Human-Skin Lanterns and other True-life Oddities
Real life can be more bizarre than the movies.  In this thread, I hope to garner those true-life oddities. Some of them can be old ones such as the Human-Skin Lanterns--or the Oddities can also come from current events.
To introduce the thread, I'll begin with the human-skin lanterns. Specifically, those were lamp-shades made of human-skin.  Those were made by John Gein who was quite an oddball.  But in his day, he was quite famous because there is even a 1-hour documentary about him on YouTube.  His human-skin lanterns were bizarre, but I guess you could also call them macabre.
So if anybody else can contribute any other True-life Oddities to this thread, I would be very interested.  As the saying goes--Truth is Stranger Than Fiction.
Just here to say: His name was Ed Gein. Edward Theodore Gein. Not John...

Okay, Rodent, thanks for the correction.  Actually I knew it was Ed so I don't know how the blooper slipped by.

Yes, Miss B, I suppose it is.  While you're at it about the Chinese, let me add that the Siamese twins were actually Chinese. But when they were found, they were living in Siam, so they are called Siamese twins.  And that became the term to name those whose bodies are anatomically conjoined together.
Residents of an apartment building in Kerala, India, were surprised on February 3rd 2020, when a mixture of beer, brandy, and rum began flowing from their kitchen faucets instead of water. Officials told the BBC that about 6,000 liters of alcohol confiscated on court orders had been buried in a pit nearby, but it seeped through the soil into the well used as a water source for the building.
