Fuel to the Flame: 500 lb. body causes fire at Henrico crematory

Fuel to the Flame: 500 lb. body causes fire at Henrico crematory | ghantagiri.com
A crematorium off Mechanicsville Turnpike caught fire Wednesday afternoon as an employee was cremating a 500 pound body.

"The body was so obese that the actual body fat came off and went straight up the sack and hit the roof material, the rubber roof we have up there and that's what made it go up like it did…It was no negligence involved in it. My guys, we did all we could. Once it started, the grease hit the roof and started the fire"

In Praise Of Trolls And Trolling

In Praise Of Trolls And Trolling | Ghantagiri.com #ghantagiri
Trolling, in the form of pranks, has been a key outlet for the expression of creativity and humor for centuries. Physicist Richard Feynman was trolling when he stole his fraternity brothers’ door -- but his true master stroke came when he admitted his guilt and no one believed him. Tony Hsieh, chief executive of Zappos.com, is famous for office pranks. Our comedy, from "Borat" to "Jackass," is filled with trolls. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, of course, is the home of some of the most ingenious pranks in history.

Indonesian village’s bizarre annual ritual of digging up its dead

Indonesian village’s bizarre annual ritual of digging up its dead | ghantagiri.com
They say the dead live on in our hearts and minds - but in one Indonesian village, the deceased continue to walk the earth in a rather more literal, zombie-like fashion.

Families in Toraja in South Sulawesi dig up the bodies of their dead relatives before washing, grooming and dressing them in fancy new clothes.

Even dead children are exhumed - two of these photos show the skeleton of a baby wrapped in a print dress with a doll laid next to it.

Damaged coffins are fixed or replaced, and the mummies are then walked around the village by following a path of straight lines.

The ritual is called MaiNene, or The Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses, and takes place every August.

Man Proposes with 1,001 Hot Dogs #ghantagiri
When China's Wang Han decided to propose to his girlfriend, Zhen Juan Kang, he didn't do it with a dozen red roses. Instead, he used hundreds of hot dogs to spell out his everlasting love.

According to Kotaku, the pair first met three years ago at a hot-dog shop in Thailand. Since then, the couple have delighted in their mutual love of the pork-based semi-sandwich.

Grilled cheese store rescues music festival goers from having to pay $5 for bottled water

Grilled cheese store rescues music festival goers from having to pay $5 for bottled water #ghantagiri
At Portland, OR's Musicfest NW, the exclusive drink monopoly was given to the Dutch beer company Heineken. You were not allowed to bring water in and the vendors only sold food.

The Grilled Cheese Grill wasn't going to let something as minor as the law and a multi-billion-dollar beverage company that's survived two World Wars stop it, however. They were gonna sell water, dammit, even if they had to do it peanut by peanut, and they're weren't going to make the bottled water even more incredibly expensive than it already is.

The Real Reason Brazil Lost to Germany in the World Cup - Video

The Real Reason Brazil Lost to Germany in the World Cup - Video | DribblingMan.com
The soul-crushing loss that Brazil suffered at the hands of Germany on Tuesday had nothing to do with talent. Germany simply won the World Cup match because Brazil wasn’t even on the pitch during the game. Well, fine. This video may have been edited just a little bit.
