Default The Horrifying Necropants Of Iceland

I got this from another site I visit but though it interesting enough to share. Will for warn it's not pretty in image or making.

The Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft houses the only known intact pair of necropants, a beyond-disturbing item popularly used for purposes of traditional magic in seventeenth century Iceland. To make your own (and thus reap good fortune), strike a deal with a friend than whoever dies first will allow the other wear the lower half of their corpse as a pair of pants, day and night:

That... Is awesome!

I can't imagine ever actually doing it cause it sounds really inconvenient... And smelly... But it's cool.

May you find what you seek,
