding process starting around 16:00.
There are several variations on this theme, but the priciples are the same.

They're not "Euromyths", they're Eurolies. Myth would imply that the "journalists" perpetrating them did not know that they were printing untruths in black and white.

Thanks, Mike, for the book referral, I'll look for it. Find it interesting that so many people are familiar with this topic.

To Curator, yes, they misidentified Ralph as Robert. He has no memory of being interviewed, and he's mystified how the neighbor girl knew anything about this. He was only 6 when his mom was institutionalized. We did a records search for St. Peters and could only obtain an admittance and release card for Martha, but no medical records. Exact diagnosis remains unclear and mystifying. It's possible that during that time, the medical records were kept all in one book. However, it indicates she tried to escape twice from St. Peters and was caught.

The "Women of Asylum" book is a very compelling insight into what those institutions and years were like....some better than others. Women, particularly, were often confined unwillingly, on simply a husband and dr.'s orders. Reasons cited were "hysteria," or religious disputes with your family (therefore you must be crazy). I suspect that "hysteria" may be closer to untreated menopause symptoms....and interestingly, Martha had some undisclosed surgery at age 38 and then was admitted to St. Peter's at the age of 39. Medical treatment at the hand of institutional doctors for women was harrowing during that time.

If anyone else runs across any other info, articles, resources, please share! Thanks.

By the way, Cotard Syndrome was featured on an episode of "Black Box," oddly enough.
